We’ve lived for a few years now with the provision chain catastrophe, generated by COVID lockdowns and vaccine mandates. So we’re higher geared up than ever to understand how the human physique handles its personal daunting provide chain points — and does so, not like some human beings we are able to consider, with breathtaking effectivity. Techniques engineer Steve Laufmann gives that illuminating metaphor in a quick video, explaining the size of the problem dealing with massive organisms like ourselves as in contrast with single-celled ones. The problem can solely have been solved by clever design:
The issue, as it might take an engineer or doctor to completely acknowledge, is the right way to provide our cells with what they want if these cells don’t have any direct entry to the atmosphere, and on the flip aspect, the right way to rid the cells of poisonous waste generated within the strategy of residing. Proponents of the “poor design” argument, equivalent to evolutionist Nathan Lents, declare that the physique is sloppily constructed. Professor Lents calls it a “panorama of glitches.” Oh, actually, is that so? Laufmann and his co-author, Dr. Howard Glicksman, look at this and different ingenious designs that allow us to outlive from everyday — and second to second — of their new guide, Your Designed Physique.
