The Body of the Many is the eighth and penultimate level explored in System Shock 2. Once the Soldier enters the Body using Rickenbacker's Escape Pod, there is no going back.

It is a huge alien organism, complete with internal organs and digestive system. The Body is shown on ship sensors having wrapped itself around the two ships, it is also partially present inside them, like on Hydroponics. Numerous Many creatures live within it, acting as defensive organisms akin to white blood cells.

In order to annihilate the Body of the Many you'll have to destroy several nerve clusters (which allow you to pass through the sphincters which divide one portion of the Body from another). Once you arrive at the Brain chamber you'll first have to destroy the floating defense nodes which psionically protect the Brain, and then eradicate the Brain itself and escape.
