Axis Mundi Healing Arts & Divination It’s a curious and essential feature of our bodies that the outside world passes through us in a long, tortuous tube. We may not tend to think of our digestive tracts that way, but it’s true: the contents of our stomachs and intestines aren’t actually in us, not until they pass through the barrier of the gut wall. Naturally, that barrier is a selective one, and not just any old molecule gets through: or such is the theory.
