We had a discussion on that a couple of years ago on theos-l.
Liesel suggested: universal Siblinghood (when I recall it right)
and I've used that phrase in my theosophical writings for the internet.
I prefer the word Siblinghood over Brotherhood because it is a term that
is not only gender neutral, but also more accurate, descriptive of the fact
that we hold many things (genes, behaviour, physiological aspects, etc.)
in common with animals and other realms of nature.
