The sun is also an external tool.

This is wh I think we need more nuance here.

It might depend on whether a hollow inside the lung is judged as a lung
that is defective in a way we can't see without a knife, or the hole is
a mum that we could be able to see ourselves if the ourside of the lung
weren't in the way.

But in either case, I still csn't articulste what seems to me to be
a obvious difference.

Tir'u baTov!
