What does it mean to be human?
This is not an easy issue to address. It must be about the balance of human strengths and weaknesses. The mindmaps below represent a few months of thinking in the background, based on years of experience. They are not meant to be exhaustive.
Mindmaps may be updated at any time. Where ideas are borrowed or modified from other sources, these are declared. This is not professional advice, opinion or a lecture. I do not express an opinion on whether humanity is weak or strong. The mindmaps are for those who may wish to engage in deeper thought. Those do not wish to think more deeply are free to do so – as they know – but I still need to say it to avoid unspecified potential difficulties that could arise. Mind the fat disclaimer below!
For the avoidance of doubt, I do not require:
- Any audience.
- Advice, support or counselling.
- Acknowledgements, pats on the back or other forms of praise or thanks.
- Feedback or contact from/with anyone.
- Opinions on my personality or functioning.
The above points are not exhaustive – and have become necessary as an adaptation to the mindlessness of a minority of people. I publish on this site irrespective of any ideas implied or inferred by others.
