I love over-determination , it reminds me of han confucianism. You can over-intellectualise things you know.

This is one of the greatest points ever made on this forum.


People will take a small concept and just place it under a microscope analyzing something until they are paralyzed.

People love a mystery I guess. The problem that I see is that folks are generally looking for hidden, complicated answers to things when they are often simple and in plain view. "Hidden in plain sight", as they say.

This seems to be ESPECIALLY true with the martial arts crowd!

Drawing a comparison is hardly over-intelectualising.

I don't think that Supremor was directing that at you specifically, Migo. He was probably referring to people that over-analyze things in general. Nothing wrong with drawing comparisons.

I like your BJJ/ice analogy. I am still a n00b at BJJ, but the comparison strikes me as sound.

Ah ok, I get confused sometimes with the replying to tag. Might be nice if there's an option to have a non-directed reply.

oh yes, that was not particularly directed at you migo, just stating my general opinion on the studying on minute ( and I feel insignificant) details.
