The year is 2500, and you have just been revived after spending 500 years in a cryogenic state of suspended animation. Your file identifies you a person with “extensive, interactive experience with a variety of Humans”.
In addition to Humans, Earth is now inhabited by Humanoid Androids (Humands), and the two are virtually indistinguishable. The Humands are biologically identical to Humans; there is presently no known way to distinguish them from Humans. This is where you come in.
Your Assignment: The present leaders on Earth believe it important to distinguish between Humans and Humands (never mind why!), and have brought you out of your frozen state to aid in “The Project”as they call it. Your task is to use your “extensive, interactive experience with a variety of Humans” to generate a list of fewer than five characteristics that are truly and uniquely “Human”.
Note: These characteristics must not be biological in nature, but you needn’t worry about how observable they are either; once you have come up with the list, another team of experts will develop a test to determine if individuals possess these Human qualities. Good luck, and remember: everyone will have to take the test….even you!
