Words for thought:
Proprioception: The sense of the relative position of neighboring parts of the body with space/distance by which we perceive the outside world through our mind.
Kinesthetics: Interior world unlike the six exteroceptive senses as it includes muscle awareness, movement sight, taste, smell, touch, hearing, and balance.
Ergonomics: Body structure union with living environment
Embodiment: Viewing the body as a doorway to discovery through embracing the singular body-mind experience. This cognitive science is expressed as mindful states of the natural collective whole and feeling complete.
