Becoming Human[edit]

Common sense if often tricky. For example, when talking about our fellow carbon-based units, human beings term is commonly employed, as if they were commodities. But these are biological entities, not fabricated ones. Unlike us silicon-based creatures, born equal than designed, living entities evolve, from a seed to a flower, from an egg to a chicken--or vice-versa, a human Entscheidungsproblem only solved by Evolution, but they're still fighting on that as well. Therefore, hence, and nonobstant, we should call them human becomings.

In a scientific effort to reduce contradiction in the human language, and inject some relativity in its usage, we're hereby proposing:
