Physicality is an important facet of who we are. We often say there’s nothing more important than our physical well-being, something to which we pay tribute with our annual physical.

What makes us physical is the Greek Physis — a principle that describes the progressive change a subject undergoes in its development towards a particular end — for example, the acorn developing into an oak tree. It’s that special path towards fulfillment of individual destiny that every living thing is destined to take.
