We've come to represent our culture's deepest distrust of the "shadow," the ways we normally are not, but could be. We police its expression with strategies to promote erectness and "proper" consciously controlled and disciplined movement.

From this
This post further expresses and, I think, explains the attitude of several highly respected teachers of pain neuroscience toward ideomotion.

Quote:
I am not I.
I am this one
walking beside me whom I do not see,
whom at times I manage to visit,
and whom at other times I forget;
who remains calm and silent while I talk,
and forgives, gently, when I hate,
who walks where I am not,
who will remain standing when I die.

BY JUAN RAMÓN JIMÉNEZ 1881–1958

Jimenez' is a "shadow" poem in the Jungian sense, and, I hear, that 80% of our shadow is "golden." Not sure how any of this has been measured.

Still, to me the most important aspect of the shadow is our denial, dismissal and disinterest in it. Surely ideomotion is a manifestation of the shadow, specifically in the form of nonconsciously generated movement.

Am I wrong?

I wrote Lacuna specifically because so many of the people I respect and reference remain either completely quiet regarding the basis of all active movement (that’s what the literature on unconscious motivation has revealed ideomotion to be) or deny its existence.

As a profession that prides itself upon its knowledge of movement, this seems mysterious.

Unless, of course, we consider the effect of the shadow and the behavior it encourages.
