Emilie has successfully labored to convey to in written words descriptions for something that has no language.
Let's talk semantics. To convey ideas via words, one is limited to the relation between signifiers: words, phrases, signs, and symbols, and what they stand for, their denotation.
But she is trying to talk to us from a world of movement, kinesics (body movement), haptics (touch) and energy.
One idea of her's that I love is that discovery, the learning of something new, requires that one must first "not know", or be ready to give up what they think they know. She describes some amazing discoveries in a very humble way, conveying mostly a sense of gratitude that she was ignorant enough to not realize for example that working with a polio patient to restore movement was futile. She says, "If one were in the movement business, what better way to understand movement but from stratch." Her work to restore movement, documented on film and by Drs., has been explained by the fact that while muscles cells can't regrow, there are undifferentiated cells that can be imprinted as muscle cells.
Her description of what fluid resonance is has changed the way I think and move and breathe.
She fluidly expresses the ideas of science, poetry, philosophy and anthropology.
She speaks beautifully invitingly across to us from a place of experiential understanding while writing in a deliberate heartfelt way that helps the reader bypass conditioned conceptual modes of taking in new ideas.
Bravo to her!
