No, no. Not those pictures. The pictures you will be seeing are post coitus.
Meet Lennart Nilsson. Lennart is a Swedish photographer and scientist. Lennart specializes in macro-photography on the development of humans in the
womb. In 1965, he was internationally recognized as his photographs of the beginning of human life were featured on the cover of Life magazine. 8
million copies were sold within the first 4 days.
I will do my best to describe each of the pictures below with as much medical accuracy as I can. These pictures are absolutely amazing, and although
I have seen some of them before, I hoped to share the amazing story through photographs and my commentary.
Post coitus, a sperm makes it's way up the Fallopian tube. There are approximately 300 million sperm.
His curiosity peaks when he finds a golden egg and decides to explore further. He sees that all 300 million of his buddies are coming to.
Now, some of his buddies make it there and jump on the golden egg too. Realizing they can work their way into it, the began to race to the center.
He makes it first and wins and is now king of the hill.
8 days later, a bunch of cells have developed into a blastocyst and attaches to the wall of the uterus and become the Human embryo.
Soon, the human embryo's brain begans to develop like a moldy fortune cookie.
The one month old has no skeleton yet, but has a beating heart from just 18 days. Around this time, her father is rubbing the mother's stomach and
whispering "You are going to be amazing, you can be anything you want to be."
At 4 weeks, the little baby is confused about her fathers words. As you can see, the little gal thinks she'll become a frog! So cute. But adding to
the confusion, around this time there was some kind of telepathy coming from the mother to the child during an episode of National Geographic that the
mother was watching........
As you can see, at 5 weeks the face becomes more distinguished with openings for the eyes, nostrils and mouth. This may be due to remembering the
episode of NatGeo, as little one soon realizes that her favorite animals are the camel and hippopotamus. Being so young and indecisive, the little
one decides that she will be a hybrid camelhippo. But then starts to feel neglected as she might not belong.
At just 8 weeks, this feeling of neglect makes her realize that she is on the completely wrong planet. Her mother did of no good comforting her as
she was in the midst of watching Alien and the chestburster scene came on.
But not to worry future mothers, by 16 weeks the little sh*t has it figured out. She is able to use her little hands to feel and explore around.
Her skeleton consists mainly of flexible cartilage with a network of blood vessels visible through the skin.
At 18 weeks, frustration is starting to kick in as hearing develops and she feel claustrophobic. In turn, she finds that by using her feet to kick
the hard areas of her cage, she feels better.
At week 20 she begans to have doubts on whether or not she is human or monkey. The influx of nutrition from banana split cravings and every time she
kicks she hears "oo oo ah ah" is confusing her. In turn, she decides to grow woolly hair known as lanugo and it covers her entire head.
From there she figures it all out and continues to develop into a healthy baby. Soon enough though, she begans dreaming of her memories of her
believing she was from another planet. During this nightmare she begans to act out.
Finally reaching freedom, she attempts her best to run away. Unfortunately all she can do is dream.
Soon enough, she settles in and becomes the cutest little thing. But she feels a bit bad about what she did to her mother. So she sends the mother a
telepathic message saying "You want to get that S.O.B back that did this to you? Let's bleed him through the wallet for the next 18 years, ha ha ha
" And then the cycle repeats through generations.
All joking aside, Lennarts work is fascinating. Seeing how life develops is amazing. Sadly, many of the images he took were from babies that never
lived past birth as they were miscarried or aborted, only to be photographed after.
Hope you enjoyed!!
