What I didn't like was the whole religious metaphoric stuff in it. I hoped for good old solid gritty sci-fi, close to the 70's ways, but it had to be too sublime and epic. Less would have been more.

Out of the plethora of animal species, we are the only one dependent on technology to exist. All animal species are unique, but all share some similarities, enough so that we can categorize them. We(humans) do not even qualify as an 'animal specie'. An 'animal specie'(for me) is a living entity that has everything it need from birth to live on its planet. We don't. Don't you find that abit odd?

I wouldn't say that we depend on technology, we can live without technology. There is a hierarchy of intelligence in the animal world, some very primitive, some impressively intelligent, and there are many species where the children must learn skills from the parents, or else they wont be able to gather food and thus simply die. This is not unique to us. Some animals are 100% ready when they emerge, others, of which are most (if not all) mammals, like us, are not.

I think we came to be as this because our predecessors, whoever they were, had the most optimal traits to develop into that direction. Where we began to walk upright and build tools, a reptile specie may have just developed wings and haven't still changed today. Maybe it was indeed some sort of a genetic error that ultimately opened the way?

What did your friend exactly meant with something being strange about our DNA?

Crouched running is a must. R6/GR and Thief had this and it's great.

I generally wish for all movement modes to have an equal in any stance. So if you can run upright, you can run crouched (but slower) and the run function has a fast crawl movement when prone. Shuffle would make you move slow and cautious when upright and crouched, but also crawl real slow and silent.

A plethora, not counting in all that existed throughout history.
