Can Another Body Be Seen as an Extension of Your Own?
Surprising results show the fluidity of the "body schema"
By Julie Sedivy on January 12, 2016
The relationship between a person’s notion of self-hood and the openness of their body schema to another human being hints that perhaps it’s no coincidence that tango, which takes entanglement to sublime heights, originated in a culture that orients toward interdependence.
They want $500 for me to post an excerpt for up to 12 months.
Fuck that noise.
Here is the link.

File under 4 am epiphanies...ever have something you know to be true? Nagging at you for years...too many years...behind the veil...but there, telling you, asking you notice. Shouting at you to notice. Well, for me, it rang like a big-ass bell really loudly just a bit ago. I'm doing the wrong thing. I've been doing the wrong thing for 37 years. Yes, I love it. Yes, I'm very good at it. But I've felt in a corner of my soul that it's not what I was meant to do, not what I want to do - "Do", or "DO" in this life. I've been getting the signal(s) over the years, and have largely ignored them. I hear, and notice, and ponder, and roll it around in my hands and look closely at it - very aware and lucid and alert. But I still ignore those signs where the rubber meets the road. I "knew" what I wanted to do, and what I didn't want to do, in this life - way back when I was 16 or 17. At the ripe age of 18, I got sidetracked. I have a history of taking paths I don't really want to take. Not want I truly madly deeply full of love and bliss "want" to do. I travel down those paths for far too long. Water under the bridge. Lost opportunities for some fucking richness in this life. No regrets, though, right?. There is still plenty of time. Time to change. Time to manifest some new reality.

Our Last Tango
Un Tango Mas (original title)
A film by German Kral
"Our Last Tango“ is above all a love story. A story of love between the two most famous dancers in tango’s history. And the story of their tremendous love of tango.
María Nieves Rego (80) and Juan Carlos Copes (83) met when they were 14 and 17, and they danced together for nearly fifty years. In all those years they loved and hated each other and went through several painful separations but always got back together. No other man danced like Juan and no other woman danced like María!
Eventually, he left her for good for a woman 20 years younger with whom he fathered two children.
Now, at the end of their lives, Juan and María are willing to open up about their love, their hatred, and their passion.
In "Our Last Tango“ Juan and María tell their story to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies. These beautifully-shot choreographies compliment the soul-searching interviews and documentary moments of the film to make this an unforgettable journey into the heart of the tango.

Anyone know any of the details behind this video, uh film clip, rather? Besides the fact that it stars Tobey McGuire's grandfather (right in the beginning)?
