I've heard that our genetic code is 1.54% different than a chimpanzee. Humans are different because our ability to think abstractly. Our able to
conceive ideas to enhance our enviroment to suit us. Animals cannot think abstractly to conceive ideas such as that. Although that is not a true
statement I just made because a few birds, chimpanzee's, and gorrilla's are able to use tools to get food and such, kinda like us, one hundred
thousand years ago. Maybe our rate of mental evolution is just rapid comparative to their's? The professor's never returned my letter about this,
probably thought I was a quack.
