The Basic Structure of Our Body
Human beings, like other animals, live in groups. But human beings have an astonishing number of ways of doing things in groups of two, three, or four. We talk, we think, we argue, we fall in love, we fight, we sing, we dance, we cry, we laugh, we sing and dance and cry and laugh, we build stuff, we destroy it, we make music, we tell stories, we play games, we fight wars, we sing at funerals, we worship God, we despair, we worship celebrities, we exchange sex, we hate each other, we love each other, we plan things far in advance, we improvise, we make up stories, we repeat stories, we invent religions, we invent science, we invent technology, we invent machines, we invent money, we invent games, we invent computers, we invent new languages, we invent new kinds of music, we invent new kinds of dance, we invent new kinds of stories, we invent new kinds of religions, we invent new kinds of technology, we invent new kinds of machines, we invent new kinds of money, we invent new kinds of games, we invent new kinds of computers, we invent new kinds of languages, we invent new kinds of dance.
We, humans, have evolved three structures, or modes of being: the physical structure we have inherited from our ancestors, the representation of the world (our senses), and the mind or consciousness that allows us to respond to the world.
The human body is a physical structure, and it evolved to do its job. It evolved to protect us from predators and to give us mobility. That job is now done, but the body still performs it well.
The mind, by contrast, has evolved over time. It changed over millions of years. And the changes all seem to have been for the better. It is easier to learn new ideas now. Communication is better. And humans have much more able to deal with uncertainty.
The mind’s development has also been influenced by the structure of the body. The brain is a part of the body, and the brain is a physical structure. The physical structure of the brain affects its function. For example, the brain is very large. It takes up almost one-fifth of a person’s body weight.
But the brain weighs only about a percent and would be a tiny fraction of a percent of body weight if it were not for the physical structure of the rest of the body. If the brain were smaller (or larger), it couldn’t function.
The mind is also influenced by the structure of language. Language is a representation of the world, and the representation of the world affects the mind.
The structure of language, like the structure of the brain, evolved over time. The changes in the structure of the language have been more gradual, but they have also been more lasting. Language has very broad implications for the way we think.
Between the physical structure of the brain and the structure of language, evolution had more freedom. Not only can the physical structure affect function, but language can also affect the mind.
The human brain is a lot more capable than many people think. But the reason we do as well as we do is that our brains are organized the way we are. The human brain is a single organ, but there are three basic parts to it. The reptilian brain is the part that controls automatic actions, like breathing and blinking.
The mammalian brain, sometimes called the “thinking” brain, is what we use for planning and reasoning. The human brain is what lets us do the two kinds of thinking together.
The reptilian brain, the mammalian brain, and the human brain are each specialized to a different kind of activity. The reptilian brain is good at routines.
Physical Structure of the Human Body
We all have a physical body, and we all have three basic types of structure. Some structures, such as bones, are solid; others, such as skin, are soft and flexible. Some structures, such as the heart, are pumps and valves; others, such as the lungs, are filters.
We also have a number of structures that are not solid but solid-looking, such as the exoskeleton and the mantle of an insect. These look like solid things, but in fact, they are flexible. The giraffe’s neck, for example, consists of 19 separate vertebrae that fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.
Some structures are not solid but fluid-like, such as blood. Our blood is yellow because it contains a lot of bilirubin, which absorbs yellow light. Blood cells, too, are fluid-like: they change shape, and flow around organs, to take up the oxygen and nutrients they need.
Finally, we have structures that are not solid at all, such as plasma. Plasma, which is a liquid, is secreted by cells. It contains red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Plasma makes up most of the blood in our bodies.
- Height (Tall or Short)
- Weight (Fat or Skinny)
Height (Tall or Short)
Height is a human trait, like skin or hair color. As a trait, height is genetically determined.
But height is also a social trait, like eye color. The taller you are, the more society expects you to contribute; shorter people tend to be pushed out.
Height is also a personality trait. Sometimes tall people do something short people won’t do. And sometimes short people do something that tall people won’t do.
Height is like having your personality split into two different parts; the tall one you see and the shorter one you don’t.
Height is like a thumbprint. In fingerprints, each ridge is a ridge, not a person. In height, each peak is a peak, not a person. The fingerprint and the height are qualities you inherit, like eye color. But they aren’t the same thing.
Height is like the fingerprint because it makes us unique. But height seems to be more like the height someone chooses. People choose a height, but height is inherited.
So, there are at least three kinds of heights: the height you inherited, the height you chose, and the height your parents chose.
The height you choose is what you value. If you value being short, you will choose to be short. If you value being tall, you will choose to be tall.
The height your parents chose is what they had. If you had a height-choosing parent, then you inherited that height.
The height your parents chose is what you need. If you value being tall, but you were born short, you need your parents’ height.
The height of a tall person is often the first thing you hear about them. But height is not a very good measure of how tall someone is.
For one thing, it is surprisingly hard to measure, and different measurement techniques tend to give different results, sometimes wildly so. For example, height is a remarkably stable number in the same population, so people tend to have a similar average height. But every twenty centimeters of height is a twenty-centimeter gain or loss.
For another, being tall is an advantage only in certain situations. A tall person can work at heights where a short person can’t. A tall person can jump off a twenty-meter tower without a problem. But tall people are also vulnerable to injury from heights.
So, height is a good measure of how tall a person is, but not a very good measure of how successful or tough they are.
In contrast, the length of someone’s arms is a good measure of how tall they are, and also a good measure of how successful or tough they are. A long arm, for example, is a means of reaching farther, and that can mean the difference between life and death.
A tall person has strength, and a long arm is an expression of that strength.
So, height is a good measure of height, but not a good measure of success or toughness.
In contrast, width is a good measure of success or toughness. A wide person is not only physically strong, but he also has more freedom of movement.
So, height is a good measure of height, but not a good measure of success or toughness.
In contrast, depth is a good measure of success or toughness. A deep person has strength not only in the arms but in the legs and torso as well.
Weight (Fat or Skinny)
As you get older, your skeleton gets longer. The vertebrae thicken, and the intervertebral discs between your vertebrae get bigger and softer. Your muscles get bigger, and your tendons and ligaments become more flexible. Your skin grows thicker, and your blood vessels expand.
All this is called “aging”, but aging isn’t the same thing as getting old. Old people are people who, compared to when they were children, have slowed down, lost some of their energy, and are less able to do everything they used to do.
Aging happens gradually, over many years. Your body has 3 different structures that make it age. First is the fat layer under the skin. This layer gets thicker as you get older. It hides your bones, but it also absorbs some energy from your muscles.
Second, are the blood vessels. As people get older, their blood vessels tend to become less flexible. So older people lose more of the energy that goes through their blood.
The third part is the muscles. As you get older, your muscles get bigger. But your muscles are also less able to contract. So they lose more energy as they get bigger.
All these together mean that as you get older, your bones get heavier, your blood gets thinner, and your muscles get weaker. This makes you heavier, slower, and less able to do things.
But you can also slow down aging. By eating less and moving more. If you eat less and move more, you reduce the fat layer under the skin, which makes the bones heavier. You also reduce the fat layer under the skin, which makes your blood thinner. So, you eat less and move more, and by moving more you reduce the muscles, which makes you lighter.
1. Fat People
FAT people have been around for a long time. Did you know that the word “fat” goes all the way back to Middle English, from the Old French “faith”? Its origins lie in a very old Romance base meaning “to prepare, make ready”.
I don’t mean the guys who are well-fed and healthy, though I don’t mean the opposite either. I mean the people who consider themselves full of “flab”, or fat. If you’re one, you know what I’m talking about.
The conversation surrounding fat people these days is incredibly prevalent, but it’s not the health risks or the topic of body positivity that gets me. It’s everything in between. It’s how we police each other, judge each other, and tell us what we should and shouldn’t look like. And while some of this is invasive to our personal lives, most of it isn’t even true.
The most common fat people are those who have normal body fat. Fat may be all over the body or only localized to the abdomen or elsewhere. In this case, these people can still live a healthy lifestyle by keeping fit and keeping the above tips in mind.
Fat is bad. Fat can cause cardiovascular diseases, strokes, or type 2 diabetes. Not to mention that you don’t want to be fat on your wedding day if you are a woman.
When I was in the 6th grade, I was weighing 148 pounds at the age of 9. At that time, my mom took me to the doctor because of weight gain and he did a blood test on me. We got the results of my blood test back and it said that I was FAT
It’s here we’ll take a dive into this whole obesity epidemic. I’ll begin by giving you my take on why it exists and which side of the fence I’m on. To keep it vague, I think there is a right and wrong way to approach weight loss.
What is fat? How can I be fat if I am not eating much? These two questions are the most commonly asked by overweight people. They wonder why they cannot lose weight even when they exercise and control their diet balance.
The waistline is a knot that instantly and serially has to be tightened by everyone on the planet.
I want to start this post by saying that I’m not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV. For the sake of this post, I keep giving myself an M.D. so I can call myself Dr. John Doe. But don’t worry…I’ve never heard of anyone drawing an accusation of malpractice against self-diagnosed non-doctors. If you learn something, great! If not, relax and have fun with it.
There are 3 structures in human beings. The first one is the physical body, the second is the energy body and the third is the … well… the spirit-beings working in our field. This sounds to … well… weird when I’m talking about it. However, for myself to write in my blog without putting questions in your head, for you to read in my blogs without questioning yourself, I have implemented to do this kind of article. After reading this article you can decide whether you want to believe it or not. It’s up to you.
2. Skinny People
Skinny people: they make you fat, and fat people: they make you skinny. There’s something weird going on in the world — we need to find out what it is.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I imagine it’s because I’m busy with studies and my new job. Welcome to this new post! Skinny is the latest word we often use to describe someone who looks so good you wonder if they’re ill. But we can also use it as an adjective. This is unintentional, but most people that say Skinny do it to refer to the most popular diet out there: Weight Watchers. I’m sure that most of my readers know what this proverbial Skinny is all about, I don’t need to go into deep details with you about it because most of us have either tried or heard about it before and I don’t want to sound like a broken record.
If you’ve been online for a long time, you probably have heard that human beings have 3 structures: the physical, the emotional, and the mental. In this sense, skinny people are those who don’t have a strong connection between any of those structures, and unfortunately, they’re neither healthy nor happy.
You have long heard about skinny people your whole life. I used to be one. I don’t think I ate a single thing for 4 years or so, and dropped from about 140 lbs to about 95 lbs. Living on nothing but water, fruits, and veggies. Also, fasting. Sixteen hours between meals. Weeks on end.
Skinny people eat everything. I can’t stand it. The other day, one of these tall stick figures came into the coffee shop where I work (I know, right? So, mean of me to be bitter about that…) and ordered a small coffee and an English muffin with jelly. A SMALL COFFEE! And she isn’t the only one. I could probably count on one hand the number of fat people who have come in to buy food or drink in this place before I got fired for seething resentment over interns who get paid minimum wage because they have no skills but have a lot of “potential.”
The purpose of the post is not to tell you how to lose weight or become fat, but to diagnose yourself with one of three structures. There are three structures you can have…the “skinny” structure, the “flabby” structure, and the “obese” structure. You may feel that you are not in any of these categories (or that you are in one but not the others) — this is definitely possible. That said if you’re interested in learning about your own body type I invite you to read on.
I am only a newbie to the subject of nutrition and I know that weight loss can seem very complicated at first. If you find the information’s on the internet confusing, it actually proves to be a nightmare. There’re lots of sites providing false statements on how to lose weight that will pull you into confusion and you’ll be trapped for a long period. You will never have firm control over how things work out for you if you only follow the wrong ways to achieve your goal.
It’s not often that I take a step back and actually marvel at how beautiful human beings can be. But the other day, I was walking down the street and turned to see a gorgeous veiny tree trunk walking towards me. It had thick orange-brown skin and long arms and legs attached. The tree trunk’s face looked like a cartoon character with small eyes, thick eyebrows, and bumpy twisted lips.
It is believed that we need sleep to live and stay healthy. We assume we will be okay without it for a period of up to three days which is around the time it takes to fully recover from what is called “sleep deprivation.” We will suffer negative consequences if we don’t get enough sleep regularly. We all know those people who claim they only need four hours of sleep per night which drives those of us who are in desperate need of sleep to begin feeling resentful towards them.
There are 7 billion people on this planet that are all unique individuals. The reality is that there is an infinite number of characteristics that make each individual different from one another. It’s nearly impossible to find two people who are completely the same because everyone has their own personal tendencies, beliefs, opinions, habits, routines, quirks, and values – and especially because we’re all creatures with free will and choice. Humans and the myriad actions we take and freedoms we exercise both externally and internally can be broken down into three structures.
