What are we besides being called "Human"?

I am 17-years old and the school that I go to is called "West Valley High" home of the wolfpack. high-school human-resources


Being called “Human” is basically called people. All of us, we are adults like grownups. If you like to study about humans, you can take a course called Humanities. Grace H.

Jason’s Answer

Humanities are academic disciplines that study aspects of human society and culture. The humanities include the study of ancient and modern languages, literature, philosophy, history, archaeology, anthropology, human geography, law, politics, religion, and art. Ya know, all the stuff that makes life worth living! There is a major focus in education on STEM, which is valid, but a world without art - without new music, new films, new designs - is not a very compelling world to want to live in. The humanities are what separate the human animal from all others.

Thank you for answering my question Jason. Hannah P.

Besides being called "Human," we are energy. We are in constant vibration, and the trick is to keep the frequency/vibration high. How do you know you are vibrating high? By acknowledging your feelings.

Lateia’s Answer

Hello Hannah,

I found an article explaining the name origin of humans. I listed the reference as well. I hope this helps!!

The common name of the human species in English is historically man (from Germanic), often replaced by the Latinate human (since the 16th century).

In addition to the generally accepted taxonomic name Homosapiens (Latin: "sapient man", Linnaeus 1758), other Latin-based names for the human species have been created to refer to various aspects of the human character.
