Personal Statement

I like to think that the most important trait differentiating humans from others is that we can imagine being something other than ourselves. We imagined flying like birds, and we invented airplanes, and no other being that I know of is capable of imagination to such extent. So then my question is: can humans actually become something else? Can we, as a human race, become something other than what we are? So far in history some may argue that it is not our nature, but our tools, that evolved. Can we change? Can we do to ourselves what we did to wolves to create dogs?
