Is it yours or mine?

Can you touch your fingertips to each other behind your back?  Can you close your eyes and find your feet?  Can you walk in a straight line?  You probably can.  The reason the that our bodies possess a sense sometimes called kinesthetic (from the Greek for “perception of motion”), and are served by proprioceptors.  (Proprio comes from Latin “for one’s own”).


The information that some of the proprioceptors send to the brain creates some of the most fundamental components of our sense of self.  It is the innate intelligence of your body that does the creating of your sense of self.  Without a sense of self, you could not survive in this world.
