    We are victims of the post-Enlightenment view that the world functions like a sophisticated machine, to be understood like a textbook engineering problem and run by wonks. In other words, like a home appliance, not like the human body.   The human body collectively is the most complex machine known to man, Like any machine, the human body is made of different body parts situated in some particular way with the goal of performing some function. This list of human body parts includes common anatomical divisions and the body parts that compose those divisions.

    Humans have invented six devices that combine to make work easier. These six simple machines are the wheel and axle, the lever, the inclined plane, the pulley, the screw and the wedge. Each of the three types of levers can be found in the human body. In each type of lever, notice where the fulcrum is located compared to the effort and the load. In your body, the effort is the force that your muscles apply to the lever. The load is the weight that resists the pull of your muscles. First Class Lever.
