Your body is a system which functions because of the heart which pumps oxygen rich blood through a complicated circulatory system. It connects to everything in the body, most importantly the brain, where YOU are stored. Blood cells, bacteria, germs of all types, and a seemingly infinite number of microscopic civilizations are fed by this circulatory system. They survive and interact with this system and share its supply of oxygen rich blood. Entire ecosystems rely on the work the heart puts forward.
Cut the heart out. Starvation, famine, rivers run dry, crime, murder. No life for miles. The stronger hurt the weaker for survival. The stronger become the weak, being the only survivors.
One blood cell hasn’t left home in a week crying because he got dumped and has no idea any of this has happened. HE is heartbreak!
