One could argue that the human form is the most incredible masterpiece ever created. Each is exquisite and unique.  

Our bodies are both what link us together, and what separates us from each other. Every thing we experience in life is through our bodies in some way. In order to interpret new experiences, we relate back to our bodies as a touchstone for our understanding the world. The more we are disconnected with our bodies the more we rely on society to tell us how we feel and what we want.
