This is Freedom Essay 29

 

Can human conflict ever be brought to an end?

 

As was described in the previous Freedom Essay (F. Essay 28), life under the duress of the human condition has been horrific-beyond-description, with, for example, racial prejudice resulting in the Holocaust where 6 million Jews were exterminated by the Nazis during World War II, and in more recent times, the attempted ‘ethnic cleansing’ by the Bantu Hutu of some 800,000 of the tall, elitist Nilotic Tutsi in 100 days of bloodshed in Rwanda in 1994. Indeed, every day brings news of horrendous atrocities, such as is currently occurring in Syria, as this news report shows:

 

News headline: A ‘meltdown of humanity’… in Aleppo

 

We would like to think the world is becoming more civilised, however, horror headlines and images such as this paint a far different picture of where humanity is really at. And the crisis in Aleppo is not some rare exceptionviolence, prejudice in all its forms, wars and terrorism characterise the age we live in.

The truth is that in a world in crisis, the only way real and lasting peace can be achieved is to deal with the primary cause of all human conflict, which is us humans, our destructive behaviourour human condition, in fact. As biologist Jeremy Griffith says in the first video of the Introductory Series (see Video/​F. Essay 1):

 

Solving the human condition doesn’t just bring immense relief and happiness to our personal situations, it solves all the world’s problems at the sourceit is the key to ending the dystopia we live in of polarised politics, failed economies, rampant greed, corruption, hate, conflict, inequality, envy, starvation, over-population, mess, refugee floods, and terrorism, and everywhere environmental devastation.

 

The reason the issue of ‘the human condition’ has long been described as ‘the holy grail’ of the whole of the human journey of thought and enquiry is precisely because it is only that deeper understanding of our psychologically troubled human condition that can fix our worldas journalist Richard Neville has written:

 

… the world is hurtling to catastrophe: from nuclear horrors, a wrecked eco-system, 20 million dead each year from malnutrition, 600 million chronically hungry… All these crises are man made, their causes are psychological. The cures must come from this same source; which means the planet needs psychological maturity fast. We are locked in a race between self destruction and self discovery.

 

(Good Weekend, The Sydney Morning Herald, 14 Oct. 1986; see www.wtmsources.com/167)

 

And astonishing as it is, it is that key psychologically relieving and maturing explanation of the human condition that Jeremy has found. His treatise explains that the destructive potential in each of us is the result of a psychosis in the human species that resulted from a 2-million-year-old clash between our emerging consciousness and our pre-established instincts.

 

Basically, when we humans developed a conscious mind some 2 million years ago, a battle unavoidably developed between it and our already established instincts. The result of this conflict between our instinct and intellect was that we became psychologically defensive, angry, alienated and egocentricthe upset state we refer to as the human condition. But now that we can explain and understand this conflict, all those insecure, defensive behaviours are obsoleted, brought to an end, and we free ourselves from the human condition.

 

(From Video/​F. Essay 3)

 

Jeremy Griffith, Sydney, November 2013

Jeremy Griffith, 2013

 

It takes time to absorb the full ramifications of Jeremy’s explanation, but the more you digest it, the more you realise that this psychologically ‘upset’ state is behind all the conflict and suffering on the planet. And since the human condition is essentially a psychosis, the other wonderful realisation is that it can be permanently healed through understanding.

This is why Professor Harry Prosen, former President of the Canadian Psychiatric Association, has written:

 

What this book of books, in fact this greatest of all books, does is take humanity from a state of bewilderment about the nature of human behavior and existence to a state of profound understanding of our livesunderstanding that drains away all the pain, suffering, confusion and conflict from the world. This is the book we have been waiting for, it is THE BOOK THAT SAVES THE WORLD!

 

And why Dr Scott Churchill, Professor and former Chair of the University of Dallas Psychology Department, has written:

 

Nothing Dr. Prosen has said about the immense importance of this book is an exaggeration.

    What a terrible year 2016 was. I agree it takes time to absorb the implications of this theory but it has given me great hope and love for fellow man

  • highline on January 27, 2017 at 4:04 pm

    This is a very contentious point you are making here. I can see a lot of people who are so caught up in feuds and age old grievances, not being able to see beyond those grievances, no matter how logical and rational your point is. I do take your point that if people weren’t so angry and aggressive and selfish and insecure then there wouldn’t be any wars. But I suppose no-one believes that we can ever change those aspects of ourselves, so that is probably the real thing that you have to convince people of — that we can fundamentally change. And I have read Jeremy’s thesis on this, so I am aware of his theory that all that behaviour of ours that leads to wars is not an instinctive thing, but is the result of a psychosis, and so it can change. It is a very radical idea that’s for sure. Please keep these posts coming though, because they are very very provocative, and force my old head to think a bit differently.

  • nomad on January 27, 2017 at 4:08 pm

  • blindside on January 27, 2017 at 4:10 pm

    Thank you very much for sending me this material. I am so worried about where the world is heading these days and only this gives me hope. Everything you say about the trouble we are in is true and you dont even mention what population pressure is going to do to the whole situation. We need this fundamental solution.
    Also, I hope that people realise that they can register here and contribute to the discussion because it is a discussion we need to have. Keep up the good work.

  • pixie on January 27, 2017 at 4:11 pm

    We have to stop all the suffering. I so agree with Mr Griffith with all my heart. I am just horrified at where the world is heading. Is this really what we want? Everything we have tried just doesnt work and it just gets worse and worse. What sort of world are we leaving for our children? Religion just makes it worse because everyone starts fighting about their own beliefs. And there are so many old grievances at work in so many parts of the world that people cant get over. And each country is pushing its own agenda. Really, I would despair if it wasnt for this work. I can still hardly bare to think about it at all. Please keep up the good work for all of us.

  • Red on January 27, 2017 at 4:14 pm

    I agree Pixie. All the protests, the hand-wringing and navel-gazing, that’s been happening around the world this week is just exacerbating the world’s political grievances and sexual inequality. It is so necessary, now of all times, to get to the bottom of the problem, the human condition, and work together from there, rather than off self-interested motives that don’t make a ripple of true difference. Thank you all.

  • Nsengiyumva K Fred on March 3, 2017 at 6:28 pm

    1).Thank you to give this moment.I think the first conflict is your self , I know every one has his difficult
    but you know how to resolve .

    2) The first peace is my self. not friend or other if I have peace how I will got a conflict my peace could be a good teacher for others.
    3) Let one by one bring his peace after that they will no conflict.

    4) At the end when we collect many conflicts together we have to got a good solution+ my/ your PEACE

  • Nsengiyumva K Fred on March 3, 2017 at 6:49 pm

    Yes,I agree because the first conflict is you, and the first peace is you,it is possible to brought conflict it,s also to brought PEACE when we are together

  • Rod on March 19, 2017 at 7:52 am

    Hmmm…I’m too new to JG’s work to comment on it other than to say that the idea that the genesis of our difficulties lies within us, isn’t a new one and is something of a statement of the obvious. Nevertheless, it’s not a perception that is universally accepted and general behaviour and rhetoric tends to show that it’s possibly a minority viewpoint throughout the world.
    Speaking from the experience of thirty years of contact with literally thousands of children, the ubiquity of the phrase, “He/she made me hit/fight/break/whatevah…” indicates the commonality of the belief that the crap in one’s life is the “fault” of other people. The thing about beliefs is that (a) their value is in whether or not they deliver the outcomes we want, not in whether or not they’re true…and…(b) there’s usually a helluva load of emotional investment backing them up… That’s why we frequently experience situations where, from our perspective, someone’s belief appears ludicrous and we wonder how they can seriously hold such an idea, while, to them, we’re obviously so misguided as to be possibly certifiable.
    The abandonment of this belief implies the acceptance of full responsibility for our own thinking and perceptions i.e, if our life experience is crappy it’s our responsibility (not “fault”).
    With regard to the ideas presented by JG, the question of whether or not they’re “true” isn’t the issue. They’re at least as good (and perhaps better) as any other scenario presented so far. However, the trick, if it can be pulled off, is getting those idea across to the world and his wife. Working one’s way through the material as it’s presented requires a certain “zen-state” mindset, not commonly met out in the general motley. I’d be interested to read some commentary on this as to whether or not this perception has a validity worth consideration.

    • Michael on May 25, 2017 at 8:25 am

      Getting the message across to the world and his wife, as Rod puts it, is for sure not an easy thing since it do requires a certain amount of concentration and interest to grasp the entire concept of the main idea…simplifying the revolutionizing message by not putting the word “conflict” into it’s proper perspective of at least five levels (look up Speed Leas) will IMO not make it any easier, rather the opposite… incorporation, comparison and relativisation of other ways of thinking will on the other hand go a long way of getting the message across…

  • Adolf Zender on March 19, 2017 at 9:27 am

    Dear fellow human beings,
    “The human condition”: Knowing that the condition occurred when we traded good old-fashioned instinct, that served man well until the evolutionary process equipped us with the wonderful thing called consciousness. This dilemma of having the ability to make choices can be for many humans an overwhelming thought. To realize that we are in control or think we are in control makes us very uncomfortable, to the point we are at now, that we could call this malaise a psychosis of our time.
    The realization that this condition is caused by our biological make-up is in itself in my opinion not sufficient to rid ourselves magically from the condition. It is a bit of wishful thinking, idealism or at best, a dream come true.
    Thinking it through logically, if that was so, we would arrive at the ideal state sooner than is the case now. If any headway is being made, I can’t see any evidence of it. The problem remains humanity is still not rid of the condition.

    • nomad on March 20, 2017 at 10:33 am

      The absolutely wonderful thing about Jeremy Griffith’s work is that he provides the ‘based in first principles’, rational, biological explanation for why humans became angry, egocentric and alienated. There is no leap of faith required, or belief system, or trick, or some sort of mind-quelling discipline to it, it is just a logical explanation of why we are the way we are. But the magical thing about it, is that it at last enables humans to be secure in their self-worth. Which means all those insecure coping mechanisms (our anger, egocentricity and alienation) are rendered redundant.
      Despite this being the best news ever, there is a huge resistance to it, because we all learnt to avoid any deep discussion of the human condition at an early age, because thinking about it raised the terrifying possibility that we were not ‘good’. And so, even though Jeremy’s explanation defends humans at the deepest level, people are so habituated to living in denial of the subject that they can’t hear what is being said, or they can hear it and it terrifies them and they block it out. But that is not a reflection of the validity of the ideas, or their potency. It just means that it will take time for the world to realise it is safe to go there now.
      Chapter 2:2 of FREEDOM on our mortal fear of the human condition is a very relevant read.

  • Songbird on March 25, 2017 at 4:57 am

    I think Understanding “The Human Condition” is only the first step to change, accepting personal responsibility is second, but change is a Very Hard and complicated process! It takes Constant Vigilance of your thoughts “Mindfulness”and Actions! You literally MUST rewire your brain, neural network patterns! Most of our thought processes are subconscious so change takes work at the subconscious level. Subliminal learning, self-hypnosis, Meditation. Your brain needs to reach alpha and Gamma states to rewire it for change. This is WHY it will be difficult to create change on a large scale, worldwide level! The whole society needs to be REPROGRAMMED! Yes, we must “Be The Change” first! Then “Teach the children the truth. It will be a generational process! It has to start here and NOW!

    • antoonna on November 14, 2017 at 11:14 pm

  • Nicoleta I Neagoy on May 12, 2017 at 1:09 am

    It is good to see that so many are interested in joining a world peace consciousness. I too have not read the book just snippets from your mailings.
    So far, as I too am writing a book, I know with my entire being that the peace we seek outside of ourselves myst first begin within.
    In the within lies the very light of knowing the truth as it is revealed to us by our Almighty God.
    That said, I know many will balk.
    Without this simple realization, the unveiling of all there is misses the anchor of reality.

  • abi on May 12, 2017 at 8:48 am

    Yes bringing peace to the world can only happen if we each bring peace to our individual lives, because all the war and suffering in the world is caused by us – by our angry egocentric selfish condition. And it the rational, biological explanation and resolution of that state — the human condition — that Jeremy Griffith presents in his books. And with our ‘dark side’ explained, we can now reconcile with the cooperative ideals, which is what we have had to deify as ‘God’. Truly this is amazing work!

    It appears to me that systems thinking acknowledges the complexity and uncertainty of the human system, including the mental model of psychosis and It’s claimed ‘split offs’ of psychological ‘parts’. I would argue that there are often many causes and effects to ‘the human condition, including the para-sympathetic and the sympathetic nervous system. Environmental disturbance, including mental and physical and trauma, inequality, pollution, poverty and more, in opposition to the disputed American neurological mode. Alienation and in my view, capitalism, are also psychosis interlinked in reinforcement feedback loops. Or, alternatively, self- regulated ‘conscious wholeness’ of the human system, learnt from drawing a balancing feedback loop based on actions of where you are to where you want to be.

  • Marina on July 28, 2017 at 6:44 pm

    Who’s going to start first …. Reconciliation ???

  • Lesley on July 28, 2017 at 7:12 pm

    I’m loving the book but I think it’s only part of the answer. If this is all a game and I believe it is, then nothing will change for the better until most humans are on board. To bring in the positive, (a better world), you first have to remove the negative, (now). To show most humans the true spiritual path you have to show them that negative. If we all woke up tomorrow and the world was perfect then before long it would be back to now.

    How would they have learnt anything? Gruelling as it can be, this is the lesson. If you believe that we are spirits with a body, then in a way the only way to evolve into a more spiritual nature is to suffer so that we can evolve.

    Children today are coming pre equipped with a new mind set, with a new intelligence, they don’t need to throw off the insane beliefs of previous generations they already see the insanity for what it is, insanity of the human spirit.

    We will evolve, it’s written in the ancient teachings, we just have to hang on tight it’s a bumpy ride.

  • Joy on July 29, 2017 at 9:15 am

    If you get to the source of a problem you can fix it and amazingly this is what Jeremy Griffith has done. He has got to the source of our selfish and destructive behaviour so we can fix it because we aren’t genetically hard-wired to be warlike we are genetically wired to be social. Our aggression is driven by our psychology not our genes. Intrigued….. read Freedom it answers all the questions about human behaviour and conflict and empowers us as individuals to help make the change the world so desperately needs and we so desperately want. Like the line on WTM website says:–It is the responsibility of every human now to understand the human condition.

  • SQ Esq on August 4, 2017 at 6:54 pm

    This is more on point! Excellent.

  • Alastair Aguter on August 5, 2017 at 1:58 am

    Human Conflict can come to an end ,but it is a very long process to understand what is folly and nonsense. The greatest barrier at this time is greed and ignorance. Until the human story and journey begins to focus on collective effort for the advancement of humanity and the preservation of all life. The events regarding conflict will continue and on a greater scale as we on this Earth finally start to become a global society which is progress.

    Human beings need to understand and respect the covenant of Natural Law, this is to create life, to evolve and refine, to eventually through the construct of the DNA gene pool, will reach the goal that is set for all life forms and that is to seek simplistic perfection.

    Human beings need to grow up, material possessions all eventually turn to rust and dust, at the end of ones physical life gasping for breath, a human craves life, not details of a bank balance or a material item of no consequence.

You are clearly smart enough to grasp the concept , if presented in your native tongue . Please , don’t give up , just yet !?!

    I understand the cyncism – been there done that, but there is a logic underpinning the WTM’s apparent idealism that I find very compelling. And gives me genuine hope. It is worth looking deeper.

  • Cory on September 8, 2017 at 9:45 pm

    where is the evidence that humans developed a conscious mind 2 million years ago? And just where does are conscious mind come from? Did we wake up with it one day some 2 million years ago? Doubtful…we are created beings…our DNA says so…

    • Jerry on September 10, 2017 at 1:23 pm

      Great questions Cory.

      The beginning of Chapter 8 of FREEDOM, in paragraph 705, there is a picture of the skull sizes of our various ape ancestors – starting from the australopithecines, with a small skull and then leading up to us modern humans, who have a much larger skull. This chart shows the development of humans needing larger skulls to house larger brains as a result of ever increasing conscious understanding over millions of years. But at around the 2 million years ago mark there is a large jump in skull size indicating the emergence of humans fully conscious mind and with it, the human condition. Evidence that humans developed a fully conscious mind 2 million years ago (and with it the emergence of the human condition i.e. when we changed from being instinct managed to intellect managed) is explained further in paragraph 707 of FREEDOM:

      “In examining this sequence it is apparent that a sudden increase in the size of the brain case, and by inference the brain’s volume, occurred around 2 million years ago. A larger brain case was needed to house a larger ‘association cortex’. As explained in pars 633-639, the ability to ‘associate’ information is what made it possible to reason how experiences are related, learn to understand and become conscious of, or aware of, or intelligent about, the relationship between events that occur through time. It follows that the development of a larger association cortex meant that a greatly increased need for understanding had emerged, which we are now able to explain would have resulted from the emergence of the dilemma of the human condition, where only self-understanding could bring an end to all the psychological upset that condition has produced and which has been so crippling of our species’ development and that of our own lives. The inference we can take from this evidence is that the human condition became a full-blown problem some 2 million years ago with the emergence of Homo.”

      In terms of “..where does our conscious mind come from?”, it is explained in detail in Chapter 7 of FREEDOM, which is titled ‘What is Consciousness, and Why, How and When Did Humans’ Unique Conscious Mind Emerge?’

      In short, the conscious mind comes from millions of years of genetic development in our primate ancestors that, due to several unique factors specific to our genetic heritage i.e. ideal nursery conditions, matriarchal society etc, it removed the genetic “must-be-selfish-in-order-to-survive” block in our brains which previously had prevented us from becoming fully aware or conscious of the way events are related through time. This removal of the “block” allowed us to become fully aware of or CONSCIOUS of the events occurring around us in the world sufficiently enough to manage those events.

      To boil it down ever further, from paragraph 632 and 650 of FREEDOM: “…the nerve-based learning system (unlike the gene-based learning system) can associate information, reason how experiences are related, learn to understand and become CONSCIOUS of the relationship of events that occur through time.” and “Consciousness is amazing but it is simply a result of memory which allows us to understand cause and effect”

      So what you’re alluding to is absolutely right…It took many years of development and certainly didn’t happen overnight!

      Also, as mentioned in FREEDOM, animals too, while not being fully conscious like us, have varying levels of consciousness, from paragraph 425 of FREEDOM:

      “(Incidentally, people wonder how we can know that other species, like dolphins and elephants, aren’t fully conscious like humans are. As just explained, developing consciousness depends on overcoming the competitive, selfish ‘animal condition’ and becoming orientated to selflessness, so if you are still preoccupied with selfish, competitive dominance, as other animals are, you can’t become fully conscious. Indeed, as all good animal trainers know, the key to managing and training non-human animal species, of both sexes, is to recognise that their great preoccupation is in achieving dominance whenever possible. Humans’ deepest preoccupation, however, is with giving and receiving selfless love, a preoccupation we mistakenly project onto other animals, especially our pets, resulting in all the problems we have in managing them effectively. Animals are still victims of the ‘animal condition’, and so controlling them requires asserting dominance. If other animal species had achieved full consciousness they would not still be stranded in a world dictated by the rules of a selfish, competitive dominance hierarchy; they would be as preoccupied by giving and receiving love as we humans fundamentally are.)”

      Consciousness has traditionally been such a tricky and abstract subject (for good reason as explained in FREEDOM) but with the human condition now explained it makes it much simpler to understand! Hope this is helpful…

  • Richard on September 23, 2017 at 8:23 am

    The current state of world affairs is quite overwhelming and is on a knife edge, with incredible power at the fingertips of mentally deranged apes surrounded by braindead ‘yes-men’. Just look at the photos coming out of North Korea of Kim Jung and his deputies – makes me gag.
    The quote from Neville is spot-on – the crises we face ARE indeed man-made, their causes ARE psychological, and the answer MUST come from understanding the human condition, which I believe Griffith HAS BEEN ABLE TO DO. it’s that road or a road of ignorance and self destruction.
    Chapter 8 of Freedom is brilliant – “The Greatest, Most Heroic Story Ever Told: Humanity’s Journey from Ignorance to Enlightenment”. it’s around 280 pages but it’s well worth it once you understand the basic tenets of Griffiths’ explanation. it really does get to the bottom of the well.

      I could not agree more with your comments Richard! Chapter 8 is uplifting…!

      Jeremy has worked it out and now it’s a matter for us all to get the information out there. It’s no easy task as the fine people at the WTM will attest. I have been encouraging my wife and daughters to read the book for well over three years, as yet to no avail…

  • Lourdes on October 17, 2017 at 3:07 pm

    Yes, we are all that you say, but THAT is not all we are. There is much more deep down about us that we are not (oh, well, most of us!) exploring and allowing it all out in this beautiful World, right here on Planet Earth.

    This represents quiet well the world in which we have been living but I believe that Human Beings are on this Earth Plane to learn and practice knowledge the best they can. Actually, we found out that the brain by itself try to keep going as a third dimensional operating system. If we dig a bit, we find that with love emanating from our hearth toward ourselves we can find the way to transmit it to everybody else on our Earth Plane, knowing that we can give only what we own. With compassion, love and faith, we can manifest the intent to help our beautifull planet to finally find lasting peace.

  • Jon Morgan-Parker on December 10, 2017 at 4:24 pm

    Hi, to cut a long story short. I have come from a terrible upbringing. My parents both beat me and hurt me as a child. I joined the military and did 9 years service. Throughout my life, I have watched and experienced how people can treat each other. How evil and nasty this world really is. Politics is infuriating and depressing at the same time. I have always believed this planet is a self-regulating living organism. That sounds a bit ” way out there”. But the more I learned about it, the more I understand it. As I have grown older, I’m 52 now. The more I have observed, through my Army training in observational behaviour etc…The more I have noticed how deeply dark and selfish humans can be towards each other. The all-encompassing Secret Military complex in USA…and its driven behaviour towards war. How humans can treat the planet with their disgusting pollutions and litter. How the Oceans are treated like the planets dumping grounds. It isn’t a tip or refuse site. It is the lungs of our planet as well as the forests on land. Plankton releases over 70% of our oxygen into our atmosphere! Yet the oceans are treated with such disdain and abuse! The human race is heading for an all-time disaster, just from the way they treat the ground beneath their feet. I once read a book called ” boiling a frog”. It really opened my eyes into how humans are being treated and how they treat each other. If You put a frog into boiling water and it will immediately jump out! However, if you place the same frog in a bowl of cool water and steadily increase the water temperature? The frog will stay there until the water actually boils it to death! Well, I have always believed the human race is heading in the same way. You don’t need the brains of an Arch Bishop to observe and notice just how bad it has become. Well certainly here in UK! As well as observing human actions throughout the world. I feel there will have to be a catastrophic threat to the planet or the human race before everyone wakes up and smells the coffee. Until then, they will continue to be the way it is now! Just my opinions.
    I’m not on drugs and I find myself almost removed from society at times and stepped back like in a dream where I see things in the future that is a catastrophic event where there is no electricity, no world order, no control, no Government control. Complete desolation of the world and the human race. It certainly feels like it is heading that way. So many murders, child abuse, crime and grime. The Human race is heading into Hell. But it will learn only from disastrous events.

    Hi Sue, see Freedom Essay 3 which presents the full conflict-ending biological explanation of the human condition and that explanation is evidenced in great detail throughout Jeremy’s books, ‘FREEDOM: The End of The Human Condition’ and it’s summary ‘Transform Your Life and Save The World’, both freely available to download on the WTM homepage: http://www.humancondition.com. And yes you will find links to different philosophies. You may like to use the search function in the top right corner of the website to look up Buddhism.

    Human nature has, in the past, taken the, ‘ambulance at the bottom of the cliff’ but we can’t continue that as it present’s people from learning the necessary skills they haven’t been taught or had roll-modelled around them.
    My feeling is, because most children from the age of 4-6yrs spend around 5 hrs away from their home environment the schools are the ones who need to teach and role model, appropriate, honest, and ‘useful for survival, ways of coping, and ‘being’, while being bought up,
    Adult s aren’t effective unless they roll model, healthy, appropriate behaviour, so they ‘practice what they preach’. I look forward to reading your book. I am writing one on a similar vein.

    Something about the quick glimpse I had seen stuck with me for the last two weeks, I knew I was going to need some time, hours probably, to look. WOW! I’m now at the other end of 4 hours of watching everything I could find, I need more lol, a lot more, I am very interested, will now be getting a hard copy of freedom, asap! I’ve been called childish all my life (50 yrs) for believing people are essentially good. Turns out there may something to it haha.

  • Peter Byron on January 26, 2018 at 7:29 pm

    Understanding the human condition is a step in the right direction but the hurdles I see include Dogma and indifference.
    And it seems to me that humans seem hard wired mentally. While some are altruistic, others are manipulative and greedy. Those are the ones running countries and the large corporations, the ones who maintain poverty to control the masses.
    We need to evolve.

    No he leido el libro, ni he visto ningun video, solo me baso y comento lo que realmente veo de estado de este mundo. punto 1: la destruccion atomica que esta sucediendo, lo lamentable es que el resto del mundo solo observa. Yo pienso que le tienen miedo a esos destructores y no entiendo porque no hacen nada, teniendo la autoridady poder para corregir los errores de los demas, ya que si nos destruye a los que reaacionamos contra los destructores, es lo mismo que sucede si no hacemos nada. Por lo cual debemos detener a los que solo actuan con la destruccion, ya que ni ellos mismos no tendran donde vivir. Eso hace resaltar que esa persona destructora no tiene razonamiento humano, pero lo mas fatal de imaginar lo retrasados mentales que son las personas que autorizan y defienden las resaltantes fallas humanas que tiene los destructores…………………………….estos tema son muy amplios y requieren muchas charlas.

  • Lorn McCausland on February 3, 2018 at 4:32 am

    How to achieve consciousness in the collective human condition becomes a powerful question? The answer, Buddha might say is about the lesson in the happenings in front of us now. To look is to see. I suppose our examples in this time are all about money and politics. Institutions are propped up with economic illusions. A tax collection feeds the bank that doles out debt or loans to corporations and people for monthly payments giving “paper” it’s so called worth. This false idol or this economic system is broken. Corruption, money and greed can never nurture the human condition with the love of the heart and soul. The human condition longs for security, purpose, validation and peace of mind. “Money Can’t buy me Love” beautiful Beatles lyric. Our relationship with the planet is screaming for love. Likened to the “MeToo Movement” and “Black Lives Matter” the lesson is right there. We need to change our relationships. We need to be examples of caring and love. “Power” over the planet or others for unlimited personal delusions of short-term satisfaction has degraded the human condition – forgiveness puts empathy and caring into the equation of love for us all including those deluded by our broken systemized corporate power systems – the racists, the politicians, the elites and teaches us a better way toward a vision or rather a “mission statement” with eternal possibilities. In the search for Love “outside” of ourselves there is no wrong way – just empty results. By looking “inside” our hearts we uncover the true being of our relationship with all things living. Dismantling the false idol of “Bling” is as simple as knowing it never existed (in a living form). Suddenly we are left to ourselves and the planet for sustanence and in that instant we become viable as the intention described by the Rumi’s and Horace’s and gurus of centuries past. “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free”

    I wish I knew how
    It would feel to be free
    I wish I could break
    All the chains holding me
    I wish I could say
    All the things that I should say
    Say ’em loud say ’em clear
    For the whole round world to hear

    I wish I could share
    All the love that’s in my heart
    Remove all the bars
    That keep us apart
    I wish you could know
    What it means to be me
    Then you’d see and agree
    That every man should be free

    I wish I could give
    All I’m longin’ to give
    I wish I could live
    Like I’m longin’ to live
    I wish I could do
    All the things that I can do
    Though I’m way overdue
    I’d be starting anew.

    Well I wish I could be like a bird in the sky
    How sweet it would be
    If I found I could fly
    I’d soar to the sun
    And look down at the sea
    And I sing ’cause I know
    How it feels to be free

  • Ethan on February 6, 2018 at 9:24 am

    The beauty of this solution is that it brings about a spiritual change but it is totally rational and logical. There is no leap of faith. Just follow the logic that is in the 3rd Email and you can see that we are all defended at last, and so we don’t have to keep struggling and fighting and proving our worth. And when that is removed, the ‘spiritual’ can come in. And I don’t mean anything supernatural by that, I just mean love and sensitivity.

  • Alexis Grasso on March 4, 2018 at 11:35 pm

    I see a different perspective. A young species, we are evolving. Some cultures are still at the tribal [prepubescent] level [ie Mid-East]; some are young adult, conscious level [North. Europe]; some, at adolescent, self-obsessed level [USA]. There is lack of understanding and friction between mind-sets, and it is really the responsibility of the most highly evolved to engineer solutions. We ALL need to become adults, tho’ this need is invisible to the ‘child.’ Loving guidance, mediation, and the exemplary behavior of the adult is called for. [See ‘Spiral Dynamics’, Graves & Beck.]
    Carl Sagan wondered if ANY sentient species in the Universe EVER survived its heedless, reckless, selfish adolescence. Good question!

    • Liam on March 19, 2018 at 7:23 pm

      Hi Alexis. I see you refer to the stages that different cultures are at evolving toward adulthood. I am not sure if you have read it or not but I highly recommend reading Freedom, Chapter 8:16E The differences in alienation between ‘races’ (ethnic groups) of humans. As to the question you reference posed by Carl Sagan, I know in my bones that once this explanation of the human condition is disseminated globally we will be able to answer the question in the affirmative that we (sentient human species on planet earth) have survived our necessarily selfish adolescence and can mature to a selfless adulthood.

  • Lee Canham on March 16, 2018 at 9:35 pm

    Humanity has at some point experienced peace, we strive for peace, we couldn’t strive for something we know nothing about or feel something for.
    My question is.. What more did we want when we already had peace and why wasn’t it enough..
    If Humanity found it again.. The odds are we would make the same mistake.. And lost we would be again.
    But even we found it for a brief moment.. Wouldn’t that be nice.

    • Conrad on March 17, 2018 at 12:05 pm

      They’re some really interesting thoughts Lee. As you say “Humanity has at some point experienced peace” and “why wasn’t it enough”?. I suppose “peace” in the context that you’re talking about is reference to a time when humanity was NOT deeply psychologically troubled but was completely aligned/in-tune with each other and all of the natural world i.e. before we became conscious. As explained in detail in Chapter 5 of FREEDOM, our pre-conscious primate forebears lived in a completely loving, cooperative, harmonious, conflict-free, untroubled, “peaceful” state. The instinctive memory we carry of this incredible time is what we call our soul. But, as you mention above “what more did we want when we already had peace and why wasn’t it enough”?. The reason we “turned our back on peace” was because we became FULLY CONSCIOUS (via the love-indoctrination process explained in Chapter 5), which meant that as a species we had a new way to manage our lives i.e. the conscious mind, that was in direct defiance with our long established instincts. It is this battle between our instincts and our newly formed intellect that “disturbed the peace” and led to the deeply troubled state of the human condition. I think the whole of the human race would agree with your sentiment that “wouldn’t [it] be nice” to return to a state of peace! But that will only happen if these two elements of ourselves (our instinct and intellect) are reconciled. And while it may seem unbelievable to say this but that is EXACTLY what this explanation of the human condition does!!! For the first time in human history we can be completely reconciled with our instincts!!! And while it will take some time for these understandings to be digested/appreciated/adopted, we can immediately know in our bones that we are fundamentally good and soak up the excitement that the building of a peaceful world will inevitably bring.

    • Roger on March 17, 2018 at 12:41 pm

      Hi Lee,
      When I think about your questions they all tend to be answered by 3 explanations of this information and I’m sorry I go a bit back and forth between them.
      Something that I find helpful is having a visual picture of our human journey in my mind, because there is a purpose to life on earth and the human equation, our development hasn’t just been random. The picture in Freedom on page 180 gives you an awesome visual of that timeline.
      It also helps to explain / show why we wouldn’t make the same mistake because we would be returning to a cooperative, idealistic state with knowledge, a capacity to explain and understand the difference between how instincts and intellect process information. Secure for the first time since the human condition began and no need for the destructive behaviours that go with it.

      The awesome picture of ‘Humanity’s Journey from Ignorance to Enlightenment’ on page 180 of Freedom
      The Adam Stalk story in Essay 3 Part 2 or page 144 in Freedom
      Integrative Meaning or ‘God’ … Essay 23 and Chapter 4:2 The obvious truth of the development of order of mater

      In our perfectly cooperative instinctive state between 2 and 7 million years ago (which our conscience is a reflection of) we didn’t want anything, like all instinctive animals we lived in a genetic framework of requiring “food shelter and a mate”.
      Explained in essay 21.
      It was the emergence of our conscious mind that lead to the conflict between instinct and intellect, and all the subsequent upset behaviour.
      Again the Adam Stalk story is the overview but essay 23 explains it in detail.
      I hope that was helpful … it was a good question and the explanation of Integrative Meaning or The Development of Order of Mater is one of my favourite subjects to read about.

    • Aileen on March 19, 2018 at 4:05 pm

      Hi Lee, In that early peaceful way of being we lacked one thing, knowledge. We had no knowledge, no understanding, no appreciation for our way of being or for the way of being of other species. We did not KNOW we were peaceful, co-operative, and loving, we simply were. What evolution gave us was the opportunity to know and appreciate what we (truly) are. It is hard, now, to imagine a time when we did not have the ability to frame a thought, let alone ask a question such as yours: In that sense, your question IS your answer. How could we understand what we (truly) are, except by learning of what we are not. (What meaning has peace if you are unaware of conflict?) The integration of our instinctual self with our intellectual self will be a powerful event. Our intellectual self will be the forward scout, the pioneer that takes us beyond our current self-imposed limitations, Our instinctual self will be the moral compass that ensures outcomes are peaceful, co-operative and loving in nature…and all of it will be a conscious choice. We will know (understand, appreciate) and experience (feel) what it is to be peaceful.

    • Liam on March 19, 2018 at 7:58 pm

      Hi Lee. To my way of thinking a really meaningful observation and question. I can’t add much the really helpful answers below. All I wanted to say is that given where you are coming from in your thinking, I believe that you will find the information presented by WTM deeply rewarding and life changing . Amongst other things, its work provides a compelling argument of our species experienced a prior peace and that we are striving for the same perhaps despite appearances. In so doing affirming your thinking or intuition. Moreover, I think you will find reassurance then jubilation on realising that with the human condition solved we will not make the same mistake again and the peace produced will be endless rather than of a brief moment.

  • Aileen on March 19, 2018 at 3:07 pm

    I am slowly making my way through FREEDOM. I am fascinated by the concept of our two learning systems and the ensuing conflict that arises from them. Came a point where I felt I needed to expand my understanding of the terms neurosis and psychosis. I came across the following audio file by J.-M. Kucsynski and was blown away by his description.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vw3-MtCS3r8&feature=youtu.be

    I’ve transcribed it below for those who prefer to read. I hope it is as enlightening to others as it was to me.
    The parallells with Jeremy Griffiths explanation of our human condition are obvious.

    Psychosis V’s Neurosis
    Transcription of an excerpt from the audio-book Neurosis and Psychosis
    by J.-M. Kuczynski
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vw3-MtCS3r8&feature=youtu.be

    Psychosis is a mental impairment that is precipitated and sustained by a break with external reality. Neurosis is a mental impairment that is precipitated and sustained by a break with one’s emotional condition.

    The neurotic flees from his emotions. The psychotic flees from reality.

    Neurosis may lead to a blunting of one’s awareness of certain aspects of external reality but any such loss of awareness is subordinate to loss of awareness of one’s emotional condition. Similarly, psychosis may lead to a disruption in one’s understanding of one’s emotional condition but any such disturbance is subordinate to the psychotic’s loss of awareness of external reality.

    Though symmetrical in the just described respects, neurosis and psychosis are ultimately NOT mirror images of each other.

    This is a consequence of the fact that psychosis involves a partial regression to a condition of psychological infancy, the operative term being partial. An infant is not psychotic. The reason is that the infants psychological integration is not simultaneously that of and adult and and an infant. It is simply that of an infant. For this reason the infants psychological condition is integrated and healthy, even though the infant’s understanding of reality is more subjective, and therefore more projective than that of the adult psychotic. The adult psychotic on the other hand has the psychological architecture of an adult as well as an infant, therefore the psychotic has two entirely distinct and incompatible ways of processing information. He does not have a unified value system. He does not have a unified understanding of how to implement such values as he has. His psychological condition is therefore one of utter disarray. Therein lies the peculiarly damaging nature of psychosis.

    Nothing comparable holds of the neurotic.

    Neurosis is about containing threats to one’s integration by repressing them. To repress a conceit is not to bury one’s knowledge of it in the unconscious it is rather to bury one’s knowledge of its emotional valence in the unconscious. As a result the neurotics condition is one of relatively unimpaired intellectual awareness. In fact, in some circumscribed ways it may even be a condition of heightened intellectual awareness owing to the fact that the neurotic is likely to compensate for his impoverished emotional state by hyper-perfecting his intellect. Moreover, by stripping the contents of consciousness of their emotional valences the neurotic guarantees that he has a hyper-stable, though also, an ossified psyche.

    The essence of psychosis is an inability to organise consciously experienced emotion, The essence of neurosis is an inability to HAVE consciously experienced emotions. The psychotic is paralysed by the super- abundance of emotion. The neurotic is paralysed by the lack of it.

  • Claire on March 23, 2018 at 12:11 pm

    Can you explain the statement “when we human developed a conscious mind, some 2 MILLION YEARS AGO”?
    According to all available information I can find, ‘we humans’ didn’t appear until 200,000 years ago. A rather large gap, wouldn’t you say?

    • PaulM on March 23, 2018 at 1:38 pm

      Claire, I think you will find that in this context ‘we humans’ refers to our ancestor homo habilis, who lived from approximately 2.4 to 1.4 million years ago . Certainly modern humans, homo sapiens sapiens, did not appear until some 200,000 years ago, however the genus ‘homo’ means ‘human’, so the much older homo habilis were also technically humans. Chapter 8 of Mr Griffith’s book Freedom provides a very insightful commentary on humanity’s evolutionary journey.

  • Theo de Wijs on April 13, 2018 at 8:25 pm

    Very important psychiatric and philosophic essay. But in my view there is another way to free the world of: dishonesty, deceite, crime, threat, and ignorance. The benifit we gain is: no more wars, honesty is standard, no more crimes, easy learning, and awareness who is a real authority. All relationships will change, all the world changes. A real world revolution.

    In the present we are very concerned about our privacy. Every day the media tells us how we are threatened by losing our privacy and what the wrong kind of people can do with your data. But more and more, by the opportunities of the internet and more and more sophisticated devices we lose bit by bit our privacy.
    So what would happen if we could make the final step: Direct acces to each others mind? The ability to read thoughts and feelings of each other? And better be able to tune in on a specific person. Like when we are standing inside a big crowd of people and talking to your companion. You could hear the conversation around you, but you tune in to your companion and the other voices become background noise. The best thing would be that we would be able to tune in to anyone in the world like tuning on a frequency scale of an electronic device as how we now can talk and see each other at the other side of the world by the present electronic devices.
    Result: The leaders of the most powerful nations would know each others thoughts and feelings. Dishonesty could not exist since we could read every thought and feeling. War could not exist. All eventually plans would be known to either party. Fake leaders would fall through the ice immediately. Crime was impossible because everybody could know who would want to do it. Learning between a teacher and a pupil would be much easier as sharing experiences would be too. Love could only be honest. A huge change would happen in our sexual behavior. What are now our secrets would then be common and normal, so it frees us to full exploitation of who we are.
    In short: All relations would change. The biggest change would be the international relationships and the government – citizen relationship. I see the relationship between parents and children improve and the relationships between life partners would be more free of the obstructions we see nowadays.
    The society would not be more free, because we would gradually develope a human standard which would be more or less of a compulsory character. But in my view this would be a minor disadvantage compared to the benfits of peace, honesty and understanding.

    The only thing is: Would it ever be possible to create a device which makes it possible to read and feel each others minds?

    • Tommy on April 15, 2018 at 11:00 am

      As you get more familiar with the WTM’s information Theo you it will begin to dawn on you, as it did to me, that the human condition is at the bottom of all the world’s problems. To solve all the suffering and horror in our lives and our world we must be able to make sense of the source of it all, which is the psychological battle going on in each of us. You will see that biologically understanding ourselves is honestly the only way we can free the world of all the ‘dishonesty, deceit, crime, threat and ignorance’ as you describe. As the essay above says, “Basically, when we humans developed a conscious mind some 2 million years ago, a battle unavoidably developed between it and our already established instincts. The result of this conflict between our instinct and intellect was that we became psychologically defensive, angry, alienated and egocentric — the upset state we refer to as the human condition. But now that we can explain and understand this conflict, all those insecure, defensive behaviours are obsoleted, brought to an end, and we free ourselves from the human condition.” While we were under the duress of the human condition it was an immensely preoccupying and soul-deadening state and only became more and more so the older we got as an individual or as a whole species (essay 55 ‘Endgame for the human race’ is very insightful in this regard). But now this information is in the world we can be free of the whole immensely preoccupying, upsetting state of the human condition, we can be transformed ‘letting the wings of our great potential unfold in the sunshine of relieving understanding to reveal the fabulously beautiful creatures we really are’ (to quote ‘Freedom’ para 1258). This will only grow and grow the more we move past this age where our search for meaning reigned supreme, because understanding of our true meaning and how we fit into the whole of life has been found! Jeremy writes a lot about the soul sensitivity that we have lost access to but can be released now through Chapter 8 and 9 especially in ‘Freedom’, for example Chapter 8.11C, and I think you will find this incredibly fulfilling.

    • melania constantinescu on April 28, 2018 at 3:53 am

      I translated your comment Denord and wanted to say that this biological explanation works at the source of why there is even crime in the first place. To end crime and indeed all the suffering on Earth we had to understand why it all began, where it all comes from. That is what this information answers, why we are so divisively behaved when the ideals are to be cooperative. It brings understanding to the human condition which is an absolutely phenomenal breakthrough!

  • Darius on May 11, 2018 at 6:05 pm

    I have not read essays and yet, i understand completely the importance of healthy positive change as humans fullfill their greatest potential: survival. We must realize the fullness of the universe and humbly accept our place in the greater connectedness of all things.
    I am a composer and have this very moment had an awakening within and without my very being. I suggest that these teachings and observations be elevated and enhanced with the power of theatrical exposition. I intend to be inspired by each essay and will craft a musical composition as well as an accompanied soundscape should any artistic endeavors be focused and creatively illustrated via film and video. This will have application for both live theater as well as cinematic history.

    In the USA we educate our people & we don’t let our people starve. That’s why not what you said.

    • Ake Johanson on November 16, 2019 at 2:49 am

      We don’t let our people starve? Read facts. In 2017, 40 million people struggled with hunger in the United States.
      The USDA defines “food insecurity” as the lack of access, at times, to enough food for all household members. In 2017, an estimated 15 million households were food insecure.
      In America, hunger is caused by poverty and financial resources at both the national and local levels.

    Good Day
    i agree 100% on contents
    Question is how do we let our leaders in high places to action correction plans.I have been entrusted with Almighty God’s Salvation Plan for His Planet Earth in March to restore the Earth to its pristine condition when He made man in His Own Image.the hole in His Planet we are passionately making bigger..

    Without our governments involvement,it is a difficult uphill battle,South Africas unemployment rate is close to 30%,We have plenty graduates without job opportunities,the poor are getting poorer,Corruption is rife in all areas in the Business world.Racial tensions and frustrations,violence are mounting to Dangerous levels,Substandard service delivery to the poor masses have become the norm.

    we have become Lord over others
    have a Blessed Day
    May AbbaFather Supreme God have Mercy ,Forgive,Love us through His Dearly Beloved Son,Jesus Christ and bring us back to everlasting life Amen
    Many Thanks
    God Bless

      Hi Ajith, The suffering is immense everywhere on the planet but I do really feel for you in South Africa. There is only one way out of the mess and that is through this understanding of the human condition. Everything else has failed to make any difference at all, humanity needs self-understanding to change, and we need it fast I agree. This is a new idea Ajith, in it’s pioneer stages so the current leaders in society are no doubt yet to hear about these breakthrough ideas, so the priority for those of us who do know their significance is obviously to make as many people aware of them as possible — and also to help people through their natural denial and fear of the whole subject of the human condition. This information is for everyone, we can all be free from the human condition and our lives and planet can be totally transformed, but I see the situation as none of us are free until we are all free. These FAQs I find really helpful when I am talking to new people

    Exciting, releiving and comforting to know that we now have the answers to why we humans have been so divisively behaved. So at odds with the ideals of life and the world around us. To understand the root cause of our troubled state and through that understanding begin to psychologically rehabilitate ourselves and repair the planet. It will mean the end of conflict as we know it as the conflict in our heads will begin to stop. Therefore the need to take up arms will dissipate and such crises will cease to stop.

    These findings by J Griffiths are a nothing short of a God sent, a life saver and indeed a planet saver. Its exactly what each and everyone of us has been searching for.

    Very interesting content. I would like to know more.

    Humanity is never fully discovered

    • Susy on July 19, 2018 at 2:50 pm

      Until now Jackson! Humanity is now nothing less than fully biologically explained, defended, redeemed and liberated thanks to the work of Jeremy Griffith and the WTM. I know it’s hard to believe after so long suffering under the human condition but it’s actually 100% true!

  • AJITH HARICHURAN on July 22, 2018 at 11:58 pm

    Thank You God Bless
    Hi , plenty can be achieved with the help of our Governments . setting aside 10% of total monthly gross operating costs on all sectors of the working economy. Military spending ,Govt.spending, Rich and famous, entertainment houses, professionals, faith houses, education bodies, food supply chains , finance institutions every successful business ventures,etc,etc

    However to be corruption free it has to be fully transparent and run by at least 7 executives with as at least 7 sub structures if necessary and fully accountable or risk being replaced on a month to month basis.
    Thank You
    Kind regards

    Unless man recognizes that original sin is the cause and that Christ is the redeemer, nothing will be solved !!

    • RJ on January 25, 2019 at 8:52 am

      What is just amazing to me is that, with Freedom, we can now understand something as huge as the subject of religion and reconcile it with science! And that they have played an incredible role in the human journey but they were ultimately limited. This part of Freedom was very important to me when I read it so I’ll quote it here, “Throughout history we have struggled to find meaning in the awesome contradiction of our human condition. Our endeavours in philosophy, psychology and biology have failed, until now, to provide a truthful, real, psychosis-addressing-and-solving…fully accountable, genuinely clarifying explanation. And for their part, while religious assurances such as ‘God loves you’ may have provided temporary comfort, they too failed to explain WHY we are lovable.” Freedom gives us that, the actual understanding why we are good and lovable after all, explains our behaviour and everything about our world in basic rational terms. And Freedom also explains and quotes Christ that he himself looked forward to a time when we could ‘speak plainly’ and bring understanding to the world.

    That makes perfect sense, logically. I would call it lack of awareness of the spiritual self. If one is in touch, in harmony with one’s spiritual side and connection to Mother earth/nature, then compassion is inedibly a part of the soul. Hence all of this cruelty and neglect becomes an ubhorant thought. Thanks 🙏

    • Cas on February 16, 2019 at 9:32 am

      I’m still pretty new to this but what drew me to read more about this stuff is that it’s not another new age ‘let’s not think bad thoughts’ or ‘let’s just be good’ thing. Don’t get me wrong I’ve been down that road too, but to me it’s futile. The draw card for me on the wtm stuff is that it explains why we lost connection with our spiritual self, or soulful self I spose side in the first place and that there’s actually been a good reason for it. That is really different and really special.
