OK, I was being facetious.

Actually Dan is at least partly right. It could be claimed (as Chris argues in his article) that the essence of aiki is the principle of yin/yang, or the creative union of opposites. This is a fundamental idea in taoism, even though the "Floating Bridge of Heaven" is framed in terms of Japanese mythology.
