Those are desiccated bodies, not skeletons. They have a skeleton inside them, though.
The world is even spookier than that. You, your consciousness is like the child who is given a wheel that is not actually wired into the system, and believes they control the vehicle. Your conscious mind is a couple steps behind your actual decision making. You are basically there to rationalize why you decided a certain way.Have any of you ever taken psychedelic drugs and had the realization of how little control over our bodies and minds we have? Our conscious mind is like the driver of a car, you have control in the sense that you can tell it where to go and how to get there, but at any moment the tire might pop or the engine could lock up because you haven't changed the oil in a while. The skeleton is just the tip of the iceberg, think about every other system in the body and how it operates like a fine tuned machine to give life and energy It's an amazing thing that it ever came into existence in the first place; one small rock out of place in the universe and we would have been destroyed before we could ever get to our feet. Our tentacle-like fingers outstretched from our arms are the only thing that gives our conscious mind purpose, without them we could think of infinite things but could never use our tools to effect change in the world around us.
