THE SECRET TREASURE OF FUXI – THE PRACTICE OF HARMONY

The groundbreaking discoveries and decoding of ancient secrets of tremendous importance to our future, health and well-being.

Researcher Monya Gorelik for the first time reveals ancient knowledge of the Chinese Emperor Fuxi, the founder of the Chinese civilization dated 8,000 of years ago.

MY ENLIGHTENMENT
DEEP IN FORESTS






Few days ago I had my regular morning walk and talking to my beloved dog Leo.

Deep in the forests near Rosh HaAyin, some 100 m from my garden, I had a sudden enlightenment. I realized 4 noble truths about motion.

Here they are:

WEIGTH LIFTING
and
AMEBA MOVEMENT




Weight lifting fully implements Ameba Movement, especially in techniques of Clear and Jerk or Snatch:
The technique here is the natural extension of the Movement Nature.
We can clearly see all phases of characteristic sequence of flexions and extensions of Ameba along the torso and neck. It can be best watched from the side.
Rotations of the pelvis, chest and head can be conveniently described by Fish Play and Fuxi Bagua. I believe Fish Play and Fuxi Bagua provide the best and easiest way for teaching these   
Extreme loads and speed as well as measurable result and strong competition make all movements in weight lifting as much effective as possible and exclude any cultural disturbance of movement.
During performance of Ameba the torso and limbs mutually reinforce each other or initiate relaxation when necessary.
Even the tongue performs Ameba movement. The movements of tongue changes the tonus of muscles of the torso and limbs during specific phases of Ameba:
Even the eyes and ears physically participate in the movement.
This a very convincing example of the principle "Movement Nature first and Movement Culture follows".

MOVEMENT NATURE
and
MOVEMENT CULTURE




A few days ago I posted a link in the Ancestral Movement Facebook group to a very well-written, deep and interesting article by Jon Yuen:


This article inspired an important discussion in the group and was a catalyst for some great ideas. It raised some interesting points to consider.

There is one aspect, which Jon mentioned, that I would like to discuss separately – the generalism of movement.

THE NEED IN CHANGE OF ACTIVITY
AND
TRANSFER OF TRAINING RING




HOW THIS ARTICLE APPEARED

The idea to write this article flashed in my brain early in the morning, at Apr 17, 2017, 06:25 AM.
Later I called to Prof. Vadim Rotenberg and discussed it with him.
Vadim fully supported my idea about need in change of activity as a result of Search Activity Concept (developed by him together with Prof. Arshavsky).

ABSTRACT

Mastering of specific motor skill or art leads to increasing the urge of introducing of new complementing additional activities (ADACTs) in training schedule as it's predicted by Search Activity Concept (SAC, developed by Prof. Rotenberg and Prof. Arshavsky).
Then the Transfer of Training effect on the main motor skill happens. This influence can be positive, negative or neutral. Of course the strong positive influence is a most desirable one. The problem is that normally while choosing the new activity we don't take in account the Transfer of Training.  Actually there are great number of Transfers of Training that occur in all directions between main skill and ADACTs and ADACTs themselves.
The same problem occurs when we perform special exercises in order to improve our daily regular natural activities like walking, sitting, standing stance and general motion. This problem has the utmost importance for the most of us.
The article will offer some ideas how to increase the positive effect of such new activities.

THE SECRET TREASURE OF FUXI – THE PRACTICE OF HARMONY
by
Gorelik Monya, M.Sc. Applied Mathematics


ABSTRACT

Our investigation shows that the general form of the natural motion of living beings and specifically that of humans is similar to Taiji symbol.

The natural motion trajectories of the different body parts produce a repeating fractal general Taiji pattern.

The eight trigrams and hexagrams of Fuxi describe synchronization between different parts of the body moving naturally along these Taiji-formed trajectories. The names of trigrams reflect the character of the natural motion and the sounds it can produce.

The natural motion makes maximal usage of relaxation and of inertial and reaction forces. These principles correspond to Pu and Wu Wei principles in Daoism. The body proportions which provide this kind of motion correspond to Golden Ratio, the etalon of beautiful proportions.

The fractal structure of the natural motion corresponds to Hundun in Daoism and Oneness.

Our research also provides a new possible way of developing Wen Wang and Mawangdui Bagua.


Together Daoist principles, Taiji symbol and Fuxi Bagua provide a detailed description of the natural motion and practical guidelines to its practice.


The research lead to the creation of natural exercises for the cultivation of harmony and health and for the implementation of them in Natural Martial Arts and other natural skills.

NATURAL MOTION
OR
MOTOR SKILL,
WHAT IS A DIFFERENCE?




In previous chapters I already defined what is Natural Motion. It is a motion that is close to inborn motion as much as possible when applied under existing conditions in order to solve motor problems. I also discussed numerous advantages of implementation of Natural Motion in every human activity as well as complete lack of disadvantages.
The Pure Natural Motion is completely based on inborn motor reflexes. It has the most perfect bio-mechanics as was explained earlier – the bio-mechanics of the waves starting from the body and running toward the palms like the wave that running along the rope of the whip. No intelligence-constructed movements, no sophisticated tools can be found in the Pure Natural Motion. It rather looks as absolutely ordinary motion, really nothing special, just very graceful, light and variable.
