"Then why do we need one? It seems like an unneccesary artifact if it's unneeded for life, consciousness, emotion, etc."

It is needed to communicate with God, and with eachother one a higher level. I believe we are the only beings on earth to do that.

"Wolves will care for their sick and infirmed. Dolphins will work together to take down a shark that threatens their pod. A mother killdeer will pretend to be injured to lure predators away from her nest. It's not completely different."

Yes, but I think humans are different in the sense that not everybody does the same thing like animals. Mother killdeer always protect the babies, dolphins don't just sit there when a shark attacks, but humans do not always act on these 'instincts'. We make choices very differently than animals. I think animals are almost like computers, they act a certain way when a certain thing happens (in most situations). But humans react differentally in all types of situations. I probably won't react the same way my Father does to the same situation, where as an animal would probably react the same way that animal always has.

My point is kinda tough to communicate, but I hope you get the idea.
