It is a construct of the evolution of society.

When people stopped working in the fields to express themselves artistically, they needed someone to support their endeavours. They needed patrons. This created a division between those who created, and those who supported the creators, each believing themselves better than the other. The arrogance of both sides caused the division to become wider and as such, there is little to no association between them anymore.

As anyone who calls themselves a "true artist" -- they'll probably have a loathing for the people who spend all their days in the office, and their nights going to movies or shows.

Then there's the businessman who only tolerates the hippies playing music on the subway, because occasionally they get famous and make a good record.

There are too few HUMANS in the world anymore. People who can see the benefits of both sides and actually want to EXPERIENCE both sides.

You, sir, are a wonderful human, plain and simple.

Human in the Bene Gesserit sense? Or are you thinking of something else?

I've had a difficult time seeing the "human-ness" in myself of late. It might be the anxiety speaking, but I've not been able to access those things that I find of value in myself. I feel like I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop for five years, and I know that I was waiting for entirely different reasons in the five years prior to that. On some level, I think that being human requires you to live rather than exist, and I feel like I've been stuck in the latter for as long as I can remember.

Yeah, I'm wallowing a bit here. It's been a rough couple of days.
