    Humans are known as Homo sapiens, which in Latin means “knowing man” or “wise man” and originated about 200,000 years ago in their modern form in Africa. It is most likely you yourself are a human. Humans have a wide variety of behavior, both culturally and otherwise. Humans are known for their self-awareness, rationality, and sapience, which supposedly distinguishes them from other life forms.

    Humans are us, modern man. Without retreading ground from the above comment, humans have become the dominant species on the planet because of our intellect, using it to overcome our lacking in strength or speed as compared to other animals in the world. We seem to be the only living things on this planet that has a concept of our own mortality, and that there is more out there beyond this planet. We also are are able to change our surrounding environment to adapt to us, rather than the other way around, by being able to construct great things that have lead us into the modern age. We also appear to be the only species that have ideas about spirituality, whether through philosophy or religion. We also exhibit complex emotions and behaviors beyond the primal basic needs of most living things: the need to nourish one’s self, the need for self-preservation, and the need to continue the species through procreation.
