What Does It Mean To Be Human? | TNTM – YouTube

What makes us human: art!

We have evolved to create and to appreciate art.

After all, this blog gives me the opportunity to curate material I find, to photograph, write, and to explore. And I play guitar and I am a storyteller. All of this is creative artistry and an important piece of who I am.

That is an important thing to remember.

Many of us find creativity expression central to ourselves. Natural selection would not result in the need for creative expression if there is no survival value in it. So… art must have survival benefits as we evolved physically and culturally. Presumably, artists are attractive mates and supportive partners. I find that encouraging.
