First sentences

In this lecture / course I will follow more or less the path of recognition that I traveled through the land of fascia on my own. It will be so to say my way or My fascia: my scientific biography through the landscape of fascia.
I am a relative outsider. I am not a practitioner working with fascia, I started as a medical anatomist. For me fascia was not something like a general system or even organ, fascia was like “muscle” spilt up in anatomical structures and elements (fascia lata, fascia generalis, fascia cruris, etc. etc.)..
So I will start to tell about my work as anatomist, …. In those days I was just a regular medical anatomist and for me the notion “The fascia” as it most of the time is applied by osteopaths was not familiar to me. Of course there was something like “fascia generalis” covering and enveloping structures and organs and I knew about fasciae (plural) enveloping structures or muscles in the locomotor system, but something like the fascia as a functional system in the body was not a notion that is familiar in medical research and medical biology.
