    I'm of the view that there are forms of dancing that parlay one's present energy into a greater energetic form of Shamanistic understanding.
    This intelligence is almost purely energetic and may not translate to verbalization very well.
    For me you see it in the nastolgic reverence you see someone lost in when they visit a martial arts studio and yearn so much for their younger days when they were involved in such, for me what they are yearning for is this energetic state of equanimity that is something you get beyond working out with weights or aerobics.
    It is my contention that perfection in dance and such movement is only possible through accessing areas of your aura, your energy body and in effect, really for all intents and purposes, moving the assemblige point. A powerfull form of Not-Doing if you will in so far as the Castaneda works state.

    It's kind of a way of reaching that 46&2 reference discussed by Drunvello Melchezidek and the band TOOL here in this song.

    Awesome, but it's sad, imo, that the original tribal music has been overdubbed like that. . .

    Has it also been speeded up? I have a friend who is a dancer and she almost kept pace with the speed, but not quite, and she had difficulty keeping her upper torso still. Personally, I would love to hear the original. Would there have been the gentleman behind him if it had been a ritual dance? If it were not in this format, would we have ever seen it? I always play it when I need cheering up. As you say, it is awesome. So sorry you are sad.

    Here's the original dance, it's called the Zaouli Mask dance.

    From Wikipedia:

    Zaouli is a traditional dance of the Guro people (who speak the Guro language) of central Ivory Coast. The Zaouli mask, used in the dance, was created in the 1950s, reportedly inspired by a girl named "Djela Lou Zaouli" (meaning "Zaouli, daughter of Djela"). However, stories on the origins of the mask are varied, and each mask can have its own symbolic history.

    Each Guro village has a local Zaouli dancer (always male), performing during funerals and celebrations. The dance is believed to increase the productivity of a village that it is performed in, and is seen as tool of unity for the Guro community, and by extension the whole country.





    Love and Truth,

    Based on the guy near him and the folks in the background, I'd say the video wasn't sped up.

    “Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence” (“Body Smart”) is one of the 9 types of multiple intelligences.


    Resources:1. Naturalist Intelligence (“Nature Smart”)
     
    Designates the human ability to discriminate among living things (plants, animals) as well as sensitivity to other features of the natural world (clouds, rock configurations).  This ability was clearly of value in our evolutionary past as hunters, gatherers, and farmers; it continues to be central in such roles as botanist or chef.  It is also speculated that much of our consumer society exploits the naturalist intelligences, which can be mobilized in the discrimination among cars, sneakers, kinds of makeup, and the like. 
     
    2. Musical Intelligence (“Musical Smart”)
     
    Musical intelligence is the capacity to discern pitch, rhythm, timbre, and tone.  This intelligence enables us to recognize, create, reproduce, and reflect on music, as demonstrated by composers, conductors, musicians, vocalist, and sensitive listeners.  Interestingly, there is often an affective connection between music and the emotions; and mathematical and musical intelligences may share common thinking processes.  Young adults with this kind of intelligence are usually singing or drumming to themselves.  They are usually quite aware of sounds others may miss.

    3. Logical-Mathematical Intelligence (“Number/Reasoning Smart”)
     
    Logical-mathematical intelligence is the ability to calculate, quantify, consider propositions and hypotheses, and carry out complete mathematical operations.  It enables us to perceive relationships and connections and to use abstract, symbolic thought; sequential reasoning skills; and inductive and deductive thinking patterns.  Logical intelligence is usually well developed in mathematicians, scientists, and detectives.  Young adults with lots of logical intelligence are interested in patterns, categories, and relationships.  They are drawn to arithmetic problems, strategy games and experiments.
     
    4. Existential Intelligence
     
    Sensitivity and capacity to tackle deep questions about human existence, such as the meaning of life, why do we die, and how did we get here.
     
    5. Interpersonal Intelligence (“People Smart”)
     
    Interpersonal intelligence is the ability to understand and interact effectively with others.  It involves effective verbal and nonverbal communication, the ability to note distinctions among others, sensitivity to the moods and temperaments of others, and the ability to entertain multiple perspectives.  Teachers, social workers, actors, and politicians all exhibit interpersonal intelligence.  Young adults with this kind of intelligence are leaders among their peers, are good at communicating, and seem to understand others’ feelings and motives.
     
    6. Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence (“Body Smart”)
     
    Bodily kinesthetic intelligence is the capacity to manipulate objects and use a variety of physical skills.  This intelligence also involves a sense of timing and the perfection of skills through mind–body union.  Athletes, dancers, surgeons, and craftspeople exhibit well-developed bodily kinesthetic intelligence.
     
    7. Linguistic Intelligence (“Word Smart”)
     
    Linguistic intelligence is the ability to think in words and to use language to express and appreciate complex meanings.  Linguistic intelligence allows us to understand the order and meaning of words and to apply meta-linguistic skills to reflect on our use of language.  Linguistic intelligence is the most widely shared human competence and is evident in poets, novelists, journalists, and effective public speakers.  Young adults with this kind of intelligence enjoy writing, reading, telling stories or doing crossword puzzles.
     
    8. Intra-personal Intelligence (“Self Smart”)
     
    Intra-personal intelligence is the capacity to understand oneself and one’s thoughts and feelings, and to use such knowledge in planning and directioning one’s life.  Intra-personal intelligence involves not only an appreciation of the self, but also of the human condition.  It is evident in psychologist, spiritual leaders, and philosophers.  These young adults may be shy.  They are very aware of their own feelings and are self-motivated.
     
    9. Spatial Intelligence (“Picture Smart”)
     
    Spatial intelligence is the ability to think in three dimensions.  Core capacities include mental imagery, spatial reasoning, image manipulation, graphic and artistic skills, and an active imagination.  Sailors, pilots, sculptors, painters, and architects all exhibit spatial intelligence.  Young adults with this kind of intelligence may be fascinated with mazes or jigsaw puzzles, or spend free time drawing or daydreaming.
