QuestionHello!! My name is Denise and I have found you as a completely amazing, intelligent, and extremely brave person. Knowing that you are one of the few who would dare to do this is, is extremely amazing, and I truly support you. I believe also in morphology as the backbone in Biology, mostly in the study of medicine. But is just outstandingly awesome to know about someone like you who is not horrify by Death. Instead, is looked as a way of life, and that's how it is. Thank you for doing what you do Answer

Thank you!

On a personal level, morphology, anatomy, and doing these dissections irreversibly changed my outlook on life.

Life has this je ne sais quoi, this quality that immediately departs with death, so much so that dead things don’t feel alive, and feel as though they have never been alive. 

Beneath my hands, the muscle and bone, that I carved away were the same materials that made me. As the scalpel blade whittles away chips of cartilage, like brittle pine, it’s hard to visualize these tattered remains as once having been a life……with joy and conflict, and light no different from any of us.

And when life is gone; its inner workings laid bare, there is no ghost in the machine, no entrails parted to reveal some great and shining secret hidden inside.

All along, they were nothing more assemblages of muscle and bone……..in the same way that we are…….and will be. 

Life is precious, fragile, impossibly perfect and shockingly miraculous…….. and there’s no time to waste.

:)

Also… look at how amazing this is !!!!
