For every position the human body can get into there is a unique 'thread' that arcs from the tips of each extremity (toes/feet, fingers/hands and head) to a central connection board of the rectus abdominis muscles. Every thread has a 'connection' to a specific point on these muscles. The rectus abdominis like a central control board for movement.

straighten out all the threads throughout the body from end to end muscle bundles. fibres (illustration???) . A central control board for movement. The main foundation for the body's relative position. The relevant section of the rectus abdominis needs to be engaged for the associated compensatory muscles to relax.

It should be possible to extend each thread to its full potential and each thread should be free to move.   This is when we have a full range of movement.

When there is a tension along the arc, a physical restriction or painful area...

Based on my experiences I believe specific symptoms are likely due to the resulting adaptations of the body as it tries to compensate for weakness in differing areas of the rectus abdominis muscles.  My dysfunction was total (or very near) and life-long, which is why I think I have made these realisations during my recovery.  For other sufferers the effects may be more localised and associated with an acquired dysfunction in specific areas of the muscles after any one (or many) of a wide range of possible traumas.

Koch curve a.k.a. Koch snowflake

A mathematical model that has always appealed to me. The Koch curve is an an infinitely long line around a finite area i.e. line can go on forever but the possible area inside is always limited

First described by Helge von Koch in 1904. In a paper entitled: "Sur une courbe continue sans tangente, obtenue par une construction géométrique élémentaire" which translates to: "On a continuous curve without tangents, constructible from elementary geometry"

Note: In mathematics, a curve describes ANY line - straight, bendy, open ended, joined up.

The Koch curve is an an infinitely long line around a finite area..

How to make a Koch snowflake:

Start with a triangle.

Along each edge, add a smaller triangle to the edge. (making a 6 pointed star).

On the edge of each smaller triangle, add a smaller triangle ...

the first 7 iterations of a Koch curve/snowflake. starting with a triangle to a six-pointed star and on... created by: António Miguel de Campos (credit not requested but is deserved!)

First seven iterations (repeated steps) in created in the Koch curve.

This adding of triangles can keep on going on, so you are always adding to the length of the border of the whole shape - infinitely.

You are adding to the length of the border of the shape by x much, and the area is increasing by y much.

Blyth's Body Bubble

bit cheeky namesaking it but the illiteration it too irresistable.

Blyth's Body Bubble a finite area with infinite positions contained within it.

The extent of the body is limited by our physical form.   Our arms and legs and can only reach so far, limited by how far our tissues and joints can extend.

How many threads? How many positions? Aproaching an infinite amount of positions in a limited space.

A challenge for someone: to calculate the number unique positions the body can get into. To one degree difference, to one-tenth of a degree difference...
