The Postural Complex Process

Postural process and balanceThe Posturoception ® is a method for restructuring the emerging function of our perception organs, called the Postural Complex Process (PCP). The postural process controls itself through the perception of the environment that we continuously evaluate.

Of course, most of the time the Postural Complex Process is active without our noticing. But at each moment, we ask ourselves such questions as : “Do I have time to cross? Am I strong enough to do this work? Is that not too heavy for me? Am I not too heavy to stand on it? Am I not too small, too old, too small, too slow to do this or that? ” that proove that our PCP is active. We regularly ask ourselves these questions consciously, when our monitoring process alerts us of a possible problem, a misfit between us and the external environment.

But as a matter of fact, at every second an instant assessment of our situation occurs through our body schema, without being aware. The body schema enables at any time to know our volume, our weight, our span, our step length, our position in space, our strength that our PCP use to instantly compare with the external volume that can accommodate it or not. The PCP also compares with the position of objects and people that are too far or too close or at a good distance, and with the constraints of the environment that oppose us.

This constant comparison between our memory of ourselves and the world around us, gives birth to our “I” :  I am different from others and I exist in the environment. The PCP grants integrity by permanently evaluating the environment for « me» without my being aware.

The Postural Complex Process comes out from our ability to perceive the environment. It is the cause of this extraordinary quality that is called “adaptation”, which allows us to live in both a fluctuant environment and body, without losing at any time the perception of being ourself.
