The human body is made of many different components. These include bones, muscle tissue, blood, water and gases such as oxygen and hydrogen. The body is one of the most complex machines ever made as it is kept in working order by a series of vital organs including the heart, lungs, kidneys, bowels and brain. Without all these components, the body may not be able to function at its full capability.
Each day a human being will breathe in a number of different gases from the natural environment. Part of these essential gases will include oxygen. This will be breathed in through the lungs and then passed around the body through the blood stream. The heart pumps the blood to different muscles and organs at an incredibly fast rate. It is the oxygen that helps the muscles and body move.
The skeleton is what gives the body its shape and what protects the vital organs. Without bones or a skeleton, the human body would just be a big lump of fat and muscles. We would be unable to move and would be at risk of serious diseases and even death. We would probably even be unable to keep breathing ourselves as there would be no rib cage to protect the lungs.
The skin is often regarded as one of the biggest and most important organs in the body. It covers the whole surface area keeping the bones, muscles and vital organs safe. The pores on the skin are what help the body from overheating and drying out.

The human body seems almost unimpressive, the elements that compose it are all present in the earth's day dry dust, and every one of them is found today in sores of ordinary objects. But in the human body, they are combined in so many different ways that a human being is actually made up of thousands upon thousands of complex chemicals compounds. The main substance, accounting for 70 to 85 percent of the water. Is nothing more unusual than water, but many of the other compounds in the human body do not exist at all, in the non-living world.

After water the most abundant substances in the body are proteins, making up to 10 to 20 percent of the whole. Then come inorganic salts, lipids, carbohydrates, and the wondrous nucleic acids. There are two nucleic acids: DNA, which contains the master plan for building the human body, and RNA, which enables the body to follow those plans. In the human body, there are four organizational levels.

The smallest living units are the cells. Some 75 to 100 million millions of them falling in to more than 100 different types. Similar cells, along with the non-living material, matrix, in which they are embedded, are grouped to from tissues. Each kind designed to from carry out specific function. Most of the all is fact that the body is not just a static jumble of chemicals but a dynamic, highly organized, marvelously integrated lining organism. And besides all that, it reproduces and so ensures the continuity of human life.

Our entire body is made of cells. Which are made of molecules, which are made of atoms, which are made of protons, neutrons and electrons, which are made of quarks... Which are made of strings? (no proof yet though)...

The elements. Wow. We are walking rocks. Hah. I think science can indeed explain our mood and behaviour. For sure. As for afterlife, there is nothing more. Surely something else will be born and it will play the animation again. Life is, I guess dictated by which elements we're made of and the chemicals we eat/breathe. I wonder what life elsewhere in the universe would be like since there will be more/less elements. We're freaks of nature for sure.
Gravity and temperature I believe also influence the developmental process. There are physics happening in the universe that humans can't reach or ever comprehend. Beasts and structures that have risen and fallen, billions probably trillions of years apart, in time and space.

The human body is the most complex structure in the world today. We all take our bodies for granted but we do not now what truly our bodies are capable of, in a sense we are able to perfom things that would seem unusual to the normal everyday person for example creating dynamite to blow things up or fighting each other with weapons that were created for the destruction of our exsistence. This demonstrates that were still have the basic animal instict that hepls as survive.

I don't know I was going to ask the same thing I think maybe their made of atoms that what I heard but am not sure

Mainly water and elements. Can scientists explain the life inside of us,
our personality, emotions, intellect etc if we are just a lump of water and
elements. Can scientists explain where that life goes when the heart stops
beating, I don't think so.
