Human Development is Beautiful

Using art and technology, Alexander Tsiaras visualizes the unseen human body in the TED Talk below.
"Even though I'm a mathematician, I look at this with marvel: How do these instruction sets not make these mistakes as they build what is us?" 

The human body and its development is such an incredible thing. This visual depiction blew my mind. It's amazing how the woman's body is built to carry another life form until it's ready to enter this world. The part of the video where it showed child birth, and the baby wriggling though the hip bones... wow! 

I really enjoy this video. Actually seeing how we develop and getting a window into this unseen world somehow recentered me today. Going back to where it all started - where all the complexities within us built themselves and naturally took their course - that was calming. All of our inner conflicts and intricacies still have an innate instruction manual and develop/release when the time is right. We must learn to still trust our bodies and our intuitions - because they have always been such are such powerful, self-aware machines.
