From From the Trees to the Stars

We are more than simply a biological manifestation, the species Homo Sapiens Sapiens, the result of millions of years of Evolution on Earth

We are also the overlapping Organisations of people that have emerged over the millenia: family, tribe, village, city, country, religion, company.

All the recorded, spoken or otherwise expressed Languages, used to store and transmit Information from person to person, across distances and time form another part.

And language allows us to also include the sum total of all Knowledge; recorded and remembered History, Science, Philosophy, Art and Belief under the umbrella of humanity.

Finally, the Technology we've invented, first to facilitate our Survival, subsequently to improve our quality of life and increasingly, to indulge our desires.
