What Makes Us Special?

Arts and Sciences

Even tiny microbial life forms fight for survival, individually and as armies.

When we kill, wage war, defend territories or fight for family and possessions, we aren’t doing anything more than bugs do.

So, what makes us special?

Not societies. Not haves and have nots. Not tradition. Not sex. Not even love songs. These are things that were part of life millions of years before hominids appeared on earth.

Nearly all life forms have mating calls. It is even possible that microbes encourage reproductive activity with song. We just can’t hear them, yet.

Sciences and the Arts

Our ability to record what we have learned so future generations can advance their knowledge, talents and skills.

We have even enhanced the methods we use to record and present what we know.

We have the means to make Earth a garden of Eden, but we glorify tiny brained behaviors like war and domination instead. We have the tools we need to improve ourselves in the vast stores of historical records available at the tap of a fingertip.

What a waste of our ability to create harmony.
