      Most definately.  Studying this has been a pet project of mine for about 40 years, ever since I had 2 kidney infections and the doctors and hospital couldn't even tell me why.  Since then i read everything I can get my hands on.  Lately, though, information and advancements have grown exponentially and it's hard to keep up.

      Poor guy seems to have lost some of his body, and not just the skin...

      One aspect of our human body which I find so impressive, is the ability of the knee and ankle joints to withstand years of hard work, supporting half of the body mass, with such endurance.

      Think of the body weight - over 200 LB in some people, yet the joints carry one regardless, self-repairing, self-lubricating.

    I find the workings of the body fascinating, also!

    The brain is fascinating. I hate teeth and the whole elimination process. And fat storage. Why on earth do we have to have fat storage?

    Meh...the human body is great, but I find the cells and genes that craft make and wield it to be more interesting.

    And I bet most everyone will avoid writing about those juicy bits - the sexy and sensual ones, which you think will shock people into supposing your are not a nice person to know!   Right?

    I mean it's ALL about the human body.   No more fascinating than the body of an ant, really.  Or a horse; or jelly fish!  Let you into a secret - they all do it, they all have just the right equipment, like the mouth and the anus and the oxygen exchange mechanism and a circulatory system, and a reproductive system, etc., etc.

    Each bit works just perfect for the habitat and the environment which the organism finds itself in.  Every bit as amazing as each other.

    The only bit we can't define, which the human has and, as far as we are aware, the others don't have, is the thinking bit.  It's not physical, so we can't measure it.  IN-finite.  Right?  We humans seem to be the only ones who can look back at our selves, and contemplate our own existence!

      We are now realizing that other animals DO think - they exhibit empathy, plan for the future and so on.

      We are not unique, but only advanced.
