    A Strange Mixture

    Humans are a strange mixture. We have such incredibly advanced brains with processing and reasoning capacities far beyond the most advanced super-computer, and yet we have such base instincts. We're ruled by such primitive emotions as fear, anger, greed, lust. It's almost as if a...
