To human beings, all pigs look alike. Therefore, people seldom have unnecessary concerns. "How would pigs distinguish each other?" There is no need to think about this. Pigs differentiate each other well. Reversely, to pigs, all human beings look alike. Reversely, pigs may have concerns about how we as people distinguish each other. Human beings pay attention to other human beings, and pigs pay attention to other pigs. This is the reason behind how we are able to distinguish each other. This is the summary of this part. "If you pay attention, you can distinguish them."

This is a conversation between a patient and a doctor in a hospital. "I received medical treatment from you a month ago, do you remember me?" "Well, we have so many patients." This doctor says right after he looks at patient's radiograph. "Ah, I remember. You came because of this illness." Doctors cannot remember patients by their faces, but they remember their radiographs. This is because doctors paid attention to radiographs, not faces. Even funnier things happen in Department of urology. An urologist remembers the patients by the patient's male external genitalia. "I did this treatment here." This is because they paid close attention to the male external genitalia.

Just like how all people have different looks, the cutaneous vein of dorsum of hand are all different. Let's say people look at dorsum of hand when they meet. Say people look at each other's dorsum of hand and hang out. Then when they meet, they can distinguish people by their dorsum of hand.

We use the term spitting image to say that the members of a family look alike. In fact, not only the outer appearance but even the inner organs look similar among family members. Let's say an anatomist researched countless bones. Then, by just looking at the bones, he can find out that a group of bones belong to a single family.

We can distinguish Caucasians, Blacks, and East Asians easily. Also, we can approximately distinguish people by their nationalities. Most Europeans cannot distinguish Korean, Chinese, and Japanese but we can. However, we cannot distinguish British, French, and German while they can. This difference comes from differences of having the chances to look closely at other people of specific nationalities. Let's say there is an anatomist who dissected lots of bodies and hearts of people of different nationalities. Through his experiences, he can easily distinguish the race by looking at the heart, and even may be able to distinguish the ethnic group. Like this, inner parts of human beings differ per each races and ethnic groups.

Korean doctors treat Korean patients so we should know how a Korean's inner part looks like. Therefore, anatomists diligently dissect cadavers to prepare data.

Hamburger is a type of fast food that corporations sell in many different nations. These fast foods taste alike no matter where you eat it. Therefore, I feel the taste of my hometown when eating fast food overseas. On the contrary, Chinese food differs in taste in every nation. This is like how you can eat a Chinese-Korean noodle only in Korea. When Koreans eat Chinese food in China, some like it since it is exotic, while some do not.

Most of medical researches conducted in Korea are like fast food. This means that researches do not possess Korean's features in them, especially research conducted on animals. However, some researches are like Chinese foods. A good example of this is anatomy research that tries to find Korean's characteristics. Just like how we eat fast food and Chinese food, it is desirable to conduct research both ways.

If you take a close look at Koreans, you can find out characteristics of Koreans. You can research Koreans and find out Korean's characteristics, but you should not look down on foreigners or multicultural families. All races and ethnic groups are different. There are no wrong races or wrong ethnic groups.
