Actually I don't think it's weird that we heal. We inherited this property from our ancestors and,if they didn't have it they wouldn't have survived to have descendents like us.
I do think it's an absolutely fascinating set of properties- we can move, grow, repair react, reproduce and lots of other things; the mechanisms are sometimes unexpected and the details remarkable; but it's not actually suprising.

If we couldn't do it we wouldn't be here to think about it.
