Just like the universe, the human eye is infinite. I could read your eyes every day for the rest of my life, and ever meet a new you.
Humans have evolved different shapes and colors, but we also share a human spirit. We are different yet the same, and together we are beautiful.
We transcend the physical
We transcend time
We transcend our nature
If we are already capable of altering our own genetic code, then what is our true nature? What is the meaning of color and shape if we can change it at will?
We capture sapientia in a bottle
What makes us human?
We are a contradictio in terminis, a transcending spirit in a mortal, natural shell. To understand what makes us human, then, we need to embrace the contradiction. We need to understand the nature of the flesh, the nature of the human spirit, and how the two interact to make us fully human.
