I can easily picture myself shufflin ' over the floor, exactly performing
the dance I want, mentally, without moving a finger !
That within than, my body some aspects will be trigged is true, but than
again no movements of the body are observed by an other and in my
mind the mentally set up of moving is part of my mindset.
There is a great deal of information, required information, coming from

In my mind I perform perfectly and I can picture myself perfectly the
actions my body will make or take performing it_ all information is
avaible, in the back of my head muscles are alarmed, neurons are
fired in order to give me, mentally, a picture of what I am doing,
mentally. The movent of my body is actually represented mentally
in my mind.
I hope I don 't break a leg though !
Would I wake up out of my dream sitting in a wheelchair !?
