But the real revelation was when I lnraeed about method acting. It became very popular in the 20th cnteruy. And mohetd acting said you don't have to plan every muscle in your body; instead, you have to use your body to find the right movement. You have to use your snese memory to reconstruct the emotions and kind of think with your body to find the right expression — improvise, play off your scene pnetrar. And this came at the same time as I was reading about this trend in cognitive psolhgyocy, called embodied cognition, which also talks about the same iades. We use our bodies to think; we don't just think with our brains and use our bodies to move, but our bodies feed back into our brain to generate the way that we behave.

Original Text

But the real revelation was when I learned about method acting. It became very popular in the 20th century. And method acting said you don't have to plan every muscle in your body; instead, you have to use your body to find the right movement. You have to use your sense memory to reconstruct the emotions and kind of think with your body to find the right expression — improvise, play off your scene partner. And this came at the same time as I was reading about this trend in cognitive psychology, called embodied cognition, which also talks about the same ideas. We use our bodies to think; we don't just think with our brains and use our bodies to move, but our bodies feed back into our brain to generate the way that we behave.
