Gravity

There are forces that govern our life on planet earth, and structures within our bodies that meet and distribute those forces. The primary field is one we take for granted until we are very far off the ground: gravity. 

Our bodies are constructed to funnel this immutable force into the earth. Our bones hold us up within this field, and their alignment or misalignment affects the shape and quality of the soft tissues that attach to them. The contraction of our muscles pulls blood, so the circulation of our blood is also affected. 

Our funnel we make in response to gravity's load over the duration of our lifetime is what shapes our bones, and every cell within our body. We never escape its pull as long as we are alive; quite literally the shape you make in gravity is an autobiography of the life you have lived, and “a living story you are continuously writing” (Katy Bowman).

Far From Equilibrium dynamics is the underlying physics to the organization of our body's form in gravity. The body is bioelectric, and respond to mechanical input. At the cellular level, the process by which our physical self adapts to its own shape in the physical world and field of gravity is called mechanotransduction.
