Body

A body is the physical representation of a human or animal. The term is used in connection with health issues, appearance, the distinction between body and soul, and for a dead body, also called a corpse (human) or carcass (animal).

A body is also a held-together collection or group of physical objects or abstract ideas, and in particular an organisation. The whole is of more than the sum of the individual members[?]. (Note the double meaning of the word member.)
