A “Human Being”

Question: What does it really mean to be Human?

Answer: I think the question in answer to your question is the following: “Towards what purpose you want to enhance your life?”.

Enhancing without any particular reason is futile. Our whole life is pointless without a final, overall goal, purpose. Without such an endpoint we have no possibility to measure success, failures, mistakes, happiness or sadness against.

Only when we established such an overall goal – preferably above the usual goals, necessities that relate to our usual “animate” (food, sex, family) and “social” (wealth, power/fame, knowledge) desires – can we try enhancing, improving our life, gain new qualities, capabilities in order to serve that overall goal, purpose.

Then we can find enhancements in the right, purposeful, mutually supportive and mutually complementing environment, where everybody is committed to work towards the same goal, using the same practical method, tools
