in answer to shadows previous comments about science, I'd like to point out that when aikido works, it is precisely because of certain scientific principals. Things involving gravity, physics and the dynamics of motion. Things that are known in great detail because a lot of years of study have gone into them and things you can study and witness yourself at home without having to involve any scientists. Things that dont change.
It's one thing to be open minded and explore into the realm of the unknown and the unexplained. it is a totaly different matter to just like an idea and then 'believe' in it to the point of refusing to examine whether it is actualy a truth or not. Call that skeptecisim if you like. The first one of you to learn to fly and or teleport can come hold a class and i'm sure we'll all benifit.
