    I was at my doctor's office awhile back sitting in the examination room waiting for the doctor to show-up. While there I noticed on the wall a poster advertising the Body Worlds exhibition here in SLC awhile back.

    If you're not familiar with Body World it's a traveling exhibition of preserved human bodies that are prepared using a technique called plastination to reveal inner anatomical structures (see the pics below for an idea). Basically it's an exhibit of human bodies in various positions with their skin removed revealing all the muscle tissue, some bone, and other features of the human body found just beneath the layers of our skin.

    The poster was kind of creepy to look at but it made me realize all the more that despite our good (or bad) looks, our skin color, hair color and style, our facial features, our ethnicity, our gender, even our religion and politics, we all look about the same underneath it all. We're not so different from each other as we think we are.

    Looking at that poster was sort of an epiphany for me. Something to think about.

    I had a chance to visit this exhibit. We all really enjoyed it and it makes you realize what an amazing machines our bodies really are.

    They showed the museum on Ripley's B.I.O.N. years ago when that show was still being produced and Dean Cain was still at least B list material. Very cool stuff.

    If more people would realize the simple fact we really aren't all that different... maybe we can eliminate some of the idiotic wars. Just a thought.
