|Rhizoming Hidden skin 1
The hidden skin is a remained sense from old age of life. Life has changed shape and way of life in the four billions years history from one celled creature to multi celled creature, but each specific qualia are reserved in the cell. Hidden skin has long history from one celled age and through each creature’s age, fetus age to presence. How can we remember the hidden qualia of them. I will tell you the origin of each layers of hidden skin, and how to wake up the slept senses.
The 1st layer: Placenta
A fetus of mammal is wrapped by a thin film which is called Placenta. The placenta protects the fetus against shocks from the outside world. The fetus recognized the world through the subtle vibration of placenta. At that time the five senses were not separated, also eight main channels were not separated. They were oneness including the sense of pain, pressure, temperature, smell, taste, movement, light, sound, and the world-self channel. Like as one celled creature, the fetus resonated with all qualia and recognized the world totally through the placenta.
After the birth, the sense of placenta remains through the whole life. A specific way of sensing is remained even the organ is vanished; like as the tale, lost limbs, and so on. The sensing qualia through placenta are remained. It is not noticed by consciousness, but the subconscious uses the non-dual and multiple qualia as the most sentient feeling about the world and self condition. The subbody’s main channel is this non-dual and multi- dimensional channel.
Try to practice with the subtle contact movement with a partner by the closest distance between touching and not touching. Everybody must enjoy a comfortable resonance and fall into the state of dreaming.
The 2nd layer: Amniotic fluid
Outside of plaxenta is the layer of amniotic fluid. We have spend for ten
months in the ocean of womb, and life had spend for four billions years
in the real ocean. That’s why
the qualia of being moved by the outer wave is so dear for us. Practice the pair
movement by a proper distance with a partner with sending imaginary wave each
other. You must like it.
The 3rd layer: Womb
Womb was the biggest shelter for fetus. We need a proper small space like as a bedroom, a bathroom, and so on for relaxing in safe feeling. If your house is invaded by unknown alien, you must feel deep fear, because the safety shelter layer is shaken and invaded.
The 4th layer: World
Mother’s body was the world for fetus. We have felt the world through the resonance with mother’s body, your deepest nature before you get your own ego and character which the origin is not unknown may come from the experience of resonance with your mother’s body in your fetus age.
The 5th layer: Out of the world
The 0th layer: The skin
The cell has many receptors
in the cell membrane, and resonates with every kind of matters through them. It
is the real physical communication layer
with the environment, comparing the plaxenta is imaginary communication organ through
qualia. Also the sense of touch controls the resonance pattern with environment.
By sharing the same shape of skin, you can resonante with the inner qualia
of body naturally.
The -1th layer: The body fluid
The body fluid is streaming under the skin layer. It is biggest medium for inner communication. Many kinds of transmitter substances are floating and controlling the resonance pattern among all cells. The signs of change of bodily condition comes out as emotions. The qualia of each emotion are the biggest messenger between life, body and consciousness. When we are able to see the condition of body fluid and control it by various techniques, we can transform numerous being.

The -2th layer: The muscle
The muscles are classified to surface muscle and deep layer muscle. Consciousness of daily body control surface muscles according to the habit and manner of modern human society. When we inhibit the big and rough habitual movement by surface muscles, the hidden movements come out from the darkness of body.
The -3th layer: The hidden muscle
The hidden muscles are not noticed by daily consciousness. But the deeper response with the qualia of hidden skin are responded by them. Listen to the subtle resonance among the hidden skin and hidden muscles. To open the hidden sense which is folded in the body is one of the main training of butoh.
The -4 layer: bones and joints
The hidden muscles are running spirally under the straight surface muscles, and connect each hidden joints beyond plural numbers of bones. Be awrare of them, too.
The -5th layer: The hidden cavities
There are so different hidden cavities in our body. Make it your daily habit to listen to the subtle signal from the inner organs and hidden cavities. Invent your original dance from the hidden cavities. It must become your flower of your butoh.
