  • Questionnaire

    We would value your feedback to Videos 1-4, and to Video 14 as it is the other very important video to watch. Completing this Questionnaire may also help you assess how much you have overcome the ‘deaf effect’. All feedback is confidential.

      YesNo
    • Disagree
      with it
    • Still thinking
      about it
    • Think it
      is true
  • Video 1 explains:

  • 1.1 that humans have lived in great fear of the issue of the human condition

  • 1.2 that this fear makes absorption of discussion of the human condition difficult

  • 1.3 that you therefore have to patiently re-listen to the presentations to overcome this ‘deaf effect’

    • I understand
      what’s said
      YesNo
    • Disagree
      with it
    • Still thinking
      about it
    • Think it
      is true
  • Video 2 explains:

  • 2.1 that the ‘savage instincts’ excuse has been used to explain our competitive and aggressive condition

  • 2.2 that we suffer from a conscious-mind-based psychologically troubled human condition

  • 2.3 that this ‘savage instincts’ excuse is wrong because we have cooperative and loving moral instincts

  • 2.4 that the false ‘savage instincts’ excuse has been used to justify the imposition of left-wing ‘correct’ behaviour

  • 2.5 that this imposition is both wrong and dangerous

    • I understand
      what’s said
      YesNo
    • Disagree
      with it
    • Still thinking
      about it
    • Think it
      is true
  • Video 3 explains:

  • 3.1 that rather than being due to ‘savage instincts’ our psychologically troubled human condition is due to a clash between our orientating instincts and our conscious mind’s need to understand cause and effect

  • 3.2 that this explanation ends the historic burden of guilt and criticism of humans and reveals that we are the heroes of the story of life on Earth

  • 3.3 that the explanation establishes that all humans are equally good

  • 3.4 that this understanding obsoletes our old artificial power, fame, fortune and glory ways of validating ourselves and by so doing transforms the human race

  • 3.5 that Moses’s allegory of Adam and Eve corroborates that we humans did once live in an innocent state and then became corrupted when we became conscious

    • I understand
      what’s said
      YesNo
    • Disagree
      with it
    • Still thinking
      about it
    • Think it
      is true
  • Video 4 explains:

  • 4.1 that we have suffered from the ‘double whammy’ of psychological upset because we have cooperative and loving moral instincts

  • 4.2 that there is, as Richard Heinberg’s book documents, ‘everywhere in religion and myth…an acknowledgement that human consciousness has been separated…from an original innocence and can return to it only through the resolution of some profound inner discord’

  • 4.3 that, as Hesiod described, we once were ‘A golden race…with calm untroubled mind’ who ‘shared’ everything and were ‘strangers to ill’

  • 4.4 that, as Plato similarly said, we once lived in a ‘state of innocence, before we had any experience of evils to come’ when ‘neither was there any violence, or devouring of one another, or war or quarrel’ and then humans became conscious and ‘had to order their course of life for themselves, and were their own masters’, which caused ‘the separation, when the world was let go’ leading to the ‘universal ruin’ that has arrived today

  • 4.5 that the unjust condemnation by our instincts caused all the volcanic frustration and anger in us humans, and our need for material reinforcement

  • 4.6 that this unjust condemnation necessitated we used the false ‘savage instincts’ excuse until science arrived to explain the real reason for our fallen condition

  • 4.7 that bonobos evidence the nurturing that created our cooperative and loving moral instincts

  • 4.8 that contemporary thinkers like Eugène Marais, Laurens van der Post, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Nikolai Berdyaev, Erich Neumann, Paul MacLean and Arthur Koestler also evidence that the instinct vs intellect explanation of the human condition is the true explanation of it

  • 4.9 that with this true explanation of our condition we can now, as T.S. Eliot said, ‘cease from exploration’ and return to the upset-free state ‘where we started and know [understand] the place for the first time’

    • I understand
      what’s said
      YesNo
    • Disagree
      with it
    • Still thinking
      about it
    • Think it
      is true
  • Video 14 explains:

  • 14.1 that scientists, like everyone else, have been living in fearful denial of the human condition and, as a result, have (Darwin excepted) been putting forward all manner of dishonest ‘explanations’ for human behaviour

  • 14.2 that all these dishonest ‘explanations’ are based on the seductive reverse-of-the-truth lie that we have savage instincts and a guilt-free conscious mind that has to manage them. It is us humans now who are extremely upset savage monsters, not our ape ancestors

  • 14.3 that Social Darwinism led to E.O. Wilson’s theory of Evolutionary Psychology, and then to his Multilevel Selection theory which instead of explaining the human condition nullified it, effectively burying humanity forever in the darkest depths of Plato’s cave of denial!

  • 14.4 that the most dangerous use of the false ‘savage instincts’ excuse is the left-wing’s use of it to justify its dogmatic imposition of ‘correct’ cooperative and loving behaviour — dangerous because it stopped the all-important search for knowledge. As Nietzsche said, we had to ‘keep holy’ our ‘highest hope’ of achieving ‘enlightenment’ of our condition

  • 14.5 that, as Dennis Prager ‘warned’, ‘the left…use [dishonest, ‘savage instincts’] science…to coerce its citizens’, ‘dictate what is to be tolerated and what is to be mocked’ by accusing them of being ‘sexist, intolerant, xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist and bigoted’

  • 14.6 that only this true explanation of the human condition can stop this march-of-Marxism to an unthinkably horrific psychotic death-by-dogma end of the human race, and bring about a real transformation of humans

  • Have you re-watched these videos?

  • Finally, if you do think that the now desperately needed, most ‘elusive and precious in the life of the mind…understanding of the human condition’, that E.O. Wilson spoke of, has indeed been presented here, and that our species’ historic resistance to engaging with the subject means there will be a great ‘deaf effect’ resistance to it, will you help us defend and promote this absolutely critical human-race-saving understanding?
