What makes humans unique? Do we have characteristics that make us different from other animals? PBS will be broadcasting a three-part series on the topic this fall. In advance of the series premiere, the producers want you to tell them why humans are special. You can submit a photo, a video, or text. Some entries will appear on screen, so make a grab for your 15 seconds of fame, and send in your ideas.

Based on the exhibit in the Human Body Gallery, it sounds like you're defining the "human spark" as curiousity, inventiveness, and creativity--all things we classify under intelligence. I guess I'm wondering then, why use the euphemism "human spark" when everything you're looking at connects with intelligence?

We are the dominate species. Some of us only think what decisions can do to man kind, and not to other animals. We also can make a diffrence that other annimals can't.

I like the human brain because it can help you think before you do something reallly dangoureous. That's why I picked the human brain.
