Being human is cool because we have the mental capacity to analyze our own perspective of existence and adjust our values according to divine will. We can think beyond the basic needs of survival and contemplate what it means to be aligned with ultimate good. We can see a spider in our house, feel shock, then calm ourselves down and think, “How can I respect this life? How can I manage the presence of this being in what I have claimed as my territory while respecting the purpose that it serves in the ecosystem and its right to be alive?” I think these kinds of questions are part of the challenge of the human condition and the fact that we have the opportunity to transcend it is really wild.
