Learning to be a human

In a learning environment, learning to be (become? remain?) a human (or simply human) is not only the most important, but the only ultimately important and on an ultimate level only important learning "process" (endeavour)? Accepting everybody, all other humans regardless of their age or ability/ies as equally first, I wrote "good"valuable and human. How they are ... shall I continue here? ... is "precious"? unique? or simply human. This section here was written on 2010-07-06 between about 07:15h and 07:19h with some minor amendments on 07:22h

Alternative titles:

  • instilling learning gratitude, respect and self-restriction (and all the other nouns)

I thought about a title here and ultimately it is just... not ultimately... it is about being a human. Being human or more precise being a human. And in case of a child, being and becoming, becoming and being a human. I also remember the phone conversation of 2010-05-13 and I misunderstood the woman. What the woman on the phone meant was not an issue about being a member of the biological species homo sapiens. I did not understand her warning or maybe helpful hint.

What if a reader does not understand what I mean here in an equal way like me almost until now? How to explain what being a human means? Not in the biological-species sense.

restriction, self-restriction, gratitude, humbleness, humility, (humanity, ) modesty, fear, love, respect, trust, openness, patience, decorousness, "decency"?, ..., no actually, accepting, ... accepting (without the actually), avoiding ... or without the avoiding ... not being over-ambitious, loslassen

It is not a matter of a list. By compiling a list, one does not come up to what is meant, it is ... actually, no, not actually ... really the opposite of a list. It is understanding, intution, knowledge. A struggle against oneself that should not be a struggle and in an ideal case isn't. "ideal"? Is that the right word?

In my case, it is - or maybe unfortunately for me would be - to be able to distinguish serious wrongdoing or wrongthinking from ironic wrongthinking and wrongdoing. The question is if my wrong thoughts are ironic or serious and in case they are serious, how they can or could be cured ("cured" is not a nice word, maybe corrected or better understood would be more appropriate). And irony - shouldn't it be allowed and even encouraged, for the sake of humour? And "diversity"? Serious diversity, seriously meant diversity outside humanness? And what about strongly voiced, but still ironic diversity? Irony is allowed and might even be encouraged. But to ultimately - or without the ultimately - know where to stop one's own irony is ... a challenge ... the challenge ... unclear.

This page here develops away from its title. The page now seems to be primarily for adults, but it was and is meant also an eduational or learning environment issue (for all ages). But what if the adult has not learned and/or is still unable to learn (how) to be a human? Wouldn't any endeavour to let the younger generation learn to be a human be futile in such a case?

listening to fellow humans. accepting how they are. and ultimately accepting oneself how one is.

To (r)evolutionize in the right scope and way and to abstain from preparing or struggling towards the ultimate (r)evolution by accepting.

But also abstain from pretending and dishonesty. But what if the truth about oneself is not favourable? Or only partially favourable?

2010-07-09 (this page here is "timeless", so why to insert a date here, maybe it would be better let the page as it is and only add amendments on a separate page with time indications?, it might also necessary to remove redundancy between this point here and the sections above but that might mean to change the above section too): learning modesty, gratitude, respect and love towards/for what is and exists and to limit one's own amibitions. ultimately the only real early childhood learning subject (should there be links from this page here to other pages, for example a link to page for the discussion of the "early onset" learning?).
