Hello, Fellow Humans on Spaceship Earth,
This message begins to tell us how we are seen as different by all
other species on Earth. We are seen as not quite ready for life when we
are born, and we are seen as more vulnerable and more dependent on the
good will of others for our very life. This is, indeed, a way in which
we differ from all other beings. I believe it is called secondary
altriciality. I’ll check this out more and then elaborate on this.

Part of this peculiarity — the relative upstart humans have
another common defining characteristic: only half-ready for life at
the time of birth (relative to all other brother-sister species
comprising the citizens of Earth), they are, humans alone are, totally
dependent for their survival upon the good will of the fully grown —
often parents, but not of necessity and certainly not always.
