An 'integrated human' is a generalist working towards development in all areas; this encompasses the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. This person is driven by autonomy, mastery, and purpose, based on the highest good of all.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. -- Robert A. Heinlein
