    2. What is the difference between humans and monkeys? We can tell that someone is a human or a monkey in appearance. What about other features? I'll introduce 3 examples. If someone says "I have nasal congestion", they must be human. Mouth-breathing is an human-only feature. Monkeys use only their noses in respiration. You may be afraid that monkeys would die from choking. Don't worry, nasal congestion is an human-only feature, too. If someone says "I'm able to use tools", they may be a monkey. It was said that using tools was a human-only ability. But it has been reported recently that monkeys also use tools, including fire! Nowadays, it is said that a human-only feature is using tools to make other tools. If someone says "I'm able to mimic you", it's difficult to judge which they are, but I can. There is the word "aping". (Which corresponds to "sarumane" in Japanese."Saru" is an ape, interesting!) Monkeys seem to be good at mimicry. But it is like this: there are two monkeys. One throws something to the other, and the other mimics the first one, and the first one also mimics the other. That is to say, they mimic each other alternately. In contrast to them, humans can mimic each other simultaneously. For example, a mother simultaneously smiles when a baby smiles. I simultaneously bow when you bow. This is a human-only feature.
