The Blind Men and the Elephant

Six blind men were taken to the zoo to see an elephant. Although they couldn’t see the elephant, they were introduced to it, and each one touched it at a different place. One thought it was a wall; another thought it was a tree; one thought it was a worm; the next thought it was a snake; one thought it was a fan, and the last one thought it was a spear. They all said to themselves, “Well obviously, this is what this elephant looks like.” And they were all partly right, but every one of them was wrong. Aikido is like that.
