Regina, Saskatchewan; Canada
For every excellence of increased wit and control in the human, there is an excellence of increased features and instinct in an animal:
Bird's wings and feathers <=> Human's aircrafts (airplanes, etc)
Fish's gills and fins <=> Human's watercrafts (ships, etc,)
Horse's speeds and force <=> Human's landcrafts (wagons, etc)
Therefore, animals make up for a lack of insight or increased wit, with instinct; and humans make up for a lack of instinct, or increased instinct, with insight. The only thing, is that humans crafts are not already made. Metals do not naturally occur as machines, or jewellery, etc, etc. and they don't evolve as those on their own. Therefore Human's need to observe the rest of the natural world, and learn from what does best, so they may do better, and better meet its instinct, with adequate insight.
In other words, humans need to do better because they do not best.
