Encyclopedia > Corpse

With regard to living things, a body is the integral physical material of an individual, and contrasts with soul, personality and behavior. In some contexts, a superficial element of a body, such as hair may be regarded as not a part of it, even while attached. The same is true of excretable substances, such as stool, both while residing in the body and afterwards. Plants composed of more than one cell are not normally regarded as possessing a body.


"Body" often is used in connection with appearance, health issues and death. The body of a dead person is also called a corpse (human) or cadaver. The dead bodies of vertebrate animals and insects are sometimes called carcasses.


The human body consists of a head, neck, trunk, two arms, two legs and the genitals of the groin, which differ between males and females.


The study of the working of a body is anatomy.


A body is also a held-together collection or group of physical objects or abstract ideas, and in particular an organisation. The whole is of more than the sum of the individual members.


Injury

Injury is damage or harm caused to the structure or function of the body caused by an outside agent or force, which may be physical or chemical.

Exquisite corpse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (854 words)
Exquisite corpse (also known as "exquisite cadaver" or "rotating corpse") is a method by which a collection of words or images are collectively assembled, the result being known as the exquisite corpse or cadavre exquis in French.
The game of exquisite corpse has been adapted to be played using computer graphics, the construction of Surrealist objects, and even an adaptation to architecture has been proposed.
Near the end of the play/film, as the already bizarre story reaches its most surreal point, Hedwig begins reminiscing about all the relationships and events in her life that have made her feel "cut...up into parts", with pieces going to various important people.
