Turning Gravity Upside Down
According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty), “A man is an upside-down tree.”
The arcus senilis corneae (sometimes called a “sodium ring”) invariably forms at the top of the cornea.
It looks suspiciously like gravity’s effect on clarified butter.
The foam floats to the top, the clarified butter stays in the middle, and the heavier precipitate settles to the bottom.
Butter is heated till it melts, then cooled till it hardens into three layers …
1) The top layer contains whey, and is scraped off.
2) The middle layer is clarified butter, and is saved to eat.
3) The bottom layer contains casein, and can be mixed with the whey to form a skin cream.
Maybe a little Bat Time is in order?
Bats are the longest living mammal compared to their size. Their longevity quotient is twice as long as a human being.
Sirsasana (headstand) is the “king” of all the postures, according to Yogis.
Ray Long, M.D. (Anatomy for Arm Balances and Inversions, 2010) wrote …
“The shoulder girdle and arms establish the foundation of Sirsasana. Use co-activation of muscles and ligamentotaxis [continuous longitudinal force] to secure this structure. Externally rotate the upper arm bones by contracting the infraspinatus and teres minor muscles of the rotator cuff. Then engage the triceps to press the edges of the forearms evenly into the mat. Finally activate the pronators teres and quadratus to internally rotate the forearms and press the mounds of the palms (at the base of the index fingers) into the head.”
I’ve devoted thousands of hours to an upside-down lifestyle — headstands, handstands, inversion beds, and inversion boots.
I gave up sleeping while hanging from inversion boots after Adano issued me a warning.
He said they constricted important eye reflexes in the lower legs.
