<<< "Muscle Memory" is another phenomenon that fascinates me. The kinescetic senses an athlete might employ is the clearest example of "muscle memory". Another might be simply driving a car, or walking, even. Very dramatic is what goes on in an earthquake. The muscles cry "foul" to the churning and undulating of the earth. Martial arts relys heavily on the unseen world of balance and placement of the hands and feet. Think of how difficult gymnastics would be if the muscles in our body couldn't image where they are, how fast they are moving, and where they will end up. The imaging I'm talking about happen in the propriaceptor and vestibular cortices of the brain. But a great deal of the process relys on the movement and placement of body parts by our muscles, creating "muscle memories".

<<< Glad you reminded me of their importance... "muscle memory" can be more subtle also. Life threatening events have been able to be re-enacted by reactions in the muscles. This is the cozmic-strange surreal part of "muscle memory".
