Hello Tumblr Friends!

So, hi. I don’t really know any of you. That’s really a shame because you take the time to follow me and I should return the favor by at least knowing something about you guys. Well, we can get to that later.

I’m here today to enlist the help of all 42 of you. Yes, all 42.

I have a project called Defining Humanity ( that I just launched yesterday. I figured out that the definition of humanity ("the state or quality of being human") really doesn’t describe anything human at all. I want to change that. I want to create a new definition of humanity; one that defines what is truly means to be human.

But, we can’t define humanity until we define ourselves so I’m asking people to define themselves in one word and explain why. Every word that gets submitted is another piece in the collective definition of humanity.

So, if you could, please go to the DH website or Tumblr page (below) and submit one word that defines you along with an explanation of why.

It would mean to world to me if you guys would do this! 42 followers means 42 potential words! I bet you guys are really interesting people, ones that I would not want to leave out of the definition of humanity!

Share this with your friends too! Every reblog helps :)

Defining Humanity: One Word at a Time


The goal of Defining Humanity is to create a definition for what it means to be human; describing our qualities, our attributes, and who we are.

To do that, we need your help.
Think of one word that defines you, submit it, and place your piece in the definition of us.

We might not be able to define humanity in one word, but we might be able to do it with a million.
