Elaboration Through Physical Memory

The takeaway sentence in this article is that the goose “stood up for herself.” This means that she reflected the shepherd’s emotional charge back at him, and this resistance is what triggered the dog’s physical memories of flow, i.e. its puppy mind. Then through a process of elaboration wherein both individuals generate traits on demand (active/reactive/direct/indirect) and which transpires through the core code universal to all emotional beings, so that they in sync project emotion, absorb emotion, and then project it back in a more refined state, heart EVOLVED into existence.

The disposition of physical memory, in how it places the individual within the group, determines the role that the hormonal/neurochemical mix plays in the individual’s body/mind. Hormones and neurochemicals don’t cause behavior, behavior is an expression of the group dynamic that is supported and executed by the neurochemistry.

    Hi, Kevin- hope all is well…this article interests me particularly since I’ve been training under a Neuro-Audiologist in a system known as MNRI (Masgutova Neuro-sensorimotor-reflex integration). It is a relatively new approach in this country to address developmental/learning/social issues in children as well as PTSD in adults. I have been amazed and encouraged to see lasting gains in childrens’ abilities as they receive this stimulation. It’s a “hands-on”, light touch/pressure work that utilizes dynamic and postural theory to reset neurological pathways.
    I am wondering if it could be said that “the disposition of physical memory” is rooted in those primary reflexes which are activated by the CNS to facilitate the actual birth and to provide survival protection during the life of the individual. Under stress or trauma, such as a car accident, physical abuse, environmental stress, etc, individuals will display loss of higher functioning (learned behaviors) and revert to prior immature phases of development. The theory behind MNRI is that neurological pathways can be gently repatterned in a safe environment. Massage is great, chiropractors, osteopaths, etc, can relieve pain for prolonged periods of time, but if the brain is stuck in survival mode, the stress will never go away until the protective reflexes are reintegrated and the individual experiences the effect of flow in the mind.

    That sounds very concordant with the phenomenon of physical memory. The whole concept of something getting stuck depends on there being clear circuits of movement so that contracting, becoming tense, is the equal opposite form of protecting the organism when the movement runs into pain. Fascinating work and hope you find more correlates, thanks,
