“What it Means to be Human”

How often do we ask ourselves what is the purpose of life?  The team at Big History Project asked, but in a slightly different way.

What does it mean to be human?

In June 2015, the team at Big History Project invited submissions for a video making competition.  The theme of the competition was “What does it mean to be human?”

The winning entry for the competition was submitted by Abby Lammers from St. Louis, Missouri.

“Unlike being bos taurus implies cowness, or being phoenicopterus roseus implies flamingoness, being a Homosapien doesn’t imply being Humanness.  Being Human is something more than that!”

Felt it was a thoughtful video on Mankind’s responsibility of love and stewardship for our Planet, and the presentation was simple and enjoyable to watch.

Hope you enjoy watching too!

  1. Interesting video – makes the viewer think about their own humaness and how they interact with our environment. Thank you for sharing. I do think that trees are more connected than given credit for. The eldest tree in the forest provides nourishment to the entire forest and home to little critters, plus oxygen and nutrients to the world – not to mention positive energy. Just had to give a little plug to my friends, the trees! Love and Light!

    1. Very true! We are part of this world, and the trees, plants, animals do play their part in nourishing us, sometimes in sacrifice, from oxygen to food to even building materials. Have a great weekend! 🙂
