  St. Paul's Description of the Body and Teaching on Purity
Certainly, it is possible to describe the human body, to express its truth with the objectivity characteristic of the natural sciences.
The Pauline description is equally far from Manichaean contempt for the body and from the various manifestations of a naturalistic cult of the body.
In Paul's expressions about the unpresentable parts of the human body, as also about the ones which seem to be weaker or the ones which we think less honourable, we seem to find again the testimony of the same shame that the first human beings, male and female, had experienced after original sin.

 The Description of the Human Body - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Description of the Human Body (La description du corps humain) is an unfinished treatise written in the 1640s by René Descartes.
He believed the power to move the body was wrongly imagined to come from the soul because a corpse has all the organs of a living body but lacks a soul.
He felt we all know what the human body is like because animals have similar bodies and we have all seen them opened up.

 St Paul's description of the body and teaching on purity
The Pauline description in the First Letter to the Corinthians 12:18-25 certainly does not have a “scientific" meaning: it does not present a biological study on the human organism or on human "somatics"; from this point of view it is a simple "pre-scientific" description, moreover a concise one, made up of barely a few sentences.
At the threshold of this man's history there is the experience of shame connected with "discord in the body", with the sense of modesty regarding that body (and particularly those parts of it that somatically determine masculinity and femininity).
However, in the same "description", Paul indicates also the way which (precisely on the basis of the sense of shame) leads to the transformation of this state to the point of gradual victory over that "discord in the body", a victory which can and must take place in man's heart.

Humans, or human beings, are bipedal primates belonging to the mammalian species Homo sapiens (Latin for "wise man" or "knowing man") under the family Hominidae (the great apes).
Humans create complex social structures composed of co-operating and competing groups, ranging in scale from nations to individual families, and social interaction between humans has established a variety of traditions, rituals, ethics, values, social norms, and laws which form the basis of human society.
Humans are also noted for their desire to understand and influence the world around them, seeking to explain and manipulate natural phenomena through science, religion, philosophy and mythology.

 OUR MAGNETIC CHAKRA SYSTEM
The four overlaying etheric human bodies—physical etheric, astral/emotional, mental and soul—connect by way of channels of energy that converge in energy centers or vortexes—the chakras—as their paths form the invisible scaffolding inside of which the physical body is formed.
The human body's subtle vehicles form an aura that is actually observable: various reactions can be detected with instruments such as dowsing rods and pendulums as these react in noticeable ways when held near to one of the body’s chakras or energy centers.
In the human etheric body, each of the seven major centers is comprised of a different number of these so-called petals, increasing in quantity with each center moving up the spinal column.

 Changing Beliefs of the Human Body
The Leverhulme Research Programme "Changing beliefs of the human body: comparative social perspective" is a five-year, cross-disciplinary initiative, based at Cambridge University, which addresses the question of why and how humans change what they believe about the human body.
All human societies hold fundamental conceptualisations of the human body, which underlie concepts of relatedness, gender, and growth and development and which are practised through fields of action as diverse as healihg therapies, etiquette, sexuality, hygiene, nourishment, and funerary rites.
Bodies are thus not only a central topic in understanding any society; they are also one of the few topics for which comparative study of changing beliefs is possible.

 St. Paul's Teaching on the Sanctity and Respect of the Human Body
Further on he said: "On the contrary, the parts of the body which seem to be weaker are indispensable, and those parts of the body which we think less honour able we invest with the greater honour, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, which our more presentable parts do not require.
But God has so composed the body, giving the greater honour to the inferior part, that there may be no discord in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another" (ibid.
Therefore, this Pauline description of the human body in First Corinthians seems to be closely connected with the recommendations of the First Letter to the Thessalonians: "...that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honour " (1 Th 4:4).

Some large part of the credit for the creation of the complexity of the human body must be attributed to the development process.
