The uncanny valley is where we are scared by things that look almost human but aren't. Other animals do not experience the uncanny valley effect and will accept things things that look like them with little issue. That means that at some point in our evolution, running away from things that looked almost human was advantageous enough to be imprinted on our genetics. What the fuck were we that scared of?
