The Biomechanics of Shame and Sadness

What does it mean to have a face?
The face is an anotomical structure
Made up of muscle and bone like
Every other part of the body.
Let us call this the scientific view.
The scientific view is useful to consider
In contrast with what might be called
The natural view,  that our faces are
Primarily the loci of expression and
Recognition and the most direct
Representation of a person’s personality.

Looking down is mechanically non-negligible action.
