Is there anything that a human being can never possibly do?

We humans are so overwhelmed with the millions of actions that we perform everyday. We call ourselves multitaskers and have todo lists and sometimes are concerned about over todo lists being overloaded.

But there should be zillions of things that human beings can never be able to do or are incapable of doing.

We might not have thought much about them. So thinking in this new perspective might create some new connections in your brain.

All the best.

  • Jan 23 2013: I guess there are a lot of things we cannot naturally do, for example, we cannot naturally fly.
    However, human beings are at an advantage as we can use resources effectively and with intelligence to allow us to do these kind of things, in comparison to other organisms who cannot do this to the same extent as us.
    I think there are a lot of things we cannot or should not be able to do, yet, I do not think this will stop us trying, and maybe even succeeding in most cases!
