I was recently asked to describe myself, it’s such an annoying question, describe yourself, okay, I am human, the male of the species, known taxonomically as Homo sapiens. Anatomically I originated in Africa about 200,000 years ago, give or take a few years, quite good at abstract reasoning, language, introspection and am partial to a bit of problem solving. This unique trait combined with an erect body carriage allows my hands the freedom to manipulate objects to my advantage, and allowed my species to make far greater use of tools than any other living species on planet Earth. Other higher-level thought processes include but are not confined to self-awareness, rationality and sapience, these are thought by other Homo sapiens to be the definitive terms and conditions of what makes a person, what makes me.
I can be a bit of a prick sometimes
