In this it is like a perfect sculpture. It is like life. It is like us, or God. Period.

Well, since you have put it so baldly, perhaps an equally bald reply is called for. I do not think that a perfect scuplure, life, us, or God, are similar kinds of thing at all. Thus, your simile is unilluminating.

Ultimately, aikido is training or practice, but, as with other types of human activity, we can indeed reflect both on the fact that we train and also the questions what and why.
