on moving

The use of the hands is vital for the human being, for having flexibility, dexterity. In a way the entire human being is in the hands. Our destiny is in the hands.

I love the idea that through movement we come into direct contact with our most human values, with the essentials that must be felt to be known, to be remembered.  I've been thinking a lot recently about accessing memories through movement, and then about knowledge as memory, and so I'm seeing this video today through that lens.
