    Fluid moving through bone??
    Lovely movement, but it looks like ordinary muscles moving bones, to me.

      I went through a long phase (decades!) of thinking about this type of movement as being fluid and driven by tides. Cranial Osteopathy was a useful way of framing it, until I knew better and I was a great fan of those who were interested in fluids, particularly CSF.

      Fluid as a driver becomes redundant when one considers the extent of the nervous system. For years I was thinking in terms of the main branches that look like a river system, instead of the terminal fuzzball.

      She has a point about bone though, living bone is surprisingly bendy.

        Diane, I agree with you.

        Using words like "sacred dance, primordial wisdom (and the like)" is a powerful thing to do. It evokes our communal desire to "go home." It preys upon that desire, whether it knows it or not.
