Re: A Solid Idea
I particularly liked the Aiki Syntax article in the link.
I might have misunderstood your description of this model and how it relates to aikido but I'm wondering in what kind of situations violence - physical but especially psychological - could be necessary or constructive.
I can see how the exclusion principle could be an interesting way of interpreting irimi. But in discussing relocation I think an intersection in space and time is necessary for musubi. And I wanted to add as an extension of the exclusion principle that it's a good idea to stay out of dangerous places!
Thanks, Ross. Best wishes for the holidays and for 2011, Niall
