This month in WTM Austria news we have a new wonderful commendation video from Gerald to share. As Gerald says in his video regarding his personal experience with this world saving and transforming understanding "The calmness, relief and happiness these understandings brought to my life, I can’t put into words. It is beyond every description. But I can tell you, that it not only restored my hopes and drive, it gave my life real meaning for the first time." We all just love Gerald’s beautifully honest personal account of what this understanding has done for his life.

We are so excited to be able to share some new German content with you. Over the past couple of months, we have been working on the German translation of the transcript of THE Interview of Jeremy Griffith by Craig Conway that solves the human condition and saves the world. Not only can you now read the German transcript of the interview which provides the ideal, very short, introductory summary of the contents of FREEDOM, but we have also created a German audio VoiceOver for the Video of the Interview which you can watch on our homepage or by clicking on the video below.
As Gerald says in his goodreads review of THE Interview, "THE Interview is the perfect introduction to Jeremy Griffiths explanation of our human condition. It comes right to the point and explains human behavior at it’s core. The questions asked by host Craig Conway are on point because I am sure most people would have similar questions while reading it. And Jeremy Griffith addresses all of them in a very logical and rational way. Using an analogy of a Stork to explain how the conflict within us humans arose is just a brilliant way to help people understand what happened to us humans. (Spoiler alert: the analogie has quite some parallels to the biblical story of Adam and Eve but with a very different outcome) Jeremy Griffith establishes with the help of science the fundamental goodness of all humans within a few pages and by doing so laying the foundation for a better world. A world without suffering is not a unrealistic dream anymore, this understanding provided by Jeremy Griffith will lead the whole of humanity into a bright future. So this is definitely the most fascinating interview I’ve ever seen. I would recommend everyone to read this little booklet as soon as possible."

The main focus of the WTM Austria is to help disseminate this world-transforming and saving information about our human condition in whatever way we can. This month WTM Austria member Michael Bärnthaler (Michi) found a creative way to do just that. As part of his studies at the Higher Technical Education Institute Michi was required to hold a presentation on a topic of his choice. He chose to use this opportunity to speak about Jeremy Griffith’s explanation of our human condition and the World Transformation Movement. What a precious initiative on the part of Michi in helping push this critically important project forward. As Jeremy says in paragraph 1191 of FREEDOM regarding the importance of disseminating these understandings to the world "Yes, all that matters now is that the truth is kept alive and that it is disseminated to the world’s population, because it alone can heal the human race and save the world." We couldn’t agree more and feel so privileged to be able to help with this most meaningful of tasks.

In August 2019, Sophie and Gerald had the wonderful opportunity to meet-up with WTM Toronto Centre founder, Karen Riley, in Toronto during a trip to Canada to visit Sophie’s family.Karen is a clinical assistant professor in the US and a practicing clinical pharmacist in Canada with over 36 years’ experience in hospital, community and consulting pharmacy practice. In 2017, Karen read a review from world-renowned fellow Canadian, Professor Harry Prosen, praising a book so highly as ‘the greatest book of all time’. That book turned out to be FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition by Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith. After reading this incredible book she too came to the conclusion that its profound biological understanding of our species really does resolve our psychologically troubled human condition. This exhilarating, redeeming, empowering and transforming work in FREEDOM inspired her to open the WTM Toronto Center to share these astonishing insights which she believes can save the world.
Sophie, Gerald and Karen met up at Canada’s most beloved Coffee Shop, Tim Hortons. They had wonderful enlightening discussions about the information provided in FREEDOM and it’s implications.
All three said that while this was only their first time meeting in person it felt as though they have known each other for a lifetime. Check out the happiness on all three of their smiling faces in the picture.

Watch Stefan’s wonderful Amazon Video Review of Jeremy Griffith’s book Transform Your Life And Save The World (TYL) below.
As Stefan writes in the written portion of his TYL Amazon review 'I love this book because it is exactly what it says it is. Like everything of Jeremy Griffith's writings Transform Your Life (TYL) is full of truth about our human nature and if you read it with an open mind, this book alone can liberate you from the underlying insecurity about your self-worth and in turn transform your life, which is exactly what it says it will do... I can only tell you that Jeremy Griffith's explanation does really stack up and TYL is the perfect way to get you started to living in support of the biological truth about our human condition, which will not only transform your life but actually save the world.'
Transform Your Life And Save the World is a condensation of Jeremy’s definitive presentation of the biological explanation of the human condition, FREEDOM. Like all of Jeremy’s works you can download a free copy of TYL at www.humancondition.com. While the book is currently only available in English keep an eye on our page for any news concerning German translations.
This month WTM Austria Members Stefan, Gerald S. & Sophie flew out to Sydney for a couple of weeks where they would spend time working on putting together the final touches on the German Translations of FREEDOM ESSAY 1-10 & 14 with the help of the wonderful WTM Sydney Team. While the focus prior to the trip was to make German translations of the essays available in written form online in the hopes of making this breakthrough and world transforming information more accessible for German speaking people, an interesting idea arose at the very start of the trip through discussions with the WTM Sydney team, namely, to record German voiceovers for the Videos which accompany the essays. All three had a wonderful time recording the voiceovers in the WTM Studio with the much-appreciated help of WTM Director James Press. While much time was dedicated during the trip to working on the translations the best part of the trip was the insight gained through spending time with different members of the WTM Sydney team and learning from their wealth of experience with Jeremy Griffith’s psychosis- addressing-and-resolving real explanation of the human condition. They were left truly inspired by the amazing work and dedication of the Sydney team for this most important of all projects in disseminating this dreamed-of- world saving understanding to the world. Another incredibly special highlight of the trip was to be able to sit front and center at Jeremy’s masterpiece presentation where he spent time explaining the falseness of the ‘savage instincts’ excuse for human behaviour, described humanity’s true innocent loving heritage, and explained how the true understanding of the human condition now makes possible the real therapy and rehabilitation of the human race. See below for the video of Jeremy Griffith’s Masterpiece Presentation recorded during Stefan, Gerald and Sophie’s visit to the WTM Sydney Center. We are certain you will be just as inspired as we were!
We were so happy to welcome two very special visitors to the WTM Austria Center at the end of November, WTM founding member Anthony Cummins from Sydney and WTM Sweden founder Olof Österman. We had a lovely weekend roaming around the many different Christmas markets here in Graz, drinking a couple of cups of Glühwein and enjoying discussions about the human condition, adjusting to the truth and its implications and of course our shared excitement and relief of having found these understandings. As Jeremy writes in FREEDOM Essay 15 '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!' The weekend reminded us all once again just how important and special the fellowship of this WTM community is and we are sure that the fellowship, happiness and excitement felt over the weekend will sustain us for a long time to come.
This month WTM-Austria co-founder Stefan Rössler & WTM Sweden founder Olof Österman flew out to visit the Sydney WTM Center together. Also, in Sydney visiting at the same time was the founder of the first US Center Gerry St. Onge. As you can see from the big smiles in the photo above it was a wonderful time and while they enjoyed a little bit of sight-seeing, they also spent time growing their understanding and as a result their appreciation for these world-saving understandings. One of the highlights of the trip was Jeremy Griffith’s presentation on the 'grand summary of our project' where he walked attendees through his Introductory Videos 1-4 & 14, which are KEY to understanding this all-important, world-saving-and-transforming explanation of the human condition. The presentation was amazing and very insightful. One portion of the presentation that really stuck with us and which we found incredibly impactful and drew much inspiration from was Jeremy’s drawing and description of 'The fork in the road for each person, and for the entire race'. As Jeremy explains 'Now that we’ve found understanding—the biological defense for ourselves—the old artificial forms of reinforcements of power, fame, fortune and glory are now obsoleted by the actual reinforcement of ourselves of the understanding that we are good. It would be irresponsible to continue down that old road.' To watch the video of the full presentation or read the transcript in English see Freedom Essay 61.
While sometimes difficult to describe in words the excitement, relief and freedom felt from being effectively free of the human condition, this joyful Rising smiling sun painting by WTM Austria member Christof Habenbacher is a beautiful depiction thereof.
We all just love Chris’s paintings and this one in particular is a beautiful depiction of what is on offer now that the arrival of the dreamed of liberating knowledge about our troubled human condition has been found.
As Jeremy explains in FREEDOM Chapter 9:4: The Transformed Lifeforce Way of Living with the understanding of our corrupted/upset human condition found we are now all in a position where we can '...put the issue of all our 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 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. All our egocentric, embattled posturing to get a win out of life, all our strategising every minute of every day to try to find a way to compensate for feeling inadequate or imperfect or bad about ourselves, can suddenly end. We can leave Plato’s dark cave where we have been hiding to escape the glare of the truth about our seemingly imperfect condition. Excitement and meaning—based on liberating, truthful, honest understanding of ourselves and our world—is what we have to sustain ourselves now.'

This month Gerald had the wonderful opportunity to take part in a very exciting transformation talk hosted by Jeremy Griffith via Skype. Also attending the talk were three members of the Sydney WTM Centre, Tony Gowing, Annie Williams and Genevieve Salter, as well as Roz Bachl who lives in Spain but is going to be starting a WTM Centre in the UK and Sam Akritidis from the Melbourne WTM Centre. The talk centered around the Transformed Way of Living that is made possible now that the psychosis-addressing-and-solving explanation of the human condition has been found. Gerald spoke shortly about his journey and personal transformation and especially enjoyed and got so much out of listening to Jeremy explain the mechanisms for becoming transformed. As Jeremy explains during the talk 'So we study this understanding of the human condition sufficiently to verify that it’s true, and then we just live in support of it, and it looks after us and the world—because we’ve got the full truth there and that means the old artificial ways of reinforcing ourselves, of power, fame, fortune and glory are obsoleted. So there’s no longer any need for them. We can now legitimately leave that embattled state and just go and live in this free state. It seems like a fraud, a trick, that we can go to this totally free state, which is so easy to do—like the picture I drew for the How to become Transformed talk (below) where we go over the hill and live in this valley free of the human condition—but we can. It’s an absolutely astonishing truth how EASY this transformation is and how wonderful living in that completely free state is.'

We just loved WTM Austria Co-founder, Gerald Staffaneller’s, wonderful Amazon review for FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition so much that we have to share it. What we particularly love about Gerald’s Amazon review is his honest account of how confronting a subject the human condition is and how this makes it difficult to absorb discussion of the issue, something we in the WTM call the ‘deaf effect’.
As Gerald says in his Amazon review for FREEDOM, '…I have to admit that reading Freedom was not easy, especially at the beginning, but things got clearer as I continued to read. Luckily a friend of mine was also reading Freedom, so we started to talk about it more and more. Though it was a confronting process, I kept reading, and doing so changed everything. Indeed, it takes time to apply the information to your own life and your way of thinking. But once you are able to digest it, you start seeing proof that this information is true every day in nearly every situation. I personally love that Freedom brings the gained knowledge of all kinds of different fields together, which enables one to make sense of literally everything, the whole world … I realized why Professor Harry Prosen called it ‘The book that saves the world’. It is not the information itself, which changes the world, no, it is what the information does to you. UNDERSTANDING IS THE KEY. With this understanding everything changes in you. All your anger, all the egocentricity, all-depressive feelings start to vanish. So do materialistic dreams, actually they seem ridiculous … I can only urge every single person to read Freedom as this understanding is really the only way to save the world and prevent us from the direction, we are heading in.'
So yes, while the human condition is a very confronting subject for us humans, Gerald’s experience of overcoming the ‘deaf effect’ and the excitement and relief that swept over him from being able to finally understand himself and the world around him is something that with a little patience and perseverance is on offer for every human now. You can read Gerald’s entire Amazon review of FREEDOM here. To learn more about the ‘deaf effect’ and how to overcome it see Chapter 1:4 of FREEDOM.
This month in WTM Austria News we are going back in time to when our journey with Jeremy Griffith’s world-saving breakthrough biological explanation of the human condition began. In the summer of 2016 WTM Austria co-founder Stefan Rössler did a Google search for the term ’Human Conditioning’, a term he became familiar with and couldn’t stop thinking about after having read Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. It was while searching for ’Human Conditioning’ that he came across Jeremy Griffith’s explanation of our human condition, his book FREEDOMand the World Transformation Movement. While sceptical at first that the explanation would really help him understand the world around him and human behaviour at its core, he began reading FREEDOM and found that everything he read made so much sense, he just had to keep on reading. He loved the book so much that he read all 787 pages in just two short weeks. As Stefan says in his Amazon Review for FREEDOM, ’FREEDOM truly is the book that saves the world. It explains and defends us humans and our destructive behaviour and it will bring eternal peace to earth and inside each and everyone one of us. You just have to read it :)’

We are so thrilled to announce the opening of the WTM Austria Center!! The announcement of the first three WTM Centers to be formed outside of the original Centre in Sydney was made at the inaugural WTM Global Conference held in Sydney. WTM Austria Co-founder Stefan Rössler had the wonderful opportunity of taking part in the momentous conference in person alongside the founder of the newly established WTM Zambia Centre, Franklin Mukakanga, and the founders of the WTM Melbourne Centre, Sam Akritidis & Frank Balamatsias. At the conference Stefan held a short presentation on his motivations for opening a WTM Centre here in Austria. As Stefan says in his Video in regards to finding Jeremy Griffith’s biological explanation of the human condition:
'I couldn’t believe it—I had finally found what I was looking for all of my life. That is, an explanation for why everything in this world is so fucked up. But not just that—it was an explanation that defends us humans, which was so critical to me because I always knew that no one who has ever lived on this planet was really bad. And as it turns out, the reason for our seemingly bad behaviour was a psychological one. We’re not bad, but man, we’re all completely mad and we’re getting crazier and crazier by the minute. But now, with Jeremy’s explanation, we can finally understand why this was—and still is—happening to us. And best of all, we can stop it right now... It’s on now. We can finally be free and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else or do anything other than be a part of this most wonderful thing in the world—the World Transformation Movement.'
