Integration or Fragmentation

“Lizard brain” pragmatism which dictates the knee-jerk reaction of fight or flight cannot take into consideration the whole cycle of a process, which is the domain of the higher centres of the brain. It’s the difference between an attitude of ‘divide and conquer’ vs ‘together we stand, divided we fall’. Only thoughtful consideration of the cause and effect reveals how fragmentation can produce dissolution and how integration of all the different parts can produce a resolution in line with far-reaching goals and aspirations.

That’s why fighting disease makes the body weak, while building health makes the body strong. Why splitting organism from environment with DNA derangement degrades the ecosystem, while respecting interdependence furthers sustainability. And why conducting business by cooperating internally within an organization takes a quantum leap over competition with external forces which cannot be controlled. I’m sure you can think of many more examples.

A recent one that comes to mind is the move at Examiner.com to fragment the body of an article itself by inserting unrelated advertising content against the best judge of reason and best interest of the author. Not withstanding the necessary cohesiveness of a creative piece of journalistic writing, the lack of intellectual continuity of thought with the audience makes it a self-defeating proposition. Despite plenty of non-infringing advertising real estate available on their web pages, without a unifying raison d’etre, the underlying connection between reader and writer has sadly been undermined as a result of  boundaries breached. And the layout is pretty deceitful too because sometimes the unrelated advertising shows up in the middle of the article and sometimes elsewhere. Google ads do it to, but only as text, not images (some bordering on the pornographic) which is even more invasive, and offensive.

And of course in my own field I’m constantly reminded of the fine line between the fragmenting aspects of exercise that impacts integration of the pre-established perfection of the human organism. Step too far on one side or the other and you’ll exacerbate sympathetic or parasympathetic overtraining, produce cortisol stress that promotes inflammation, and lactic acid buildup that compromises immune system resilience. A deliberate focus on developing techniques for balancing the complete adaptation/ recovery cycle results in pH fitness which accelerates metabolism, and neural/ endocrine balance which prevents deformation of cells and malfunction of organs.

Is the choice simply a matter of decision? That hasn’t been my experience; engagement of the conscious directive functions that can integrate processes require an input of energy, while the fragmentation of a cog mentality inevitably defaults to a myopic view.

Limbic-System-Exercise, Mood Change

What’s the best way to support the executive directive function of the frontal lobe, pineal gland and limbic system directly is to restore the physiological balance to Ignite Passion, providing a more reliable advancement on the usual psychological self-talk required to convince ourselves to exercise?

When we understand the impact of intense emotional experiences accumulated in the process of growing up, we know that memory creates networks of physical tensions that splits brain and body at an early age. This is one of the reasons that simply playing IQ improvement games fail to fully integrate mind and body. By liberating deeply held physical tensions, we also liberate psychic tensions, because every group of muscle cells is also connected via the neural and endocrine systems to the brain. This signifies anything blocking the extreme of a nerve ending has actually imprisoned it’s corresponding cerebral cell which no longer receives any messages. It is enclosed in a kind of biological anesthesia. We do not want to use these muscles in certain ways because they cause us pain. Therefore we restrict these movements and start patterning more comfortable movements, and as we do this, awareness, cleverness, and the most valuable cerebral functions are lost.

Therefore working just with the mind cannot achieve emotional calm centered-ness deliberately, or can it Ignite Passion spontaneously. Stored tensions remain until released by deep body work combined with physical exercise that aims to integrate gut and brain. This integration can occur very fast if we design a warm-up cool down that follows precise natural laws for awakening the endocrine, neural, and circulatory systems in a specific sequence under conditions of chemical balance, i.e. acid base equilibrium. To achieve the pH fitness integration necessitates, such a series of exercises must be in accord with the sequence of interrelations of our organic functions.
