Human Nature

I think that human nature is a very difficult concept to fully comprehend.  It is something we know but don't, something we do but can't always understand why.  Human nature is something that develops over time and often change is beyond our control.  Our nature changes as we change and as society develops.  Things like technology and science effect our human nature because they change the way we think and process, and although we can contribute to the change, we cant force it on humans as a whole.  The fact is that human nature is our "nature".  It is what makes us human.  It is something inside us that we can try to adjust and fight, but in the end we can't stop being who we are and feeling what we feel.
