Reorganization story?

[From Norman Hovda (2000.06.13.1020 MST)]

Would the following be an example of "reorganization"?



I have been rowing for aerobic exercise about 15 years. Most of that
time has been spent on a Ergometer rowing machine. "Originally
designed as an off-water training device for on-water rowers, it rapidly
caught on with people who had never rowed on the water."

The seat slides back and forth on a rail as the legs and arms pull
against air resistance in a smooth and fluid motion. Needless to stay,
over years of 30+ minute rowing sessions, I have grown very accustom
to to the _feel_ of my experience while rowing on the Ergometer.

My "reorganization", if I am correct in labelling it as such, occurred
when I recently obtained an add-on device which causes the entire
Ergometer to slide freely back and forth on a track and supposedly
more accurately simulate rowing on water.

Using this slide feature for the first time was quite different from what I
had expected, much more of a significant change than I had ever
imagined and somewhat disorienting. My balance was thrown off as the
entire Ergometer now slid back and forth _below_ my body where before
I slid back and forth _above_ a stationary machine.

Confronted with many new sensations I found it initially quite
disconcerting. My comparators must have encountered huge errors for
reference levels long established, but slowly and ever so slowly for every
30 minute session over the next three to four months, about 40-50
sessions in all, my body and muscles seemed to adapt and adjust so
that use of the new apparatus and it's impact on my perceptions of my
own rowing experience once again began to feel more normal, i.e., old
reference levels had changed and/or various errors were reduced as


Am I in the ball park calling this story an example of "reorganization" for
a living control system?
