Biotensegrity: The Structural Basis of Life

Graham Scarr

… In order to properly understand health, dysfunction and disease we must first examine how the body is organized—the architecture of the system and the way that it operates—and that means starting at the beginning.

Biotensegrity is increasingly recognized as a more thorough explanation of the mechanics of motion. It examines the basic physics of natural forms through their underlying geometry and shows how even the most complicated organism can be better understood through the simplest of models. Where complex living structures are the result of interactions between some basic principles of self-organization, and that these apply to everything from the smallest of molecules to the whole body. Tensegrity demonstrates the natural balance of forces, the dynamic tension network, and an integrated movement system that is applicable to all living things.
