On Exploring a Journey Within

The human body is the best picture of the human soul. (Ludwig Wittgenstein)

I acknowledge the privilege of being alive in a human body at this moment, endowed with senses, memories, emotions, thoughts, and the space of mind in its wisdom aspect. (Alex Grey)

The bottom line is that the human body is complex and subtle, and oversimplifying – as common sense sometimes impels us to do – can be hazardous to your health. (Andrew Weil)

A human body is a conversation going on, both within the cells and between the cells, and they’re telling each other to grow and to die; when you’re sick, something’s gone wrong with that conversation. (W. Daniel Hillis)

A friend of ours was the engineering type – especially with mechanicals. He lost his job, then decided to become a surgical nurse. Because he initially struggled with biology, I helped him. Once he looked beyond the memorization biology requires, he started making engineering connections regarding the human body, which he eventually called the greatest engineering feat … thus tutoring was no longer necessary.
