Finally there is a description of the heart, lungs, and digestive system. This all shows the body as the most perfect of all machines. But then the author reminds us that "we are more than just machines...we love and want to be loved...and have pity...and know why...and dream...and have ideals and faith. These gifts of the spirt set man above all other creatures."
