    Default what is the one thing humans do and animals can't? Guess...I bet you can't

    Well can you guess the one thing animals can't do that humans can on a fundamental level? IT's the one single thing that separates humans from animals.

    Well yeah that's one thing but even before we had words there was one thing we did that animals couldn't do...some animals can communicate.

    Yes...but all of those things are predicated on this one thing that humans can do which animals can't...it's the first thing that a human ever did different from an animal historically speaking in terms of technology.

    close but not quite...almost there...check the above for more clues, because some animals may be able to abstract a little bit...but this one thing humans did gave rise to technology and all the main differences we see today. It's so simple that when I read it I couldn't believe that I never knew it.

    Imagination? Hah I don't know.

    Make stories?
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist
