This Could Be the First Animal to Live Entirely Inside a Computer. Intension designs - the geometry of anatomy. Among clinicians and bodyworkers today, there appears to be a great deal of interest in the concept of tensegrity as it applies to living forms, but much confusion as well.

intension designs - the geometry of anatomy

In some circles it seems to be the flavour of the decade but what are they talking about? What exactly is a tensegrity? Is it a useful scientific description and explanation for anatomical function? Or is it just a metaphor for the intuitive feeling that bodies behave as whole systems held in connective tension? If the latter, it’s as good or better than any other analogy and the definition can remain vague. Visible Human Project. Cryosection through the head of a human male.

Visible Human Project

A male and a female cadaver were cut into thin slices which were then photographed and digitized. The project is run by the U.S. The visible human project (HQ) The National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project.

Overview The Visible Human Project® is an outgrowth of the NLM's 1986 Long-Range Plan.

The National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project

It is the creation of complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of the normal male and female human bodies. Acquisition of transverse CT, MR and cryosection images of representative male and female cadavers has been completed. The male was sectioned at one millimeter intervals, the female at one-third of a millimeter intervals. The long-term goal of the Visible Human Project® is to produce a system of knowledge structures that will transparently link visual knowledge forms to symbolic knowledge formats such as the names of body parts. The National Library of Medicine thanks the men and the women who will their body to science, thereby enabling medical research and development. Further Information.

Vida de San Juan de la Cruz. San Juan de la Cruz, según un retrato anónimo del siglo XVII.

Vida de San Juan de la Cruz

La Vida de San Juan de la Cruz es una parte destacada de las materias sanjuanistas que con el estudio de su doctrina mística, el análisis y disfrute de su poesía, la interpretación simbólica de su obra y la caracterización de su psicología conforman los temas principales de interés sobre San Juan de la Cruz. A modo de introducción se puede decir, que fue un religioso español del siglo XVI, perteneciente a la Orden de Nuestra Señora del Monte Carmelo, a cuya reforma dedicó su vida y para lo cual escribió varias poesías y tratados espirituales. Las fuentes sobre San Juan de la Cruz son ricas y variadas, pues ya en vida removió muchas conciencias, dejando impresiones duraderas en aquellos que le conocieron. El interés que despertó en su tiempo hizo que al poco de morir se redactasen varias biografías, y se tomase declaración a numerosos testigos. Es pues una vida documentada, que puede ser descrita con gran realismo.

Hypertext Table of Contents. Roget's Thesaurus. The name "Roget" is trademarked in parts of the world, such as the United Kingdom.[3] By itself, it is not protected in the United States of America, where use of the name "Roget" in the title of a thesaurus does not necessarily indicate any relationship to Dr.

Roget's Thesaurus

Roget; it has come to be seen as a generic thesaurus name,[4] like "Webster" for dictionaries. Roget described his thesaurus in the foreword to the first edition: It is now nearly fifty years since I first projected a system of verbal classification similar to that on which the present work is founded. Conceiving that such a compilation might help to supply my own deficiencies, I had, in the year 1805, completed a classed catalogue of words on a small scale, but on the same principle, and nearly in the same form, as the Thesaurus now published.[5] File:John of the Cross crucifixion sketch.jpg. Christ of Saint John of the Cross. Christ of Saint John of the Cross is a painting by Salvador Dalí made in 1951.

Christ of Saint John of the Cross

It depicts Jesus Christ on the cross in a darkened sky floating over a body of water complete with a boat and fishermen. Although it is a depiction of the crucifixion, it is devoid of nails, blood, and a crown of thorns, because, according to Dalí, he was convinced by a dream that these features would mar his depiction of Christ. Also in a dream, the importance of depicting Christ in the extreme angle evident in the painting was revealed to him. Title[edit] Peter Mark Roget. Peter Mark Roget FRS (/roʊˈʒeɪ/; 18 January 1779 – 12 September 1869) was a British physician, natural theologian and lexicographer.

He is best known for publishing, in 1852, the Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases (Roget's Thesaurus), a classified collection of related words. Biography[edit] Roget plaque, Edinburgh University Roget retired from professional life in 1840 and about 1848 began preparing for publication the one work that was to perpetuate his memory. Visual thesaurus. Plumb design's visual Thesaurus means "treasure house" in Latin and so it seems apt that the origins of this handy writer's tool lie some two hundred years in the past, in the prison cell of an Englishman named Peter Mark Roget (1779-1869) to be more precise.

His predicament gives rise to the intriguing image of an unlucky burglar/writer patiently plotting his heist for when he breaks out of his jail (writer's) block unknowing that he is, like all of us, a prisoner of language and can never escape. However, the truth is that for political reasons, Roget--a quiet and honest student--was unfairly thrown into prison for a year. To pass the time and to keep his wits he turned his philosophically inclined mind to constructing a list of one thousand terms to use as a "repertory" of words embodying ideas. After his release he went on to become a successful physician and scholar and continued to add words and phrases to his list throughout his long life. Chapter 6: Maps.
