Perpetual Motion Machine
A human being is the kind of machine that wears out from lack of use. For the most part we gain energy by using energy. (George Leonard, Mastery)
Weave movement into the fabric of your daily life. (Frank Forenchich)
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“I am a Perpetual Motion Machine.”
“What do you mean?”
“This is a very powerful mental representation in terms of identity. Movement is one of my central values. The metaphor evokes George Leonard’s powerful idea that we gain energy by using energy.
In practical (and playful) terms, it’s the name of an important Quest for me.
Weaving movement into the fabric of my daily life, finding creative ways to integrate movement in my life.”
