Human Physiology

  1. Cardiovascular system
    1. Circulates blood around the body via the heart, arteries and veins, delivering oxygen and nutrients to organs and cells and carrying their waste products away.
  2. Digestoexcretory system:
    1. Mechanical and chemical processes that provide nutrients via the mouth, esophagus, stomach and intestines.
    2. Eliminates waste from the body.
  3. Endocrine system:
    1. Provides chemical communications within the body using hormones.
  4. Integumentary-Exocrine system
    1. Skin, hair, nails, sweat and other exocrine glands.
  5. Lymphatic / Immune system:
    1. The system comprising a network of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph.
    2. Defends the body against disease-causing agents.
  6. Musculoskeletal system
    1. Bones supporting the body and its organs.
    2. Enables the body to move using muscles.
  7. Nervous system
    1. Collects and processes information from the senses via nerves and the brain and tells the muscles to contract to cause physical actions.
  8. Reproductive system
    1. The sex organs required for the production of offspring.
  9. Respiratory system
    1. The lungs and the trachea that bring air into the body.
  10. Renal-urinary system:
    1. The system where the kidneys filter blood.

Noble Houses & Clans Research (2016)[edit]

Noble House vs. Clan

  • Noble House - Imperial-recognized (Mostly B or higher social status) AKA [Imperial High (Landed) Nobility] AKA Imperial Nobility of hereditary standing (Moot recognition: peerage)
    • High Landed (old and powerful families)
    • Holiday and/or Birthday List
    • Letter of Enfeoffment
  • Noble Clan - Not-Imperial-recognized (Mostly A or lower social status) AKA [Non-Imperial Nobility] of non-imperial standing (no Moot recognition: no peerage)
    • Ceremonial (service or world-state recognition) (Newer and less powerful families)
    • Honor (promotion for achievement)
    • Holiday and/or Birthday List

Research Patterns (2016)[edit]

  • Minimalism vs. Maximalism
  • Linear vs. non-linear thinking
  • Letter vs. spirit of the law
  • Canon vs. semi-canon
  • Swiss (holes) vs. Cheddar (solid) cheese
  • Comparative vs. Non-comparative
  • Innovative vs. derivative
  • Hard vs. Soft cheese
  • Hard vs. Soft sci-fi (MWM states that it is both and neither)
  • OTU (mostly canon) vs. ATU (possibly semi-canon)
  • Physics (hard) vs. Sociology (soft)
  • Storytelling (broadly entertaining) vs. Engineering (narrowly gearhead)
