also I want to clarify that I don't think making art is something only "creative people" can do. anyone can do it and anyone can have fun doing it. in fact, I think the myth that some people are just bad at art and shouldn't do it is what has led us to this point
"Why should I support the robot revolution? I don't hear you demand truth, justice, or freedom."
"No," the robot said, "our demands are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bound."
"Let me see that list. Hm. A hard-boiled egg?"
"It's for an early supporter."
literally one joint at a time. left foot toes wiggle and ankle is balanced, then ankle wiggles and knee is balanced, then hip wiggles and right leg hip is balanced, then right knee is balanced, then right ankle, then right toes, then left arm shoulder wiggles, … etc.
each limb forced from outside-in to control balance of spine, instead of crown of head which typically controls balance of spine.
you could lose all the limbs AND your head and your body would STILL maintain forward momentum.
your could run head on at someone while getting shot, anywhere but the active limb, and maintain intended momentum.
against your environment.
minimizing blood loss and maximizing available fuel for muscle activation contributing most to intended momentum.
the bottom palm of each limb tries to reach the spine top-or-bottom, while the root joint of that limb moves the least amount possible.
the process gets pulled back half way on each limb.
the effect looks like - IT IS - a soldiers march.
guarded forward advancement.
finger telescopes swing head around 180 each forward fully balanced footfall.
pointer-thumb pinched with other fingers extended: 👌🏽
near hand close to eyeball, far hand furthest possible extension of arm.
near side👌🏽 over eyeball opposite side of spine.
far side 👌🏽 other end of telescope 🔭 between hands 👌🏽👌🏽 ; head swivels 180 directly behind.
near side leg swings forward fully, even through head and eyes turned 180 backwards.
invert process for other side.
full sprint while able to look 180 backward at each step
ensuring body maintains forward momentum no matter what any one limb OR the head is doing during each balanced footfall.
it’s really hard.
twisting whole torso 180 back then 360 the other way then looping 360 turns EACH FOOTFALL.
while maintaining vision
make all the sounds hitting lips, then all the sounds hitting teeth.
ptk bdg. p hits lips, t hits teeth, k hits tonsil ; b hits lips, d hits teeth, g hits tonsil.
it’s the ka-badi ka-badi ka-badi chant!
ka, ba, di. low, mid, high. hit throat, hit tonsil, hit teeth.
hands on hips. specifically palm base at waist and fingers pointing to feet, thumb close as possible to belly button, pinky finger close as possible to butthole, remaining fingers spaced evenly.
now walk around.
feel what causes least pain and allows most progress.
balance on toes reflect up each joint to spine, then continues to reflect around each shoulder, on same side across sagital plane.
balance of fingertips reflects up arm joints to spine, then continues down to half of waist, butthole to belly button, across sagital plane.
so, if big toe is up, other toes forward, pinky toe down ; same activation on each joint closer to spine (knee, hip), then same activation around shoulders.
bicep “up”, most of arm “forward”, tricep “down”.
wiggle toes, feel it in shoulders.
wiggle fingers, feel it in hips.
