Amazing night in Vancouver
Last night I went into Vancouver with my sister and her friends to the Telus World of Science to see the Body Worlds Exhibit. It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen, not disgusting or wrong or anything at all! They had everything there, a lot of bodies in different poses. You saw everything the human body has, skin, muscles, tissues, organs, bones, some of the bodies still had body hair, their eyebrows, eye lashes, hair on their scalp, finger and toenails.
Everything was left intact including male and female genitals, and some bodies were cut up in way so you could see inside. One was sliced in halves like a loaf of bread, and another was cut in half so she seemed like she was 2 people, there was even a woman 5 months pregnant and you could see the baby inside her, I also saw a 4 week old fetus all the way up to a 6 month one. There were bones, full skeletons, a full nervous system...Everything was displayed, nothing was left out.
I learned a lot there and I think it's a pretty neat idea, and ALL these people donated their bodies to science, they wanted this to happen, so they're not being exploited. You could see copies of the paperwork they signed giving permission for donating their bodies. Some people might think this is disgusting, but I think that's just dismissing reality. The poses are a bit odd I guess...But I'd rather it be like that than the whole exhibit being set up like a tomb.
Has anyone else ever been to this exhibit? It moves a lot and this is the second time it's been to Vancouver, but only my first time going.
