An emerging theory is that natural systems are all built on tensegrity principles — that of structural integrity through a tension network. This has profound impact on how you think about your body and how it works. It is probably best to read these posts in *reverse* order, starting with “Tensegrity” and ending with “Tensegrity Structures are Made for Motion.”
