 “… so, and they were knitting something and the wool actually was already undone and made into a ball like they do for knitting, and the ball is rolling on the floor. He was reading, Brehm, himself was reading a paper, and his wife was knitting and they had a big Great Dane. Suddenly, reading the paper like that, he saw the Dane lying in front of him, and looking at him so intently, with such a brilliant kind of expression, that he (Brehm) became aware of it in spite of reading the paper. He took a look at the dog—he couldn’t understand—and then he heard his wife say, “Look, the wool disappeared. Where is the wool?” And he didn’t know what to say. He looked at the dog, and then, when she turned away looking for the wool, the dog who lay there, opened (his mouth) and showed him that he had the wool in his mouth, closed it again. “

Moshe continues with his story of reading Brehm’s Introduction to The Life of Animals over and over during his childhood.  The pictures and stories of animals … 

In this talk Moshe speaks of Functional Integration® as melody common to both teacher and student.  Included is his story of an FI demo ending in waltzing.

“But there is no limit to improvement”: Week 1, 8 June 1981, Page 12 of 37

“somebody who is only experienced eight years or something—therefore, by a long stretch, unable to do what I am doing, but yet she was able to make me further my own improvement in a way, which by myself, may have taken much longer. I would need hours or days of work on myself to achieve the same thing” Week 1, 8 June 1981, Page 12 of 37

A note from Jeff: “The neurophysiological principles I was talking about are discussed quite thoroughly in the workshop that I did with Roger Russell called Feldenkrais and the Brain. https://www.insidemoves.org/Store/11202/3/20/. Roger condenses his 40 years of academic studies and I give ATM and FI practices to elucidate attentional loops, the prefrontal cortex, excitation and inhibition, etc.”

From Video ~ David Letterman with Dr. Gideon Ariel Apr 20, 2008

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQDWihPi66s

LETTERMAN

Now we are going to meet Dr Gideon Ariel who is a sports scientist. He has developed a computerized method to help athletes increase their skills. Here is is now: Dr. Gideon Ariel.

You developed a scientific method that can help athletes improve their basic movements. Is that correct? How does that work?

DR. ARIEL

Well, that moves … whether it is an athlete or any object behaves on the same principles – gravity is gravity. So what we are doing is developing aerospace technology, which is developing in this country in order to help athletes to improve their performance, Olympic athletes and the general public.

LETTERMAN

Who are some of the athletes that we might recognize that you have worked with. 

DR. ARIEL

We worked with Mac Wilkins who won the Olympic Games in 1976.

LETTERMAN

What was his event?

DR. ARIEL

Discus throwing.

Also we worked with …? who by the way is 43 years old and he is second in the world now, after he quit for twelve years.

LETTERMAN

This is also discus?

DR. ARIEL

Yes, he is also discus.

Also we are working with the women’s volleyball team to improve their take-off and reactions to the ball and they are also the best in the world now.

LETTERMAN

Do you do any work with more popular sports, as far as the American public is concerned, like football or tennis?

DR. ARIEL

Yes. In our ?Codispoti? Centre in California we have a whole centre to analyze tennis with Vic Brighton tennis college, and we try to find out what actually makes a tennis game, how a tennis game compares with a racquetball game and so forth.

LETTERMAN

And that is all broken down into computers and then.. I guess we are going to see an example.

DR. ARIEL

Well, the computer is only a machine – garbage in/garbage out – however utilizing the computer you can calculate the velocity of the wrist to the velocity of the arm. Even we found interesting things between you and Hillary and …

LETTERMAN

I would hope so.  Are we in danger of over-analyzing just recreational sport do you think?

DR. ARIEL

I don’t think so. What we are getting rid of is witchcraft, because today if you look at an athlete and guess what he is doing right and what he is doing well you are basically just guessing. I mean how do you know. When an engineer builds a bridge he cannot just sit by the river and say okay build it this way or this way. You will have lots of cars in the Hudson River.

LETTERMAN

Okay, we are going to take a look at a videotape or film that you made of Hillary and myself.

DR. GIDEON ARIEL

Here you are playing and we are using up to 200 frames per second and then we will trace this movement into the computer. In fact here you see us on the digitizer.

By tracing that on a very sophisticated computer made by Data General, which can calculate the position in three dimensions, even though you remember we did not take your picture from the top, we can see you at the top view and the side view and also the front.

LETTERMAN

How is that possible?

DR. ARIEL

Well, this technology is actually adapted from aerospace technology. We see something in three planes here moving, so we can calculate the coordinates and transform them into three-dimensional.

So for example, the difference we found between you and Hillary was even though you are faster as far as the [??lift life??], she was faster as far as the motor programming. She was prepared for you a little bit sooner.  That is why we think the battle of the sexes can be won by women.

LETTERMAN

Let us go back to that again. Generally male reflexes are quicker?

DR. ARIEL

The male reflexes are quicker, however the better player is the one that can anticipate the shot a little bit sooner.  Where you will have to wait to the situation and then start moving, even though your reflexes are faster Hillary, since she is very experienced in this particular game, saw the movement much ahead of the game.

LETTERMAN

That is interesting. So what you are saying there then is that the smarter athlete, or the one who knows more how to play the intricacies of the game, will defeat a better natural athlete.

DR. ARIEL

Correct. Because the time that it takes to make the cue of the decision where to go takes more time than the reflex itself, which is in the milliseconds, or the thousandths of a second.

So here we try to simulate to make you more efficient on…

LETTERMAN

That is interesting. What do we call that?

DR. ARIEL

We are looking there at a special three-dimensional program where we can change the coordinate calculating velocity acceleration. It is only recently by computer technology that it is possible.

LETTERMAN

Now if I were a serious athlete or if Hillary wanted to take advantage of this information what would you do? You would show her the information and then what would you do?

DR. ARIEL

Let’s say that we have the battle of the sexes and you challenge them. We will shoot your picture taken at high speed and we will try to learn your game even without your knowledge in the tournaments, for example. Then we will program a machine to throw the ball, so every ball that comes out of the machine is identical to the ball that you use in your game, and let her practise against the vice versa. Then she will anticipate at the real time what has happened.

LETTERMAN

How long would that process take?

DR. ARIEL

It takes two or three days, but for her to learn it would take some time to practise. With Olympic athletes sometimes we work two or three months, or sometimes I whole year.

LETTERMAN

Oh, the Olympics. Let me ask you quickly. We are making advances here in electronics to improve sports. Other countries are improving sports with chemicals, right?

DR. ARIEL

Yes. In fact we think this is greatest thing we have here, because according to our experience developing new exercise equipment also controlled by a computer we are finding out that the program of the exercise will achieve more results than taking hormones or [?iatrogenic?] aids.

LETTERMAN

If certain countries competing in the Olympics now are using drugs, what would those be?

DR. ARIEL

It is a pharmaceutical Olympics. They say that if you do not take the anabolic steroids you cannot make the finals.

Athletes approach me all the time. I am on the sports medicine committee. So we will see who is better – his drugs or my ‘drugs’.

LETTERMAN

Fascinating.

REFECTIONS

Reflections / Quoting Moshe

“some Japanese have the sense of putting a little pillow under their bottom when they do Zazen. And some Yoga gurus, really, the real clever ones, the real ones, they do the same thing.”

 Ida Rolf has many, many students and they have Rolfed many thousands of people. She told me forty years ago that she can’t understand how many people think that that is good and she always insisted that sitting in the yoga position, for European people at least, is harmful. If they started as children, like the Indians do, and grew up with joint like that, then of course, it would be a different thing, but being a grown up person and forcing to do that is actually destroying the joints, destroying their strength and their flexibility. It makes them flexible where they shouldn’t be flexible and strong where they shouldn’t be strong, and therefore many of those have pain in the small of the back, and don’t know why, or in the neck. Well, that’s it, can’t be helped.

Anything that is compulsive, anything that the person does on other people’s instruction—takes it for granted that he should mold himself on other peoples’ internal life … that means command of your own personal body—it’s you. If you take other peoples’ instruction for that, we deserve … if we get that, we deserve all the troubles that we have.”
