Re: "stance of heaven (and earth)" and IS

As Lee mentioned, the correlation of the term 'heaven and earth' as to a type of stance is not something I would say.
Well, I heard a shihan who studied with o sensei say that Ueshiba Morihei refered to standing with the feet closer than usually taught today as a "stance of heaven and earth".
So my question is wether there may be an "advantage" in terms of IS.

Thank you for your detailed explanations!
