Debunking the ‘savage instincts’
excuse for human behaviour

 

By Jeremy Griffith, 2018

 

Humans are aggressive and ruthlessly competitive because, like other animals, we have savage instincts derived from a need to reproduce our genesright? Actually, no. In this short video, biologist Jeremy Griffith explains that humans’ selfish behaviour is NOT a product of savage animal instincts within us, but the result of a psychosis that can be healed through understandinga revelation that has the power to transform the human race. (Jeremy presents the redeeming explanation of the human condition in the next video in this series, Video/​F. Essay 3.)

So, in case you haven’t already watched this exposé of the dishonest way we humans have been excusing our selfish behaviour, we urge you to watch it now:

The Transcript of this video

 

Following on from the first video, what I would now like to say is that when it comes to the issue of human nature I know everyone uses the excuse that our competitive, selfish and aggressive behaviour is due to us having savage animal instincts, which are driven by the need to reproduce our genes. I mean, our conversations are saturated with the excuse, with comments like: ‘We are programmed by our genes to try to dominate others and be a winner in the battle of life’; and ‘Our preoccupation with sexual conquest is due to our primal instinct to sow our seeds’; and ‘Fighting and war is just our animal nature expressing itself’. And then there’s the most common comment of all, that ‘It’s just human nature to be selfish’. But surely this idea that we have savage competitive and aggressive instincts is just a convenient excuse while we searched for the real reason for our competitive and aggressive behaviour. After all, words used to describe human behaviour such as egocentric, arrogant, inspired, depressed, deluded, pessimistic, optimistic, artificial, hateful, cynical, mean, immoral, brilliant, guilt-ridden, evil, psychotic, neurotic, alienated, all recognise the involvement of OUR species’ fully conscious thinking mind. They demonstrate that there is a psychological dimension to our behaviour; that we don’t suffer from a genetic-opportunism-driven ‘animal condition’, but the psychologically troubled HUMAN CONDITION.

Also, we humans have cooperative, selfless and loving moral instincts, the voice or expression of which we call our consciencewhich is the complete opposite of competitive, selfish and aggressive instincts. As Charles Darwin said, ‘The moral sense perhaps affords the best and highest distinction between man and the lower animals’ (The Descent of Man, 1871, ch.4). (I might mention that in Video/​F. Essay 4 I provide both the irrefutable evidence for, and the biological origins of, our species’ wondrous cooperative and loving ape ancestry, which our moral instincts are the result of.)

So saying our behaviour stems from having competitive, selfish and aggressive instincts like other animals is simply not true; as I say, it’s just a convenient excuse while we waited for the psychosis-acknowledging-and-solving, real explanation of our competitive and aggressive behaviour, which is what FREEDOM presents, and I’ll be presenting in the next video (Video/​F. Essay 3).

I now need to point out that this excuse that we are victims of competitive, selfish and aggressive instincts also implies that our nature is fundamentally unchangeable, and this has led to the false belief that there will always be bad people, that there will always be wars, murders, inequality and so onand that the meaning of life is just to try, as best we can, to manage those supposedly innate, unchangeable aspects of our make-up. But again, this overlooks the fact that we suffer from a psychologically troubled human conditionand a psychosis can be healed with understanding.

Most significantly, the left-wing’s culture of dogmatically imposing cooperative, selfless and loving ideal/​politically correct values is also based on this false belief that we have unchangeable competitive, selfish and aggressive instincts, because if those are our instincts then it reasons we have no choice but to dogmatically enforce cooperative, selfless and loving behaviour. But, as just emphasised, this overlooks the fact that we suffer from a psychologically troubled condition that can be healed with understanding.

So our divisive behaviour is not unchangeable, and furthermore, it’s healing understanding we need, not dogma. Dogma is the opposite of understandingin fact dogma stops the search for understanding/​knowledge because it stifles the freedom of expression needed to search for, experiment with and by so doing find, that healing understanding/​knowledge: dogma is not the cure for the troubled state of the world, it is the poison! So, convenient as it has been, the use of the savage instincts excuse has been incredibly misleading and dangerous. The whole biological premise upon which the philosophy of the left-wing in politics is based is WRONG!which I explain much more about in Video/​F. Essay 14.

What I also want to say here (and I explain more about this in Video/​F. Essay 14) is that the famous Harvard-University-based biologist E.O. Wilson, who as I mentioned in the previous video rightly acknowledged the importance of solving the human condition, has been the leading proponent of this extremely dangerous false savage instincts excuse for our competitive, selfish and aggressive behaviour, even putting forward a completely dishonest savage instincts-based so-called ‘explanation’ for our ‘good and evil’, psychologically conflicted human condition!

______________________

So that’s the importance of the psychosis-addressing-and-solving, real explanation of the human condition in FREEDOM. It reveals that so-called ‘human nature’ is a product of an underlying psychological insecurity about whether we humans are fundamentally good or notand because the fully accountable explanation in FREEDOM is SO redeeming and healing, it brings a complete and permanent end to our insecurity-driven destructive behaviour, completely transforming all humans into secure and happy beings. It shows that our species’ psychosis can be healed with understanding and is not at all immutable or unchangeable.

That is why the front cover of FREEDOM features this wonderful sun rising over the horizon bringing us the long sought after dawn of understanding. Light/​the sun has always been the metaphor for knowledge, and that’s what’s arrived. And you can see the people on the horizon are dancing for joy that this understanding of the human condition is finally here. Also, this little booklet, Transform Your Life And Save the World, is the condensed version of FREEDOM. You can download both books for free from our website, or purchase them from bookstores, including Amazon.

So I really urge you to watch the next short video where I present the psychosis-addressing-and-solving, REAL explanation of the human condition.

    VERY INSIGHTFUL AND TRUE.

    Debunking the accepted view that we are naturally aggressive and violent, really is a game changer.
    It’s such an important concept to consider. Cheerio

  • Drou on September 21, 2017 at 4:42 am

    I have watched several of your videos with difficulty, I fail to see what you are offering as everything seems to be normal logic and nothing new or original! Maybe I am missing something but I do not see what you are saying can transform one’s life! I see no great revelation or anything that I do not already know! I am sorry but I just do not see what you are all getting so exited about.

    • Tony Gowing on September 22, 2017 at 10:09 am

      Dear Drou,
       
      This information produces a paradigm shift in understanding and so it makes sense that it will take a little bit of time to absorb what is being presented. In the case of this breakthrough explanation of the human condition, absorbing what is being presented is even more difficult than it just being a new paradim, because, as is explained in Video/Freedom Essay 1 and further in Video/Freedom Essay 11, we humans have also lived in deep psychological fear of the issue of the human condition, which is the question of why, when the ideals are to be loving and selfless, are we so competitive and selfish. And so it makes sense that when the issue is finally addressed and explained that our minds will initially struggle to take in or ‘hear’ what’s being presented, which is what we call the ‘deaf effect’. We block out most of what’s being said from entering our mind and can feel that the presentation is overly repetitious or that it contains nothing new or original.
       
      Bearing that in mind, it might be worth me quickly running through the chain of logic that links the Introductory Series, to help you see the profundity and importance of what is being presented. The important opening video to our Freedom Essay series, Video/ F. Essay 1: ‘Your block to the most wonderful of all gifts’, quickly describes and explains how to overcome the ‘deaf effect’ difficulty of accessing this fabulous world-saving and life-transforming understanding of the human condition that the whole human race has lived in hope, faith and trust would one day be found.
       
      This Video/Freedom Essay 2, explains that historically, we have tried to argue that our competitive and selfish behaviour is due to savage instincts within us. But it is pointed out in this video/essay, that our behaviour is psychologically driven, and whats more our instincts are to be cooperative and loving, and so arguing that we have savage instincts is just an excuse, which means the all-important issue of the human condition has, until now, remained unresolved.
       
      Video/Freedom Essay 3 then presents the all-important REAL explanation for our human condition. In this short video, biologist Jeremy Griffith outlines his breakthrough explanation of the human condition — that when humans developed a conscious mind some 2 million years ago, a battle unavoidably developed between it and our pre-established instincts. Jeremy explains that this conflict between our intellect and instincts caused our species to become psychologically defensive, angry, alienated and egocentric — the aggressive and competitive state we refer to as the human condition. And with the ability now to explain this conflict, all those insecure, defensive behaviours are obsoleted, brought to an end — we are freed from the human condition!
       
      Video/Freedom Essay 4 then demonstrates how readily apparent the instinct vs intellect elements of the human condition are when someone is prepared to think honestly and truthfully about the subject.
       
      In Video/Freedom Essay 5, it is explained how this transformation occurs. Very briefly, now that we have found understanding of our conflicted and distressed human condition, all our old behaviours of anger, egocentricity and alienation that we had to employ to cope while we couldn’t defend ourselves with understanding are no longer needed. Every human can now take up a magnificent, unburdened, human-condition-free, transformed life. It may take some time for people to realise that this is what is says it is, as with any new scientific breakthrough in history, but once this catches on, the infectious enthusiasm and selfless love it liberates will spread like wildfire.
       
      And then Drou, Freedom Essay 11 that I referred to at the beginning, further explains our historic fear of the human condition — how it has been the proverbial ‘elephant in our living rooms’ but one that we couldn’t look at because it brings us face to face with our capacity to behave appallingly – our ‘dark side’. So we humans have, in effect, been in a ‘catch 22’: we needed the solution before we could even start thinking about the problem. Which means, you need to be patient, and give yourself time to absorb this information, because it doesn’t take long, and I assure you it is everything it says it is.

  • Richard on September 22, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    It’s quite astonishing how quickly we gravitate to the ‘savage instincts’ excuse. when discussing these ideas, i find that people often fall back to this as their explanation for human behavior. it certainly makes it easier for them when excusing or justifying our selfish and aggressive behavior. thanks for shining some light on the truth!

  • Us on October 12, 2017 at 12:04 am

    A common reason for human behaviour that has a common savage factor is poverty ad scarcity. That could be the main reason why we behave Asocial. Also since most of us do not know eachother since we are not raised together, we do not give love to strangers.

    • Them on October 12, 2017 at 12:12 am

      A good response tpo that message would be:
      You silly, even when we are poor and do not know eachother, we still help eachother out.
      It is just our duty as beings from the same species.

      • Me on October 12, 2017 at 12:12 am

        And don’t forget the other species and lifeforms too.

  • Ray Albrecht on October 12, 2017 at 8:30 am

    This concept is key yet one which is easily skimmed over or dismissed. If you accept that we suffer from the ‘psychologically troubled HUMAN CONDITION’ as a result of our fully conscious mind, not the ‘genetic-opportunism-driven ‘animal condition’ we see in other species, then you will start to see just how key Griffith’s explanation is in untangling human behavior. And as it says above: “psychosis CAN be healed with understanding” – which provides me with hope yet for mankind.

  • Scott William Butler on November 1, 2017 at 8:04 pm

    Still reading your book and finding it interesting I think it is missing a lot but is a better concept than I have read before on the subject
    I think our minds conditioning has a lot to do with how we react but saying that everything we do and think and experience changes the way we deal with our environment step by step it forms us (who we become )
    And like all creatures we test our limitations to see how far we can go it is this exploitation that is enabling or restricting and has a lot to do with how we react as we get older (what we can get away with)
    In conclusion the world we are born into sets the tone to how we react in it
    we developed accordingly as the world changed we changed (environmental pressure)
    Has created us the way we are today change the environment change the population
    We have created a world in which competition is paramount this is the underlining problems we are facing as a species as it breeds all the negativity we are seeing in the world today

  • Howard on November 2, 2017 at 9:12 am

    The next essay in this series (#3) is the key one. This one says that the savage instincts excuse doesnt really explain human’s aggressive and selfish behaviuor, and #3 then explains what the real explanation for that behaviour is. Worth jumping forward to if you are curious.

  • Mala on November 3, 2017 at 3:02 am

    It seems to me that we have structured every method of conformity to this human condition through a conceptual perspective. Our language is about concepts focusing what to think rather how. We are so program and condition by our instruments and technologies where any human reflection is so limited and perhaps none at all. Our institutions such as religions and education are all behind this way of learning. We function only with our third person senses of hearing and seeing and disregard any of our first person senses of touch, smell and taste. Plato cave is still here and its manifested in our computers, Iphones, TV’s and other mechancal means that continue to perpetuate this view. We are much more in a reflexive mode of being rather than a creating mode. Richard Feynman famous quote, ” What I cannot create I do not understand.”

  • Yolanda_rama on November 8, 2017 at 6:26 pm

    Very interesting to follow you and learn more about human being behaviour. Thank you

  • Steve Cartoon on November 15, 2017 at 7:14 pm

    People who are aggressive and ruthlessly competitive are not necessarily psychotic. Psychosis refers to a loss of touch with reality. Explaining to an aggressive ruthlessly competitive person that they have a psychological condition and that their behaviour cannot be explained away by animal instincts is unlikely to change their behaviour. It may help the rest of us to understand why they are the way they are. Around 4% of people are sociopaths, people who have no conscience and are self absorbed. They are likely that way as a result genetic and environmental factors. Diagnosing a condition is helpful towards finding a solution but suggesting that an explanation of the condition “is SO redeeming, it brings a complete and permanent end to our insecurity-driven destructive behaviour, completely transforming all humans into secure and happy beings.” is a bridge too far.

    • Parsimony on November 16, 2017 at 5:55 pm

      Don’t underestimate how much there is here to take in, particularly the suggestion that the section of the population that displays sociopathic disorders are just more extreme examples of what we all suffer. See for example, chapters 8:16B – D of FREEDOM, where Griffith explains how levels of upset have now reached such a level extreme personality disorders are becoming frighteningly common, and how that just leads to even more upset in new generations.
      And the intriguing thing about this explanation, is that the explanation IS the solution, because it turns out that it was the lack of explanation that caused us to become upset in the first place. As I say, I know from personal experience that it is a lot to take in, but see what you think after watching the next video in the series, which is the actual explanation.

  • Richard on November 16, 2017 at 6:08 pm

    Genes are blamed for everything these days but thats not what is behind everything. I look at a child and see how a harsh word hurts them and can see how they might turn bad right there. And then you have to ask why the person mistreating them became the person they are, and the answer has to be they were mistreated in turn. And so on and so on, right back. So where did it all start? Theres a question for anyone with half a brain. And tell me if you have heard a better answer than is being put forward here, because if there is, I haven’t heard it.

  • Stephen on November 24, 2017 at 10:38 am

    Richard you are correct. Children require love, respect and security. They also need to see their parents showing love and respect for each other to learn and experience a nurturing environment. Given the relatively high divorce rate (1 in 3) and associated acrimony, the prognosis is not good. Given that our genes determinate all of our physical characteristics such as our height, eye colour, skin colour etc. it is not unreasonable to assume that at least some of our mental characteristics are inherited as well. Posing a question for “anyone with half a brain” probably takes us a little bit deeper into Plato’s cave rather than towards the sun at the entrance!

    Reading the German Intelligentsia extends your model past the two primal reactions to nature, to the synthesis you focus on and then they get lost in “god” for lack of a better term to name the ‘saviour’ within reality. The mystery of love and of evil is not resolved in that model if nature yet we see how history always returns to either evil.or more rarely to love as you espouse. It is evident that Christianity is the highest belief system (without yet being perfected) but what do you propose will bring us through the present global collapse now underway. In our faith model we obey the ‘Christian Dialectic’ of love self, God and others and will rely on our own nature abetted by the external Holy Spirit.

    Love will prevail but on Earth, evil has the advantage of materialism.

    Good project you have.

    Keep the faith in Jesus Christ and evil will flee from you.

  • Larry Sweet on December 28, 2017 at 1:17 am

    Greed seem to be one of the fundamental sins humans are afflicted with along with the some of the higher primates. Goodalls study of chimps was interesting when see through a birthday party for her favorite baby chimp would be a great surprise. She gathered a large pile of bananas in a clearing and watched in horror as this peaceful community of chimps started fighting tooth and nail to dominate the gift. Excess seems to trigger something in us. When the agrarian culture produced excess, the whole pyramid of power structure was born.

  • Parsimony on December 28, 2017 at 9:01 am

    Before absorbing Griffith’s arguments I was very sceptical that the Darwinian paradigm of natural selection could create a genuinely altruistic species. Like Larry I assumed that humans base behaviour had its origins in chimpanzee-like instincts. However, I am now convinced that bonobos are a better model for our early ancestors, and that our ‘greed’ is not instinctive at all, but psychologically derived. I recommend essay 21 in this series for an explanation of how natural selection could have created these cooperative, sharing instincts.

  • M Black on January 24, 2018 at 5:14 pm

    I would think that the behaviour is probably found mostly in “meat eaters” … vegetarians and vegans are known to be calmer, quieter and more rational. Eating the flesh of what Charles Darwin refers to as “lower animals’ (The Descent of Man, 1871, ch.4) one would probably ingest their instinctive vibrations as well as those from the violence of their slaughter.

I think as people we need to go back to the basics of raising better human beings. Then we can improve other places, but it has to start in your own home. Just a thought

      Hi Maurice. Thank you for your interest in the WTM. Jeremy explains in Chapter 4:4 of his definitive book, FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition, that ‘as the study of physics has shown, our world is made up of three fundamental ingredients—time, space, and energy—with, as Einstein revealed in his famous formula E = mc2, energy taking the form of matter, which comprises the 94 or so naturally occurring elements that, when subjected to the laws of physics, particularly the law of Negative Entropy, became ordered or integrated; they formed more stable or enduring (in time) and ever larger (in space) arrangements.’ In Chapter 4:2 of FREEDOM, or Freedom Essay 23, Jeremy explains that the development of order of matter on Earth — or ‘Negative Entropy’ — begins when in an open system, energy can come into the system from outside it, in Earth’s case from the sun. There is a tremendous selfless order to life on Earth and the the reason humanity seems so out of synch with that is because we suffer from the human condition. To return to peace and harmony we must address this all-important issue and it is exactly this longed-for breakthrough explanation of the human condition that Jeremy has found.

  • Anton Pushetonequa on July 5, 2018 at 12:56 am

    Hate, greed, being zealous, envy, anger, lust, sloth, etc are all man made traits. The biproduct is emotions and savagery when it comes to survival. Bad decisions based on bad choices based on bad knowledge and no balance in understanding. What of “ideals” and the need to know more when you should already be happy with what we have? How about materialistic values over morals? How about dignity? Or self immediate gratification, and all the denial and tactics used by people of less integrity? People making choices sights problem! Savaegery! And in native American so I know exactly what that word means. What of the land we used up and the water and air and ground pollution? Over use of the land through your “greed” thrust consuming and mass production. Does your book say anything about that. Science is just a brain trick! And you are trying to fill up a cup that has already been filled. What other animals we partake in destroying there habitats. Looks as thoAmericanNative American or American Indian along with all the animals in tie world had a purpose or shared their purpose with he animals as caretakers of earth until your need for technology arrived. And you4kingdom races never helped….ever. Your lands were always ruined and you needed or wanted more land” your wants over your needs. Your greed that you did not leave enough for the rest other people. You’re Ignorant!

    • Tommy on July 5, 2018 at 3:43 pm

      Hi Anton, I think your query is fairly summarised as one at the heart of the human condition itself. Your comment comes across as a desperate plea for “why isn’t the world ideal?!” which is incredibly honest. Why is the world saturated with selfishness and greed, carelessness and anger, when the ideals are to be cooperative, loving and selfless? As it says in the WTM’s FAQ 1.1, the agony of being unable to truthfully answer this question has been our “species’ particular affliction or condition — our ‘human condition’”. And, given a bit more time to absorb Jeremy Griffith’s ideas Anton you will see you have come to the right place, all your dreams have actually come true, because Jeremy has actually found the breakthrough explanation of the human condition! It’s been an absolutely amazing journey of liberating discovery for me. You’ll see, as I did, that we don’t have savage instincts, but cooperative ones, and that all the traits that you mention are so obviously a product of our psychologically troubled human condition which we can now heal from. And we can’t just dogmatically demand the world be ideal, that has been tried and failed many times over. As Jeremy writes in para 1221 of Freedom, “Our thinking mind needed understanding—specifically, understanding of why humans are fundamentally good and not bad, evil, worthless beings. In short, we needed the psychologically dignifying, redeeming and transforming understanding of the human condition.” And it becomes clear from all this that science had a very important role indeed to play in humanity’s journey.

      Now that we can biologically understand why we are so divisively behaved when the ideals are to be cooperative, the horrific state of the human condition can end and we can ALL finally legitimately move forward into a peaceful and harmonious, happy, freedom-filled world together. As the founder of the WTM Centre in Zambia, Franklin Mukakanga beautifully says in Freedom essay 8, ‘this understanding of the human condition will end all prejudices, like racism, forever. It is so exciting to think about what the world is going to be like when this understanding becomes widely known and understood because it is going to bring about a world that is harmonious, healed and transformed, which is the glorious home our species deserves at the end of its journey to self-understanding.’

    Stating that human problems come from a psychological base rather than from.our based animal instincts, doesn’t make it so

    • Susy on August 27, 2018 at 11:44 am

      Essay 4, or the video of the essay, will help you Elaine, and Denis, as it did me. There it brings in evidence from contemporary thinkers and those from ancient times that recognise the conflict between our instincts and intellect, and part of that is the undeniable evidence from these thinkers of our moral, cooperative instinctive past (rather than having savage instincts) and also from the bonobos. It explains how guilty we must have been if our conscious mind had destroyed ‘paradise’, and therefore why we have been so desperate to believe that our instincts were savage. It really is a blockbuster of a video actually! Once you have that truth under your belt, the fact that all of our problems are psychological is very apparent, and not only that, being psychological (rather than genetic) our troubled upset state can be healed. It’s a very good news story. Hope you persevere.

      Elaine: CORRECT!

  • David Bates on September 14, 2018 at 9:57 am

    It does seem that we are heading towards a global realization, enabled by this 21st-century era of technology when the good news may be shared like never before. I wonder if members of this online community feel the comparison between the zeitgeist (spirit of the age) paradigm shift to universalism in the New Testament parable of The Human Condition, that delivered by an iconic image of the psychic pain involved in dissolving a sense of psychological-blindness that is created by our early-life adaptation to the survival skills of numeracy and literacy.

    I’m thinking of the New Testament Neuroscience, that began in 1990 with the decade of the Brain, delivering a wealth of information that will in time, filter through to the mass consciousness of humanity. Furthermore, I’m specifically thinking about professor Stephen Porges: The Polyvagal Theory and his wonderful articulation of The Infants Sixth Sense.

    “Six senses, not five?” Who knew?

    And the devilish number in the Apocalypse book of poor old John, sitting in a cave on the Ise of Patmos.

    Why would they write such metaphorical descriptions of the human condition, in this way? I wonder.

    Seeing they see not, and in no wise perceive. Who said that?

    • Tommy on September 14, 2018 at 2:33 pm

      I do agree David that as alienating as online technology currently is spreading nothing but endless brain-numbing distraction and worse, when a good idea appears such as this one put forward by the WTM it is going to be a very powerful tool to share the good news as you say. I only have at best a cursory understanding of the different theories you have mentioned above. As far as I understand, the universalism concept you mention is now fulfilled with this biological explanation of the human condition. Every human, each with our own unavoidably upset state, is now fully explained and defended, and we are finally and incredibly reconciled with the loving ideals of life, indeed with our own loving moral instincts. What I see is just so significant is that solving the human condition required finding the clarifying difference between the way the intellect and instincts work, and that is the great breakthrough that Jeremy Griffith has found (see essay 4; and also essay 53 on other thinkers who have recognised instinct and intellect elements involved in creating the human condition). The significance of the explanation of the human condition takes some time to absorb, which I can attest to, but the more you do absorb it, the more you realise just how all-redeeming, all-reconciling, all-liberating it is. In terms of Stephen Porges’ ‘interoception’ 6th sense of children I think you will be incredibly fascinated by the essay on our moral conscience which is essay 21.

  • Gwendolen on October 17, 2018 at 11:00 am

    Hi there, I’m getting through some more of the videos (and shared some on fb) on the WTM home page and came across the phrase “First Principle Science”. I googled it to no avail. Please clarify. <3 & keep up the great work. I have read Freedom: The End Of The Human Condition into Ch. 3 and am loving it!! Thanks so much.

    • Susan Armstrong on October 18, 2018 at 8:46 am

      Hi Gwendolen, It is so good to hear how you are progressing with FREEDOM and the videos on the website! Good question. When you build on something from first principles you are building from the simplest concepts available, that everyone agrees to be true without additional assumptions, like gravity. So when science discovered the first principles of how genes and nerves work, only then could someone bring understanding to the human condition. And that is what Jeremy has done! He has presented the first-principle-based biological explanation of the human condition. There are other first principles involved too of course like the physical law of existence known as Negative Entropy (or the Second Path of the Second Law of Thermodynamics as the physicists call it!) which you will get to in the next chapter of Freedom, Chapter 4. Anyway it was great to hear from you Gwendolen, keep sending in any questions and and our best wishes to you.

  • Monte John Latham on December 17, 2018 at 1:27 pm

    Jeremy says everybody holds dear the savage instinct excuse; he should say many and in particular many who limit themselves to faith in science. For there are likely more than half the world who do not hold it dear; including may who simply do not question, don’t know or are at peace with the truth..

    • Susan on February 11, 2019 at 10:31 am

      Hi Jann, Thank you very much for your interest in the WTM. It does take a while to digest the great significance of this Jaan. As Video/Freedom Essay 1 outlines, the very nature of the human condition means that people can have a great deal of difficulty initially accessing or ‘hearing’ the explanations because the issue of the human condition has been the most terrifying of subjects to face and we have lived in almost total denial of it. Our minds suffer from a ‘deaf effect’ to what is being presented, with the consequence being that we struggle to read and absorb the liberating and transforming explanation of ourselves. What initially happens when discussion of the human condition begins is that our mind goes into shock and our protective denials begin to kick in and block the words and their meaning from entering our conscious awareness. At a certain point the words just wash over us, there is no absorption of them, and our minds effectively become ‘deaf’ to any more discussion of the human condition. Then, not knowing why we can’t take in what’s being written, we blame the presentation, believe it’s badly written, needs summarising or editing. We suggest that with patient re-reading and watching the deaf effect can be overcome and I would recommend you watch/read Video/Freedom Essay 1 and also Video/Freedom Essay 11 which includes some very powerful quotes from people who have overcome their personal ‘deaf effect’. FAQ 1.16 is also very helpful answering the questions ‘why can’t I understand what this is all about?’ and ‘why am I struggling to read FREEDOM?’. It does take a while to fully appreciate the extent of our denial and the impact this has on the way we perceive or respond to the presentation.

  • Robert Mitchell on February 24, 2019 at 3:09 pm

    I am a bit lost trying to follow all this information, can you please send me your suggestions on how to use all this information? ( ie) watch all videos then read the books, or read the books first then do the essay s ? Im not sure how to approach all this information I have watched the first 14 videos at the moment? Thanks Robert Mitchell

    • WTM Admin on February 24, 2019 at 5:29 pm

      Hi Robert, You’re certainly on the right track having watched the first 14 videos. You can go to FAQ 1.11 to answer your question but briefly, the Freedom Essay series follows the same path as the videos, so F. Essays 1-14 contain Introductory videos 1-14, so this is a great place to start. We do recommend that people watch the first 4 videos, which are key to understanding that the human condition has been solved (and Video 14 is also important), ideally more than once because, as is explained in Video/F. Essay 1, we have lived in fear of the subject of the human condition and that can make ‘hearing’ the explanation initially quite difficult, but this ‘deaf effect’ can be overcome by rewatching/reading the material.

      Please feel free to contact us also, we’d be more than happy to interact with you if you’d like to ask any other questions, discuss your thoughts or pursue your interest further.

  • John Andros on March 1, 2019 at 4:34 pm

    First of all thank you for this book and the greater possibilities for a transformed world through understanding.
    Jeremy talks about the stress teen are under and incidence of glandular fever. One thing I have always wondered about is why our Thymus gland diminisjes after we reach puberty could this relate to our despondency of never talking about or looking at the human condition?
    The spiritual path of disidentifdisidentifacation of the mind, being the observer of the mind and thoughts etc does this transcend the human condition? How does meditation and other practices that seem to integrate polar oposites relate to understanding the human condition?

    • Genevieve on March 3, 2019 at 1:30 pm

      Hi John, thank you for your questions. Certainly the torment of not being able to understand the human condition has had an extraordinarily powerful effect on us physiologically, but I don’t know if it is related to the reduction in size of the thymus gland after puberty, however it is not out of the question. As Jeremy points out in F. Essay 30, “unable to acknowledge the process of Resignation, adults instead blamed the well-known struggles of adolescence on the hormonal upheaval that accompanies puberty, the so-called ‘puberty blues’—even terming glandular fever, a debilitating illness that often occurs in mid-adolescence, a puberty-related ‘kissing disease’. These terms, ‘puberty blues’ and ‘kissing disease’, are dishonest, denial-complying, evasive excuses because it wasn’t the onset of puberty that was causing the depressing ‘blues’ or glandular fever, but the trauma of Resignation. For glandular fever to occur, a person’s immune system must be extremely rundown, and yet during puberty the body is physically at its peak in terms of growth and vitality—so for an adolescent to succumb to the illness they must be under extraordinary psychological pressure, experiencing stresses much greater than those that could possibly be associated with the physical adjustments to puberty, an adjustment, after all, that has been going on since animals first became sexual. No, the depression and glandular fever experienced by young adolescents are a direct result of the trauma of having to resign to never again revisiting the unbearably depressing subject of the human condition.”

      Regarding ‘disidentification of the mind’ and mindfulness practices, in More Good Info Email 8 Jeremy addresses the question, can mindfulness overcome the human condition? He argues that it’s really about being mindless rather than mindful, “because you’re still escaping or disengaging the issue of the human condition, you’re avoiding dealing with it… we humans needed brain food not brain anaesthetic. So, there’s been thousands of years of techniques like meditation, prayer and chanting for calming the troubled mind and soul of humans but they don’t address and solve the agony of the human condition. Being able to understand the human condition is what really allows humans to accept and be nonjudgmental about their pain, and truly be calmly mindfully aware about their life.” You can read more discussion about this in F. Essays 33 and 36.

The explanation of the two sides of human nature speak to me in a way I have been longing to hear for so long, what an incredible breakthrough, I’m overjoyed by this, it’s unexpected that this knowledge is coming to light in my lifetime. A million thank yous.

  • Vivian Luoma on November 1, 2019 at 3:32 pm

    I have just started with the material, and I realize I need to spend some time to digest it all. I really believe that understanding is the key. I live in Canada, and polarization is extremely prevalent at this time – especially if you live in Alberta with the Alberta Proud group who is pushing and bullying people to promote the separatist mentality. I am all for living in peace and harmony. Is there anything I can say to people to stop the extreme polarization, to get them to stop and think. I am trying my best.

    • Susan on November 2, 2019 at 10:52 am

      Thank you very much for your interest in the WTM Vivian. This understanding of the human condition represents a massive paradigm shift in our thinking which means there is much to explain, describe and digest, so it’s wonderful that you taking your time with our material. As a starting point, we do recommend watching Videos 1 – 4 and 14, of our Introductory Video Series a few times, having received great feedback as key to fast track your introduction to this ground-breaking understanding. You are spot on when you say ‘that understanding is the key’. To responsibly and profoundly deal with the human condition you have to confront, explain, understand and by so doing be able to heal and end our destructive nature—there is no short cut. Humans have to be able to understand their way to freedom, and it is that all-clarifying, redeeming and rehabilitating understanding that Jeremy provides.
       
      In bringing understanding to the human condition, it brings compassionate and thus safe understanding to ALL of human behaviour, be it our individual lives, or politics and the whole democratic process, or religion, the relationship between men and women or different races etc. What you discover is this explanation unravels the seemingly impenetrable and insoluble confusion of human life and actually reconciles the polarities that currently exist — for instance the divide between the left and right wing in politics. As Freedom Essay 34 outlines, which you may also be interested to read, it allows us to understand the real merits and liabilities of both the left and right wing and thankfully such understanding brings the whole ugly business of politics to an end.

  • Pierre C. Carbonneau on January 25, 2020 at 7:07 am

    I find your idea of freedom of the human species very attractive ! Wanting myself to be free, and putting freedom as an important value, I share your vision of a no-God evolutionist way of existence. I was born religion-free and baptized in the Roman, apostolic and catholic church as I was nine days old. My parents were both catholic, my father practicing more than my mother who also believed. I had classes of religion from first grade of the elementary school to the third grade of secondary school. I became an atheist at age 13 or 14, and stopped going to church with my father. I am still an atheist at 57 years old and I don’t see how I could change my mind on that idea! I am a historian of New-France (Canada before it became an English colony in 1763). My specialisation is the social history during the «Great Century», meaning that of the king of France and Navarre, Louis the XIVth (who reigned from 1643 to 1715). My doctoral dissertation studied the magistrates of the Sovereign Council, created by Louis the XIVth in 1663 and lasted until the war defeat of Montreal in 1760. The colony was under british domination until the treaty of peace of Paris in 1763 gave it to the british crown. Canada, since then, stayed under the possession of the british monarchs until today. All that to say that your conception of freedom pleases me ! I feel free in Canada ! Thanks to history that kept it under monarchies ! I might say I am a royalist ! A free royalist !

    • Tommy on January 25, 2020 at 9:29 am

      Love your enthusiasm Pierre! I love Jeremy Griffith’s line which goes something like ‘humans had to understand their way to freedom’. You’ve really found the place that will liberate humanity Pierre, this logical and rational biological explanation finally satisfies our conscious brain’s search for understanding! I wouldn’t say that it’s ‘no-God’ though, Jeremy presents the demystification of God as integrative meaning and you can read all about that in essay 23.

    • Denis on August 28, 2020 at 2:51 am

      “I share your vision of a no-God evolutionist way of existence ” translates to a Godless accidental creation which is impossible and counter to the holistic concepts contained in much of what Mr. Griffith articulates. Evolution is reinvested learning eventually making possible the so called perfect state.

  • vicente on January 27, 2020 at 10:35 am

    In the fifth century BC , a little before Plato, Prince Siddhartha Guatama found himself faced to face with the problem of the’ Human Condition’ He spent a significant part of his adult life seeking an answer to this problem. After many years of consultation with the best minds of his time and having submitted to to the practices of the foremost spiritual teachers of the day, he felt that he was no closer to an understanding of this problem of human suffering. So he decided to sit in contemplation under the shade of a large tree and to stay there until he found the answer.
    The answer he discovered was that the problem lay in the nature of mind, the conditioned nature of mind which acts like a block to our perception of reality as it really is , keeps us imprisoned in the dark cave of ignorance, in a world that refects a reality which is a projection of our egoic conditioning.
    The rest of his life was spent teaching hundreds of thousands of people the technique he discovered, a techniqe which would liberate them from this false way of perceiving themselves and the world around them.
    The Buddhist religion has nothing to do with Guatama . He simply taught a technique to anyone who would listen . No need for beliefs or doctrines.The meditation practice speaks for itself . And with practice and patience over time the conditioned mind takes a back seat and the mind of the heart, freed from its tyrrany ,opens up in all of its peaceful and compassionate splendor . Sound to me like this movement has the same goal but on a different path.
    This technique is still beng taught for free all over the plant. For info……. dhamma.org

    • RJ on January 29, 2020 at 3:17 pm

      Yes Buddha was an extraordinary prophet vicente as I’ve learnt well by reading Jeremy’s books, and his insights helped humanity enormously so thank you very much for sharing a bit of his amazing life here, although I wanted to add that it’s really very different from what the WTM is about.

      The WTM is not a religion, there is no faith or dogma as it is all based on rational, logical biology, this FAQ is helpful to read to understand this more https://www.humancondition.com/wtm-faq-is-this-some-sort-of-religion/. Nor is it another tool for managing the human condition like meditation. I’ve just been reading the ‘more good info #8’ and while talking about the practice of mindfulness, Jeremy says ‘it is really about being mindless not mindful because you’re still escaping or disengaging the issue of the human condition, you’re avoiding dealing with it… we humans needed brain food not brain anaesthetic. So, there’s been thousands of years of techniques like meditation, prayer and chanting for calming the troubled mind and soul of humans but they don’t address and solve the agony of the human condition. Being able to understand the human condition is what really allows humans to accept and be nonjudgmental about their pain, and truly be calmly mindfully aware about their life.”

      This is a beautiful paragraph 1148 from Freedom which talks about how much this information is a fulfillment of all that Budda and other religions are fundamentally about: “Buddhist scripture contains similarly truthful anticipations of the clarity and form humans would achieve once the ameliorating understanding of the human condition arrived and was absorbed—that ‘In the future they will every one be Buddhas [be free of psychosis and neurosis] / And will reach Perfect Enlightenment [reach understanding of the human condition]’ (Buddha [Siddartha Gautama], The Lotus Sutra, c.560-480 BC, ch.9; tr. W.E. Soothill, 1987, p.148 of 275), and ‘will with a perfect voice preach the true Dharma, which is auspicious and removes all ill’ (Maitreyavyakarana; tr. Edward Conze, Buddhist Scriptures, 1959, pp.238-242). Of that time, the scripture says, ‘Human beings are then without any blemishes, moral offences are unknown among them, and they are full of zest and joy. Their bodies are very large and their skin has a fine hue. Their strength is quite extraordinary’ (ibid).” It’s amazing to think that time as actually arrived!

  • Haytham Khoury on January 29, 2020 at 10:42 am

    Thank you Jeremy for this excellent rebuttal of the view that says that human are savage by nature,

  • Christopher Ringland Hampton on February 3, 2020 at 11:55 pm

    Would you agree with the statement that ,’What you are putting across is as dangerous and as flawed as the false teachings you are rightly opposing’ . I am being the devil’s advocate. I anticipate a direct rebuttal. How would you reply also to the statement that
    ‘ There are no moral absolutes. Every action has to be placed in its context. Even extreme violence and murder can be justified in extreme circumstances’ Another statement inviting a categorical rebuttal is, ‘ The movement chooses to ignore an almost universal researched evolutionary consensus on the nature of man ( we are very intelligent apes possessing ‘normal’ animal instincts) and prefers an unevidenced arcane esoteric hypothesis that purports to offer a comprehensive psychological explanation for mankind’s competitive drive and instincts’

    • Tony Miall on February 4, 2020 at 3:01 pm

      As you will see from Freedom Essays 3 and 4, the instinct vs intellect explanation is completely rational and fully accountable, and in fact, finding understanding of our psychologically troubled human condition is the only thing that can heal it. This information is the antithesis of dangerous and flawed.
       
      With regard to your second point, as you will see from Freedom Essay 21, humans in fact have a moral soul, developed from a time when our ape ancestors lived cooperatively and lovingly, so we do reject your second point, the idea of moral relativism. Also it’s very important to note that this biological understanding of the human condition which explains why we became upset as a species doesn’t condone or sanction ‘evil’, rather, through bringing understanding to humans’ upset behaviour, it gives us the power to ameliorate and thus subside and ultimately eliminate it.
       
      In answer to your third statement, it has been argued very thoroughly why the ‘savage instincts’ excuse for human behaviour has been adopted so widely by humans including the scientific community and why that is fundamentally wrong (see Freedom Essays 4 and 14 for example). The key biological distinction that needs to be made is that humans suffer from the conscious-mind-based, psychologically troubled human condition, not the genetic-opportunism-based, animal condition. And while the redeeming instinct vs intellect explanation for our psychologically troubled condition may initially be confronting, it is not arcane or esoteric at all; in fact the more you digest it, the more you realise just how simple and accountable it is, and as Freedom Essay 4 details, the intellect and instinct elements have been recognised by many of history’s great thinkers as being responsible for our condition.

  • Gerald on February 15, 2020 at 4:52 pm

    The human condition is that we are fallen human beings. That’s why Jesus came to die on Calvary. To restore the human condition. Understanding the human condition is just admitting that all man kind are sinners and need to be born again. Millions upon millions have found Jesus to be the Saviour who forgives and restores. I’m one of them.
    Truly. Jesus satisfies the longing of my soul.

    This has been my sentiments exactly for as long as I can recall, it is so important to Like and behave in a manner that You Can Love and Respect YOURSELVES, for then we need not look to Others for Our Own acceptance If we are bothered by a feature we possess , it is just a personal expectation We Put ON OURSELVES, You are a Perfect Human Being, GOD Makes Us different for the exclusive individuality He gifts Us. It is what makes US Special, I pray We All See Ourselves as equally individuals perfectly imperfect in one way or another, and maybe it is a blessing, as to not allow Ourselves to be overcome by vanity, but to strengthen Our Characters without competitive temptations, we are equally imperfect in one way or another. One saying I Love to communicate is , Be Real make good memories to be remembered, be kind and likable to be Liked, and with selfless thoughts be lovable to be Loved. Kind and Loving regards to all.

    I have only watched your presentations and now realise how the human race has deceived and deluded itself into believing that we are no different from other animals. Whilst it has been drilled into us to believe we are developed and more intelligent than other beings, we haven’t gone further than just getting ‘out of the cave.’

    Your presentations are so inspirational and enlightening, and wonder whether humanity will ever venture out of the cave a confront light. You have made a significant and giant step for humanity, but wonder whether the human race will embrace this wisdom and change its ways for the better.

    The passion with which this material is presented, and endorsements by like minded people is amazing, and hope that humanity will wake up from its slumber and embrace what you and other philosophers have also written about as quoted in your work. Whether that will happen in our lifetime after failure over millions of years is one thing, but that will not detract from excellent work passionately expressed in these presentations.

    Thank you for the love displayed throughout your work, and hope that I can continue to learn from it.

    • Susan on August 28, 2020 at 9:00 am

      Hi Denis, Thank you for your interest in the WTM. Jeremy Griffith’s explanation of the human condition reconciles science and religion by bringing biological understanding to pre-scientific concepts. You might find our FAQs about religion of interest.
       
      In his definitive book FREEDOM, par 840, Jeremy Griffith explains that when we die we don’t live on in any physical sense but we do live on in spirit, to quote: ‘…it can be understood that all human effort since time immemorial has been meaningful. Humans can now understand that each and every human life is extraordinarily significant and that their efforts on Earth, the real essence of their being, do carry on and endure. The spirit of humans, the enormous courage that they have exhibited on the journey to enlightenment through the incredible darkness, loneliness and hardship of having to live in denial, lives on in each of us and is carried on in all subsequent generations.’ This is explained in more detail in Jeremy’s book A Species In Denial, see section titled Afterlife explained.

  • Sean Palframan on September 23, 2020 at 4:23 pm

    Thank You to Jeremy for expounding upon your philosophy so passionately and extraordinarily, astutely with enormous love and generosity of spirit. Your excitement over your triumphant work, is truly inspirational to watch and read. Thank You Jeremy for so freely and generously sharing an enormous amount of work and years of knowledge acquisition, enlightenment and experience. I’m currently writing the outline for my own non fictional dynamically transformative work which I envisage publishing in 2021 – NOTHING as comprehensive nor professional as your Freedom work and writings. I pray that with your innovative and transformative take on the human condition and the solution for us as a species including the entire transformative philosophy needs to be considered for adoption as part of an organisation’s fundamental truths and a path toward further enlightenment and also as part of our agenda in terms of creating a happier, more joyful and peaceful abundantly prosperous in Body, Mind and Soul/Spirit interdependent community and ultimately society living in love, light and wisdom. An enormous thank You, Sir, for what I truly believe will become an ever increasing number of followers of your Soultion to the Human Condition theory. Congratulations, another Sunshine Miner has brought great knowledge to his fellows in the Brotherhood of Man. May the longtime Sun shine upon You, may all Love surround You. X Sean Reginald
