Re: Is ki just good physics?

We all have differing degrees of awareness within our bodies. Conscious awareness is a remarkable thing, to say the least. Yoga notably enhances one's sensitivity to their own body, and over time, Aikido seems to enhance the practitioner's sensitivity to uke's body. By extension, even into the environment, hypothetically speaking. We haven't invented a meter that detects the energy of awareness, but of course, if we can know anything, we know it exists. You probably can't do a Jedi mind trick with it, but good connection with uke sure helps with kokyunage.
