David, I'm not going to adress your last post because I feel you are not going to change your mind nor you change mine, but
Of course, if I were going to make scientific claims about any of it, I would go to more trouble to document exact statements and cite exact sources, none of which is necessary in making casual, conversational, non-scientific comments.
When you consider appropiate to switch from casual to scientific mode (or at least proper historical methodology) regarding this subject (Ueshiba's power), let me know.
Until then I'm done with your approach to the issue at hand. I have better and more productive things to read than hearsays and unsupported statements.
