We use to think that the body can receive a life history, but cannot command it. This fact is proved by the minor role the body plays in the decisions we take concerning our life. They are taken on the basis of a lot of immaterial matters: conceptions (especially the common conceptions), dogmas, temporarily presuppositions and so on.
The space of the resolutions of the body is generally limited to the areas of consuming and discharging.
However, just like a monument that lasts through a long history, the body continually defies the history of someone’s life.
Though permanently isolated into the two areas, it sporadically reminds through diseases or wounds that it firmly lies beyond any life decision.
Finally, it consumes the whole person and discharges itself into death.
If it is an art of living, it should follow the simple functions of the body in order to prevent the final lesson. The decisions should be acts of consuming and the act of refraining from them a discharge. In both cases, the objects of consumption and discharge must be chosen from those redundant spiritual matters.
