When an abnormality occurs in a person such as a disaster, avoidance action is automatically activated. This does not mean that a person thinks about the situation with his brain and takes action. I often hear that the body moves reflexively, and one of these reactions is the homeostatic reaction. In this homeostatic reaction, the ability to detect danger that is naturally memorized (in some cases, it is transmitted by inheritance) and the ability to detect danger that the body remembers from experience are recorded in the visceral sensation, and it is conscious that a person is in a dangerous state. It is known as a reaction in which the beast’s instinct works without it and collates with the visceral sensation to cause evasive action. This reaction is also called a defense reaction and is a well-known fact.
In the homeostatic reaction, when a person encounters a disaster, the information experienced by the five senses (called external receptor senses) is transmitted to the body through two systems, neurotransmission and blood transmission. Even if a person does not exercise consciousness, life or death is automatically made when the body collates with the visceral sensation (called internal receptive sensation) to judge whether it is dangerous or not based on the sensation of the dangerous situation that has entered. It is judged as a dangerous state related to, and emotions and cognition are born in parallel.
Dangers that have already been experienced or can be predicted are recognized as known disorders and produce scary emotions. Experiences that have never been experienced are judged as unknown experiences and become anxious and fearful. The series of reactions described here is called homeostatic reaction = homeostasis. Homeostasis is an instant reaction of the body, not the brain.
The skill improvement simulation supported by RiMM trains a series of skill movements so that the homeostatic reaction can occur by experiencing them with the five senses while moving the body, and memorize them in the body. This is called “habit”. We believe that by having the body memorize a series of skill operations and repeatedly executing them in a homeostatic reaction, mistaken operations can be prevented and safety can be improved. If you proceed further, emotions will be generated, and if the conditions that can reproduce the state where the heart is born are satisfied, you will be able to reach the improvement of sensitivity. Therefore, in safety education, education to improve risk sensitivity must establish the conditions under which homeostatic reactions occur and the conditions under which emotions are generated and the minds of “scary” and “dislike” occur. In order to satisfy this condition, RiMM is focusing on reproducing the phenomenon that satisfies the establishment condition centering on the five senses.
