Body as Sensor
“In the instinctive psyche, the body is considered a sensor, an informational network, a messenger with myriad communication systems–cardiovascular, respiratory, skeletal, autonomic, as well as emotive and intuitive. In the imaginal world, the body is a powerful vehicle, a spirit who lives within us, a prayer of life in its own right. In fairy tales, as personified by magical objects that have superhuman qualities and abilities, the body is considered to have two sets of eyes, one set for regular vision, another far-seeing; two kinds of strength, the strength of the muscles and the invisible strength of the soul.
The list of twos in the body goes on.
