This is explanatory WTM Email 43


How understanding the human condition
can immediately transform your and
every other humans’ life and save the world


(This email is largely a re-presentation of WTM Email 31 and also of Email 7 because it presents the all-important explanation of how understanding the human condition transforms humans and saves the world from imminent destruction.)


The finding of the biological explanation of the human condition makes possible the immediate transformation of your and every other human’s life from a human-condition-afflicted state to a human-condition-free life of unimaginable happiness and excitement.

As this fully accountable, psychosis-addressing-and-solving, real biological explanation of the human condition (that was presented in WTM Email 5) reveals, when we humans became fully conscious some two million years ago a battle for the management of our lives unavoidably broke out between our already established gene-based, naturally-selected instinctive orientations and our newly emerged nerve-based, understanding-dependent, self-adjusting, fully conscious mind. Unable to explain and understand why we had to challenge our instincts, we became psychologically retaliatory, defensive and insecure upset sufferers of the angry, egocentric and alienated human condition. But having now finally found the explanation for why we had to challenge our instincts, all the retaliatory, defensive and insecure upset anger, egocentricity and alienation can subside and heal. Understanding relieves and replaces the need to be retaliatory, defensive and insecure. As the great psychoanalyst Carl Jung was forever saying, ‘wholeness for humans depends on the ability to own our own shadow’ our ‘shadow’ being the dark angry, egocentric and alienated aspects of our lives that we can now ameliorate with understanding. Humans can finally be rehabilitated from a psychologically upset existence to secure ‘wholeness’, health and happiness.

Professor Harry Prosen, former President of the Canadian Psychiatric Association, summarised the healing powers of this human-race-saving understanding of the human condition when he said: ‘I have no doubt this biological explanation of the human condition is the holy grail of insight we have sought for the psychological rehabilitation of the human race.’

It is important to note that this healing of our species’ upset psychosis and the complete return to ‘wholeness’, health and happiness for the human race will, however, take a number of generations. This is because psychological healing usually takes years for all the insecurities, confusions and misunderstandings and their effects to be replaced and repaired with understanding, so it follows that in the case of the largest psychosis of all of the human condition, that healing process will be a generational process.


HOWEVER, while our species’ psychological rehabilitation will take a number of generations, what is of immense importance and is so spectacularly wonderful is that every human can immediately know that he or she is fundamentally good and not bad, and that this knowledge puts each of us in a very powerful position because it means we can legitimately decide not to live in accordance with the upset within us.


In the Adam Stork analogy this is the transition from the tortured angry, egocentric, alienated state to the human condition-free state. See WTM Email 5, which links to the Introductory Video 3 on the homepage for the explanation of the human condition, including the Adam Stork analogy.

The logic behind making this decision is irrefutable: now that the great goal of the whole human journey of conscious thought and enquiry is achieved and we have found understanding of our conflicted and distressed human condition, all the old retaliatory, defensive and insecure behaviours of anger, egocentricity and alienation that we had to employ to cope while we couldn’t defend ourselves with understanding are no longer needed. They are obsoleted, brought to an end. In fact, with this knowledge of the human condition now found, it would be an act of total irresponsibility, indeed madness, to continue down that old, insecure, defensive and destructive road. The truth is, there is nothing in the way now of every human taking up a magnificent, unburdened, human-condition-free, transformed life!


And, gloriously, what happens when we give up our old competitive, aggressive and selfish ways of coping with the human condition and take up the new way of living that understanding of the human condition has made possible, is we transition to a cooperative, loving and selflessly behaved person, a truly integrative part of humanity. Even though we are not yet free of the psychologically upset state of our own personal human condition, we can immediately have a change of attitude and decide not to live out that upset state that remains within us. The overall effect in our lives is that, despite our retention of the upset state of the human condition, we are effectively free from its hold and its influence, which is an absolutely fabulous transformation to have made in an instant in one simple decision!


You and every other human can, as it were, put the issue of all your upsets/corruptions in a ‘suitcase’, attach a label to it saying ‘Everything in here is now explained and defended’, and simply leave that suitcase behind at the entrance to what we in the World Transformation Movement (WTM) call the Sunshine Highway and set out unencumbered by all those upset behaviours into a new world that is effectively free of the human condition.



It is important to emphasise here that while the Transformed Way of Living is similar to a religion in that it involves completely letting go of, or transcending, our real, upset self and deferring to another way of living, in every other respect it is very different. The fundamental difference is that unlike religions, which are based on faith or dogma, the understanding of the human condition, and the Transformed Way of Living it brings about, is based on rational, first-principle-based biology; it is knowledge-driven knowledge that, after a few generations, has the ability to eliminate all the upset in humans.

to increasingly dishonest and deluded and dangerous forms of pseudo idealism


And so religion, and, for that matter, any other pseudo idealistic way of countering the upset in our lives that we humans have developed, like socialism or New Ageism or feminism or environmentalism or multiculturalism or anti-capitalism or political correctism or post-modernism, were all only ways of containing and restraining upset behaviour while the upsetting search for knowledge, ultimately for self-knowledge, understanding of our human condition, continued as it had to. But now that the upsetting search for understanding of the human condition is completed, this transformed cooperative loving and selfless way of living actually brings a complete end to upset behaviour. It stops it in its tracks because there is no longer any justification for that upset behaviour to continue. Quite suddenly the whole human race becomes cooperative, loving and selfless, because there is no reason not to. All forms of competition, such as competitive sports, no longer take place. Trying to make more money so we can smother ourselves with material reinforcement no longer happens. Excessive preoccupation with how we look and dress ends. Essentially, focus on self stops and focus on the welfare of others and the world starts. We change from living selfishly to living selflessly.

The situation now that the human condition is solved and upset behaviour no longer has to occur is that practising upset behaviour and our old artificial ways of reinforcing our sense of worth unnecessarily only upsets and distresses us more; it merely feeds the now obsoleted monster of our insecure condition.


Basically, preoccupation with achieving power, fame, fortune and glory in order to artificially bring us relief from the insecurity of our condition is obsoleted because we now have the real relief for that insecurity of first-principle-based biological explanation of our species’ fundamental goodness. Artificial ways of reinforcing ourselves are finally able to be replaced by the real reinforcement of the understanding of ourselves.


How quickly and completely this transformation is made obviously depends on the individual’s and the community’s degree of upset and insecurity (WTM Email 37 explained how differences in levels of upset and insecurity can now be admitted, and are due to how long an individual or a community, or a race, etc, had been subjected to life under the duress of the human condition). The more upset and insecure the individual or the community, the faster and more complete the transition needs to be. For the less upset and insecure, the slower and thus less disruptive the transition can afford to be, but even for those who can afford to make a slower transition, they will realise that the transformation is unavoidable and should urgently be made.


It is this particular undeniable consequence of the arrival of understanding of the human condition of the transformation of our lives from living selfishly and competitively to living selflessly and cooperatively that is going to eventually catch on as being the right response now for everyone and when it does it will spread like wildfire across our planet, and save the world. And it is not a revolution that involves warfare and bloodshed like so many revolutions in the past, but a peaceful revolution that is driven by irrefutable knowledge/​understanding. We humans are conscious beings and what consciousness needs is understanding, and now we have it. Ultimately, we humans respond to knowledge anything less was bound to be ineffective. This is the real and lasting transformation that the human race has lived in hope, faith and trust would one day occur. It is the revolution of our minds.



Initially many people will think that life without the artificial reinforcement and relief for our now highly insecure and embattled lives from achieving success in competitions and acquiring material luxuries will be unbearable and unworkable. Initially, many will say, ‘It’s all very well to argue that our goodness and worth has been established at the fundamental level through understanding, but, as you have pointed out, that understanding will take generations to fully absorb and end all the insecurities within us, so aren’t we going to need the old artificial reinforcements we derived from achieving the likes of power, fame, fortune and glory while we are going through the absorption process? For example, when communism deprived people of the chance of achieving reinforcement from material fortune and glory, the people’s motivation for living was taken away and their societies foundered, so won’t trying to live without all our old artificial means of reinforcement similarly make our lives unbearable and dysfunctional? Even if, as you mentioned, we are able to slow the transition up somewhat to living without artificial reinforcement, isn’t any effort to live without it while we are still variously upset and insecure going to fail?’ Basically, as is explained in paragraphs 1208-1210 of FREEDOM, people will initially procrastinate about moving to the new ‘Transformed Way of Living’.



What is missing from this kind of thinking is an appreciation of how awesomely wonderful it is to be free of the responsibility and burden of having to continue with the corrupting search for understanding of the human condition. It is true that when people experienced a religious conversion from living out their upset and instead deferred to a faith, or when people wholeheartedly joined a communist commune, or even a hippy commune, they did, to a degree, experience what it is like to be free of having to live in a mean and brutal competitive and selfish world where everyone is living out their insecure, upset, human-condition-afflicted angry, egocentric and alienated inclinations, but, as we can now clearly understand, those were situations where humanity’s great battle to find the redeeming understanding of the human condition still had to be won. This means that what these people were adopting and advocating were only pretences at living free of the burden of the human condition. They were, as was explained in WTM Email 29, in effect, false starts to a human-condition-free world. In fact, what they were doing was so unreal it has seriously discredited what living free of the human condition is actually like. The transformation to a life that is actually free of the battle to find understanding of the human condition that is now available is a state of such relief, happiness and excitement it is almost more than the human body can endure. When we are ALL working together at last to care for each other and the world in a fully justified, no-irresponsibility-involved, all-other-ways-of-living-are-now-illegitimate, the-old-competitive-and-selfish-world-is-finished-with, the unshackled fellowship, happiness and excitement will be so good it will sustain everyone ten times over! Leaving the old human-condition-embattled world that the human race has had to live in is like breaking out of jail; better than that, it’s like being able to leave a cesspit of poisonous spew and excrement, because that in truth was how compromised, empty, deficient, soul-destroyed and horrible our human-condition-embattled lives have been. That old world really has nothing to offer now that the gates to the fabulous new human-condition-resolved, transformed world have been flung open. Watch Jimmy McPhedran, or any of the other WTM members describing their transformation, and you’ll see something of what is on offer now.



As Jeremy Griffith has written in paragraph 1166 of FREEDOM, “the excitement and relief of being effectively free of the human condition the joy and happiness of being liberated from the burden of our insecurities and self-preoccupations; the awesome meaning and power of finally being aligned with the truth and participating in the magic true world; the wonderful empathy and equality of goodness and fellowship that understanding of the human condition now allows us to feel for our fellow humans; the freedom now to effectively focus on repairing the world; and, above all, the radiant aliveness from the optimism that comes with knowing our species’ march through hell has finally ended and that a human-condition-free new world is coming CAN NOW TRANSFORM EVERY HUMAN AND THUS THE WORLD.”


The World Transformation Movement could be described as the most idealistic movement that has ever been, but that is because the human condition has been solved and it therefore now can and should be that idealistic and optimistic about our species’ future. We humans have won our freedom from the human condition. The way we have been living is finished with, it’s over. There is no longer any justification for it. A new way of living and world has been born and, given how psychologically exhausted we humans now are, and how much devastation we have caused, its arrival comes only just in time!

Please note, we encourage constructive discussion about this information and so reserve the right to moderate or decline posts that we feel are not relevant or inappropriate. In particular, with the subject of the human condition being so confronting, malice can easily occur, and where comments are deemed to be motivated not by objectivity but by malice, they will be declined. It has to be appreciated that the possibility of malice toward this subject matter is very real, and we have a responsibility to manage that as best we can.

    The understanding of these truths is as great relief. I have been aware of my missing a great deal in life and felt apart from the competitive self serving’s of modern U S society. I am grateful to have discovered the WTM and the freedom to be my whole real self I have gained. I understand it will take some time and further study and practice to break the chains that have bound my life for 74 years. I am happy and excited to have this new viewpoint. I now realize how my natural attraction to anarchist philosophy was driven by natural instinct.
    Thank You, Jimmy Mac

    An incredibly powerful discussion of how this understanding works. Anyone new to these ideas should take the time to read and reread this to absorb it’s profundity. I sit here gobsmacked!! God I only hope humanity wakes from it’s stupor to see what’s on it’s doorstep wrapped in gold.. Our dormant integrative potential will explode like fireworks when we do.

  3. Jack Carney on July 12, 2017 at 8:38 pm

    Is Jeremy a voluntaryist-anarchist? That is, a person who believes in self-ownership, self-rule and the non-aggression principle; and who therefore believes any and all governments past and present are unnecessary evils and immoral because they justify and use offensive force to serve their ends?

    • nomad on July 13, 2017 at 12:14 pm

      The fundamental point about Jeremy and his work is that he is a biologist, and that he has presented the fully rational, accountable, from-first-principles, scientific explanation of the riddle of the human condition, which is why humans have been so selfish and aggressive when the ideals are to the be the opposite. And the explanation of the human condition makes all that selfish and aggressive behaviour redundant. It takes some time to bottom out on the profundity of that, but it is important, because questions about whether Jeremy believes in this or that, or wants to stop this or that fail to take into account that he has got to the bottom of the whole human situation. And when you start to get your head around that, you start to realise that all the problems on the planet, whether they are tyrants or dictators, or governments that don’t represent the people properly, or take people’s power from them, are just symptoms of that underlying issue of the human condition. Even politics itself (see chapter 3:9 of FREEDOM) is just a manifestation of the human condition. And the wonderful thing is, if you solve that core issue, which is what Jeremy has done, then you solve all the other issues which stem from it – all the unnecessary evils and immorality by everyone, including governments – which have been plaguing our planet. So I strongly recommend reading chapter 1 of FREEDOM, or Video 3 of the Introductory Video Series at the top of the homepage because this is where the explanation of the human condition is presented, and then it is possible to see that everything is just a symptom of that underlying, core issue.

    The logic of how this information transforms our lives is so irrefutable I agree. It’s such a natural progression in understanding the human condition and the fact that our immense 2 million year old battle to find that knowledge is over. To finally know our own goodness, to “own our own shadow”, is such an incredible relief — a “mind revolution alright! It’s only sensible that we leave our old pre-understanding ways behind and move on to another way of living based on that amazing self-knowledge. And it is so simple as Jane says below. What a phenomenal time in history, the gates of freedom are open for the whole human race!

  5. Jane on June 27, 2017 at 7:41 am

    The simplicity of how we can transform our lives and our world blows my mind and is so inspiring, especially as a mother as it gives me such hope for the future. Thank you Jeremy Griffith and the WTM.

    This email for me is the most precious articulation ever written by a human being.
