I will be reposting these on ontoxenos on tuesdays and thursdays.

They weren’t really encouraging a ‘body’ but cloning.

A human body is a complex thing. While there are 5 senses, there are 206 bones, about 360 joints, over 600 muscles and over 900 ligaments. The heart pumps blood through almost 600 miles of blood vessels including 300 million capillaries. There are many different ‘parts’ of a body.
