“Black In The Face” is a term used to describe the energy distribution visible in the face of a human being. The ideal human face should have an even distribution of energy across it’s entire surface. An even distribution of energy across the face would be associated with both good health and a balanced body.
Very generally, there are two causes that will produce the darkening of the face that is called “Black In The Face”. Any type of permanent or temporary health problem will cause a darkening of the face, and both temporary or permanent tightening of the head and body will cause a darkening of the face. The part of the face that becomes dark is directly related to the health problem affecting the individual, or directly related to the part of the head and body that has become tight.
The example picture for this blog entry is shown below.
The line in the next picture follows the boundary between the light and dark areas of the girl’s face.
This girl has “Right Side Black In The Face. The right side of her head is not filled out as it should be, so it appears dark. Because the right side of her head is not filled out, it is not strong enough to hold her head erect. The girl’s head exhibits a slight tilt the right as highlighted in the next picture.
Someone who has read through the previous entries in this series might be ready to label this example as a severe case of “Black In The Face”, because the condition of the girl’s right eye matches the eyes of other example individuals in this series who were described as severe cases. The girl’s right eye is so dark it almost looks like a dark cave.
The girl’s left eye is changed in a way that would be described as “a severe bodily change” if it was the result of some kind of bodily abuse. The reason the eye of the girl is not being labeled “severe”, is because the changes in her body are age related and not related to bodily abuse of some kind.
Instead of bodily abuse degenerating and harming the right eye until it becomes like a dark black cave, the young girl’s right eye looks like a dark black cave because it is not fully grown. As the girl ages, the right side of her body and head should grow into and fill out the left eye, until it appears bright and healthy like the left eye does in this picture.
So to be clear, from a scientific standpoint, the girl’s left eye is degenerated or not working properly by an amount which does qualify for the label “severe”.
Because she is young and the left eye should look normal when she gets older, the author would argue that “severe” is an improper label, because the word “severe” gives the impression the problem is irreparable and permanent.
