Debunking the ‘savage instincts’ excuse
for human behaviour

 

Humans are aggressive and ruthlessly competitive because, like all other species, we run on animalistic instincts that make us compete at every turn right? Actually, no. Think about it: terms used to describe human behaviour, like egocentric, arrogant, inspired, depressed, deluded, pessimistic, optimistic, hateful, immoral, brilliant, guilt-ridden, evil, psychotic or neurotic, all recognise the involvement of our species’ fully conscious thinking mind. They demonstrate that there is a psychological dimension to our behaviour; that we don’t suffer from a genetic-opportunism-driven ‘animal condition’, but the psychologically troubled HUMAN CONDITION.

 

In this very short video, WTM member Tony Gowing uses Jeremy Griffith’s explanation of the human condition (which is presented in WTM Email 5) to explain that humans’ selfish behaviour is NOT a product of savage animal instincts within us, but the result of a psychosis that can be healed through understanding a revelation that has the power to transform the human race.

 

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

The Transcript of this video

 

With regard to the issue of human nature, I know everyone uses the excuse that our competitive and aggressive behaviour is due to us having savage animal instincts, which are driven by the need to reproduce our genes, but surely this is just a convenient excuse while we searched for the real reason for our divisive nature. After all, words used to describe human behaviour such as egocentric, arrogant, inspired, depressed, deluded, pessimistic, optimistic, hateful, immoral, brilliant, guilt-ridden, evil, psychotic or neurotic, all recognise the involvement of OUR species’ fully conscious thinking mind. They demonstrate that there is a psychological dimension to our behaviour; that we don’t suffer from a genetic-opportunism-driven ‘animal condition’, but the psychologically troubled HUMAN CONDITION.

 

Also, we humans have cooperative and loving moral instincts, the voice or expression of which we call our conscience. As Charles Darwin said, ‘The moral sense perhaps affords the best and highest distinction between man and the lower animals’ (The Descent of Man, 1871, ch.4).

 

So saying our behaviour results from having competitive and aggressive instincts like other animals is simply not true; as I say, it’s just a convenient excuse while we waited for the psychosis-acknowledging-and-solving, real explanation of our divisive nature.

 

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

 

In fact, as I mentioned in my previous presentation, the explanation in FREEDOM reveals that human nature is a product of an underlying insecurity about whether we humans are fundamentally good or not and because the explanation is SO redeeming, it brings a complete and permanent end to our insecurity-driven destructive behaviour, completely transforming all humans into secure and happy beings.

 

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

 

So I really urge you to watch the next short video in which Jeremy Griffith goes ‘up river’ and presents the psychosis-addressing-and-solving, REAL explanation of the human condition.
