I think one thing that separates us from animals is simply our anatomy. We're upright walking, which means that two of our limbs are always free to
do some job, and we have opposable thumbs, which allows us to create and use tools. I think the last two components of being human are imagination,
and awareness. Awareness meaning the ability to contemplate ones' self and surroundings. Being able to ask questions like "Who am I?" and "Why am
I?". Those questions spark the imagination, and so we write stories, we create art and music, we build culture.
