Body Schema

May prove to be one of the most signifant discoveries of the early Twentieth Century.

 

I don't know how to refer to body schema, whether it is a thing or a concept. It is a borderland, a zone that is a mix of somethig of you with somehting of the other. It is a wavering between concept and thing, willing and being.

 

The term body schema refers to the expression of a deep principle as it manifests in the body, in neurophysiolgy and movement physiology. It is looking at where and how in the body movement is initiated, postures held. It is also the main zone of attention for social neurobiology.

 

I use the term sometimes in a very broad sense as I have not yet found a word to describe the general principle.

 

Call it a neurological phenomenon observed and named by English neurologist Henry Head.

Flaneur -- Out for a Stroll

 

I am I and my circumstance; and, if I do not save it, I do not save myself.                       —JOSÉ ORTEGA Y GASSET

Changing the Conversation

Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be––this is the interrelated structure of reality.

        —MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

Now, more than ever . . . our place in the universe and the place of the universe in us, is proving to be one of active relationship. That is more than a scientist’s credo. The separateness of our lives is a sham. Physics, mathematics, music, painting, my politics, my love for you, my work, the star-dust of my body, the spirit that impels it, clocks diurnal, time perpetual, the roll, rough, tender, swamping, liberating, breathing, moving, thinking nature, human nature and the cosmos are patterned together.                JEANETTE WINTERSON,                     Gut Symmetries

The Story Teller

What you do, what you become, is not my concern.                                          ROBERT MCCALL
