For centuries it has been assumed that the organization of the human body was due to the downward force of gravity. The general theory for the effects of gravity on living organisms has been established based on the notion that there is a pull or force that attaches life to the earth within its atmosphere. Mankind has been studying locomotion in and around this principle force. Their objective has been to create and perfect man’s movement efficiency through a load and lift in a linear manner based on an outside force to improve function. However, this paper argues that it is through this constant study that man has overlooked key relationships of the human body and how it responds within these forces of nature rather than how it moves within its natural surroundings. The significance of these findings requires that man must rethink the origins of movement within the human body. The assumption that all of man’s inner abilities of movement are derived from muscle tissue is one of the largest fallacies in modern biophysics and gravitational sciences. In actuality, the organization of man’s cognitive and developmental movement patterns function within his ability to oppose gravity.
