There’s a succinct explanation of how the delay between our decision making, our awareness of it and our actions takes place on this podcast. I think that the implications for those of us involved in human motion are huge but I’ve yet to sell that very well.

The comments a pretty good, especially the one referring to that song that begins “Row, row…” It reminds of something I wrote a while ago about my fascination with surrealism and the connection between ideomotion and dreaming.

It has been well established that our sense of movement is delayed, inaccurate and often imaginary. This makes the movement's meaning difficult to interpret, control and reproduce though most of therapy revolves around such things.

Perhaps one day therapists will be taught something about movement’s origin and possible motivation. I approach this from several angles including poker playing, poetry, juggling and music. These are all human endeavors that could inform us if we simply attended to them.

One day.

I always loved this cartoon. It can go both ways, the 'miracle' is the origin...

I like this because I studied physics in college way back when, and in solving those really tough problems it often seemed the answer just popped out of nowhere. I didn't do anything there other than spend time looking for an answer, but when it came it came of it's own accord.

I don't juggle but I do swing indian clubs which might have something in common, same thing happens there. Well it happens all of the time doesn't it?

Juggling is simply the manipulation of an inanimate object or objects. Indian clubs count.

I see this as another indication that we need to divest ourselves of the notion that we have a "mind" that is somehow separate from the brain. Personally, I don't seek to treat the patient's mind - I work to change their brain.

The cartoon reminds me of Melzack's Matrix. The "miracle" happens at the center.

It's interesting that the matrix has lots of words and info on the input and output side, but the "miracle in the middle" is just three letters with some interconnecting circles with arrows.

That's because it's a verb, not a noun.
