Deities in material world

Whenever I see things like this, I wonder if Miko can touch Yashima.

In all likelyhood, she just can't help herself reaching out. But still, what if...

{Update 2006/11/25: Steven mentions the following moment in the comments:

The brush Yashima is weilding and the tags are certainly real here.

Truth to be told, I forgot about this moment. But I saw other such moments, such as when Yashima rides a pigeon. I somehow expected a certain intransitive relationship (e.g. god can touch you, but you can't touch god). There's also a common excuse of mind-to-mind contact, as when Yurie was sick and went visiting, then overdid it. Still, even then she never went through any walls. And postulating an intransitive touch has its own problems.

So, assigning "some" physical presence to Yashima seems like a winner. It makes him an exact equivalent to the out-of-body Yurie who flies through open windows. Although then I have to wonder just why he won't fly around when necessary. Maybe it's just because he's an ineffectual loser who can't fly. Curiously, the winning model does not do any favours to Yashima's chances with human chicks. I am not sure if I like that. In some sense, it's bad for him, because you know, scoring with Ben-ten is really not on the cards. On the other hand, maybe it's better this way, for a host of reasons we won't mention on a family-friendly blog.}
