it would look like this...
As far as your brain is concerned, your hands are bigger than your entire torso and legs.
No wonder a paper cut can drive you crazy, but you’ll ignore that aching back for 20 years.
There are a number of reasons our knees, hips, spines and shoulders break down before their time, but this is a big one: we just don’t have enough awareness of them built in. We have to train it in. Your brain pays attention to whatever you decide to pay attention to, and if that’s your body, your brain will map more of that information in. Becoming more aware of how you move builds your brain and protects your body: a win win any way you look at it. Changing up your movement patterns is a great way to build the body map in your brain, but concentrating on your breath does it too. Spend 5 or 6 minutes breathing deeply and slowly today, and explore the whole inside of your torso with your mind while you do. Feel the rib cage move. Get under your shoulder blades. Trace the spine. Circle around the inside of your pelvis. Just notice yourself. Map yourself. And have fun! Your brain doesn’t know what it’s missing.

But your body is designed to heal, feel good, and function without pain for 100 years. We blame the body when it breaks down, but mostly it is the world we've created, and the way we live in it. Your body does the best it can, until it can't anymore.
