Being Human

I was looking out at lunch and I was surprised. It was people! It took nine months to each of those blobs. But when they start “living”, they can potentially change the fate of the universe. They can be happy or sad, have dreams and nightmares. They can love or hate. They move around. They like to be in company of their own kind. It was just amazing!They have a thing called brain to make them feel they exist and help them make complicated abstractions about their universe. It continually selects changes in its environment that helps its survival, continuously uses those changes to update its memories and continuously retrieves them, all of that in parallel.Their ability to select stimuli is so subtle and tuned for survival by evolution, that they are unable to feel their undergarments until they are told about it!
