As a model of human physiology, the Egyptians were also attracted by the way in which the channels they dug controlled the flow of water from the Nile. To them, there must have been a similar system in operation controlling the flow of body fluids by the pumping power of the Early civilization 23 heart. The human body thus came to be structured on the model of the Nile and its channels, which carried the stream of water, the harnesser of the rage of the Nile, feeding different lakes. This was in turn used to provide water to mould the dry, baked soil to form the wet, dry, moist, warm medium seen as providing the roots with minerals, the organic bricks of human beings (Thorwald 1962,754).

The supremacy of education and knowledge that goes to form a refinely trained mind is the controller of physique, so that once the character is formed, physical training needs only a rough outline (Plato 1974, 166, 403e).
