a human being should be able to write a song, cook a tasty meal, butcher a red deer, write poetry, build a hut, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooporate, act alone, solve equations, think critically, philosophize, analyze a new problem, code a program, balance accounts, break some rules, have skin in the game, fight efficiently and die stoically and gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
