Truth has always been built upon truths.
the scientific world and the metaphysical world
often appear exclusive toward each other.
the artistic and athletic endeavors embrace
the two worlds and define certain types of
extraordinary performance as gifted, infused.
Oneness unites the physical and the metaphysical.
Learning how to navigate our way through life is required
for a complete self-actualization.
An immediate gain of massive amounts of new understandings is to re-analyze current thought through the prism of a simple, universal, pre-existing conjectures/truths. These conjectures/truths originally connected both the physical and metaphysical worlds. The major premise is that gifted performance is a combination of both the physical and metaphysical worlds. That is why it is usually referred to as being in the "zone/oneness."
Beinggifted.com investigates historical physical/metaphysical concepts which still remain as a foundation to many parts of the world. There seems to be a cultural shift in thinking that occurred as technology replaced the need for certain aspects of individual performance; and the metaphysical need to "know" oneself. These nuances of life are dependent on the "interior" body muscles, energy, and functions and include creativity and gifted performance. (When combined physical power was required, the "heave-ho" chant triggered the use of "inbreath inner abdominal power," and a relaxation and release of toxins on the exhale.)
The knowledge of the breath rhythm cycles were vital to those that used them for daily and community survival. Plus the physical demands of highly polished "war techniques" were no longer needed with the advent of gun powder. Another reason for the "lost techniques" of human performance.
Art not only reflected the culture, but transmitted it's techniques of being. Religious art being an example. The connective power of life energy, creative historical evidence of "inner body" functioning is also there. Beginning with evidence in cave art.
To the critic the question is: "How?" was this done?" The answer: "Gifted." (However, that really doesn't answer the question of "How?")
These historically based concepts are literally applied (accepted as true) to create both "new" physical performance and "new" metaphysical understandings. We are placing ourselves in the thinking mode of the rationale of another time, or place, or culture. Like an archaeologist we are looking for truths of the past to apply today.
Historical truths applied to a 100% use of human potential include:
Using both "outer" and "inner" muscle groups.
Using both the "exhale" and "inhale" of the breath cycle.
Linking these historical concepts to current bio-dynamics creates gifted performance in today's world.
For those already considered gifted, the knowledge enables the discovery of new concepts to add to their repertoire of technique.
When we place into ourselves the historical understandings of time in the past we are putting into action:
“If you really want to understand me, walk a mile in my shoes”.
If you have never experienced “outside-of-the-box;”
Then this is it.

A contemporary comment: "It seems unbelievable. But at this exact moment in time we are facing another onslaught of "dark ages."
Barbaric practices, beheadings, extermination of cultures, slavery, and the like can be witnessed live on the media. As in the past, the arts and education are seen as threats.
Perhaps the arts and education fill some type of inner void that causes jealousy and anger in those that need it. Who knows?
Perhaps teaching, leading, and guiding our people in ways to fill their inner voids would be a means of preserving our culture. Creating a renaissance.
