       By mind I mean awareness that I am,
       and separate from all other things around,
       knowing my existence is no sham
      and certain that this insight is profound.

       Self-consciousness like ours appears unique
       among all living creatures here on Earth,
       for only humans are disposed to seek
       such comprehension and to claim such worth.

            No other entity seems so designed—
            unless there is a maker of our mind.
