Interesting statement about being asymetrical.
"We are , neurologically asymetrical, which causes us to be. of course, unilaterally biased.
This, in turn makes us morphologically asymetrical which produces some natural imbalances."
I'm studying for a test about teaching children. Before they become "lateral" thinkers and movers, they are "bilateral", moving both sides...hmmmm...could it be that they don't have depth perception yet? Could it be they don't have balance/ coordination yet? Not in my notes.
I agree that we adults have a stronger side, a better turn, etc....so is this asymetry a "learned" response to being bipedal? If we are bipedal wouldn't it make sense to be symetrical in strength so as not to throw us "off" in our stride?
Do we become asymetrical because we have independent movement, and with depth perception(bilateral), we are able to reach unilaterally? We learn to be "right-handed", and therefore favor one side over the other? Are ambitexterous people less likely to be asymtrical?
If this starts a different thread, I'll keep up.
