What does it mean “being Human”?

Question from the Internet:

“What is the attribute of a human being?”

“Human” in Hebrew is “Adam” which originates from the expression “similar”.

A “truly Human” being is one that becomes similar to Nature’s attributes of selfless, altruistic, unconditional service and love of others, so mutually with those others a “truly Human” being could build a “Nature-like”, mutually integrated Human “superorganism”.

The mutually created and sustained selfless, altruistic, and unconditional love and service of others creates a completely new sense of existence, a new, collective consciousness in this Human “superorganism” which will become our “truly Human” life.

This new level of existence can be compared to how we now sense reality, life on a personal, systematic level above and instead of experiencing life on the level of our single cells, or organs.

To achieve this qualitatively much higher level of collective existence and sense Nature’s perfect system from within as a result is our evolutionary Human purpose.
