On The Lash: Aye Aye Kiddo!

I have been pleasantly surprised three times in the last two days, Dear Reader. Whilst I was writing the last ‘On The Lash’ post, I was seriously considering adding in something about Aikido. Lashy seemed a bit agitated and I was wondering if he’d heard of it…

Email 011014 from Roob to Leggy about Aikido

*Ye oldy email to Legs, Clicky… /lights up… Shame my Sync Miss For Him shamble is now gone… /drags… but the MEROVEE comet is still alive…*

Meet The New Boss

As a person who is accused of causing harm by a group that does nothing BUT cause it, all whilst wrapping themselves in the cloak of ‘harm reduction’, I’m just not prepared to demean myself by stooping to their level, becoming just like them…

Aikido (Japanese: 合気道Hepburn: aikidō[aikiꜜdoː] is a modernJapanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba as a synthesis of his martial studies, philosophy, and religious beliefs. Aikido is often translated as “the way of unifying (with) life energy” or as “the way of harmonious spirit”.

Ueshiba’s goal was to create an art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury.

The Ki to harm reduction…

Well, Dear Reader, you could have knocked me down with a feather as I listened to the next John Lamb Lash talk, posted on Christmas Eve night, when he brought up the subject of Aikido!

‘Likewise, you can think of apposition as a technique of psychological warfare, like Aikido. It’s very similar to Aikido. The Aikido Master, who I had the opportunity to meet when I was in Japan… In Aikido, the Master uses the incoming force of the opponent to overcome the opponent. In a skillful way it’s a method of apposition, it’s not a method of direct body contact, direct opposition.

‘So Aikido uses the force of the attack to overcome the attacker. I’m showing you how to use the force of the attack on the Romay and Sophia coming from the Xenosh, to overcome and demolish the Xenosh.’

*Yeah… /taps ash… Lashy includes a hammer in there but I’m reminded of what my martial arts practicing osteopath told me when he fixed up my frozen shoulder that time, Clicky… /drags… I asked him about aikido and helping the opponent to the floor, and he replied, “The floor? The floor is fucking hard.” …Nice man, fixed me up a treat…*

The second pleasant surprise was to read the Christmas post at Twilight Language and find it linked to one of my Kubrick posts! I told Thoughtful Man that he’d seen the blog owner, Loren Coleman, on the telly…

*Yeah, I don’t think he believed me, Clicky… /final drag… Or he was too busy cooking dinner… /stubs butt…*

Pleasant surprise number three then, Dear Reader, was last night’s Christmas Doctor Who episode…

*/chortles… Feminists must of been fuming that the first thing the first female Doctor does is blow up the Tardis and then fall out of it… /lights up…*

Enjoy the rest of Boxing Day, Dear Reader… And have a Song ❤

  1. It occurs to me, that if these researchers or whatever they are, only post/make public their findings? We’ve no context. They only show us where and what they think is right…not where they got it wrong to arrive at right. When they DO include wrongs, they are hypotheticals created from or based on their rights, and not necessarily what is correct. Which says to me, they are approaching “correct”, or at least their estimation of correct, incorrectly. They certainly aren’t approaching us with this “news” in the same way that they arrived at it.

    That said, that raises some interesting thoughts with respect to “looking up The Creator’s skirt” and/or “peeking under the flaps of The Creator’s tent”…for lack of a better parlance.

    That’s kinda what I related to my son one day when talking about the concept of “The Philosopher’s Stone”.

    Let’s say that you come into possession of The Philosopher’s Stone. The first thing you are going to do, is start to pick it apart. Luckily, in my illustration to my son, The Creator was present when marveling at this invention…
    /me holding Stone and inspecting it…
    Cade: Say! This part right here. Why didn’t you try “this” instead of “that”?
    X: Funny you should mention that. I did try that there.
    Cade: Oh. Cool. So… it may have worked for a while, then not so much later?
    X: Maybe.
    Cade: Fair enough.

    That’s the best that I could muster at the time, but it was about second guessing, but more than that, it was about learning about time and times over time(s). Boats with sails used to be good enough to some interests. Now, not so much. However, they are still PLENTY “good enough” for many interests.

    Straw “first”, and straw “last”, are equally “the straw that broke the camel’s back.

    I dunno…just rambling.

    I don’t think that someone with something to sell necessarily negates what they’ve found. We live where we live, and everyone’s gotta eat. There’s shit laying everywhere just waiting to be found. People prolly also fall into that “waiting to be found” category as well. Not that I am implying that people are shit, or need to be in shit to be found. But that sure seems to occur here and there. I dunno. Something about blessings or something.

    Great read Roob. Thanks for it. ❤
