Connective Tissue Benefits: Spontaneity, Vitality, Love & the Tao
I am delighted to share a recent article that I wrote called ‘Connective Tissue & the Nervous System: the Advantages of Body Consciousness’. It contains some interesting speculations regarding the potential benefits of deliberately shifting consciousness out of the Brain and into the Body.
It seems that the Brain's central nervous system is simply too slow to deliberately direct certain common activities, for instance the nearly instantaneous responses to a dynamic environment required of musicians, athletes, martial artists or even someone driving a car. Is it possible that we have some kind of Body Consciousness that enables us respond more quickly to environmental stimuli? If so, is there a biological system that can fulfill this role?
Recent discoveries indicate that our connective tissue system could provide this function. This bodily system permeates every cell in our body, in a much more comprehensive fashion than our central nervous system.
Further, it is an order of magnitude quicker in terms of transmitting both information and energy, than the sluggish central nervous system.
Is it possible that the Connective Tissue System supplies the biological network for Body Consciousness? For more details about this amazing biological system, read the article on our Connective Tissue System.
