22. Transitions

  • From sitting on a chair to standing - synchronizing distribution of labor with the anti-gravity game of pressure
  • From lying to sideways sitting - free ride on the spiral
  • From crossed legs sitting to standing - heel steering rising
  • From standing to sitting on the floor - proportional sinking to neutralize fear of falling
  • From lying to frontal sitting - strengthening the back without penalty to neck-jaw-stomach
  • From lying to standing - competence inspires confidence
  • Commitment to consistent rhythm - guarantees harmonious coordination

23. Creeping - the prototype of organic locomotion

  • Foot pushes a wall - metatarsal serpenting the spine
  • Sweeping head - generating movement from the backbone
  • Head under the elbow - thrusting hand to solid ground as a mobilizing force
  • Straightening the bent knee - the lever of moving one step forward

Interaction of knee - spine in Creeping is releasing the cultural rigidity of the upper back

24. Primal swimming - the original leg/lumbar relationship

  • Loop of leg in swimming - rotation of leg organizes pelvis-spine-head
