How Does the Human Being Move?
The Problem of the Motor Nerves
How do our muscles become “conscious” of our desire to move?
As the basis of our observations, we should view what we call our nervous system as only a physical expression of what lives everywhere in our body as perceptual activity. Something guides us in a certain direction, but this means that there must also be an unknown connection between what guides us and our “muscle being,” as there is in all conscious actions. Just as our muscle being “listens” to the movements we wish to make, likewise it also listens to the guiding impulse of our destiny, or karma.
