Are you a wizard?
A lot of what makes us human is the ability to pass on information from one generation to the next. Other animals can do that to some degree, but not to the gigantic extent that we do -- which is why we're able to make huge leaps in technology with very little changes to our genes.
Being smart isn't enough -- other animals are plenty smart and creative enough to advance technologically (looking at you, octopuses) but they lack the ability to effectively pass that information on to other members of the species. Meanwhile, animals good at passing on information (such as eusocial animals like ants or bees) are really fucking dumb individually.
I had a point to this post but it's late, I'll get back to it tomorrow.
I hope I get to read more about your builtworld!
