Why Humans Are So Lucky?
Bucky Fuller explains in his Operating Manual For Spacship Earth
All universities have been progressively organized for ever finer specialization. Society assumes that specialization is natural, inevitable, and desirable. Yet in observing a little child, we find it is interested in everything and spontaneously apprehends, comprehends, and co-ordinates an ever expanding inventory of experiences. Children are enthusiastic planetarium audiences. Nothing seems to be more prominent about human life than its wanting to understand all and put everything together.
One of humanity’s prime drives is to understand and be understood.
All other living creatures are designed for highly specialized tasks.
