I love this whole speculation. I would like to take it further and say that what a human is is not stability, balance and some constant struggle for wholeness and happiness. I claim we don't want happiness and that catastrophe is what animates us and through our constant struggle to know what 'reality' is and failing we come to subjectivity. And that what makes us human and not animal is that an animal will not ruin a good thing for an idea ... which is precisely what the definition of a human is. We get stuck on an idea and our brain, like a virus (Hitchens said it I believe) can kill our bodies for it. Like falling in love. None of this is a critique but merely a supplement to a tremendously important discussion ! Thank you.
