Why are we so fragile, yet so powerful?
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, concluding that everything has dual nature......for instance:
1-The human body can survive freezing cold and boiling hot temperatures
2-If we lose one of our sense the others become stronger
3-When trauma is caused to bone, it is rebuilt stronger
4-When you are cut or injure yourself, the body repairs the cut or injured area via the clotting mechanism, and promotion of new growth.
5-The body compensates when you get cold by shivering and delivering more fat to be burned in order to produce heat, and by sweating, to cool off the body and keeping it in homoeostasis(The ability or tendency of an organism or cell to maintain internal equilibrium by adjusting its physiological processes).
6-During trauma to the body, the body compensates by shutting down blood supply to the non vital organs and constricting its blood vessels, in order to keep vital organs functioning.
Now lets look at some negative aspects,you could die tomorrow just as easily.
Your body could be crushed in a car accident. It could accidentally fall down a flight of stairs. It could be shot by a stray or intentional bullet. It could slip into a swimming pool or pond and drown. It could be struck by lightning. It could be trapped in a burning building. It could be poisoned either accidentally or intentionally. It could have a heart attack or an aneurism. It could be blown up by a suicide bomber.... The list is nearly endless. Thousands of human bodies die every day in accidents like these.
So why this dual nature folks???
