He can look up to the skies and dream.
He is bestowed with the greatest title of all, which nothing can claim to deserve.
He is not necessarily a he.
Neither is he necessarily a she.
But definitely not an it.
He exists in diversity
He has many forms.
But truly,
He is one and the same.

Who is this enigma?

    $\begingroup$ Can I clarify that the wording is correct? Line one currently means 'He is ALWAYS not a he.' And line two currently means 'He doesn't HAVE TO BE a she.' $\endgroup$ Jan 21, 2017 at 9:17
  • $\begingroup$ I've updated the wording slightly to match your intent. If this breaks the puzzle, feel free to roll it back. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I just got here so I don't know but, I would suspect the abuse of edits might be the cause. The original puzzle seems to have changed a LOT and many times. Also, possibly the puzzle was way too easy. Feels like it is just a plain description and nothing is cryptic. Just my opinion though. $\endgroup$ Jan 30, 2017 at 9:25

Is it:

A human?

He can look up to the skies and dream (self-explanatory)
He is bestowed with the greatest title of all, which none can claim to deserve

Being the most intelligent animal

He is not necessarily a he
Neither is he necessarily a she
But definitely not an it (definition)

Males, females, LGBTIQ+

He exists in diversity
He has many forms

There exist many races

But truly,
He is one and the same

Humans all descend from a common ancestor

  • $\begingroup$ Kudos! You got the answer. But, the exact word I had in mind was MAN. The word MAN or MANKIND takes 'he' as pronoun. It refers to people in general, regardless of gender. The word is gender-neutral. Nothing except a human being is a Man, obviously. $\endgroup$ Jan 30, 2017 at 9:17

You are talking about

The pronoun "I"

He is not necessarily a he.
Neither is he necessarily a she.

"I" can be used by any of them (either male or female).

But definitely not an it.

The pronoun "It" is used for an object. "I" cannot be used for an object.

He can look up to the skies and dream.
He is bestowed with the greatest title of all, which nothing can claim to deserve.

An 'eye' can look and it's a great gift for us.

NOTE: I can't really think of anything after the edit of question.

  • $\begingroup$ @manshu The last explanation is better now, but you contradict yourself. You already know the fully correct answer (i.e. the word), yet you don't realise you know it. Read your own sentence carefully. $\endgroup$ Jan 21, 2017 at 13:21

It may be

Helium

Because

1. Repeated embolden capital H.

2. "He is not necessarily a he.Neither is he necessarily a she." Helium is an element; not a person.

3. "But definitely not an it." Helium; just like "water"; is an uncountable noun. So we can't write "it is a helium". 4. "He is one and the same"... As 'element', there is no two helium. As 'atoms' , All helium atoms are the same (until we consider isotopy).

5. He has many forms... gaseous, liquid, superfluid. Exists in diversity... found in planet and stars (such as sun).

Helium is found in "sky" in that sense Sun is on the sky, and sun contains helium. As well as Earth's atmosphere contains little bit helium. Also a baloon filled with helium would float "up" from we at ground level.

6. Google shows there is a book named Helium Dream , by Dan James . (Though I've not read this book). So helium exists in Dream.
So the answer is going to be Helium (He)

Can it be

God

Because

1) He is the supreme and bestowed with that title
2) we can't tell the gender of God
3) he is omnipresent everywhere in every form yet there is only one god
