Why Kiseki Go?

"Kiseki" means "Miracle" (literally "Strange" or "Unusual" "Trail" or "Trace").
Go is perhaps a miracle game in that its rules and elements are so simple yet the game is so devious and deep.
The parts of the word have associations with Go too.
With different characters "Ki" is used to mean "Go Game" and "Seki" is a term for a "Stalemate" in Go.
"Ki" can also mean "Tree" and "Seki" can mean "Rock";
these are two of the physical elements of Go in the board and the stones.
