“ How can we distinguish what is biologically determined from what people merely try to justify through biological myths? A good rule of thumb is ‘Biology enables, Culture forbids.’ Biology is willing to tolerate a very wide spectrum of possibilities. It’s culture that obliges people to realize some possibilities while forbidding others. Biology enables women to have children – some cultures oblige women to realize this possibility. Biology enables men to enjoy sex with one another – some cultures ...more ”
“ It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. But the sea, though changed in a sinister way, will continue to exist; the threat is rather to life itself. ”

This is also a place to discuss the controversial topics explored in The Underground Knowledge Series (non-fiction books) by James Morcan & Lance Morcan as well as the Underground Knowledge podcast show.

[close] This is a book club for anyone interested in: dance, movement, storytelling, and trauma healing. We'll be reading and discussing some of the books that inspire my blog, moveyourstory.org, which explores how stories and culture are passed down through dance, how people express themselves through movement, and how trauma healing can be facilitated through dance and movement. Books are focused on the history of dance, ways to improve your own movement, creative exercises, exercise science, psychology, and a few fictional reads that I feel are relevant.
