Being Social

It’s probably best to begin at what we think is the beginning, that is, what we think we are, a human being.

The fact is we are socially conditioned to be a human being. From the moment of our birth, it's the grand plan. We are nurtured and we are schooled. We are forced and we are fooled. We are given a name, a catch-all, and we gather an identity as an individual, like so much string wound tight around a ball.

But of course, it was all here before we got here. So where did this beginning begin?
