Re-Body

Chaos is the opposite of cosmos, it is disorder. Together with chaos comes confusion and uncertainty.

In the face of this confusion, the concept of Salutogenesis – the mechanism through which health is maintained – in other words, the healing mechanism, comes into play.

When considered as a capacity of the human body, together with the concept of Resilience (flexibility-strength) taken from the science of physics, it can be conceptualized and reconstructed as Re-body. When the concept of Resilience is examined through the human body, it may be possible for the body to withstand the negative load in the face of difficulties and to persevere in new ways by improving itself when the chaotic situation disappears or persists.

The concept of Resilience, which, in the face of difficulties, has many meanings, such as the power to try again, toughness, the ability to recover, the capacity to heal, the aptitude for finding new ways, the potential to bounce back creatively, a ceaseless flexibility in existing, the ability to recreate, and an unstoppable life force, appears as a versatile concept that is being used in various fields, ranging from architecture to psychology, from ecology to art, humankind and nature today.

While it could be claimed that the history of humanity itself is a story of Resilience, it can also be said that the concept is becoming stronger day by day and its realm of presence is attracting attention more and more. Resilience was a subject matter that was talked about in psychology since the 1990s, and in the 2000s it became a research topic in the fields of architecture, ecology, art and many more. The concept that Marcus Aurelius has described by saying, ‘The mind adapts and converts to its own purposes the obstacle to our acting’, can be seen as one of the inherent qualities of human beings and their bodies. Resilience is also an ability that can be acquired. Being resilient also necessitates a process that starts with acceptance. The acceptance in question is understanding the existence of a limit, seeing that limit and taking responsibility. The capacity of the body makes progress based on survival. At this point, if the body could bend, make connections, change, and ultimately, remain alive, it is transformed. The quality and the concrete presence of realism are the most important factors that make this possible.

According to Aristotle, the golden ratio or the principle of harmony is possible through moderation and knowing one’s limits. The capacity of moderation, the ability to act or perform according to it provides the human body with the means to see and experience all possibilities. Here, the body actually acts as a mechanism that realizes its own existence.

Resilience is an ancient and immanent quality that the body has since the beginning of human existence. Just like an interface, the body allows both circulation and oscillation in the human realms of thought and physics. While the limits of the body fluctuate within the psychological and physical boundaries in the face of uncertainty and chaos, the capacity of Resilience represents this flexibility. The human body is a reference point, as well as the source, for new endeavours and possibilities. This superior ability of the body emerges in chaos and in the ever-changing and increasingly difficult conditions of life. For the human being experiencing this vital oscillation, the limits of the body are also the limits of Resilience that are yet to be discovered. The human being, who has always found a way to survive, can achieve this with the resources of the body that appear in that instant. With its capacity to adapt and change, by knowing its limits and acting accordingly, the body acquires spaces, instruments and abilities that allow it to reproduce. The limits, possibilities and the worlds stretch the body between thought, emotion and physicality to create the re-body.
