This section explores the idea that there are sections of your head and body that can be exposed while you live on unconcerned. Better still, you have teams of tiny technicians at work in different departments to keep you going. The illustrations above range from classics of the anatomical book, and a phrenological head to plates from children's encyclopedias of the 1930's and The Dandy Comic's Numskulls. It is not just human beings who are capable of revealing the Mechanics , but also chickens laying eggs.
