(chronosomatically) Contemplating the Navel
The sequence of supplanting something long standing with a concentration of new reality and subsequent expansion, describes concisely the morphological interrelationship of the hip bones and the navel, and, moreover, the superimposition of the Timepiece gauge and the human skeleton displays three significant features along these lines. First, as the plane of the present steadily moved upward, it ceased to engage the hip bones precisely as it began to engage the navel, substantiating a penetratingly exact transition. As is self-evident, the hip bones are a pair and the navel is a sole entity, therefore, the changeover from hip bones to navel evinces (another) corporal transcendence from duality to singularity. Second, the hip bones are the highest part of the body to morphologically participate in ambulation, and, thus, the plane of the present's rising above the crest of the hip bones ends its thousands of years engagement with the corporal operation of walking. Third, the overlay of the Timepiece gauge and the skeleton clearly displays that the series of years between 1500 and 2000 correspond directly with the peripheral skeletal hiatus between the hip bones and the rib cage. This lack of a dominant skeletal structure along the torso's edge is unique, and this skeletal gap, moreover, manifests the section of the human body where expansion most readily occurs. Taken individually and in combination then, all three of the these chronosomatic characteristics provide the outline for a fresh analysis of the time both before and after the Renaissance.
