The perception of reality, involved in human experience and decision making, is rooted in a rational paradigm which has developed over centuries. However, to the extent that this paradigm has a tendency to reduce and generalize phenomena which are in fact individual and special features of the nature of reality, the rational paradigm is responsible for inexpedient procedures in many fields of human activity. This paper investigates such consequences in very different areas: within the arts and in the treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunctions in order to account for the structural character of the human mind and the role of “narration” in human understanding, and to suggest a holistic treatment – the Proprioceptive Activation System – for disorders in the musculoskeletal system.
