Re: Aikido Aikibojitsu and the Structure of Natural Law

I'll have to read up more, but is it correct to say the use of asymptote is directly related to the effects of "limit" in calculus? Isn't it just describing limits with respect to geometry of motion (spirals, etc.)? One analogous movement being to keep aite at the very limits of stability in order to maintain control; maintaining some space along the continuum in which, theoretically, aite can approach but never touch?
That's how I've been applying the term...for what little I've been paying attention to it. I have no clear idea what it denotes and my calculus classes were a decade ago and bastardized by years of irrational poetry writing.
