The Soul

“The ancient Greeks, who performed sacrificial rites on very young and generally prepubertal animals, noted an extensive mass of tissue in the chest above the heart extending for some distance up into the neck and concluded that it must be the seat of the ´soul´.” Miller JAFP, Thymus 1:3-25, 1979
