Have you ever sat in a chair and tried balancing yourself by tilt backwards onto the back two legs of the chair? (I am not recommending anyone try this while sitting in a chair - it can be dangerous and you can fall backwards and get hurt! I just realize that it is something I have done in my youth and I have seen my own children do it, too - and, of course, I cautioned them against it.) Perhaps you held onto the table in front of you and used your arms to push yourself backwards to find the balance point? You may remember doing this when you were a child in either grade school or high school. Some of you may have experienced going past the tipping point and having the chair fall behind you or if you were lucky enough, you quickly recovered by moving your weight forward to prevent falling backwards.
