Containing Multitudes

Our nervous system is a miraculous structure, controlling every muscle, cell, organ, and tissue in our entire body.

The Body’s Magnificent Structure

Tensegrity: “Complex structures are in a constant state of tension and compression; the continual interaction of pushing and pulling forces perfectly balanced with one another lead to immense self-sustained stability and structural integrity.” Architect Buckminster Fuller first introduced this concept in 1961 for the buildings he designed. Years later, scientists began to see the parallels…
