For those of us that love sports it is sometimes hard to articulate to less interested folk our extreme range of emotion and interaction with the teams and games that we love. Whether or not we realize it as viewers and enthusiasts, we see a deeper meaning to the contest and pageantry of it all. There is something just below the surface that is hard to articulate. Sport is an expression of art. The competitive impulses that have led to our species’ survival are on full display, but in a safer form than martial combat. In those moments where we see an athlete transcend the normal bounds of physical performance, we witness the human will in one of its most distilled forms. We see the psyche pushing the physical body to achieve and accomplish things that might otherwise seem too remote in ordinary circumstances. In these moments we can see that there is more to our physical performance than just muscle memory and training. Inspiration is involved. An inspired athlete, or athletic performance, demonstrates the unique ability of the mind to push the physical world forward. It provides a change in perspective. Multiple views competing honestly toward the goal of victory. Synchronicity at its finest expression.
