The best resource I've found for an in-depth explanation of the interconnected structures of organic objects(especially the human body) is in Ted Seth Jacobs' "Dictionary of Human Form". It just so happens that I was reading it last night.
Do you know where to get this book Stephen? I looked for it on Amazon and couldn't find it. I have Jacobs' book on light and really enjoyed it.
Here's the website: http://www.thedictionaryofhumanform.com/ The ordering process may be a bit unusual but it's legit. It's like a medical text book(in breadth and price) but one of a kind.
Thanks for your comments!
