Reading and thinking about training != real training.
I agree thinking about Aikido isn't the same thing as doing it, but I do think what we're really training most of the time is our mind/body integration. We are already physically capable of doing essentially perfect techniques every time, it's the mind which we work on when we're on the mat...hence I can see how thinking "aiki" might make a difference...even if only slightly so.
