humanity

A Quote by Sherrilene on humanity, feelings, and choices

'Living' people don't make excuses for their emotions. They accept that feelings come as part of the human package; they embrace and walk with them on their journey.

A Quote by sam harris on humanity, evolution, nature, and life

Life is a continuous flux. Our nonhuman ancestors bred, generation after generation, and incrementally begat what we now deem to be the species homo sapiens — ourselves.  There is nothing about our ancestral line or about our current biology that dictates how we will evolve in the future. Nothing in the natural order demands that our descendants resemble us in any particular way. Very likely, they will not resemble us. We will almost certainly transform ourselves, likely beyond recognition, in the generations to come.

A Quote by David Bohm on death and humanity

From the point of view of the species, death is part of this whole process.  You could say that species have evolved in such a way that individual members last a certain time.  Perhaps a certain kind of species would be better able to survive if the individuals didn't last too long.  Other kinds could last longer.
