Yes, there are many other aspects of being human that are full of merit, and note worthy of praise. Art and science, agriculture and cooking, architecture and engineering, woodworking and ceramics, medicine and midwifery, pantomime and puppeteering… All the things we are proud of as humans originate from the seemingly basic ability we have to understand how things work… thanks to our big human brains. Being a human with the ability to learn and understand how things work is such a magnificent super power that it is constantly amazing us with new wonders of invention and ingenuity. We have such capacity to think and to do… to learn and to create… to imagine and to build… With a brain like that… That there is nothing humans can’t do. There is of course that other rest of our brain.
