I read an interesting philosophy pertaining to the question, "What is the difference among 'human' and 'human being'...?" Well first, human is the kind of creature. But "human being" was described as a fictional creature, a mythical creature that is un changeable. "Being" is to be just "there", compared to the word "becoming", which is a word implying constant change. While a human being is just not changing, which implies a fake creature that "just is", in reality humans are actually "human becomings", because we are always improving, we are growing, developing and becoming more than what we were days, hours, minutes and seconds before. Thus, a human being is actually (to put it in the way it was broken down) a slave to "being" unchangeable and not free to journey and "become". In conclusion, the free refer themselves as (just) "human", while the ignorant slave, unwise of their choice of words, maintain that they are a "human being".
