Re: 050) Intended Movement Without Conscious Intention: Week of August 23, 2009

My friend and I were talking last night and he told me about these Japanese researchers who were working on a body suit
I hear Mike S will build you a 'Suit'

This research finding confirmed my belief that conscious, intended movement can be perceived by someone else, even without physical contact. 
Nothing new here, just ask any old Ki Society guy - everyone projects ki before they move

The concept of intended movement without conscious intent corresponds to the saying that when you are in a fight, if you have to think about what you do, it is too late.
Yup, anyone who has ever been in real fight will tell you that you don't think, you just do...

We artificially separate "the mind" from "the body". 
You won't find that happening with Tohei's Aikido with 'Mind and Body Coordinated'

On a more serious note Marc, I hear what you are saying in the blog - and I am with you on all of it!
