In American Psycho, an American cult thriller, the main character says "I have all the characteristics of a human being: flesh, blood, skin, hair, but not a single clear, identifiable emotion, except for greed and disgust". On the outside, he is seen to be a simple, wealthy man but behind closed doors he is a serial killer. American Psycho is a representation of how you may look like a perfectly normal human but your actions and mindset are more primitive than that of animals. We might see ourselves as superior to animals but many times their moral compasses surpass ours. Are they human-like because they show a reasoning or is that not exclusive to mankind? We are capable of showcasing a myriad of physiological changes in our lives called emotions. It is these emotions that breathe life into our existences. How else would we be able to express love, regret, and happiness all at once? But what's not to say that a cat or an elephant could be experiencing the same greed, joy, and despair that we do? Or even the artificial intelligence that we create to make our lives better? It's been shown countless times in Hollywood films. We've also got a pretty handy friend named Siri who is able to understand and talk with us. As humans, we have the perk of a plethora of mediums in which to express ourselves, but history says that humans are not the only ones who are capable of the emotions that define us.
