SYSTEMS OF THE HUMAN BODY (Drawing is Vitruvian Man by Leonardo Di Vinci)
When my daughter, Karmen, had her first dose of biology, I explained an organism to her this way. Cells make up Tissues - Tissues make up Organs - Organs make up Systems and Systems make a Karmenism (organism).
We are greater than the sum of our parts. i.e. - Wholistic or Holistic healthcare. Spread your arms like Vitruvian Man and this is your aura, your energy, your space, your electro-magnetic field that encompasses your mind, your physical body and the spirit within you. Go ahead spread your arms and think about who you allow to come into that space and how close you allow it to get to others.

Systems make up a composite whole. A system is an organized grouping of related structures or parts of the body. These structures or groups are in fact related to each other and perform certain functions together.
A system is also a group of cells or aggregations of cells that perform a particular function such as the respiratory system, the cardiovascular system, the central nervous system and the mononuclear phagocyte system. (Phagocytes are cells that eat trash or other cells. They are like pac-man.)
