Fully actualized humanity

Ahhh, but what is it to fully realize our human potential? Is it to be worldy saints, striving to be perfectly ethical and just? Is it to embrace our animality and disgard the "noble" virtues (Anton LaVey); or perhaps a milder form of hedonism?

Perhaps it is like Nietzsche says: to embrace the human life is to embrace adversity and that Christian morality is the bane of human advancement. But must egalitarian hopes be banished for the sake of humanity's greatness?
