"In the Technique book it very clearly says in three places in as many pages that from a stationary position the weight must be brought forward over the balls of the feet. Absolutely nothing is mentioned about getting the body ahead of the feet."
Nothing is mentioned about not doing it either. Yet if you analyze how humans walk it is OBVIOUS THAT IT HAPPENS.
But before we get too distracted, the important thing is that the body weight project beyond the standing foot, INTO IMBALANCE. Usually the moving foot would take a while before it got ahead of the body, but as it's not supporting the body anyway, its position is less critical (unless of course it collides with the partner, as it rather easily can).
"If you walk the way you discribe down the aisle in your local super market you would soon be followed by the Security."
Who would be walking EXACTLY THE SAME WAY THEMSELVES. That is just the way HUMANS MOVE.
You really are going to have to read some of the literature on the subject of human locomotion... or continue in your idiotic denial.
