World Transformation Movement New Zealand Centre

The World Transformation Movement New Zealand Centre has been established for those who want to learn about Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith’s breakthrough explanation of the human condition, our species’ capacity for what has been termed ‘good’ and ‘evil’.

The World Transformation Movement (WTM) is a globally supported, not-for-profit organisation that was established in Sydney, Australia, in 1983. It is dedicated to transforming the individual, the human race and thus our world through psychologically relieving, biological understanding of the human condition.

The human condition and the transformation

The human condition arises from the existence of so-called ‘good and evil’ in human behaviour. Why are we the way we are, competitive and aggressive, rather than cooperative and loving? And beneath that, the deeper question of, what is the origin of all this psychological frustration and pain inside of us humans? This agonising predicament, that we have never before been able to explain and thus understand, has been our human condition.

And since this all-important issue — the underlying issue in all human affairs — is biological in nature, its resolution has been the most important task assigned to biologists. As the renowned Harvard biologist E.O. Wilson has said, “There is no grail more elusive or precious in the life of the mind than the key to understanding the human condition.”

Australian biologist and author Jeremy Griffith has dedicated his life to addressing and solving the human condition and it is his breakthrough insights that the World Transformation Movement presents. His understandings provide the psychologically rehabilitating explanation of our ‘good and evil’-afflicted human condition that E.O. Wilson recognised is the holy “grail” of the whole journey of human thought and enquiry.

Understanding and absorbing this redeeming and thus transforming explanation ends all the bewilderment, confusion and uncertainty — all the insecurity — about human behaviour. It unravels the whole mess we humans have been living in and by doing so makes possible the rehabilitation of the human race. Learn more about Jeremy Griffith's breakthrough biological synthesis of the human condition here.

Freedom on Auckland Harbour with Rangitito in background

By Anna

Sitting on a boat always gives you time to think – while traveling past the beautiful Rangitoto Island recently I delved into my favourite chapter of FREEDOM – Chapter 5: The Origin of Humans’ Unconditionally Selfless, Altruistic, Moral Instinctive Self or Soul.

This is my favourite chapter as it answers the most baffling of questions, ‘how did humans develop truly altruistic behaviour?’ with the simple answer of ‘through nurturing’.

As Jeremy Griffith writes in the chapter summary “Our moral instinctive self or soul, the ‘voice’ or expression of which is our conscience, is a truly amazing phenomenon, for it provided the cooperative, unconditionally selfless love that created humanity. But as amazing as our moral soul most certainly is, its very existence is also a cause for wonder because it raises the baffling question of how on earth did humans acquire such an ‘awe’-inspiring, ‘distinct’-from-other-animals moral sense? For biologists especially, the great outstanding mystery has been how could the cold, selfish, competitive, gene-based natural selection process have possibly created such warm, unconditionally selfless, cooperative, loving instincts in us humans?...this chapter contains nothing less than the truth about what it really means to be human.”

I relate to this given my career in the mechanistic and highly reductionist world of molecular science. It’s worth a read if you want to understand where humanity truly came from.

World Transformation Movement (WTM) New Zealand loved hearing John Mulder, from WTM Cape Town, talking at a recent online meeting of international WTM members about what being able to understand the human condition has meant for him. John has tapped into "the profundity of this explanation”, finding it answers all the questions he thought about while growing up, including the question we all think about: “what is it that drives us as human beings?”

The hope for the future that understanding of the human condition now allows was evident throughout the whole discussion, which John summarised perfectly, saying "there are great things to come for the human race”.

Watch John in the short video below.

Pete Sadler and Anna Fitzgerald, co-founders of the WTM New Zealand Centre, caught up with WTM Sydney founding members Εrіc Cοοke, Prue Watson and Damon Isherwood, in Auckland, New Zealand recently.

With the honesty and compassion that understanding the human condition now allows, the conversation was wide ranging and throughly entertaining! As you can imagine, ‘pub’ discussions reach beyond the usual superfical banter when they are underpinned by Jeremy Griffith's biological explanation of the human condition.
