I think its exploration. We want to see what is on the other side of the ocean or mountains, just to see what is there. Animals may travel, but they do it to follow the food or for the weather.

We are made in the image of God and have an eternal soul. Please read the New Testament for more information. I suggest starting with the Gospel of John.

"REALLY"? Man in God's Image and likeness, with soul-realization potential unto immortal Being in the One. Otherwise, post-Edenically, man is a "featherless biped." (fb)
If one is analyzing in the fb realm, then mankind or a kind of man of atomic dust, Adam, has more language than other species, more literature, more music, more buildings, etc.--many essential axes, but lesser similars are to be found among other fb and even other groups.

Plants possess a vegetative soul which is defined by the ability to grow and reproduce. Animals have a sensitive soul, which includes the features of the vegetative soul as well as mobility and sensation. Humans have a rational soul, which includes all of the features of the animal soul as well as thought and reflection.

We are the only animals that use "authority".
The evolution of which can be seen and described as
1) Darwinian biologic behaviour from it's origin in genes & the genome
through to the general biological behaviour under "fight of flee".
2) Objective (authoritative or evolutionary) Knowledge via philosophy ;
where It's Origin^ is behaviour since Authoritative records began^^
to present "learning from human mistakes"*.
This is a better "Reset of known Evolutionary behaviour" and can also
be known as resetting "known environmental behaviour" too.
2a) Tentatively described as Intelligent (environment evolving) design
over previous "Darwinian Selection theory".
The theory is a design of better, more open and freely objective
behaviour through human authority and "sustainability".
^ Origin starting with the Ancient Peripatetic Greeks
^^ Any and all authoritative records past.
* Reflecting BACK through such PAST human mistakes.. also
projecting FORWARD to most likely authoritative, objective
mistakes. (Environmental + behavioural etcetera)**
** One behavioural mistake answered here previously.is the one
of continuing "Space Travel". And my insistence that such endeavours
are A MISTAKE...
primarily a mistake known as "a SEARCH for-other-Life" usually in
conjunction with the explanation of searching for A BETTER (home) ENVIRONMENT.
The mistake is of course one of, Who-is-to-say that we wouldn't make
THE SAME Mistakes on a "better place or planet" AGAIN...?
(especially as we haven't SOLVED OUR OWN here on Earth..).
"Authoritative Open Mistakes" therefore of huge implications for
human culture et al.Source(s): Objective Philosophy knowledge
