Purpose and welcome.

I'm not sure what this is going to evolve into. It's just a seed at the moment. I want to highlight posts and thoughts and pictures and articles about everything that makes us uniquely human. From the weird to the mundane, from the profound to the profane.

The name Human Complex can be taken any way you like. Humans are complex. Humans have complexes. Human complexity is growing. Commonalities and unique axioms will always emerge from this complexity. That's what I hope to get at.

What other creature but a human, when so desperate and down would care for another species? There have been examples of inter-species nurturing when offspring are abandoned, but I think that may be more self-serving instinct than a conscious decision. Compassion will always be the defining factor in our originality. I don't know who to give credit to for the picture here (someone at NYU), but I think it's a great jumping off point for us. I will try my hardest to ensure this thing doesn't devolve into randomness.
God I hope I can keep up with this.
