I can swim like the others

only I have a better memory

than the others. I have not

forgotten my former inability

to swim. But since I have not

forgotten it my ability to swim

is of no avail and I cannot

swim after all.

F. Kafka , Parables and Paradoxes

How does the surrounding, living world mould and modify our bodies and how can we talk about that?
