The picture below shows a statue of the Indian God known as “Kali”.

The statue of Kali shows a human being with two pairs of arms.

The inspiration for those two pairs of arms is the fact the human body can feel as if it has multiple pairs of arms.

According to Yin Yang Theory, everything in the universe can be divided into Yin and Yang. That would include the human body since a human body is an object in the universe.

The human body itself can be described in terms of Yin and Yang in a number of ways. One way is to describe the human body as consisting of two halves, one of which is Yin and one of which is Yang.

 There is a particular pattern to where the Yin parts of the body are and where the Yang parts of the body are. Pointing those areas out can best be accomplished using a picture of a human body on it’s hands and knees as if it were an animal on all fours. 

The “down on all fours” posture makes it easier to point out the Yin and Yang areas of the body because “Yin” is associated with what is called “the internal part of the body”, while Yang is associated with what is called “the external part of the body”, and the “down on all fours” pose of a human body makes the internal and external areas of the body obvious.

The external area of a human body down on all fours would be the outside of the legs,

and the back,

because they the external parts of the closed shape formed by a human body on all fours.

The internal part of the body is the inside of the arms and legs,

and the chest an stomach,

because they are on the inside of the closed shape created by a human body on all fours.

The god Kali has four arms is because two of the arms represent the Yin part of the normal arms,

while the other two arms represent the Yin part of the normal arms.

A Cyclops is a mythical creature with one eye.

There are more than one possible inspiration for the invention of the Cyclops. One possible inspiration is the way a human being whose body has been changed in a certain way behaves. Even though the human being has two eyes, they will tend to focus out of only one eye like the individual in this picture.

Whoever it was that created the legend of the Cyclops noticed that other members of the group he was a part of looked like the individual above. The reason a Cyclops is described as a monster is because the creator of the Cyclops legend noticed unpleasant mental and behavioral changes in the individuals who only focused out of one eye. 

 The legend of the Cyclops could be thought of as a warning. It is warning whoever hears it that any human being who tends to focus out of one eye like the individual in the example picture, would have a tendency to engage in unpleasant or “monster like” behavior.

Why do some human beings behave as if they are looking out of only one eye?

A human being might display the tendency to look out of one eye for reasons of birth. There are activities though that can cause the development of a tendency to look out of one eye.

Masturbation, Excessive Sexual Activity, Homosexuality, Excessive Exercise, Injection Of Drugs, Snorting Of Drugs, Youth, Old Age, Analytical Thought, and Anorexia, are all associated with the tendency to focus out of only one eye.

Individuals with Youth associated Cyclops Eye will usually grow out of that condition as they age into adulthood.

The likely cause of Cyclops Eye in the example picture is Homosexuality.

The second possible inspiration for the creation of the Cyclops legend is that even though a human being has two eyes in their head,

they will tend to move their head as if they have one large eye in the center of their head.

That image can be admittedly hard to visualize. Try imagining the human head in the picture above looking exactly like this real life Cyclops animal.

Or maybe a side by side comparison could be helpful.

It is hard to see this Cyclops eye in a normal human body because it is in the center of the normal two eyes. Anyone observing the movements of a normal human body would only see the head moving to aim both normal eyes.

This type of Cyclops eye is much easier to see in an unhealthy human body because the Cyclops Eye points in a different direction than the two normal eyes.

For example. If the Cyclops Eye points to the right side of the head, when the affected individual sees something of interest, an observer will see the affected individual aim the right side of the head at the object of interest, like this individual is aiming the right side of their head at the interesting camera,

instead of aiming the center of the head at the object of interest like the woman in this picture is aiming the center of her face at the interesting camera.

Martial arts is another name for “hand to hand combat”. Practitioners of martial arts wear a uniform that is tied with a belt like the belt on the martial arts uniform in this picture.

The belt of a martial arts form is used to denote rank in many martial arts.  A unique color will be assigned to the belts for each rank. A common belt color ranking system would start with white for beginners, progress through yellow, blue, brown, red, and finally black for the highest ranked members.

Legends claim the highest level members had a black belt because they had been practicing for so long that the belt had become black with ground in dirt, sweat, and grime.

The martial arts belt is based on the behavior of a group of muscles and tendons within the body that pull the waist area forwards. 

The cartoon character in this picture has the type of waste being described.

The waist is so far in front of the body that it pulls the back out of it’s natural straight up and down shape,

into a V-shape.

The martial arts belt was created to train the muscles and tendons in question, because they are useful in the performance of the martial arts.

Having the student go through the motions involved in wrapping the belt around their waste, pulling it forwards to tighten it,

and knotting it in a specific way every time they trained, exercised the muscles and tendons that pull the waste forwards just like repetitive punching exercises the arms and kicking exercises the legs. 

The type of knot the belt is tied in is an important part of the training. When the arms and hands move in the specific way necessary to create a knot in the belt, those exact movements are transmitted to and duplicated by the muscles and tendons involved in pulling the waist forwards.

This picture shows a Round Personal Combat War Shield.

The Round Shield is based on the construction of the chest area of the human body. The human body in approximately the area circled in this picture,

is one large spiral. Those spirals can be visualized as looking like the coiled up snake in this picture.

This picture superimposes the spiral shape of the coiled up snake on the chest of the human body model to help with visualizing how the spiral inside of the chest area looks.

And then a close up of one side of the chest for even more clarity.

The coiled up snake body has an overall circular shape.

If the lines in between the coils of the snake body are ignored, the coiled up snake looks like a solid circle.

This picture compares the solid circle of the Round Shield to the coiled up snake body.

It is that solid appearance and behavior of the spiral in the chest area that was the inspiration for creating a Round Shield. The image of the shield is placed over the chest area of the model human body in this picture.

Those shields on the chest look almost exactly like a warrior holding the shield for use.

That similarity supports the claim the Round Shield was based on a spiral located inside of the chest of the human body.

It is interesting to note that the decorative lines on the Round Shield look like the lines between the coils of the coiled up snake.

Is that a coincidence? Or is it a sign that the creator of that particular shield knew the round shield was meant to mimic the circular shape of the spiral within the chest of the human body?
