This is the radiologist’s version of photocopying your face at work.

These MRI scans show what an artichoke, a head of broccoli, and the human brain look like on the inside. Magnetic resonance imaging scanners, or MRIs for short, let us see internal anatomy at high resolution. When we put a set of MRI images in sequence, we get crazy pictures like these. Cool, huh?

The Western arrogance of feeling that it has everything to teach others and nothing to learn from them is not just.

The Jeweled Skeletons were originally found in catacombs beneath Rome in 1578, and distributed as replacements under the belief they were Christian martyrs to churches that had lost their saint relics in the Reformation. However, for most, their identities were not known. The receiving churches then spent years covering the revered skeletal strangers with jewels and golden clothing, even filling their eye sockets and sometimes adorning their teeth with finery. Yet when the Enlightenment came around they became a little embarrassing for the sheer amount of money and excess they represented, and many were hidden away or disappeared. Koudounaris tracked down the dead survivors. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]
