Kenpo Gokui

The lines of the ken-po goku-i are set from an atomistic aspect simply because it is the manner in which the brain learns. Its nature is completely holistic and like the I Ching must be in a form that promotes learning and understanding so a person can see, hear and grasp the nature of a holistic system. The gokui is a method to teach us how to be holistic. Its terseness is the best that can be done to convey its holistic meaning.

A person's heart is the same as Heaven and Earth while the blood circulating is similar to the Sun and Moon yet the manner of drinking and spitting is either soft or hard while a person's unbalance is the same as a weight and the body should be able to change direction at any time as the time to strike is when the opportunity presents itself and both the eyes must see all sides as the ears must listen in all directions while the mind must grasp all the tactual data not seen on all sides and not heard in any direction.

A person’s heart is the same as Heaven and Earth while circulatory system is similar to the cycles of the moon and sun yet the breathing methods are either hard or soft while one’s posture should allow one to advance, retreat, engage, and disengage as the body should be able to act in accordance with time and change so that one must enter a state of emptiness (mushin/zanshin) allowing the eyes must see all sides and the ears should listen in all directions while the mind must grasp all the tactual data not seen on all sides and not heard in any direction. - My rendition per translation from Andy Sloane Sensei.

The Tao of Yin-Yang (Physics)

Blog Article/Post Caveat (Read First Please: Click the Link)

When speaking of the physics of four dimensional space concerning the time-space relativity element physicists use a model that helps us visualize this due to the human sensory system and mind that just cannot fathom that through visualization. In this light, it came to me in a flash, that this representation and explanation also describes a visual representation of how true yin-yang works through the yin-yang symbol. 

Using the sphere shape seen in the tao of physics drawing, see below or attached “tao-physics-circle-on-sphere.gif”, you can readily see how yin-yang flows and ebbs not just in a linear circular fashion but actually in that four-dimensional way that makes life so interesting and byond our perception through our sensory systems. It speaks to how in meditation, Eastern belief and philosophy, the mind then can expand beyond the normal three dimensional view of our senses, i.e., sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. 

Looking at the drawing, “yin-yang-sphere.png”, you see a cross section of lines much like the lines the cover a globe used for navigation that shows how the sphere is also in the shape of a ball and then go back to the first drawing and imagine the lines interconnection and at each point of connection another line is drawn and connected to the other side of the sphere/ball to criss and cross over passing through the space of that inner ball/sphere - this is how the mutual dynamic connectedness of yin-yang works. (see also the sphere_wireframe.png drawing)

Now, once you get a picture in your mind of what is a wireframe cross grid line covering the surface of the ball/sphere then you imagine the cross lines form one side to the other connecting all the cross-points of that wireframe shown in the sphere_wireframe.png you thin add in more connected lines that traverse all those cross lines in the space of the ball itself. This gives you the four-dimensional space-time visualization that also speaks to the power, depth and breadth of the yin-yang concept represented and symbolized in such a way to allow us to imagine and visualize the complexities of both. 

Now, as you visualize that add in liquid, much like the void but in reality the void is not truly void of things, that fills that sphere/ball, now visualize a miniature set/dual like balls floating around inside, one is just like the outer sphere but white while the other is just like the outer sphere but black. As each travels and moves using a magnetic pull and push that keeps them equal distance no matter where they float and move in the main sphere also have an equal amount of the opposite balls color in fluid that as the two move the two colored liquids flow, ebb and move accordingly to the travel patters of the two balls causing, at one frozen point, the appearance of the yin-yang symbol we are all familiar with but visualize it as dynamic, moving and not governed by any set pattern, etc.
