How much do you really know about your own body? Do you understand why something is bothering you and do you listen to the signals the body sends you? Your body and brain are insanely S.M.A.R.T. And they will keep you alive to every price. Have you ever reflected on how many breaths per day you take? Have you ever reflected on the fact that your heart will keep beating for years and years and you don’t have to do anything to make it beat. It is self regulated. Have you ever thought of when and why you have to pee and how you just know how to walk?

 

I am fascinated, overwhelmed and amazed by the human body. There are systems for everything in your body. And then systems within the systems. You have a skeletal system (skeleton and bones) that can be subdivided into the articular system (joints and related structures). You have a muscular system that includes the skeletal muscles which move the skeleton, you also have the cardiac muscle of the heart walls and the smooth muscle of the walls of viscera and vessels. Furthermore, you have a cardiovascular system that consists of the heart, arteries, capillaries and veins conducting blood to the tissues and importing and exporting nutrients to the every cell in our body. You have the lymphatic system, which is a system of vessels assisting vessels in recovering the bodys tissue fluids and returning them to the heart. The lymph nodes filter lymphs throughout the body. The most fascinating system of them all is the nervous system (or at least I think it is the most amazing system due to its brilliant and complexity). I wrote about the nervous system last week so you should have a brief understanding of what it is. You have probably heard of the endocrine system, which is a system that consists of glands that secrete hormones into the tissue fluids and blood. They are under the control by the hypothalamus and will help metabolic functions, sleep and much more. Last but not least, you have the integumentary system, which consists of the skin, sensory receptors, layers of cells that will protect your body from environmental factors that are harmful to the body. 

 

Who came up with this? And planned it so extremely well? Is it evolution? I believe in science. 100 percent. But sometimes I do think to myself, is it only science and evolution or something much bigger behind the human body and life?
