Why do we say 'human being' and not 'being human?' 
The 'being' preceded and formed the 'human,' after all.
 I think I prefer the term 'Being-human.'(Sandra Eggers)

  1. I prefer the term: "Human Bean".
    This term removes all the self-importance humans are so prone to exhibit, and renders them somewhat foolish, which I find to be a useful perspective.
    Or sometimes; "Human Been".
    Which suggests "been there, done that", as a cue to move on to higher things.

  3. Being human sounds more apt in contemporary conditions.
    Very thoughtful expression.

  4. Welcome and thanks Malathy Badri for sharing your insights. I fully agree that 'being human' is what we need in today's chaotic conditions..
