Re: A Solid Idea

Hi Ross,

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

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
