Squeezing bottles

An Aikido sensei proves a point: She tells me to close my eyes and puts two glass bottles in my hands. Then tells me to squeeze as hard as I can.

She lets go and asks: "Which bottle is the empty one?". My muscles and my being is so contracted and rigid that I cannot tell.

"Now relax"

As I relax the distinction between the two bottles become clear and easy.
