Poses and forms of bodies.
The first page gives information about psychological properties which are connected with constant forms of body builds, also about changes of emotional conditions which are displayed in poses.
Also the first page shows four base or basic poses which are systematized by means of digrams of the canon of changes i-jing.

Constant forms of body and changes of positions.
Four basic poses and digrams of canon i-jing.

Human body has forms or otherwise to tell formal physical parameters which correspond to universal laws and principles of existence of alive essences in space of universe, namely coordination with vital or essential functions and psychological features of people.
It is possible to tell that forms of body are symbols in which vital essential functions and physical parameters are displayed, also psychological features of people are expressed.
Forms of body are general for all people, but each person possesses individual physical shapes and sizes, that corresponds to different types of builds or figures of constitutions.
Types of body builds are constant forms which do not change. But positions of constant forms of human body can change as a result of movements. Namely abdomen can be weakened or strained, or head can deviate usual position, and as a result there are poses which are dynamic changes of constant physical shapes and expression of changeable values of psychological properties of human personality.
For constant forms of body can be applied scientific term of anthropognomy.
For dynamic poses of body can be applied scientific term of anthroponomy.
Anthropognomy can be considered as science about constant forms of body and unchangeable psychological parameters of human person.
Anthroponomy can be considered as knowledge about dynamic changes of positions of constant forms of body and varied psychological displays of human person.
Terms of anthropognomy and anthroponomy are equivalent to words physiognomy and physionomy which correspond to constant and dynamic psychological properties which can be seen in features of human face.
Look information about physiognomy and physionomics of human face on pages of other website emotions.64g.ru.
Look information about formal types of physical builds on pages of this website in other sections which are named as constitutions and correlations of bodies.

Emotions or otherwise to tell varied emotional conditions of human personality are shown according to dynamic changes of positions of constant forms of body.
It is possible to tell that as a result of movements of human body in consciousness of people there are impressions which allow to judge psychological changes of emotional conditions of personality.
Dynamic positions of body are caused by exertion of muscles which change natural bends of backbone, that is the reason of visible inclination of corporal forms from vertical balance, and as a result there are poses in which emotional conditions of person are displayed. Namely backbone similarly to a tail of cat signals about changes of emotions provided that tails are absent at people.
It is possible to tell that poses of human body are signs or gestures which are equivalent to movements of cat tails and are shown as symbols of emotions, and consequently can be accessible to perception and understanding.
Literally poses are not gestures as gesticulation is connected with movements of hands. But however mobility of body forms too is original sign language which express intentions and desires, also many other nonverbal displays of human personality.
Diverse poses of human body can be systematized by means of symbols of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing, that is shown on the chart.

basic poses by positions of two formal levels of human body Four basic poses are caused by positions of two formal levels of human body, that corresponds with digrams of the canon of changes i-jing.
Trunk - top lines in digrams.
Thigh - bottom lines in digrams.
If line is entire or unary then formal body level is deflected backward.
If line is break or binary then formal body is deflected forward.
Dark contours on the chart show forms of body figure.
White contours are markers which designate deviations or deflections of body levels from vertical.
If twhite contour is visible behind then body figure has forward deflection.
If white contour is visible in front then body figure has backward deflection.
Movements of head and knees and abdomen in four basic poses of human body are not considered. Namely abdomen in the shown formal figures of body is not shown, also head and knees are conjoined with trunk and thigh.
Ratio of two versions of lines in symbols of canon i-jing with deflections or deviations of formal levels of physical human body from vertical of balance correspond to principles YANG and YIN.
Principle YANG according to philosophical concepts of Chinese canon i-jing corresponds to entire lines and forward deviations of formal body levels.
Principle YIN according to philosophical concepts of Chinese canon i-jing corresponds to binary lines and backward deviations of formal body levels.
That was written by philosophers of Taoism in the book which is named as Science in School of Eight Ba Gua.
"Force of YANG is concealed in receding movement, and force of YIN is carried out in offensive movement".

Values of emotional conditions in the shown poses are equivalent to constant psychological characteristics which are connected with constant forms of body.
Back and breast according to constant psychological characteristics of constant forms of body are connected with thinking, and consequently movements of trunk too correspond with ideas of human personality.
Expressed breast means purposeful ideas, and consequently if trunk deflects forward then pose of body forms symbolizes vigorous aspirations and intentions.
Expressed back means absence of purposeful ideas, and consequently if trunk deflects backward then pose of body forms symbolizes restriction of aspirations and absence of purposeful intentions.
Buttocks and forward muscles of legs according to constant psychological characteristics of constant forms of body are connected with vital forces, and consequently movements of thigh too correspond with display of energetic potential of human personality.
Expressed muscles of legs mean expenditure of vital forces, and consequently if thigh has forward deflection then body pose symbolizes active impulse.
Expressed buttocks mean preservation of vital forces, and consequently if thigh has backward deflection then body pose symbolizes absence of active impulse.
First basic pose of body.
Trunk and thigh have forward deflection from vertical, and consequently this body pose symbolizes purposeful aspirations and active impulse. It is possible to tell that first basic pose of body is vital and means incentive "life position".
Second basic pose of body.
Trunk is deflected backward, but thigh has forward deflection.
Person shows active impulse, that is possible to see in forward deviation of thigh, but aspirations are constrained, that corresponds to backward motion of trunk.
Backward or forward deflections of trunk are equally peculiar for men and women, because purposeful or constrained aspirations can be featured to all people. But it is possible to assume that forward deflection of trunk are more obvious at men, as women protect breast and instinctively deviate backward.
Bottom level of body forms at men and women deviates from vertical unequally.
Backward deflection of thigh is peculiar to women , that shows feature of female emotions. Because women conceal vital force and in essence sexual energy.
Forward deflection of thigh is peculiar to men, that shows feature of male emotions. Because men show sexual energy.

Third basic pose of body.
Trunk is deflected forward, and thigh has backward deflection.
Person shows purposeful aspirations, that is possible to see in forward deviation of trunk, but impulse is passive, that corresponds to backward motion of thigh.
It is possible to speak that person shows emotions only in the event that poses are realized or mediated by consciousness. And if body poses are mechanical and not realized then it is necessary to speak about spontaneous and uncontrollable displays of emotions.
Fourth basic pose of body.
Trunk and thigh have backward deflection from vertical.
Person expresses constrained aspirations and absence of active impulse, that corresponds to backward deviation of trunk and thigh.
Fourth basic pose of body forms can be named as receding.
And first basic pose of body forms can be named as coming.
It is possible to speak that first body pose is peculiar to extroverts.
And fourth body pose is peculiar to introverts in the context of analytical psychology of Carl Gustav Jung.
Also four basic poses of human body can be compared with types of temperament.
First pose - temperament of choleric person.
Second pose - temperament of melancholic person.
Third pose - temperament of sanguine person.
Fourth pose - temperament of phlegmatic person.

Movements of body forms are most significant according to lateral projections at side view. And according to frontal face-to-face projections positional movements of body forms are less significant, that is connected with design features and anatomic structure of physical shapes. Therefore it is possible to consider only lateral projections for analysis of emotional conditions which are connected with poses of human bodies. But in some cases it is possible to consider face-to-face projections, that is shown on the following chart.

face-to-face poses with movements of knees by physical weariness of muscles White numbers correspond to principles YANG and YIN in the context of Chinese numerology.
YANG - number 9.
YIN - number 6.
Top part of body - the case - number 9 - principle YANG.
Bottom part of body - стан - number 6 - principle YIN.
Left half of body - number 9 - principle YANG.
Right half of body - number 6 - principle YIN.
Displacement of trunk to the right - number 96.
Displacement of trunk to the left - number 99.
Displacement of thigh to the right - number 66.
Displacement of thigh to the left - number 69.
Dark contours show formal figure of body.
White contours are markers which designate displacement of formal body levels from vertical.
Ratio of four parts of body with principles YANG and YIN on the chart correspond with information in old Chinese book which has denomination as Science in School of Eight Trigrams.
"Turn on the left in fighting arts designates force YANG, and turn to the right means force YIN".

Tirst face-to-face body pose.
Trunk and thigh are displaced from vertical to the right.
Such displacement is possible if weight of body is transferred on the right leg, and the knee of left leg deviates backward.
Second face-to-face body pose.
Trunk is displaced to the left.
Thigh is displaced to the right.
Such displacement is possible if weight of body is transferred on the right leg, and the knee of left leg deviates forward.
Third face-to-face body pose.
Trunk is displaced to the right.
Thigh is displaced to the left.
Such displacement is possible if weight of body is transferred on the left leg, and the knee of right leg deviates forward.
Fourth face-to-face body pose.
Trunk and thigh are displaced from vertical to the left.
Such displacement is possible if weight of body is transferred on the left leg, and the knee of right leg deviates backward.
Four face-to-face poses are connected with movements of knees whose positions can be caused by physical weariness of muscles, and consequently it is impossible to speak about values of emotional conditions which are displayed in frontal displacement of trunk and thigh concerning vertical of balance.
It is possible to assume that right-handed persons are inclined to have left support footing because right leg should be ready to actions. And lefthanders are inclined to have right support footing because left leg should be ready to actions, but it is impossible to do any conclusions about values of emotional conditions.
But however four face-to-face body poses are essential from the view point of Chinese philosophy of Taoism which is conceptual basis in fighting arts of ancient China and Japan, and in particular is the source of philosophical concepts of Wu Shu and Aikido. Because harmonious unity of dichotomy principles of YANG and YIN, also balance of body are basic idea of Chinese philosophy of Taoism and canon of changes i-jing.
In particular it is written in old Chinese book which has denomination as Essence of Mysterious Gates and is one part of complete set of works of Chinese Taoism about Median Harmony.
"If heart is calm and steady, and does not react on emotional intentions then person perceives transparent clearness of heavenly harmony, and then sacrament Supreme Ultimate has realization. And if emotional intentions appear then deviations arise, also body balance fails, and changes of Taiji or Supreme Ultimate begin".
"If person realizes indivisible TAO then can feel condition of original median harmony of own organism, and then absence of body and emptiness of divine rest are perceived, and movements become correct".

Condition of median harmony is ideal in the context of philosophy of Taoism and fighting arts of ancient China. And consequently original median harmony is esoteric purpose of long exercises and trainings, but actually only in unusual cases can be real and controllable, because human body reacts on emotional intentions and cannot keep balance.
Even if person aspires to balance then however maintains spatial equilibrium or equipoise, namely trunk and thigh are displaced according to face-to-face and lateral projections of body forms.
Because consciousness cannot supervise emotions and as a result human body cannot perceive ideal condition of original median harmony.
Namely consciousness cannot perceive indivisible unity of dichotomy principles of YANG and YIN, that is necessary condition of divine rest according to which movements of human body become correct, as it is written in old Chinese book which has denomination as Selected Manuals of Ancient Teachers of Wu Shu.
"If before to not understand sense of any movement, namely rules of displacement for top and bottom also right and left parts of body forms, then pupil will change poses by own innovations, that actually occurs from ignorance and lack of knowledge".

Following page shows poses in which positions not only trunk and thigh but also abdomen are considered, namely motions of three formal levels of physical figure of human body, that corresponds to symbols of eight trigrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing.
