Human beings - what & why..!?

read interesting blog recently "What is Human beings?" intial thoughts - oh my good lord this person needs friends to spend time with..!_) then i realize its very nice complex thought..

what is human?
Contemporary science considers the human being on the basis of two different dimensions of his existence: the biological and the social. Human beings appeared on earth as a result of a long process of development. As biological creatures, they still retain a close genetic connection with the animal world. Man's organism has many features in common with the higher animals. Human got ahead of the mammals thanks to the intensive development and differentiation of the cerebral cortex. human is an integrated unity of the biological, the organismic and the personal, the natural and the social, the inherited and what he acquires during his/her life.

why are we like this?
Everything in the world is conditioned and takes place according to necessity. When we consider not merely objective events that occur in the world but also conscious human activity, the problem of necessity reveals itself in a new aspect: by becoming aware of it we turn necessity into freedom. The thinkers of the ancient world pondered the question of who governed the universe— the gods or destiny? Was the world ruled by reason or by blind necessity? According to Heraclitus, everything depended on destiny, and destiny meant necessity. The essence of destiny was reason, which guided everything.
