What It Means To Be A Human Being Essay

First of all, I would invite all of you to read and perceive the content of the present essay as objective as possible, and not because we, as human beings we are use to be warned before or to have an idea about the upcoming circumstances in our lives, but because the sum of the ideas in question lead to generalities or peculiarities of the life in its own essence.

Let us start with the most controversial nowadays topic, that would be ' human being'. Human beings are supposed to describe, to comprise all members belonging to the 'Homo sapiens' race: person, man, woman or child. The definition of the human being it is an universal one, each of us considering the term ' human' as the one who lives on Earth, characterized by distinctive features( superior intelligence, accurate speech). 

Taking into account the fact that technology provided us knowledge about other existing forms of life in the infinite Cosmos, why we don't assume the term 'human' as being employed in defining other specified forms of life? I would assume that the population of Mars call themselves 'humans' as well. We consider us 'human' as citizen of Earth, so consequently they could also name their nation 'humans' Nobody really proved or discovered with precision that are no 'humans' or other living creatures in other parts of the Universe.

Some of us believe or not the new theories  regarding civilization, but why? Why we don't all of us have a common belief? And with this point, I am going to start to emphasize the distinction between personal and common beliefs.

 People are born free and the most important their brains are the same with a blank slate. This would mean that people react or present a response to different stimulus, this resulting in shaping their own behaviour.

Different means of education appear in our lives, family being the primar one, followed by the institutional system of the society, group in which we live. We all grow up and define our personalities according to the environment of which we belong to. and not by our own. This is something mandatory at the beginning of our journey in life, but what it is not a 'must' is to follow or to agre with. Once you acquired the necessary information and you are able to distinguish between good and bad, most probably none of us needs influence from outside. 

This world is the same for all.We want to travel, to discover new things or to cross our personal boundaries, or perhaps we want to push our limits  in order to achieve somehting that could bring us satisfaction. We all do this during our lie and we all now that competition between us it will never end. 

After all of these, we assume the term ' Ideal'. Everyone wants a better world,a more peaceful atmosphere  in our lives or no crimes anymore between memebers of the same species. But who ius going to do this? Our fellows or should we start first and analysing the result of it? 

We come from different parts of the world, totally different countries and we meet in a common place. What comes in the first moment? The permament subjectivity that rules our actions. We introduce ourselves and the other already has an idea about us, but based on unproved facts. Here it comes personal opinion and the objective one. It is nobody's fault for being raised up in another country than Germany let us say for example. You could have been born in each parth of this Earth.

Each country has its own system of rules, its own beliefs,customs and so on. you follow them  but you could also try to imagine how it would be without them, or just simply you could be opened to new ones. If eveyone would ask himself,herself ' what if I would have been born in another country , what if i would be an animal?' . Taking all these things into consideration, we could make a statement regarding the topic of the ' Cultures and differencies between countries': just because we are not all in the same country ,should we start the mas phenomenon of discrimination or carp..

Most of us, we are afraid of risks or responsibilities or try something new because society offerend us an illusion and we don't think logic. Don't we all wake up in the morning and we takle breakfast, don'tz we all drink water everyday? From my personal poin of view, facing a shock culture is just an illusion of our backwards prejudice: we are the same. When i decided to come in Germany, I never took into account the negative facts, or differencies between my culture and the german one. I perfectly had an idea about a small village, a school with disabled children and the posibility to play on the stage perfectly confident and shinning like a diamond.International exchanges, european programs or any other project , designed to the individual are for your own development to the outreach. 

Having expectations implies automatically a risk of disappointments too. I came in Germany al0one, for the first time in my life in a foreign country and i've never been skeptical as fas as it concerns my following months here.I caem positive, with vitality in my bones,ready to see, to choose, to to learn to take to give and to produce, which i think this could represent the key for a perfect experience in a foreign country. Just because people look confident this doesn't mean they are, just because people are rich doesn't mean that they don't value a slice of bread you offer them.

I alread stated that i playedand still doing it,, the principal role on the stage(' life is a stage and we are all actor', W.Shakespeare). One would say shakespeare meant we all wear a mask but why we don't think about that you already play your skills and also looking for new ones?This is about Ö i saw this experience as trying my best.

Having such a work,with special persons, it brings advantages and disadvantages. Many times i had my head out of the reality, but what i received back from them it is unique.A hug, a tear on the cheek , a sweet talking, a handshake, a glance embodying the purest love or a laugh represent just a small small part of the priceless things we can ahve. 

We look disguisted to the others just because their appearances is not similar to ours, but we can't see the essence: feelings.

Modern times, new technology, progress sounds sounds better than this word, but it is as clear as water that a PC or money are not going to provide you an ecstasy of emotions, a unity of cells or a packthread between two hearts.

Such a paradox is life : we are born to die, we eat to survive, we fail to prevail, we dream to hide, we hide  to expose and we win to lose.

Could somebody ever think about the ciclicity of the Universe in order to perform the necessary coexistence, for an absolute harmony?We could never judge , be afraid of, hit, insult, forget  or discriminate our fellow if we would think of it.Bo borders would be between us when we alll would be able to understand, empathise and find the proper goal in our lives.

Living in another country, far away from your family, doesn't mean you are alone. Having the luck to meet good natured people doesn't mean all belong just to the respective country. Good and badf is everywhere and it is up to us to find the beauty in things, humanity and nature. Once we understand circumstances, genesis or the background, we would not have any critical remarks and in this way nobody would be malcontend, this resulting in perfect relationships between us: HUMANS. 

 I choose this general type of essay, just because everybody complains or promotes differents views, but nobody thinks at the background.

 I had the perfect experience, the prettiest time in my life during my EVS project and I met so many good hearted people here, that i would claim: everywhere is perfect, if you enjoy it and take advantage of it. With strentgh we move on and create. Never give up to the struggle and be positive people, so that the other next to you to offer you what you want: happines, comfort and freindship.So share and dare!

Part of what it means to be human is how we became human. Over a long period of time, as early humans adapted to a changing world, they evolved certain characteristics that help define our species today.

This section of our website focuses on several human characteristics that evolved over the past 6 million years. As you explore the scientific evidence for these characteristics, you will discover that these traits did not emerge all at once or in any one species. There were important milestones along the way. For example, early humans began walking upright before they began making tools. A rapid increase in brain size occurred before early humans began using symbols to communicate. And all of these traits emerged before humans began domesticating plants and animals.

Walking Upright

The earliest humans climbed trees and walked on the ground. This flexibility helped them get around in diverse habitats and cope with changing climates.

Tools & Food

Early humans butchered large animals at least 2.6 million years ago. By at least 500,000 years ago, early humans made wooden spears and used them to kill large animals.


As early humans spread to different environments, they evolved body shapes that helped them survive in hot and cold climates. Changing diets also led to changes in body shape.


As early humans faced new environmental challenges and evolved bigger bodies, they evolved larger and more complex brains.

Social Life

Sharing food, caring for infants, and building social networks helped our ancestors meet the daily challenges of their environments.

Language & Symbols

From pigments to printing presses, symbols changed the way humans lived and provided new ways to cope with an unpredictable world.

Humans Change the World

Within just the past 12,000 years, our species, Homo sapiens, made the transition to producing food and changing our surroundings. We have been so successful that we have inadvertently created a turning point in the history of life on Earth.
