Do you feel human?

I know it sounds strange, but this is meant to be a serious question. Type 5: Do you feel like a human being? Why or why not?

No, I do not feel like a human being because I am not one. I am a beam of light currently inhabiting a human body.

To paraphrase Douglas Quaid " If I'm not [human], then [what] the hell am I?"
Consciousness.

I possess all of the characteristics of a human being, therefor I am human.

When I think about people or mankind in general I normally set myself apart consciously. That's about the only time I feel truly different and wonder. But I still feel human.
Yes, I feel human, but I also feel like I'm outside the margins of most people. It's easy for me to slip into thinking or believing I'm seeing more or understanding things on a different level than most other people - the majority of the time that's probably true but I don't think being aware of it or believing it are healthy for me. Like @arleccio (sorry @Agape, for some reason I thought you made the above comment) , I still feel human but also outside.
I am nowhere yet everywhere. I am human yet I am not. I am actually a consciousness using a human body to interact with this reality :p. Because I live between two worlds...it has give me an understanding of how things work behind the curtain. Also has give me a tremendous capacity for empathy...because once you understand everything..much of the anger that you felt just goes away. Because I understand...I accept and because I accept..I love. Although sometimes it can be lonely >_>...because few people related; luckily there are a few more aware like me that are out there. Eventually like minded people stumble upon each other.
I rationally know I'm human. Obviously, I'm in a human body, I have a human brain and hence the working shape of my consciousness is a human one.

I often do not feel human in company, but when alone the entire issue disappears and I am just myself, human or not.
That and when I concentrate on peace, I feel like I drift from my body and become a part of another plane with cosmic entities and everlasting solace. I feel something a part of human, but something else when I am alone with my thoughts.

Yes and no.

Yes because I feel pain and pleasure.

No because I don't feel like I fit in to any man made system.

I could easily live as a hermit, and my track record shows it to be so.
I used to think no but now I wonder what a human being is.
There have been times when I've felt apart from humanity. Quite a few times, actually.
I know I'm human, but I don't feel like one. I made comparison of my self with majority of humans its obvious I'm a stranger. I often think of me as another life force sitting in front of a giant screen watching earthlings interact while making notes. And for several occasions dress up as one and mingle, to found out I want to be among them and believe their beliefs.
I feel like a human looking at a human aquarium.
I'm still in the stages of trying to figure out if humans exist,
since it might only be me and a whole lot of illusions.
Sometimes yes and sometimes no. Depending on the situation and mood. Very complicated!

I agree, but the question should read, "do you feel like being human?" I am a human being but I despise being human.

I do...then I go outside and actually talk to other people, and start to rethink that. Rinse and repeat.
