Exhibit of preserved bodies THE UNIVERSE WITHIN is an educational exhibit comprised of actual human bodies and organs that have been preserved using a method known as plastination. THE UNIVERSE WITHIN literally as well as figuratively goes "under the skin,” exposing the complexity of the human body and allowing the general public a look at what normally only doctors and scientists are allowed to see first-hand. The goal of THE UNIVERSE WITHIN is that visitors leave with a deeper understanding of the body’s form and function and a stronger appreciation for staying fit and healthy.

A tip on educating yourself! Every week take two hours to remind yourself that you are not a total idiot devoted only to the momentary pursuits.

We were wondering what kind of education he had, and came across his personal library which is now held in Washington DC. He was an avid reader--not ...
