General remarks on work: scripts for names of the donor are not clear enough.

We cannot control anything in our bodies. We don''t want to get old even though we don''t want it. We will die, even though we don''t want to. There is nothing permanent, it is changing all the time like the water continuously flowing in the river. Also our bodies are like a city. There are people living in the city. If there are people, there need to have headmen asking people to do this and that, keeping them busy all the time.
