Mello wrote:cdobe, are you talking about the difference between phenomena and the description of phenomena? If so, i agree. Vectors don't exist; they are descriptions of reality but not reality itself.
nianfong wrote:cdobe, really the crux of my argument is this:
do you dispute that displacement is a real, and measurable vector in the real world?

What this means is when we do our earth-shattering qi-powered fajin explosion, the instantaneous sinking of the body increases our friction with the earth, allowing us to push off of the earth with more force horizontally, so that our fists have more momentum and energy to draw from the earth.

Good idea about having an anatomy and a martial arts physics 101 stickies which should be a summation of the best of the threads, pruning away the many dead branches. I'm surprised that RSF does not have stickies that cover the usual territory that gets discussed repeatedly or of a particularly insightful discussion. If I'm mistaken and there are stickies somewhere on RSF, then please point me to them!
