Wondering why there's a picture of a jellyfish for a post about our diaphragms? Well, it's because your diaphragm, tucked up inside the base of your ribcage, is shaped like Darth Vader’s helmet  or like a jellyfish. Its primary action is to lift and open your ribs, making space for breath to happen and it does that by moving much like a jellyfish does.
