Your block to the most wonderful of all gifts


By Jeremy Griffith, 2018


What would you do if the most wonderful gift you could absolutely ever dream of became available to youyet a thick wall was blocking your access to itbut you were given some instructions that would allow you to get through that wall? You would follow those instructions to the letter, wouldn’t you! Well, that’s exactly the situation I want to now describe.


These are Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith’s opening words in the first of the introductory videos that appear at the top of our homepage. In this first video, Jeremy describes the predicament of being offered the liberating explanation of the human condition, but, in a terrible irony, not being able to access it because of our historic fear of the issue. But, as Jeremy also explains, there is a solution to overcoming this impasseso we urge you to watch this critical presentation now as you begin your journey with this most momentous and all-exciting of breakthroughs for the human race!

The Transcript of this video


Hello, my name is Jeremy Griffith, I am an Australian biologist and the author of this book, FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition.



The situation

I want to start by posing a question: what would you do if the most wonderful gift you could absolutely ever dream of became available to youyet a thick wall was blocking your access to itbut you were given some instructions that would allow you to get through that wall? You would follow those instructions to the letter, wouldn’t you! Well, that’s exactly the situation I want to now describe.



The most wonderful of all gifts

The greatest of all goals of the human racein fact it has been our species’ great hope, faith and trustis that one day we would find the redeeming, reconciling and psychologically healing biological understanding of our ‘good and evil’-conflicted human condition. As the renowned Harvard biologist E.O. Wilson has written, ‘The human condition is the most important frontier of the natural sciences’ (Consilience, 1998, p.298 of 374), and in another of his books, ‘There is no grail more elusive or precious in the life of the mind than the key to understanding the human condition’ (The Social Conquest of Earth, 2012, p.1). Well, as will be revealed in the next two short videos, that most ‘precious in the life of the mind’ breakthrough of the biological ‘understanding [of] the human condition’ has been found.

So this IS just the most momentous event in the whole of human history where each and every human can now be transformed from having to live a life where in truth everything is just so desperate, disappointing, meaningless, hopeless, depressing, tiring, hurtful and false, to a life where every situation, every person, absolutely everything now can be flooded with meaningful understanding and the relief, excitement, enthusiasm, peace, togetherness and happiness it brings. All the confusion, insecurity and uncertainty, all the darkness in our lives, can go and we can be free of the agony of the human condition. And 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. It will solve family breakdown, drugs, obesity, epidemic levels of loneliness, depression and mental illness. And it will end the extreme anxiety that is now paralysing younger generations, with their grey clothing and here-comes-the-end-of-the-world hoodies, their psychosis-crippled zombie parades in the streets, and their understandable, too-much-unbearable-pain-in-the-brain, snowflake-short attention spans, which really all herald our head-long plunge to the psychotic death of our species.

But there is a block!

Yes, with the human condition at last resolved, and our existence finally made sense of, everything can now be fixed and brought back to life. That is the magnitude of the gift on offer, BUT THERE IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM, which is that virtually everyone will find this world-saving and life-transforming explanation of the human condition initially impossible to accessI emphasise, ‘initially impossible to access’!

Why this happens is because even though the human condition has been, as Wilson said, the most ‘precious in the life of the [our] mind’ and thus ‘the most important’ of all issues to solve, it has also been the most terrifying of subjects to face, and this fear makes our mind so afraid it can’t absorb discussion of the issue, and discover that it has finally been explained and made safe to confront, which means we can’t derive all the fabulous benefits of the explanation! As soon as discussion of the human condition begins, the mind of virtually everyone starts blocking out what is being said because its prior experience of where it is being asked to go has been too terrifying. The situation is akin to giving someone who suffers from a fear of snakes a book that will free them of their phobia, but as soon as they open the book and see descriptions and images of snakes, they fearfully slam it shut; their fear blocks them from being able to access the book’s cure.

understand why reading about the human condition is difficult.



So why has the subject of the human condition been so terrifying?

People bandy around the term ‘human condition’ often enough, which gives the impression that there is nothing particularly fearful about it, but that superficial treatment of the subject is part of the denial we have practised to protect ourselves from just how terrifying the issue really is. The scientist Blaise Pascal spelled out the true horror of our species’ contradictory nature or condition when he wrote, ‘What a chimera [a multi-faceted being] then is man! What a novelty, what a monster, what a chaos, what a contradiction, what a prodigy! Judge of all things, imbecile worm of the earth, repository of truth, a sewer of uncertainty and error, the glory and the scum of the universe!’ (Pensées, 1669). William Shakespeare was equally revealing of the paradoxical nature of the human condition when he wrote, ‘What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculty!…​In action how like an angel! In apprehension how like a god! The beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? [Brutal and barbaric] Man delights not me’ (Hamlet, 1603).

This extraordinary dichotomy that Pascal and Shakespeare have written about is what the human condition really is. We humans embody this extreme ‘contradiction’ of being the most brilliantly clever of creatures, the ones who are ‘god’‘like’ in our ‘infinite’ ‘faculty’ of ‘reason’ and ‘apprehension’, and yet we also behave in the seemingly completely unclever ‘monster[ous], ‘imbecile worm of the earth’, ‘sewer of uncertainty and error’, ‘scum of the universe’ ‘quintessence of dust’ way. Not only are we competitive, aggressive and selfish when the ideals of life are so obviously to be cooperative, loving and selfless, we are also the meanest, most vicious of species, one that is only too capable of inflicting pain, cruelty, suffering and degradation. As the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer wrote, ‘man is the only animal which causes pain to others with no other object than causing pain…​No animal ever torments another for the sake of tormenting: but man does so, and it is this which constitutes the diabolical nature which is far worse than the merely bestial’ (Essays and Aphorisms, tr. R.J. Hollingdale, 1970, p.139 of 237).

But ‘what a monster’war
in Aleppo, Syria, 2013


Yes, as I will explain in the third and fourth videos/​essays of this series, we humans have been living with an horrific injustice that has caused such volcanic frustration and anger in us that we have been capable of behaving far more viciously than other animals, and it’s precisely that deep injusticewhich, I’ll tell you now, is the implication that we are vile and worthless creatures when we haven’t believed we are but couldn’t explain why we aren’tthat this explanation of the human condition reaches to the bottom of and brings relieving understanding to.

But without this relieving understanding, our often ferocious and vile behaviour has seemed to indicate that we humans are, as Pascal described us, the ‘scum of the universe’and trying to face that seemingly irrefutable conclusion has been sheer terror for our minds and has led to absolutely unbearable, in fact suicidal, depression. Indeed, our fear of facing the seemingly irrefutable conclusion that we are the ‘scum of the universe’ has been so great it has taken the minds of some of the world’s greatest philosophers to even articulate the fear. That is how great this fear has beenwe could hardly even bring ourselves to mention it!


Soren Kierkegaard, Nikolai Berdyaev, Gerard Manley Hopkins

Søren Kierkegaard (1813–1855), Nikolai Berdyaev (1874–1948), Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)


A reviewer wrote that it is widely regarded that the philosopher Søren Kierkegaard’s ‘analysis on the nature of despair is one of the best accounts on the subject’ (Wikipedia; see the ‘nature of despair’ being as close as the reviewer could go in referring to the worse-than-death, suicidal depression that the subject of the human condition has historically caused humans, but which Kierkegaard managed to give such an honest account of in his aptly titled 1849 book, The Sickness Unto Death: ‘the torment of despair is precisely the inability to die [and end the torture of our previously unexplained human condition]…​that despair is the sickness unto death, this tormenting contradiction [which is our ‘good and evil’, human condition-afflicted lives], this sickness in the self; eternally to die, to die and yet not to die’ (tr. A. Hannay, 1989, p.48 of 179). So that’s how suicidally depressing the issue of the human condition has been!

It follows then that to confront the until now unexplained human condition has been an impossible ask for virtually everyoneas another great philosopher, Nikolai Berdyaev, acknowledged: ‘Knowledge requires great daring. It means victory over ancient, primeval terror…​it must also be said of knowledge that it is bitter, and there is no escaping that bitterness…​Particularly bitter is moral knowledge, the knowledge of good and evil. But the bitterness is due to the fallen state of the world…​There is a deadly pain in the very distinction of good and evil, of the valuable and the worthless’ (The Destiny of Man, 1931; tr. N. Duddington, 1960, pp.14-15 of 310). Yes, that has been the absolutely unbearable questionare we humans so awful that we actually are ‘worthless’?!

In his appropriately titled poem No Worst, There Is None, the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins similarly wrote, ‘O the mind, mind has mountains; cliffs of fall, frightful, sheer, no-man-fathomed’, articulating how fearfully confronting and depressing the previously un-‘fathomed’ issue of the human condition has been.


Image of person standing on edge of terrible chasm in mountains


So, again, while we couldn’t explain and understand it, that is how terrifying the subject of our corrupted or ‘fallen’ human condition has really been, and it’s why virtually all humans had absolutely no choice but to resign themselves to blocking the issue out of their minds, not allow themselves to confront it.



The ‘deaf effect’ this historic fear now causes

So given this extreme commitment to blocking the issue out, when that most sought-after of all gifts for the human mind, that fabulous, all-redeeming, all-relieving and all-transforming understanding of ourselvesthat Wilson described as the most ‘precious in the life of the mind’ holy ‘grail’ of ‘science’ of ‘understanding the human condition’is finally foundas the third video in this series will explain that it now has beenyou need to be aware that your mind will be too afraid of the subject to effectively take in and absorb analysis of it. An extreme ‘deaf effect’ (as we have come to describe it) to what is being said will occur in your mind.


A man with his eyes closed and his fingers firmly inserted in his ears



So how can the ‘deaf effect’ be overcome?

The obvious question then is, ‘How can you overcome the problem of not being able to absorb or ‘hear’ discussion of the human condition, so you can access the incredibly relieving gift that the understanding brings?’

The answer, that many years of experience has taught me and many others, is that the way to overcome the ‘deaf effect’ is through patient perseverance. What will happen as you continue to read and/​or listen to discussion of the human condition is that the reassuring logic of the explanation will start to ease your subconscious fear of the subject, and before long you will find that you can actually take in or ‘hear’ what is being said without encountering any of the problems you initially experienced. If you are patient and persevere, your mind will start to realise that this previously terrifying subject has actually been made safe to confront, and it will start to relax and take in what’s being said.


A group of people stuck and despairing in a dark cave of denial.


I might mentionand this is something absolutely astonishingthat way back during the Golden Age of Greece, in 360 BC, the very great philosopher Plato gave the most truthful and penetrating account that has ever been given of the human condition. In it he described humans as living in such fear of the ‘human condition’ (and this is the earliest mention I’ve seen of the term) that we’ve had to metaphorically hide ‘a long way underground’ in a dark ‘cave’ so none of the ‘painful’ ‘light’ outside the cave can reach us because it would make ‘visible’ ‘the imperfections of human life’even predicting the ‘deaf effect’ by saying that when someone finally ‘escapes from the cave into the light of day’ and from there finds understanding of the ‘human condition’ and then tries to help the cave prisoners ‘escape into the sun-filled setting outside the cave’, that our minds would be so completely frozen with fear that, he said, we ‘wouldn’t be able to see a single one of the things’ we were ‘now told were real’, at least ‘not at first because’ we ‘would need to grow accustomed to the light’ of the truthful understanding. So Plato said we ‘wouldn’t be able to see a single one of the things’ we were ‘now told were real’that’s confirmation of how extreme the problem of the ‘deaf effect’ is! (I present a much more detailed account, with sources, of Plato’s amazingly truthful description of our fear of the human condition and its effects in Video/​F. Essay 11 of this series.)


Man exiting cave shielding his eyes from the sun


To illustrate the effectiveness of persevering and, as Plato said, ‘grow[ing] accustomed to the light’, a reviewer of this fully accountable, all-explaining and all-solving analysis of the human condition that I will be presenting a short summary of in the third video/​essay of this series wrote: [When I first came across this information] it was not an easy read. The core concepts kept slipping from my mental grasp, at the time I put it down to bad writing, however a second reading revealed something the Author had indicated from the outsetyour mind doesn’t want to understand the content [actually, doesn’t want to confront it]. The second read was quick and painless…​[and I was then able to see that] The cause of the malaise [in humans] is exposed, remedied and the reader is left with at the very least an understanding of themselves, and for me something of an optimism for the future’ (‘Fitzy’, Humanitus Interruptus – Great Minds of Today, 21 Oct. 2011; see

Many more almost identical descriptions of the difficulty of the ‘deaf effect’, and of how you need to be prepared to persevere if you are to overcome it, are also presented in Video/​F. Essay 11. I might mention that this reviewer’s initial thinking that the reason he found it hard to ‘grasp’ what was being said was because of ‘bad writing’ occurs with nearly everyone, and this is because being unaware that we have been living in denial of what’s being talked about, we can’t help but think the problem has to be in the presentation.



Tony Gowing’s experience

At this point I would like to ask Tony Gowing, who is a founding member of the World Transformation Movement (which is the movement that supports this breakthrough understanding), to describe his experience with the ‘deaf effect’, and the excitement that lies on the other side of it.


Tony Gowing’s presentation of ‘The Up River Story’

Tony Gowing


Tony Gowing: Thanks Jeremy. Yes, in my case, I actually inadvertently overcame the ‘deaf effect’ because my best mate’s sister is an active supporter of the World Transformation Movement, and when I was at university I often went with him when he visited her at the WTM. At first I only took a vague interest in their discussions about the explanation of the human condition because, like the reviewer Jeremy just mentioned, I also found it very difficult to ‘grasp’ what they were saying. Luckily for me, after happening to listen in on a number of their conversations what they were saying all started to become clear, and then, to my amazement, the whole explanation of us humans seemed so straight-forward it actually seemed obvious. Getting through the ‘deaf effect’ really is like walking out of a fog. Wilson’s description of the biological explanation of the human condition being the most ‘precious’ thing ‘in the life of’ our ‘mind’, is just so true. Man, have we been living in a fog because once you get through it being able to understand everything is really and truly just so ‘precious’! So here I am, more than 20 years later, an extremely excited full-time supporter of the WTM who’s deeply relieved to understand and have hope for the worldand best of all for me personally, to be free of the whole horror of the effects of the human condition in myself.

I tell you, this understanding does bring an end to all the pain, all the suffering, all the confusion, insecurity and uncertainty. I now know why we are the way we are, and why the world has been so mean and full of pain, and why there can now be a wondrous change of heart in every single human from being completely consumed by an incredibly insecure, mad, terrified and obsessively egocentric and selfish mindset, to a completely 100 percent secure person living out an all-meaningful, wildly exciting existence dedicated to helping make this great change from darkness and pain to an all-understanding state of freedom from the human condition. And what I’m talking about is not another deluded ‘New Age’-type, or politically-correct, dogma-based, pseudo-idealistic, false start to the human-condition-free new world that the human race has lived in hope, faith and trust would one day be possible. No, this is, as Wilson said, the ‘science’/​‘understanding’-based relief for the human ‘mind’ that actually brings about that dreamed-of transformation of all our lives. We conscious humans needed to be able to understand our way to freedom from our distressed condition; we needed relieving answers for our mind; as Jeremy often says, we needed brain food, not brain anaestheticand now, at last, and in the nick of time, we have it!

Honestly, the wonder and relief of this biological insight is just endless!


Jeremy Griffith: Thank you very much Tony. You can hear more from Tony in Video/​F. Essay 5.

In the next video, I will describe the dishonest and extremely dangerous excuse that we’ve been using for the human condition, and in the video after that, which is the third video, I’ll present this all-redeeming and all-transforming, human-race-saving biological explanation of the human condition.

Thank you for watching, and I hope you continue watching these videos.

    Powerful stuff and I agree with the commentators at the end of the video Griffith’s work is deeply profound. Before coming across the WTM I had stopped thinking about the human predicament because it seemed unsolvable but I now know we can fix the mess up in ourselves and therefore the world. I encourage everyone to seriously look into this because it does solve everything.

    I would like to thank Jeremy For the EXTRAORDINARY, UPLIFTING, ENLIGHTENING and at times CONFRONTING, never dull, The book “FREEDOM” covers so much ground and so many earth shattering ground breaking conclusions. I will now quote chapter 9:11 pathway to the sun By “Camus” ” All we then need to know is what we want. And what indeed we want is never again to bow down before the sword,never more to declare force to be in the right when it is not serving the mind. This,it is true, is an endless task. But we are here to pursue it. I do not have enough faith in reason to subscribe to a belief in progress,or to any philosophy of history. But I do at least believe that men have never ceased to grow in the knowledge of their destiny. We have not overcome our condition and yet we know it better. We know that we live in a contradiction, but that we must refuse this contradiction and do what is needed to reduce it. Our task as men is to find those few first principles that will calm the anguish of free souls. Bravo Camus, and my heartfelt thanks to Jeremy for this mammoth body of work, the Treatise “FREEDOM” I DARE YOU TO READ IT and Be Healed, Cheers to the W.T.M. team. p.s. Jeremy has found those few first principles p.p.s. I have just finished reading “FREEDOM” I think I am a “Ship At Sea”

    Good day

    I do understand this article and yes, we are aware of “the human factor”, but before people do not really take other people in consideration, nothings going to chance. Every day each person is confronted with “life’s little obstacles “, which make life hard…..if you let it ! I want to stay positive and wish that everyone can see themselves as beautiful as they are !

  • judy66 on July 20, 2017 at 9:09 pm

    I keep coming back to this essay. It is such a simple concept that if we are behind all the issues plaguing the planet, then to fix them all, you just need to fix us! Of course that presupposes that we are fixable, which is why the next essay goes on about how we suffer from a psychosis, and are not instinctively savage. But I find this one really realligns me. Just thought I’d let my appreciation be known!

    • WTM Admin on September 14, 2017 at 9:13 am

      Hi Gary, sorry to hear you had troubles buying your hard copy of ‘FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition’. I just checked Amazon and they certainly can ship to an Australia address, for roughly $35 AUD. Or, as you noted, you can buy locally from your local bookstore.
      Given the importance of the book, FREEDOM will always be made FREELY available on our website in various formats (online, pdf, ebook) so anyone on any device can easily access the book. If you have troubles downloading the book feel free to reach out for help.

  • Sabina on February 17, 2018 at 11:16 am

    This story has made me realise how, as a biologist and child of scientists, I totally embraced the helpless savage perspective of humanity early on and was always able to hold the “intellectual highground” with those who argued for “god” or inate human goodness. What if it’s all wrong? If there’s and “god” it’s that poor confused struggling ‘Adam Stork’ within us.

    • Ash on February 17, 2018 at 12:01 pm

      Yes Sabina, this is such a huge paradigm shift from how we all used to view and explain the world. It is a shock initially but as you continue to follow the logic you will discover it’s accountability and the immense relief and freedom this true biological explanation brings. You’re right, Adam Stork is the hero of all heroes!!

  • Chary on February 28, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    It’s so amazing to realized that someone understand what made my family to treat me like a pariah since when l was a teenager because I rebel against their controlling barbaric cultural beliefs, the deception they were fed with, their illusive perspective of life. Even religion is not left out, what a huge cover up? Humanity escape from Plato’s cave is foolishness, look at where we are today, we need to return to status quo and solve the puzzle.
    I hope your profound understanding awakens people’s consciousness.

      Telling you more about this amazing information the WTM is presenting could go on forever! I’ll try and be brief for me I know this will be the best thing anyone ever come across and you really do have to start and go on this journey of discovery yourself to find that out. It is just SO fascinating, SO accountable and SO liberating! It has totally transformed my life, from being a victim of the human condition to being free of it, knowing humanity has been involved in the most heroic story ever and that we have finally found self-understanding, and that we can all legitimately move on now to a completely free existence. Somewhere in the WTM material I read this quote recently, ‘stalled halfway between ape and angel is no place to stop’, and I love that, and yes we can’t stop where we are. It sounds outrageous but with this information we really can fulfill the efforts of the whole of life on Earth. I so hope you keep reading and watching the material on this website!

    Wow, this could be the antidote to the scenario proposed by Prof. Guy McPherson. Maybe – just maybe – we can actually halt our insane war-driven rush toward extinction of ourselves and most other life on Earth.

    • Conrad on May 19, 2018 at 10:33 am

      This information is the way we save humanity and our planet Pietrad, and you will only discover more and more just how much this is the ‘antidote’ to all the suffering in the world. This extract below from FAQ 6.5 is a perfect summary of what a significant breakthrough Jeremy Griffith’s work is and how crucial it is. It only becomes clearer and more obvious that focusing on climate change, as the conservation biologist Guy McPherson does, was not going to get us anywhere.
      “There has been much talk of the need to love each other and the environment, but the real need on Earth has been to love the dark side of ourselves, to find reconciling and redeeming understanding of our species’ extraordinary capacity for brutality, selfish indifference to others, hate, anger, oppression, meanness, cruelty, devastation and destruction — to explain the psychological origins of our deeply distressed so-called human condition and by so doing heal our troubled souls and set ourselves free. And it is precisely that all-important explaining, redeeming, reconciling and liberating understanding of ourselves that is presented in biologist Jeremy Griffith’s work.”

    I read Alvin Toflers Future Shock when it hit the market and was scorned at about it,because of their lack of understanding.I would just say if you could write understanding across the sky who would understand it, that seemed to silence them.Looking forward to get started on freedom as this is a problem that goes back to early Egypt.Till next time take care ,have a great day.

  • Nan Howit on May 25, 2018 at 8:31 pm

    I suspect you’re right. I can feel the anger that my situation is landing me with and yes it has potential to be destructive..perhaps it’s fortunate that it’s only me that suffers from this anger and depression since I’m a controlled and responsible person!!
    My depression arises from my age 77 and my disability I need to walk with 2 sticks. I’ve worked so hard to achieve this level of activity but no amount of work will improved the situation which in fact is getting worse. I feel frustrated because this guy is so slow coming up with the answer..i suspect I have to buy a book. If so say so. I doubt my humanity can be healed but believe me my pain is great.

    Prior to receiving this information, I was telling you the youth that pass through my day, you were put in prison, upon your birth a time stamp and date was put on a certificate that became your prison, time only exists in the distance between each Breath You Take, sometimes there longer sometimes they’re shorter sometimes their heavier sometimes they’re lighter, each one contains the messages of life, I travel 10000 light years when I sleep, and I haven’t yet dreams, not until I get the lessons can I truly formulate my dream, so I feel my day with breaths, and my breaths they turn into sunshine, in serendipity, there’s no second hand, there’s no alarms.
    Now, this information… these are huge gasps yes, enormous deep and long, however, you never reach the capacity of that breath.
    I’ve taken 2 steps, I feel this Marathon, I feel I designed the route, I’m just reviewing it, we’re about to go on a great run, I’m ready to breathe!

      Thank you for your interest in the WTM John George. Yes, the Austrian WTM Centre is in the process of translating into German, the Freedom Essay series, ‘FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition’, and its condensation, ‘Transform Your Life And Save The World’ — and has already translated Jeremy’s online publication ‘The Rising Sun’. You can access this on their website There is also the option of going to our YouTube channel to watch our videos using subtitles translated into German. You may be aware of this YouTube function but if you aren’t I have included instructions at the end of this email. Even though the translation isn’t 100% accurate it does allow you to watch all our videos, especially our Homepage Video Series. The first 4 videos of this series have received excellent feedback as being key presentations so they are a must-watch. The new Video 4 is particularly important in making it completely clear that the instinct vs intellect explanation is the true explanation of the human condition, and in the process reveals where the core insecurity of our condition, that has been driving all our upset behaviour, has been coming from.
      For YouTube subtitles
      Go to the WTM YouTube channel
      Select the video you wish to watch
      At the bottom right of the video player there are 4 icons
      Click on the ‘Subtitles/closed captions’ icon to turn the subtitles on
      Then click on the ‘Settings’ icon and select ‘Subtitles/cc’, then ‘Auto-translate’ and then select the language

  • Mike Kerr on September 12, 2018 at 4:42 pm

    Very interesting, been thinking a lot about this lately, the human condition and the future. Your expansion of old knowledge using the latest understanding may be a step forward. However, we need to remember Empathy and Reconciliation need to be the first steps to heal our violent present state of affairs. I wish the ones in charge would read the book or at the very least listen to their conscience and let the past differences go.

    My major worry is a Dustbowl as seen in another Australian Movie Saga’s tried to warn us about. So spread this message fast and make them listen to your movement and make them put down their tools of destruction and make their way “up the river” that can be viewed beautifully from the top of a Rock in your Beautiful Country with a Vibrant and Very old culture that had deeper understanding of the Dreamland that can lead us to a Beautiful Future.

    Just some random thoughts after my first coffee.

    Wish you All the Best

  • Gwendolen on October 9, 2018 at 6:33 am

    Hi, I’m new. I have read Freedom up to Chapter 3 and I am just getting to the essays, and was wondering if they are just revisiting the introductory videos? I watched the first 4 videos before I downloaded the book. I was hoping for more…information or more discussion or….just something more. I think the WTM is on to something and I want in!!! How can I be more active? What else can be done to get this information out there? Please advise. Many thanks.

    • Susan on October 9, 2018 at 6:32 pm

      Hi Gwendolen, Thank you for your wonderful comment and interest in the WTM. Our bi-weekly Freedom Essay series begins with the Introductory Video series and then continues to guide subscribers through much of the content of Jeremy Griffith’s definitive book ‘FREEDOM: The End of The Human Condition’ in beautifully illustrated bite-size pieces. They are an excellent way to introduce yourself to these ideas, providing explanatory insight into the magnitude of these ideas and their ability to transform every human and thus the world. The short booklet ‘Transform Your Life and Save The World’, which is a summary of ‘FREEDOM’, is also an easy way to introduce yourself to this information. In terms of becoming more active in your support, there is a great overview of how to get more involved in the WTM on the Transformation Page of our website here.

  • Darina Tkacik on October 13, 2018 at 6:11 pm

    Dear tender,
    German sociologist and psychologist, Erich Fromm in his book “Fear of Freedom” explains in simple way why human are unable to live in total freedom. Extremely ibteresting reading.
    Basically human are heardal creatures meaning need a leader to follow up instructions. In a another version human kind don’t have consensus of thoughts and/or understandings of the same situation or item, or ideology, or art an culture, or regime, and or meaning of good or bad. We need leaders. One most simple example is religion… there are multiple beliefs and religion’s over world… multiple heards with multiple leaders preaching different theories… the peopke are confused… and taken advantage of from leaders. Basically we are SELFDISTRUCTIVE… greed…lies.. selfishness.. would take our so called civilization to an end… unfortunately we still didn’t learn the lesson from past civilizations.

    • Susy on October 14, 2018 at 11:58 am

      Hi Darina, I agree humanity hasn’t been able to be free without a full understanding of our behaviour, but I wanted to add what I have experienced that now biological understanding of our human condition has arrived because true liberation from it is on for young and old. I only have a little understanding of Eric Fromm’s work and have read that he did hold dearly to the belief that humanity could have a ‘full realisation of positive freedom’ and this information does completely fulfill that dream. This truly is a tremendously exciting time and a fulfillment of all of humanity’s heroic hopes, dreams and efforts. This information finally brings an understanding to why we are fundamentally good when we appear so bad and ‘self-destructive’, ‘selfish’, ‘greedy’ etc and why all the suffering and destructiveness has been for such an amazing, heroic reason. And given that, it can now all end. The truth really does set us free. Understanding of ourselves is the best ‘leader’ of all as it brings us all home to our soulful world and reconciles us with it and all it’s unconditionally loving ways, making us a sound, effective manager of ourselves and our world. Importantly I also wanted to add that I also know Fromm was heavily influenced by Karl Marx and I really agree with what Jeremy writes about Marx in Freedom para 299 where he said his “mid-nineteenth century theories gave rise to socialism and communism, was very wrong when he asserted that ‘The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is [not to understand the world but] to change it [just make it cooperative/social/communal]’. The whole ‘point’ and responsibility of being a conscious being is to understand our world and our place in it—ultimately, to find understanding of our seemingly horribly flawed human condition.”

  • Cliff Matashu Lumwayo on October 15, 2018 at 8:50 am

    I believe this will make every human understand that the kind of love the Bible talks about.

  • pixie on October 16, 2018 at 10:45 am

    I have given Jeremy Griffith’s explanation of the human condition to my loved ones before, only to have them look at me blankly. I knew that they were secretly afraid of the subject, but they didn’t, and I could’t get them to look any deeper, and it is difficult not to be able to share this beautiful truth with friends and family. Well Mr Griffith, it looks like you have created the solution for me! There you are, on the screen, telling them why this makes them as skittish as foals, and to just be patient patient patient, and the blinds will lift, just like they did for Tony. Thank you so much.

  • Teresa Lees on October 16, 2018 at 10:49 am

    So far the videos have eluded to some kind of secret that has yet to be revealed about how to transform the human condition, or how to get past the “Deaf Affect.” So, please go ahead and tell us what the answer is. I don’t want us to dwell on the problems anymore. Please focus on the solutions.

    • WTM Admin on October 16, 2018 at 2:24 pm

      Hi Teresa, The ‘wonderful gift’ that frees humanity of all its suffering is the liberating instinct vs intellect explanation of the human condition that is presented in Video/F. Essay 3. But as the Essay above 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.
      We do hope you persevere with re-reading and/or re-watching the material Teresa as it does take some time to fully appreciate the extent of our denial and the impact this has on the way we perceive or respond to the presentation. We highly recommend you read Freedom Essay 11 which includes some very powerful quotes from people who have overcome their personal ‘deaf effect’ (which is explained in the Essay above) and have then been able to access this most ‘wonderful gift’. Freedom Essay 12 contains a helpful deaf-effect-eroding presentation and the beginning of the WTM’s interactive Deaf Effect Course can be found in Freedom Essay 13.

    • Tommy on October 16, 2018 at 2:33 pm

      Hi Teresa, yes I relate to where you are at but the answer really is in continuing to absorb the info as the other replies say. The ‘secret’ ‘solution’ you can’t get your hands on is written right there in essay no.3, it honestly is, but it’s just that we are so scared to death of this whole subject of the HC (never having had understanding of it) that we can’t hear/see it at first. In essay no.12 it has quoted that one person trying to read this material said at first all they could see were a lot of black marks on white paper! It is an astonishing situation to find ourselves in but that’s denial for you, we are just in complete denial of this whole subject in ourselves and you’ll see more and more why we’ve had to be but that we don’t have to be anymore! Give yourself some time, it will sink in and you’ll discover just as I did that this understanding really does answer any and every question, and solves any and every problem you throw at it. Humanity is free but it just takes us some time to wake up to it! Hope with all my heart that you keep reading!

  • PaulM on October 16, 2018 at 10:55 am

    This is one of the hardest messages to absorb; I know this from my own experience. My background is science, and to have someone suggest that I would not be able to understand something straight up did not sit easily with me. But for reasons I will not go into here, I did persist, and I was genuinely surprised to find that before long I could comprehend what had previously been incomprehensible to me. So I can vouch for the effectiveness of this process, and I am grateful that I persisted because this framework of knowledge never leaves me now.

  • Stephen on October 16, 2018 at 2:36 pm

  • Dave on October 17, 2018 at 12:10 am

    Thanks for the gift of the HC and the video. Love how Jeremey recommends patient perservernce. I initally found the information understandable and incredibly engaging, but actually accepting it and living it also takes patient perserverence. The WTM information has been one of the best parts of my life, especially with regard to loving my wife, kids and others. It is wonderfult to know this informtion is out there. This video has motivated me to spread it as much as I can.

  • Donald on October 17, 2018 at 1:43 pm

    What interests me about this film is that this person is talking from outside the jail we all live in. It really is coming from outside the cave prison of Plato’s that he talks about. How did he get out there? How could he have become so immune to the human condition? Dr. Griffith doesn’t seem to be aware of this question, or at least seem to acknowledge it. The prospect that is so interesting to me is that he must have found the path out of what actually has been every human’s terrifying hell on earth, and nothing that I’ve been able to find so far contradicts that proposition, but I’m still thinking about a lot of things that are said here. All very interesting indeed.

    • WTM Admin on October 17, 2018 at 2:12 pm

      Hi Donald, Thank you for your interest in the WTM. Jeremy, and we all here at the WTM, are very aware that he and we couldn’t be ‘bouncing around’ so freely in the realm of the human condition if the redeeming and safe path out of that terrible state hadn’t actually been found, but we are grateful to you for pointing it out. In his Introduction to ‘FREEDOM’, in paragraph 9, Professor Prosen explains why Jeremy is able to live so freely outside ‘Plato’s cave’ or the ‘jail we all live in’ as you say. Jeremy also answers this question directly in Webinar 1 at the following link,
      By the way Jeremy graduated in science from Sydney University but for reasons Professor Prosen explains in paragraph 32 of ‘FREEDOM’ he didn’t pursue a PhD so he isn’t actually a Dr in the mechanistic paradigm.

  • Monte John Latham on October 18, 2018 at 4:59 pm

    Gday mates,
    Is not the being and doing of Jesus the Nazarene not the most important event ever, rather than this book?

    • Susan on October 19, 2018 at 9:00 am

      You are right Monte to emphasise Christ’s life and its phenomenal importance in humanity’s journey and you may be interested to read the enlightening Freedom Essay 39 titled ‘Christ Explained’. You will see there it is explained that as there was no science in Christ’s day, no first-principle-based insights into the workings of our world, the human condition could not actually be explained and solved, as it now has been which is the great significance of ‘FREEDOM’. As is further presented in ‘FREEDOM’ at paragraph 1217, this dignifying understanding actually fulfils religion as the whole purpose of them was to be the custodian of the ideal state while the search for the liberating understanding of humans’ ‘fallen’ condition was underway. As is quoted there, Christ himself looked forward to the arrival of the amelioration of the human condition when he said, ‘another Counsellor to be with you forever—the Spirit of truth [the denial-free, truthful, first-principle-based, scientific understanding]…will teach you all things and will remind you of everything [all the denial-free truths] I have said to you’ (John 14:16, 17, 26). Christ similarly said he looked forward to when, instead of being restricted to ‘speaking figuratively’, we ‘will no longer use this kind of language but will [be able to] tell you plainly about my Father [be able to explain the world of Integrative Meaning in denial-free, human-condition-reconciled, compassionate, understandable, rational, first principle, scientific terms]’ (John 16:25). What is explained in ‘FREEDOM’ Monte at last makes it possible to explain and demystify everything about our world including religion and the significant lives of the greatest prophets. It is an absolute feast of knowledge and liberation for the human mind and I do hope you continue your interest in the WTM’s work!

  • Roger on October 19, 2018 at 9:05 am

    Part of me just wants to start cheering … the logic of that video is so powerful I would challenge any human to find a hole in the argument. It’s exciting watching the people at the end commenting because I can see I’m not alone in my thoughts.
    It explained the problem I ran into perfectly … I didn’t realise just how practiced I was at avoiding any topic that brought human behaviour into focus, without an explanation the human condition is suicidally depressing … but now with it finally explained the human condition becomes the most exciting topic or issue on the planet.
    I should say that it was patience and perseverance that worked for me. I just kept going back to the logic of the Introduction Video and it kept adding up.
    Thanks you so much to Jeremy Griffith and all the people supporting his work.

  • James Woodford on October 19, 2018 at 9:08 am

    If it’s any help to others, what revealed the ‘deaf effect’ to me and got my interest in this started was that I made a decision to re-watch the first 5 videos again and again. What happened was that sure enough each time I was astonished how much I had missed the previous time. There was so much I hadn’t ‘heard’ the previous time they were like new videos each time. Try it and you’ll see what I mean!
    I think what everyone in the world needs to do is watch the first 5 videos on this website 4 times and the world will be saved! If that could be made into law at the United Nations that would be perfect because this really is the doorway to a whole new life for humans. Just re-watch the first 5 videos and you will get it!

    • WTM Admin on October 19, 2018 at 9:13 am

      You may have to watch a little more than the first 5 presentations, but we certainly think James’s strategy of re-watching those first videos is excellent.

  • Donna Porter on November 20, 2018 at 2:43 pm

    I am interested in the Improvement of our human species. In the last year or two I have noticed a complete separation of some people. The psyche of the human race seems to be dividing into the spiritually enlightened and those that are getting ready to ascend to the next level of existence and of those that are starting to embrace their animalistic instincts and almost seem like they are reverting to a lesser level. I am very interested in why this seems to be happening.

    • Evelyn Paoletti on December 15, 2018 at 2:35 am

      This is what I am interested in too, but Improvement of our human species does not include anything “Mechanical”.
      Humans need to become truly human – I’m hoping that’s a good thing not a bad thing. Humans can be extremely deceiving and often diabolical. I live in Winnipeg Manitoba, and about 3 years ago a 57 year old mother and grandmother and wife, was abducted right off the street on a warm sunny summer day. No one found her – until this Autumn. Her remains were found several miles outside the City by a hunter and his son. Why did they grab her. Her name is Thelma Krull. She keeps touching my heart and I don’t know why. I never knew her, and we never met – at least I don’t think so, unless maybe in a Cashier line-up, but I doubt that. Some say she was targeted.
      I don’t understand any of this. Possibly Gang Initiation related. The Police have a suspect, but still have not found or apprehended him.
      It’s the violence and the imposing themselves on another living being, such as Persons, Dogs, Horses, and other animals I would love to see come to an end for good. I have noticed the “Separation” even in my own family. A son who claims to be a Christian, very seldom calls to see how his ill father is doing. I do not understand any of this anymore. There is so much good in people – but where is it?

    • RJ on December 17, 2018 at 8:35 am

      I am so glad you both have found this website Donna and Evenlyn. What I’ve realised reading all this stuf is that only biological understanding of oursevles will heal the psychological divide that exists within and between each of us and that is exactly what the WTM presents. All of human behviour is finally explained, why we on the one hand are so loving but on the other so extremely deceitful and violent as you say Evelyn. Explained and defended human behaviour can finally change and all the horror going on on earth can end, and love can finally, legitimately, return to us all and our planet. I think you’ll both get a lot out of reading or watching the next few videos/essays (maybe even the first five videos as as someone suggests below) including the next one called Debunking the ‘savage instincts’ excuse for human behaviour, it certainly was priceless for me.

    • Paddy Crean on January 4, 2019 at 8:59 am

      Much as I appreciate the sentiment that inspires your statement and aspiration, I must point out that the destruction of the planet that we are all participating in is a consequence of our belief that we are its owners.

      • Cas on January 4, 2019 at 2:41 pm

        I’m pretty new to this but the question for me Paddy is why are we so egocentric that we feel we own the planet? Where did that egocentricity come from? I really agree with the WTM that this is the real issue that must be addressed, the issue of why humans are are at the end of the day so selfish and uncaring that we have nearly destroyed our own planet. The instinct v intellect thesis really does make sense of this for me, it’s very accountable stuff!

  • Randy Deane on December 6, 2018 at 4:22 am

    • Lizzy on December 6, 2018 at 10:44 am

    • Tommy on January 17, 2019 at 11:32 am

      Hi May. As with Teresa’s comment below I do relate to where you are at with absorbing this info but the answer really is in continuing to patiently digest it as the essay itself and other replies here say. The comment from James Woodford below says that what helped him was to watch the first 5 videos (in the first 5 essays) again and again which revealed the ‘deaf effect’ to him. The actual biological explanation of the human condition which does transform our lives is presented in video/essay 3. The huge problem May that this essay talks about is that never having had understanding of the HC before, we humans have been just so scared to death of this whole long-forbidden and exiled subject, so at first we literally can’t hear/see discussion about it. It is an astonishing situation to find ourselves in but that’s denial for you, we are just in complete denial of this whole subject in ourselves and you’ll see more and more why we’ve had to be but that we don’t have to be anymore! Give yourself some time, re-watch the videos, erode your ‘deaf effect’, the info will sink in and you’ll discover, just as I did, that this understanding really does answer any and every question, and solves and transforms any and every problem you throw at it. Humanity is liberated from the HC but it just takes us some time to wake up to it!

  • Aerts Gabrielle on January 18, 2019 at 12:39 am

    Many words to say something which is logic and wise hihihi
    When you do good to others, you are truly helpful and joyful and always remind yourself of never doing something which does feel wrong to you and others, and always try to place yourself into the situation of those who need help, this is a lifestyle which enlightens your daily life with many incredible joyful moments..
    It is in line with the guidelines of the Dalai lama. I just read a book about it, written by Daniel Goleman.

    • Susan on January 18, 2019 at 8:50 am

      Hi Gabrielle. Thank you for you interest in the WTM. In regard to religion, as it says in paragraph 1222 of ‘FREEDOM’ the Dalia Lama himself says that we suffer from a ‘universal crisis’ and in order to produce a universally acceptable reconciled new potential for humanity we need a ‘universal remedy’ that religion can ‘never be’. The significance of this biological explanation of the human condition takes some time and patience to absorb Gabrielle, but the more you do absorb it, the more you realise just how all-redeeming, all-reconciling, all-liberating it is.

  • Tony Noble on January 18, 2019 at 3:42 pm

    Hi guys I have explored the power of the mind for many years from a Holistic veiw. With understanding myself I was blown away when I learnt that the human race was heading into total distruction. I call it the me, me mindset and most need to evolve into a we, we mindset. It is such a destructive mindset and most dont know that they are living it. They have been condition from birth as the rest. I have much to talk on this subject we both may come from different angles but are looking at the same condition. Change for humans is so scary that they continue doing the same thing even if that means getting something they are not happy with. I believe we all are now living in the time when great change is going to take place and is allready in motion. It require true leaders, leaders who beleive in the benefit for all and everything. What I am saying is I dont need to be convinced of a the core issue I see it every day and working towards bringing others to be aware of there distructive behaviours to live the life they are meant to live a selfless one.

    • Monica Kodet on January 19, 2019 at 2:37 pm

      Hi Tony. Thank you very much for your interest in the WTM and support. It does take a while to digest the great significance of this biological understanding of the human condition. As you absorb this more you will see that it explains there has been a very good, in fact heroic, reason for why as a species we have been so selfish and destructive and we maintain that only by understanding the psychological origins of our deeply distressed human condition can it be brought to an end. Humans need to understand their way to freedom and back to the selfless loving world that we came from and we all so dream of returning to.

    • Boyd Jacob Price on June 14, 2019 at 6:22 pm

      Yes, the “I.” I meant to touch on this, as the first post was heavily laden. Humility is the recognition of Oneness, true knowledge of the concept so much so that personal identity is lost in the One of Timelessness. Here, access to that “collective knowledge” is jaw-dropping awe. I call it the Spiritual Internet.

  • Dr Judith Edwards on January 24, 2019 at 12:04 am

    Hi thanks for this- I wrote and published an memoir called ‘Pieces of Molly’ which addressed the point Montaigne talked of- the patchwork of pieces-I read Plato’s cave when I was 14 at school so that’s 60 years ago and found it very exciting…yes we do prefer to be ‘deaf’ or ‘to turn a blind eye’ and there are cognitive dissonances inside all our minds..but as someone said on the responses:
    “So far the videos have alluded to some kind of secret that has yet to be revealed about how to transform the human condition, or how to get past the “Deaf Affect.” So, please go ahead and tell us what the answer is. I don’t want us to dwell on the problems anymore. Please focus on the solutions.”
    Thanks a lot for your reciprocal comments- not sure how to access them thanks for letting ,me know..
    .Best regards, Judith Edwards

    • Monica Kodet on January 24, 2019 at 2:30 pm

      Thank you very much Dr Edwards for your interest in the WTM and it is fascinating to read a little of your background. Yes, as the Essay above says, and many reciprocal comments below, 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.
      What is required to overcome the ‘deaf effect’ is patience and perseverence by re-reading and/or re-watching the material. We do recommend people start with the first 4 videos on our website (which are at the top of our homepage, this Video/Essay being the first. As the last paragraph in the Essay above says, “In the next video, I will describe the dishonest and extremely dangerous excuse that we’ve been using for the human condition, and in the video after that, which is the third video, I’ll present this all-redeeming and all-transforming, human-race-saving biological explanation of the human condition.” The latter Video/Freedom Essay 3 explains and reconciles the most enormous ‘cognitive dissonances inside all our minds’, that of the clash between our instinctive and intellectual selves which produced the human condition. Video/Freedom Essay 4 is important in making it completely clear that the instinct vs intellect explanation is the true explanation of the human condition, and in the process revealing where the core insecurity of our condition that has been driving all our upset behaviour has been coming from. We also highly recommend Freedom Essay 11 ( which includes some very powerful quotes from people who have overcome their personal ‘deaf effect’ and have then been able to access this most ‘wonderful gift’.

    Very informative so far! Is this the start of a new Spiritual movement?

    • Susan on May 16, 2019 at 9:32 am

      Glad to hear you’re enjoying it all Al! Bringing biological understanding to our lives, this information does finally reconcile our conscious mind/intellect and conscience/soul/instincts and brings about a huge spiritual awakening in humans but there is no faith or dogma involved — in fact it represents the end of faith and dogma and the beginning of knowing. We recommend that people watch Video/Freedom Essays 1 – 4 and 14 to fast track their introduction to these ideas, and Video/Freedom Essay 5 is also important. Titled ‘The Transformation of the human race’ it outlines how different this is to all new age movements and religious faiths. This movement will sweep the world and end all the suffering on earth but this transformation is all quietly driven by simple, rational, biological logic.

  • Boyd Jacob Price on June 14, 2019 at 6:09 pm

    I don think it really matters if my email is published or not.

    As the world, I assume, is light years more aware of me than me, I want to say myself that specifically the last 5 or so years has been an exercise in resilience and patience. It has been extremely lonely, moreso as the years have accumulated.

    I made major breakthroughs today like no other before, which is to say something quite special if you knew the complexity of my cognitive experiences.

    What has happened has happened. I can’t change it. What I can do is live up to the insights gleaned so that others, hopefully all, do no have to ever walk through the valley I am in now. I am a bit overwhelmed, but I would like to think I have the confidence in God, or whatever you wanna say, will see me through. I am truly honored to face the task.

    One night in Carpenteria, having hiked up Franklin Trail, I slept on the concrete base of one of the Thomas power lines. Before passing out, I sipped down a pint of vodka all the while excoriating God and His ridiculously long, contradictory and incomprehensible book stating that, “If I can’t understand it, how is anyone else?” Being humbled on the daily has situated me closer than ever to making that audaciuos, but believed, statement come into reality.

    I’m sorry, thank you and please continue to bear with me as this process has yet to circle round. I know talk is cheap and words only scratch. I will devote all my efforts from this day forward to seeing solutions that hopefully will change the human’s most perplexing adversaries.


  • Jack F on June 15, 2019 at 2:27 pm

    I understand this phenomenon of fear making it difficult to absorb information that you talk of. My smaller experience of it was with a relative when they were given a cancer diagnosis and afterwards they hadn’t heard anything the specialist said, including some positive news, except for they had cancer. I will persevere with this information you present, it is intriguing, and I’m hoping true as we certainly are in need of an overall cure so to speak. Thank you for the guidance.

  • Yahya on July 17, 2019 at 1:28 am

    Your lengthy treatise on why people fear to be told of the human condition was tedious to say the least.TOO MANY adjectives to describe an emotion and in the end you have explained nothing of the human condition itself.Disappointing read of this first transcript.You keep repeating the same thing in different ways.

    • Genevieve on July 17, 2019 at 10:48 am

      Thank you very much for your interest in the WTM Yahya. The reconciling and rehabilitating explanation of the human condition that you are looking for is presented in Video/F. Essay 3. However, as this Essay introduces, people have great difficulty initially accessing or ‘hearing’ these insights because the whole subject 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 information. 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 or is unnecessarily repetitive.

      We suggest that with patient re-reading and watching the deaf effect can be overcome and we do recommend re-watching/reading the first 4 videos of our Introductory Video Series 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 such questions as ‘why can’t I understand what this is all about?’ and ‘why is there so much apparent repetition?’. 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, and we very much hope you will persevere.

  • Brenda on August 7, 2019 at 2:40 pm

    Having had my introduction to Transformation just today, and at a ripe old age, I am filled with hope. Equally I am struck with a dreadful fear that I am not clever enough to understand it, lack the concentration to persevere and will be left let down by myself in not arriving, not finding the holy grail. This is after all what the journey is all about.

    • Susan on August 7, 2019 at 3:46 pm

      It’s wonderful to have your interest in our work Brenda! The human condition has been the most terrifying of subjects for humans and while it does produce a ‘deaf effect’ initially in most people, as this essay talks about, the explanation of the human condition (which is presented in Video/Freedom Essay 3) is actually a very simple and obvious truth. Given the nature of our fear though, patient perseverance is required to absorb the significance of these ideas and I would start with watching Videos 1-4 & 14 at least a couple of times and see if that doesn’t remove your block to the most wonderful of all gifts! You are exactly right that the whole purpose of our journey on Earth was to find this holy grail of biological insight to liberate us from the human condition and we send you lots and lots of encouragement to keep exploring our material Brenda.

  • Carole Kuyer on August 11, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    I have read lots of this information and book Freedom. I guess I must still b resigned as in my head I understand to a degree, but still can’t seem to grasp the real understanding of the reality of it.
    I understand that when we became conscious a part of us was criticised and that was the start of our problem (of feeling bad evil)
    I still can’t understand why on knowing this I am still resigned. Do I only know it on one level. Sincerely Carole.

    • Genevieve on August 12, 2019 at 12:55 pm

      It’s wonderful to have your interest Carole. A big part of the nature of the human condition is that humans have had to cope, until we could solve it, by living in denial of it and even though there is obviously a lot that has resonated with you for you to spend time looking into our work, it typically takes some time to break through that denial and see the full significance of at last able being able to make sense of the great paradox of human life, how we humans are good when we appear to be the complete opposite. So continuing to explore and consider it is exactly what we recommend—especially watching Videos 1-5 & 14 of our Introductory Video Series, along with talking to others who are similarly interested.

      With the dark side of our nature truthfully explained and defended and our fundamental goodness established we no longer have to behave insecurely and selfishly, we no longer have to prove our worth, which is the mental state we took up when we resigned to living in denial of the human condition. We can now legitimately return to a selfless way of living and this is the rapidly transforming effect of being able to understand the human condition. To understand the transformation process more we would recommend Freedom Essay 15. A more comprehensive treatment is presented in chapter 9 of FREEDOM with sections 9:4 and 9:9 being particularly instructive.

    Thank you so much. I have just started reading. It is hard to make it my own. Now and then I can see a glimpse of the sun. deep down I know this is the absolute truth. But my mind has difficulties understanding the logic of it all. Looking foreward to the deaf effect video’s.

    • Susan on September 21, 2019 at 11:49 am

      It’s very important that we make this our own as you say Jolanda and as this is all knowledge-driven, based on rational, first-principle-based biology and there being no dogma or mysticism or abstract concept involved, it is all there for people to verify for themselves. The difficulty you are experiencing in absorbing this information is not uncommon as this Essay talks about. The truth is that the human condition has been the most terrifying of subjects for humans and while it does produce a ‘deaf effect’ initially in most people, the explanation of the human condition (which is presented in Video/Freedom Essay 3) is actually a very simple and obvious truth. Given the nature of our fear though, patient perseverance is required to absorb the significance of these ideas and I would start with watching Videos 1-4 & 14 at least a couple of times and see if that doesn’t help make your ‘glimpses of the sun’ of understanding into vivid sunrises! It’s wonderful to have your interest Jolanda and we send you lots and lots of encouragement to continue exploring our material.

        Thank you for your support Susan. It is very helpfull!

  • Ari Akritidis on November 11, 2019 at 9:12 pm

    I absolutely love this video. I suffered from the deaf effect for nearly a decade!
    Unlike my brother who got is so much easier than me. He was obviously less resigned and attributes this to me taking the punches (metaphorically speaking) when he was a child and thus protecting him from extreme dishonestly and corruption (of course I didn’t realise I was doing this – I was just being a big brother).

    Anyway, the first time I read a species in denial, I commented to my brother that it was poorly written, repetitive, boring etc. etc. I read the whole book and still did not even understand what the human condition was. I said to him, ‘what the hell is the human condition?’

    He advised me to put it down for a while and then a year later asked me to read it again.
    I now know that I needed more time to put down my inhibitions, my conditioning, I needed to face my fears, to give it a chance. To listen, to absorb, to be patient.
    I got it. I got it. It made sense. Not all of it, but much of it just made so much sense.

    But even then, I spent the next few years resisting the urge to study it more closely. To learn the key concepts. To truly and honestly work out who I was, where I’m from and why I’m here.

    I was happy to take the win out of knowing we were good heroic creatures and take the relief of that information and even use it to my advantage in my day to day resigned world dealings.

    Thankfully and due to some real nurturing and encouragement from loved ones, I put down my shield and spear once and for all and dived into the heart of Jeremy’s work. I am not transformed and I am not yet free but it’s coming. Slowly but surely and ever so patiently I am on the train which leads to the other side.

    I have read some of the posts below and to those that have dipped their toes in the water, don’t be afraid. You are champions and legends for even getting that far. But please my brothers and sisters, you have nothing to fear or lose by giving this a chance. A real chance.

    This is the holy grail of life on earth. Our origins, our journey, our behaviour, nature and most of all our pain is fully explained. You will be able to understand yourself (very important) first and therefore you will be defended and not condemned.

    Everything we have done, good and bad, was absolutely necessary to get to this point. Our behaviour is explained and therefore explanation = understanding = compassion = love.

    As you watch the next few videos you will see the obvious battle between the instinct and the intellect as the cause of our upset state, and then cherish the concept of integrative meaning as the purpose of life on earth.

    There is no greater gift than understanding. True meaning to your life rather than blind hope and dogma. The deaf effect can be beaten by patience and perseverance. It’s true. We’ve done it. You beauty.

  • T Kock on November 14, 2019 at 3:25 am

    The solution to all these problems that you are talking about has been solved long ago by Jesus Christ’s coming to earth and by the Holy Bible that was given to us so long ago. You “clever” people are wasting your time with all these theories!
    Rather go to Jesus with all your heart and the problems will disappear.

    • Carole on November 30, 2019 at 6:59 pm

      Unfortunately people need to be reminded of this, we should thankfull tho that there are people out there in different ways that are trying to reach out to people who long to change but are stuck in the mind set and ways that this gentleman refer to but criticism of people that are only trying to help is another example .. I don’t connect with this particular gentleman but I hear and listen to other who work in a similar way…

  • Ari on November 14, 2019 at 1:32 pm

    Unfortunately it doesn’t T Kock.
    Jesus preached love and compassion because he knew that was our true purpose but he (we – humanity) didn’t have the scientific and biological tools (knowledge) to solve the true riddle of the human condition.
    This information doesn’t diminish or dismiss the role Jesus played. In fact it glorifies it and praises it and he is a true prophet who stood against tyranny in the name of humanity and love. He was our saviour and gave people a ‘life jacket’ in what were (and still are) very difficult times.
    However the premise of all religions is that we (only humans and not other animals) are ‘God’ like and if we behave, we are rewarded with eternal life in a place called ‘heaven’ but if we don’t behave, we are punished with eternal misery in a place called ‘hell’. It’s a belief system that gave meaning to a difficult time and still gives meaning today to millions of people across the globe.
    However there are many things that religion does not explain because quite simply it could not. It is dogma, i.e. have faith without knowledge or understanding.
    Jeremy covers this brilliantly when he discusses the Garden of Eden and the requirement to eat the apple from the tree of knowledge. It’s brilliant. In the original story, Adam and Eve were condemned as evil for eating from the tree of knowledge, but this scientific explanation explains that they/we were good to seek knowledge. We could not explain this until we had accumulated sufficient knowledge to solve the puzzle which is what Jeremy has now done!
    Jeremy’s research and findings have reconciled religion, biology, science and anthropology to unlock the mystery of our divisive and competitive state when the ideals of all religions is to be loving, caring and selfless.
    This information delves into the depths of the cave (i.e. to explore the dark side of ourselves) to uncover the reasons behind our situation.
    Overcoming the deaf effect is one of the first steps to be able to hear and see. This information explains why it is true and natural to behave in accordance with the religious scriptures. Not just to receive the reward of eternal life, but because of integrative meaning and our natural orientation to love one another.
    If one is to truly debate Jeremy’s research one must first open up their mind to possibilities other than those we have been taught or conditioned with to adopt (again understandably and necessarily).
    Every man and woman, religious or not, of every race, tribe and culture on earth is an absolute hero.
    We will soon have a future where our earth will be our heaven.

  • Vengadesan Naiker on November 27, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    I wonder whether this organisation has found the solution to solve world problems and truly said that the way to solve the problems is to understand the human mind. I am interested also in a small part to play in solving this human malaise which is so insurmountable. The main problem is GREED, SELFISHNESS, and the propensity to DOMINATE others and too MATERIALISTIC way of life. Originally, religions appeared to have the solution but they cause more destruction and conflicts among mankind, and millions were killed in the name of God, in the past and even now.

    My best regards.

    • RJ on December 4, 2019 at 6:38 pm

      As a woman Philippa I can imagine saying something along those lines myself but now I have absorbed this wonderful explanation of the human condition my view on human behaviour including men’s has changed 180 degrees, it’s an absolute game changer! It allows us to understand for the first time all about the real world of men and the truly heroic job they have been doing on behalf of all of humanity, and it’s honestly so relieving to finally be able to understand it all, and in fact the good and meaningful reason for all our upset on Earth! It brings dialogue to this most polarised of areas which is just so relieving, as without it, the rift the human condition produced between the sexes has just caused escalating amounts of hurt and confusion! It explains the historically inexplicable of how we could be good when we appear so bad, and why men particularly have been destructive, aggressive, selfish and where it all came from and really does produce a true equality and reconciliation between the sexes, it’s just absolutely phenomenal to be honest! I’d really recommend you read this essay to learn more Arm in arm men and women and children of all races and all ages walk out of this wasteland together, and into a new reconciled, understanding-filled world, it’s just magnificent! It’s a lot to get your head around though, at first it will seem even blasphemous, but I promise the more you absorb it all the more you’ll see just how truly reconciling and liberating this info is!

  • Lyn Harrod. on December 25, 2019 at 3:29 pm

    Judith, I agree that collectively those who have the means to influence change should work together towards viable and well thought out solutions. Every country,every city, every family, every individual etc as an example, has their own set of advantages and disadvantages. In other words one solution is not for all…..’Different strokes for different folks’. For workable solutions to be possible you have to identify the particular issues. By doing so, then a solution can be worked towards. Any solution requires investment…Some large, others small. That all comes back to a budget which is available due to investment. Either Charity. Tax or rates etc. So the solutions will have to be financially possible. The ideology behind that process is outlined perfectly in this organisation. It gives me much hope that those who can influence will understand the concept and it’s complexity.I find it very inspirational and always pride myself on solving problems, rather than adding fuel to the fire.

      Thank you for your interest Bill. The biological explanation of the human condition is presented in Video/Freedom Essay 3. It is important to emphasise however, as this Essay introduces, humans have historically been very fearful of the subject of the human condition. Our minds suffer from a ‘deaf effect’ to what is being presented, with the consequence being that we initially struggle to read and absorb the liberating and transforming explanation of ourselves. Then, not knowing why we can’t take in what’s being written, we blame the presentation.

      yeah John I would agree that definitely the rule of ‘do unto others as you would have done unto you’ is a central tenet of many philosophies and of course, religion. However, what I see is so key now is that only by answering the question of why we haven’t been able to love one another, which is what has been done here by Jeremy Griffith, that all people can start treating each other with love.

    As I said before from the moment I started to read Freedom it was a plain as the nose on my face.
    All you need to do to overcome the deaf effect is to look at yourself and your thoughts and actions in the world.
    Then take a good look around you. The evidence for what Jeremy is saying is everywhere.

  • Alfie Reddington on February 27, 2020 at 9:39 am

    I’m interested 👌

    I can’t stop reading and re reading the statement by Jeremy Griffith at the very top of this essay, as it sums up perfectly what is on offer here.
    The biggest question ever asked is finally answered right here and now.
    However, this gift requires careful unwrapping and some guided instructions to fully access its life changing potential.
    if you follow the instructions and heed the warnings it will not disappoint.
    it is profoundly self evident and all human behaviour becomes transparent once you access this.
    My only regret is not finding this information 40 years ago at the beginning of my career in psychiatry.

    Japanese industrialist MATSHUSHITA has developed concept for his products’ customers “THINKING FOR OTHERS’. To overcome “deaf effect”, if anyone starts in this manner he/she can come out from “DEAF EFFECT”. Thank you Jeremy Griffith,Tony Gowing & WTM Team.

    Dante‘s inferno offers a way to connect with our falleness. Honest minor attempts have been made in education to connect young teenage minds to our collective shunned darkness. The attempts are few and far between. Without relevant presentation, the showing of it and the opportunity to engaging with it, we will not, cannot see it for what it is therefore not understanding it’s opposite which we crave and deeply need.
    The ‘deafening effect’ I can see to be very real. It takes over at different rates for everyone and the coming away from it does indeed take paramount patience and effort . Happy are those who have fully broken through.

    • Natalie Foltz on May 27, 2020 at 2:59 pm

      I am curious if Jeremy is aware of German New Medicine that lays out the 5 biological laws within our species that Dr. Hamer discovered . Every trauma effects our psyche (soul), brain and organ simultaneously.

      • Susan on May 28, 2020 at 9:52 am

        Thank you very much for your enquiry Natalie and for your interest in our work. Dr Hamer’s work sounds fascinating. As Jeremy says in par. 953 of FREEDOM, the upset caused by the human condition is ‘becoming completely unbearable for humans, the distress it entails must be straining our bodies’ ability to cope to the very limit, which is why diseases like cancer now riddle society’. There is no doubt that every trauma effects our whole being in the way Dr Hamer states especially under the strain of the human condition. Solving the root cause of all our upset—our destructively behaved 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 which you will see presented in Video/Freedom Essay 3. I would also recommend Video/Freedom Essay 4 on other thinkers who have recognised instinct and intellect elements involved in creating the human condition.

    thank you very much…much respect and love from my whanau to your whanau….😊

  • Eric on June 13, 2020 at 7:42 am

    Fascinating. I look forward to watching the remaining videos although, for me, it all comes a little too late as I am now on the cusp of my eighty-seventh year. Nevertheless, I shall watch the series, and thank you for your time and the hard work which you have put into this project.

  • Kalev Charleston on June 28, 2020 at 4:55 am

    Morning as I write this is only after 12 min in video, you about talk depression and that we are the scum of the universe, well as a God fearing man I see it Gen 4:7; that we are told that sin or our scum-ness Does not always have to be so we with our free choice can say no that This is what free choice is, now grant you not everyone can say no,but to that I would say 9 times out of ten it is our upbringing that moulds us, if we grow up in a family who,shall we say come from the wrong side of town, our chances may be slim but not always all so we are created in the image of God, not in looks but in many forms like We are capable of love, compassion, revenge, contentment, with life all this depends on us to chose right not wrong, so to say we are the scum of the universe is going over the top, that in its self would cause people to be depressed We don’t need to help the weak of mind, you are putting everyone in the same basket just like the lunatic left are doing all around the world, we all know that {no one is good no not one} our hearts drive us.
    That is the reason we seek pleasure from dawn to dark,the lust of the flesh, it is our love of self that does that but how can a young person learn if there upbringing does Not at least show Or inform ?
    I am a Karaite Jew that agrees we can be scum but we can be fab as well, so hence choice ! we live and die by our choice’s in my view I realise it is early video one but we will have to agree to disagree so far thank you and regards

    • Lizzy on June 28, 2020 at 11:24 am

      I hope you keep watching Kalev! The most awesome thing on this planet is that this info on the human condition actually defends our ‘upset’, the part of us that is, as the quote from Pascal says above, the scum of the universe. It’s an explanation of why we have both good and evil, and it makes sense of where it came from, and that our upset state is actually really heroic even! I can see how defensive and protective we’ve had to be, proving our self worth, but this is such a mind blowing breakthrough, it really deeply loves us and makes us whole again! Everything is so meaningful! And also this is nothing like the left movements, Jeremy explains those and the danger of them in the next essay and also 14 I think, you’ll never have read anyting like it in your life! It’s all so enlightening!.

  • Markus Klein on July 16, 2020 at 3:56 pm

    Thank you for giving me hope. I feel excited again and having gone through the “curtain of fear” myself, I now see. I am looking forward to the continues process of positive change and I will do whatever I can in my surrounding to part of it.
    Much Love to you all.


  • Ester Akersloot on August 6, 2020 at 5:56 pm

    Thank you for your wisdom in presenting your explanation for the transformation of the human condition. To be released from fear and guilt and to be able to live a joyful life is wonderful. May humanity accept your gift.

  • Ericka on August 8, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    Thank you Jeremy, for your explanation of the Human Condition in your book Freedom.
    I have enjoyed listening to the interview with Richard and was very interested and taken by your view of how humans end up getting so corrupt, selfish and indiferent towards the world, society and relating to the changes around us.
    Every day you hear the news and the negativism, crime reportings and how corrupt people are getting its enough to make you cringe and want to go start new to another planet.
    I believe that a lot of the behavior of human condition has to do, with; what we are seeing in the media and all the details of the groosom crimes that we are being exposed to that are committed by criminals, its being condition in the minds of people to think that if they do it, others can do it too. That is how our society thinks now a days. Which is pretty sad. Thanks again for sharing your book and videos. I am very interested in hearing more about this. I will definitely share it with family members who are psychologists and those who are in the medical field.

  • CollJoy on August 20, 2020 at 10:49 am

    After decades working in the field of human behaviour, I had my thick lab coat of scepticism buttoned up tight when I first discovered this information.
    At first it seemed odd that this video was number 1 in this amazing series, but as is patiently and persistently articulated by the author, you can understand that your mind has a block to this information at a sub-conscious/fear based level and will try and resist it.
    It helped to “lean in” and quieten my sceptic voice to hear and understand what is being explained.
    As with someone trying to see a magic eye puzzle or facing a phobia, the resistance is real and at times frustrating. If you can be patient and persevere with this understanding, it will honestly be the most amazing relief and feeling of hope for the future you can imagine.

  • Maria Rita on August 28, 2020 at 3:54 am

    Thank you for the gifth!!
    Gostava de um dia poder dar o meu ponto de vista,do que o significa human condicion para mim.
    Human condicion como é possível conviver com o medo ,a ganância a inveja e continuar a sorrir.

  • Kaye A Peters on September 5, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    The WTM is new to me, and I spent the past three days listening to all of the videos presented by Jeremy Griffith and his supporters. I initially found the information presented difficult to absorb; however, it became easier to understand in time. I have a spiritual practice which honors my inextricable connection to, and the unconditional love and support of God, Source Energy, Universe, Creator…whatever Power Greater than Myself. I strive to be authentic and continuously remind myself that my Essence is Innocence and Love. It is not easy to bring oneself to total self-acceptance with relief from guilt and shame and loathe of self. I have my own personal issues to deal with, and the repetitive presentation has slowly seeped into my conscious awareness to the point that I believe I’m able to see a new piece to my kaleidoscopic view of life. I am an optimist, realist and dreamer all rolled up into one. I am a Faithful person. I have already been on my own journey of transformation and Jeremy Griffith’s explanations are supportive and encouraging and resonate with me. I look forward to more information and I have subscribed to his website. Nothing can be more freeing than to step into the freedom of the light which expands how I view myself and others. To finally realize the literally simple aspect of cooperative and loving and selfless living…this is a huge scope of understanding and I’m wrapping my mind around this right now. Namaste’

  • Len Amato on March 29, 2021 at 4:31 pm

    J. Krishnamurti, for the last forty plus years of my life, has been, and continues to be, the most remarkable teacher on the human condition. For example, psychological thought and psychological time has been and continues to be the quintessential cause of the individual and collective suffering of humankind. Socrates “know thyself” explained in simple language, the key, albeit Rosetta Stone, for me personally, to understanding the human condition. Are you familiar with the late Mr. Krishnsmurti’s work? Your comments will be tremendously appreciated. Thank you, Len Amato, New York City.

    • WTM Admin on March 30, 2021 at 11:49 am

      Humanity has long held a hope and vision of the arrival of a liberated, upset-free, integrated, peaceful world. While the New Age Movement, and the many other pseudo-idealistic movements with all their gurus, deluded themselves that the idealistic, peaceful world could be achieved through people artificially restraining, sublimating and even transcending their upset, corrupted condition, the truth is that state could only be achieved through confronting and solving the human condition. Humans have to be able to understand their way to freedom, and it is that all-clarifying, redeeming and rehabilitating understanding that Jeremy provides. You can read more in FAQ 6.5.
