"My daughter teaches clinical skills to nurses in a very high tech health sciences center. We visited her on the job and toured the various classrooms and simulated hospital wards. It was after hours and the place was populated by a legion of specialized manikins. Under control of an instructor these almost-humans can breathe, blink, bleed, and vomit. Some have a heartbeat and pulses in their extremities.

Although my conscious mind knew that the manikins were just animated puppets, I kept sensing that they were something more. I was feeling very unsettled when we entered a classroom used for teaching anatomy. This skinless model was facing us as we entered, seeming like an alien welcoming us to its home planet. Its musculature was brightly colored for teaching purposes, making for a very striking picture."
