THE EVOLUTION OF THE HUMAN BODY
In the womb, there's a shape which we are and can move. This shape develops like a 5 legged starfish, and every one of the 5 ends is hard (bony) and sensitive. Both the sensitivity and the hardness make good sense, because that's where our ancestors kept bumping into things.
As we evolved, we started moving in one direction and collected all the main sensors at one of the ends (the end which got the most bumps), with the other four ends doing what the main-sensor end told them .. and so we developed arms and legs.
It is interesting to realise that every one of the 5 ends can "feel, hold and do things". The hands and feet, feel, hold and do things with objects; and the mind feels (recognises, realises) holds (remembers) and does things with thoughts.
