Genesis 2:18-20

"Then the Lord God said,"It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is right for him."
From the ground God formed every wild animal and every bird in the sky, and he brought them to the man so the man could name them. Whatever the man called each living thing, that became it's name. The man gave names to all the tame animals, to all the birds in the sky, and to all the wild animals. But Adam did not find a helper which was right for him."

I think that the moral of this verse is that we are at our best when we are balanced by our equals. We are not suited to be dominated or dominating. Animals and birds are good and beautiful and helpful and at times may even stay loneliness, but none of them is any match for having a human who we can sit and have a conversation with.
