The Emperor is the single greatest human psyker who ever lived. His shattered husk of a body resides on the Golden Throne on Terra, where he receives the sacrifices of hundreds of psychic each day in order to sustain his life. Throughout the centuries, the Emperor's body has withered away even further, leaving a silent corpse that barely holds onto the soul.
