If people want to call that misdirection and "catching" someone or their intent "aiki" why not just let them do it? Ueshiba didn't really seem to care too much as he did it himself and to some degree he seemed to approve of people practicing with that intention.
This is very reasonable especially given the quotes on this thread, the founder himself was saying that. To me, the strong emotional reluctance to "share" Aiki presented here, is most interesting.
