Standing Waves

Previously we thought body movement was accomplished by a series of ratchets, levers, and pulleys.
Lately, this machine model has begun to break down.
Connective tissue is the ocean within us, and, in fact, contains the same basic proportions of elements, salts, and carbon compounds found in sea water.
It becomes more fluid the more it is moved; the more sedentary, the more ‘dried out’ it becomes.
We literally moisten ourselves and make more variations of movement and action possible.
The water within us seems to have a sort of mind….
The new model sees the body water itself shaping us.
That is, we do not contain it like a bottle; it holds itself together like standing waves
and shapes our more solid structures around it.
