Re: Fascia and the story about Fuzz

I think these are two different things:

1: moving naturally, optimizing normal movement, moving like babies or animals, getting rid of obstacles in the body.

2: movement and power that emerges from internal training. This requires a different conditioning of body and mind than 1.

It seems many people equate 1 and 2. But in my understanding, 1 and 2 are not the same (I think Carsten is right).
I don't think there is anything wrong with 1. 1 is good. But it's not 2.
Animals and babies don't have 2. They can't condition their mind and bodies to get 2, because they don't have the mind to drive the conditioning and use it.
