The Uniqueness of Us

While we share common traits related with the concept of thought with other life forms, such as retrieving and storing information, necessary for existence for many, here's the big difference:

We, as humans, utilize the information we possess in an isolated way. We apply our knowledge in order to reason. In other words, we have the ability to explain and justify our actions and decisions and actions on a regular basis. This rare ability is utilized by us to solve problems, regardless of thier complexity.

So we are capable of discovering what we think, but are largely unclear on the thought processes involved with the ability to think. So these processes will be examined in future posts, with the hope that the examinations have some degree of accuracy.
