Special Agent, apart from other elements, consists from the two words: “special” and “agent”.

The word special relates to the speciality of oneself: be it a brain better suited for solving mathematical problems or the ability to cook amazing Italian food.

To be special is to be different from the rest, which is already the case, because nobody is the same, everyone is a little bit different. To find the difference is the speciality of oneself is a very fulfilling way to be special, although not the only one.

The word “special” relates to the word “specie”, so to be special is also to belong to species. A human being belong to the human species, but also to mammals. To be special, therefore, is to act on behalf of the human species and on behalf of all (baby) animals with that speciality, which makes you unlike anyone else.

If we now move to the notion of an agent, we usually have associations to something like a travel agent or an agent of a musician. These are only specific cases of agents, which are part of a broader definition. An agent is the one who has the capacity to act (from Latin “agentio”). To be one’s own agency. To be an agent is to explore the agentivity of oneself, to gain the power, and to let go. To connect to the others and to the environment through the actions that we inscribe into reality.

A special agent, therefore, is the one who is pro~actively acting on behalf of their species with that speciality they have into the world. A sort of social individualism with a touch of idealistic pragmatism.
