Very interesting thread.
I was searching for stuff like mesentery, sinews etc recently, because I was reading the suttas about contemplating the body and I didn't know what these things really looked like.
I nearly heaved when I saw some of the pics!
I also attended the very good 'Death' exhibition currently showing at the Wellcome Collection in London (which I recommend to anyone in the UK). It has a model of a rotting corpse and you can see all the gory bits. Jaundiced skin, intestines bleeding, bone marrow etc.
I realised however that I was actually experiencing full-on aversion to the body, which I hope will eventually fade and I can develop equanimity.
