“The biological man must be looked at as a collection of systems, not of atomistic aggregates; this in itself takes him out of a closed universe. The characteristic of systems is that relationship is the determinant of the final figure.”-Ida P. Rolf, Ph.D.

…Linearity probably arose originally as a projection of man himself, because man speaks linearly one word after another he tends to think linearly, one idea after another…. Basically this was the frame on which hich the physiomechanical revolution of the 17th century was constructed…..When I was a “scientist” fifty years ago, my credo was that given time, this type of science of logical, linear thinking would describe-all that is within our universe. Life and time have uncovered the limitations of the notion…. The universe is opening its “nothing but” hard boundaries are disappearing. It is becoming defined by the position of its center rather than by hard boundaries…. A closed universe can be seen as a projection of a higher abstraction of an Open Universe.-Ida P. Rolf, Ph.D Structural Integration and the Open Universe 1974
