"Studying the renal system is like walking into a concert theater. The kidney is the grand hall divided into multiple compartments, then into smaller partitions, with groups of players fielding their kettle drums (glomeruli) and trombones (nephrons) to perform a final outcome - excretion. Unlike the behaviors the daily news reflects, our bodily systems are largely conducted via auto-regulation. Internally we are constantly being repositioned, reassessed and being readied to pivot. Our body is programmed to shift to rectify whatever dissonance occurs so that it can restore harmony. Our behaviors could take a few cues from our cells."
