This is Freedom Essay 5
The transformation of the human race!!
This video is about excitement—the pure excitement that comes with the arrival of the long dreamed-of resolution of our species’ psychologically troubled ‘human condition’. And as WTM Member Tony Gowing explains, it doesn’t matter what walk of life you’re from, this breakthrough means all humans are now free of the human condition, and can share in that excitement.
When you cotton on to this, I guarantee you will be jumping out of your skin with excitement, just can’t-stop-dancing excitement. Honestly, this is all so freeing of your life, in fact, so relieving of any and every situation, the excitement is nearly too much to bear!
And it’s important not to confuse the new, transformed world that this biological explanation makes possible with any of humanity’s previous false starts to a happy and loving world, like the ‘new age’ or ‘peace’ movements proclaimed, or that offered through religious redemption—because this new world is the real thing: a transformed world based on finally being able to actually understand and by so doing actually heal our species’ psychologically troubled condition.
So, we urge you to watch Tony’s description of the transformation of the human race that is now possible, and share in his ‘can’t-stop-dancing excitement’.
The Transcript of this video
Having, I’m assuming, now watched Jeremy Griffith’s redeeming explanation of our human condition [see Video/F. Essay 3], I want to emphasise that it doesn’t matter who you are or what kind of life you currently lead—having the explanation of the human condition will completely transform your life into the most wonderful existence imaginable.
I know that in this series we have been talking about ‘coming out of caves’, ‘living in sunshine’, ‘the meaning of life’ and the like, but this transformation isn’t weird or ‘new age’ or a religious faith—it isn’t based on dogma—it’s based on understanding. And that’s why this movement will finally sweep the world and succeed where all movements before it have failed. Those other movements were basically nothing more than stop gaps, in the case of religion, or desperate delusion-based false starts to a human-condition-free new world, in the case of all the others [see F. Essays 14, 34, 35 & 36]. But this movement is the real thing—offering a transformed world based on finally being able to understand and actually heal our psychologically troubled human condition. This transformation is all quietly driven by simple, rational, biological logic. So the way to transform your life is to simply follow the unfailing logic presented in Jeremy Griffith’s books and videos on the WTM website. [You can start to learn more about how everyone’s lives can now be immediately transformed in F. Essay 15.]
Understanding the human condition gives you the ability for the first time ever to understand every aspect of human behaviour in yourself and in everyone else with 100% clarity and confidence. The understanding will change how you view humans, and most importantly yourself, literally overnight—and your behaviour will change naturally as a result, and just as quickly. There is the initial stunned ‘deaf effect’ that trying to read about the human condition can initially cause, but once you get through that stage, in no time at all the understanding changes EVERYTHING. [The problem of the ‘deaf effect’ and how to overcome it is addressed in Video/F. Essay 11.]
Like the ‘up river story’ I used in the first video/essay of this series, I have another great little story, this time to help illustrate how understanding completely transforms our situation.
Imagine you’re standing on a crowded bus in the middle of peak hour and the person next to you has bad breath and you’re hot and exhausted and frustrated and you just need to get home. And from somewhere behind you, you start to feel something whacking you on the leg. This goes on and on, and with each whack you get more angry. In fact, after a while you’re absolutely furious and so suddenly decide to turn around and throttle the bastard who’s doing it. But when you turn around, you realise it’s an old blind woman knocking you with her cane by mistake as she tries to get her bearings. Well, the effect of this discovery is that it instantly and completely changes the way you feel. Finally able to understand the situation, all the fury abates and relief and calm floods through you. You don’t feel like a victim anymore. The whole situation has been turned around by being able to understand it.
And it is like that, but on a much, much bigger scale when you understand the human condition.
Humans have been hideous victims of the human condition—having to live horrifically unfairly condemned. We had to suffer self-corruption to find understanding, but with understanding found we are no longer victims of the situation. We don’t have to be ashamed. We don’t have to shake our fists at the heavens anymore and prove to everyone and everything that they have been wrong about us. First-principle science has proven that we are worthwhile; that we are gloriously heroic beings. It had to be the way it’s been—there was no other way—but it’s all over now. The relief of finally being able to understand floods through our whole being; the anger and frustration dissipates; all the bullshit, falseness and lies end. We can finally love ourselves and participate in the world instead of constantly fighting it. No longer preoccupied with proving our self-worth, we will finally have the room in ourselves to properly help others; to selflessly participate in stopping the suffering everywhere we look. And literally everyone will do this.
Really, the transformation of the world is already a fait accompli, a certainty—sure, it will take a little time to get started, but what will win the day is logic. Humans are thinking, rational beings so when all the logic points in one direction then there is really no choice but for every single human to take that path, and eventually they will. It will be slow for a start because humans hate and resist change, but nonetheless change does happen when an idea’s time has come. As author Victor Hugo famously said, ‘An invasion of armies can be resisted but not an idea whose time has come’ (Histoire d’un crime, 1852). And with all the crises and suffering and mental agony in the world now, this idea’s time has most certainly come! So, as more and more people catch on to this logical, rational, fully accountable explanation of the human condition, the transformation will begin to sweep the world. When the word gets out about this awesome breakthrough there’s going to be an absolute stampede—it’s going to be on for young and old!
Solving the human condition has been so critically important—the fact is that without this explanation the world would continue to spiral to complete and utter destruction, not from environmental devastation or wars as is portrayed in all the apocalyptic movies, but from terminal psychosis, unbearable separation or alienation from our true self or soul [see F. Essay 55: Endgame for the human race].
It IS true that going ‘up river’ brings some uncomfortable truths out into the open, but the key thing to remember is that it is our job from here on to get that necessary truth up and then move on from it; acknowledge the past, then put it all behind us and focus on building a whole new human-condition-free world.
And I’m telling you, really and truly, that after the initial shock of exposure, the overwhelming effect that this great transition will be known for is excitement. When you cotton on to this, I guarantee you will be jumping out of your skin with excitement, just can’t-stop-dancing excitement. Honestly, this is all so freeing of your life—in fact, so relieving of any and every situation—the excitement is nearly too much to bear!
This fabulous breakthrough will transport you and everyone else to a completely wonderful new existence. We aren’t bad, we are wonderful beings, we are glorious. There is a happy ending, there is a get-out-of-jail-free card here—love is all around, boom crash bam wham, the human condition is over—Let’s Go!!
