Re: Looking for Aiki (in all the wrong places)

@ Ron,
I do appreciate the greater depth. Not sure though I'm following the fine distinction.

In aikido, I'm interested in the how of it, as well as the why. I do want to know the reason, cause, and purpose. I'm especially fascinated by the chain of causality that occurs in a successful aiki encounter, what all successful encounters might have in common, and the extent to which we can affect/effect the causal field so as to make successful aiki closer to inevitable.
