When we perceive the "body," we often associate the "body" with "what's in the clothes," rather than the naked "flesh." The significance of the body view is that we wrap ourselves in civilization, especially in civilization's modernity. We choose some modern cultural symbols to organize an external "body" image, and then combine the concept of this image with the "body" of the person. A hairstyle, a dress, a pair of leather boots, these symbols of modernity let us "have a body" or "somatization", I use the whole body of this dress to intervene in the world outside our main body (physical). This means that when we talk about the "body," about a specific person, we should appropriately abandon "unrealistic" topics such as sex and gender, the chronization of the body, and pay more attention to the cultural modernity that constitutes our real body, to the present moment of civilization based on the body. This is the meaning of "standing," an ongoing identity, an account of a certain basic state of man.
