"You are so used to the upright posture that sou f:Ul to realise what a special com plex mechanism is needed to enable you to assume it. "That the upright is not the body's normal position is easily shown by the fact that a man nods as he is tailing asleep; for as soon as the con trolling nervous force is deadened the head drops forward by its own weight "The fact is that when we are stand ins a large number of powerful mus cles, both back and front, are simul taneously at work, the effect of theii action being to neutralise each other. Thus, the legs would fall forward were It not that they are kept vertical on the feet by the strong tendon at the back of the heel. At the same time the muscles of the thighs are tightened so as to prevent us taking a sitting position, and the muscles of the back are pulled tense so that the trunk does not stoop forward.
