What makes us “Human”?

For me, i’d say: The fact that we have a brain. A brain that guides us and allows us to think, analyse things, question things, question our existence and realities, understand, discover, explore, agree, disagree, having opinions, thoughts, ideas, the ability of creation, invention, study, read, write… (Here am not gonna mention stuff about intelligence and learning, because some animals do actually have these qualities. )
Also our bodies or our special shape in general : The shape of our hair, face, eyes, eyebrows, nose, mouth, ears, head, neck, chest, stomach, legs, feet, arms, hands, nails, etc.. And unlike animals and plants, no matter how different we can get, the shape of the ‘human’ doesn’t ever change. This could be related to science, about our genes, number of chromosomes etc… Plus, for example, in animals, you find mammals, reptiles, birds, fish, amphibians, insects..,within plants there are the flowers, the vegetables, the trees, the fruits, etc … , but for us, humans, there’s only ” human beings”.
Also, we can’t forget the following special humane abilities: To laugh, to smile, to speak, and to feel. Am not gonna mention love, because animals also have the ability to love each other, or things, or humans…
But i believe the first and most important thing about humans, that no other creature has or could ever have, is this priceless gift called ” The human mind”.
