“The human body is a marvel of engineering. From the muscular, skeletal and human consciousness system of the hand working in concert to allow us to type, eat, and caress to the circadian rhythms of the heart and digestive system keeping things moving despite our consciousness being elsewhere, our bodies are far more complex and awe-inspiring than any man-made creation.” – Alexander Tsairas & Barry Werth.
