SP12 Notes

Ling Shu Ch. 71, On Evil Visitors, says that when a depletion evil is in the Spleen it remains in the two thighs. Yuen's theory of the Divergent meridians suggests that they store pathogens at the major joints, depleting our resources while they do, which would suggest this is referring to the Spleen/Stomach Divergent.  Jimen Sp-11 could also be a candidate as the text only specifies the thigh.
