Today I came across an interesting thought: what sets humans apart from animals? Is it intelligence, thinking, or the power of choice? After much contemplation, I realized that what truly distinguishes us is our ability to ask “why”.
As long as a human is asking why, they are still human. If they stop asking, they have given up and stopped being human. This thought is both profound and intriguing.
The pursuit of knowledge and the desire to understand the world around us is what drives us forward as a species. It’s what pushes us to innovate, create, and explore. Without this sense of curiosity and questioning, we would simply be like any other animal, content with what we have and unable to imagine anything more.
In my opinion, this is what makes us truly unique and special. So next time you find yourself asking why, remember that it’s what separates you from the rest of the animal kingdom.
So, embrace your curious nature and never stop asking why. It’s what makes us human.
