Two Hundred and Twenty-seven

To closely coordinate my mind and body I must bring the temporal difference between the processes of my mind and the actions of my body as close to zero as possible. I must endeavor to remove conscious assessment from the "sense-process-act" loop in order to bring mind and body into tight temporal alignment.

Coordination of mind and body enhances correct feeling. Heightened correct feeling warps Ki in much the same way that mass warps the geometry of spacetime. One characteristic of a high degree of correct feeling is that my partner will notice an increase in my resistance to being moved if stationary or an increase in my weight if in motion. I call this perceived mass, a subjective quantity observed by my partner. Intensified correct feeling will also cause an slowing of subjective time as perceived by me.

Ki exercises, Ki testing and technique practice have the common goal of coordinating my mind and body in order to maximize correct feeling and realize my strongest and most dependable state.
