It is interesting to note that this fact is still doubted by some experts, an incorrect assumption perhaps based on the impression that Confucian beliefs did not permit postmortem autopsy (Veith: 1949; Huard and Wong: 1968). However, it is likely that this practice was in vogue long before the time of Kong Fuzi (551-479 BCE), and was actually still in practice during his lifetime. In later times autopsies may have been prohibited during some dynasties, but this happened several hundred years after the initial studies noted in the Neijing.

Features related to node locations are relatively consistent between individuals, with only rare exceptions . The only differences have to do with size. A tall person, for example, will have longer leg and arm bones than a small or short individual. But the number of nodes located on the extremities is the same for each person, although there will be a variation in the relative spacing of these sites. By using a relative inch measurement, based on some anatomical feature in each individual, then distances and lengths have standard values.

To understand this way of thinking one only has to imagine the problems that would be involved in adding more information to the Dao De jing of Laozi. Even today, many devotees of Chinese medicine consider every word in the Neijing to be absolutely correct. The Neijing covers anatomy, physiology, pathology, medicine, diagnostic techniques (including pulse diagnosis), treatment modalities, herbal medicine, and needling therapy. For this reason it is sometimes called the Classic on Internal Medicine.
