Tao Te Ching Chapter 22-12 Aikido
Simply, he doesn't compete. That's why no one under the sky can compete with him. (Ch.22)
Do not compete.
Then, no one can beat you.
This is the essence of Aiki-do 合気道.
Ai 合 means synchronizing.
Ki 気 energy.
Do 道 Tao.
The Tao of synchronizing the energy.
We do not fight. We just create harmony with our opponent.
In the Today's Tao sentence, we have the expression "under the sky". It means your hologram.
It is useless to compete with characters or images you create in your hologram.
This world is already in the state of Ai-ki 合気 the synchronized energy.
We just forget it sometimes.

-Tatsuo Kimura on the left, an Aikido budoka of Daito-ryu, one of the highest disciples of late Yukiyoshi Sagawa, is the author of «Transparent Power». Some people say that Sagawa may be the greatest budoka ever lived in Japan, who might be much stronger than Miyamoto Musashi, the author of «The Book of Five Rings». Tatsuo Kimura on the right, a mathematician of the highest degree, working with Fourier transforms and Reimann's zeta function, is a professor at University of Tsukuba and the author of Introduction to Prehomogeneous Vector Spaces (Translations of Mathematical Monographs). Are they the same person? Yes, they are. If you are scientifically skeptical about Aikido, ask this genius.
