WTM Austria News
In Freedom Essay 44 entitled Art makes the invisible visible Jeremy Griffith describes how great art has provided some needed truth and beauty to counter all the denial the human race has been living in. As he goes on to explain, ‘it allowed the light of some honesty about our corrupted human condition and some access to our species’ lost state of all-sensitive and all-loving innocence to escape from the dark cave in which we have been hiding.’ And while without the defense of our corrupted condition, mere glimpses of beauty were all most of us humans could cope with, now that the explanation of the human condition that at last frees humanity from the soul-destroying torture of the human condition has finally been found, our lives can be transformed into a state of unimaginable happiness, beauty and excitement! Speaking of the beauty in art; we just have to share this beautiful and precious poem written by WTM member Norma Alge in recent months printed on a magnificent picture she has taken of a sunrise over Mexico.
The primal questions
still beat with aliveness
In the caves of “not-knowing”
and tenderly quiet
The Entangled One
in past and future
Where do you come from?
Where are you going to?
Who are you?
The primal questions
Can we possibly perceive them?
in our ocean of invisible lies
Can we possibly grasp them?
as time rushes by
Can we possibly recognize them?
in the mirror of dying beauty
Who dares to ask with honesty,
with eyes wide open,
a heart unbroken, loving and whole?
Who holds the flower, the joyful power
to answer, to answer - always answer,
to endure the lashes
spoken by the heart blind
the heroes and heroines of our time?
One, joined by the many, knows to sing the magical song of truth.
At sunrise, in all clarity
the Soul of the Child
will breathe and laugh again.
Website Update Goes Live
It has been a busy month for the WTM Austria as our website update slowly came to life. We couldn’t be happier with the final outcome and to finally be able to share this with you. As mentioned in our January news entry one of the main goals of the update was to provide visitors of the page with some more details about the WTM Austria and its members. More specifically, we wanted to use this forum as a way to share our personal experiences with the biological explanation of the human condition put forward by Jeremy Griffith and the transforming effects it has had on our lives. We hope you take the time to have a look at our brand new About Us page and have a scroll through our News page to learn more about the WTM Austria and its activities. We look forward to sharing more updates and content including German translations moving forward. We would also love for you to get in touch by filling out the form on our Contact page and share any questions, thoughts or experiences you may have as you explore the different material. Happy Exploring!
Website Under Construction
As we welcomed in the new year, we all couldn’t help but reminisce about all of the exciting WTM developments that have taken place throughout 2020. From the opening of many new WTM Centers worldwide, to the recording of THE Interview That Solves The Human Condition And Saves The World, to the creation of the World Transformation Movement Facebook Community Group which has been growing so fast, there are just so many things to look back on and be excited about. We here at the WTM Austria Center just cannot wait to see what 2021 will bring and all feel so fortunate to be part of this incredible movement and to be able to help disseminate this world-saving information in our part of the world. A tool which assists us enormously in this all-important of tasks is our precious WTM Austria website and therefore we could not think of a better way to start off the year then giving it a little revamp. The goal being to not only make the German content more easily accessible moving forward but also to share a little more about the WTM Austria and our personal journeys with these life-transforming and world-saving understandings and how important these understandings really are.
As Christ said: ‘Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed? Instead, don’t you put it on its stand?’ (Mark 4:21)
We can't wait to share the new updated website with you in the very near future and are excited for another year of ‘put[ting]…the lamp…on its stand’ and helping spread the all-important reconciling truth about our species human condition.
Because of our love of music, time and time again we stumble across fascinating lyrics from songs which have accompanied us throughout our lives but that now, with the world-saving understanding of our human condition at hands, have begun to take on a different meaning for us then they once did. For example, there is the song ‘Hurra’ written by the German punk-rock band Die Ärzte from 1995, which describes how a life free of the human condition could be, demonstrating the huge difference of how the world currently is and what is possible now that the sought after understanding of ourselves has finally been found. If one would ask the Band about the meaning behind the lyrics they would probably answer that the song lyrics reflect on the situation in Germany after reunification in 1990, sarcastically suggesting that things are much better than they were prior to it. But now with the explanation of our human condition finally found, and just in the nick of time after our 2 million years long search for knowledge, we can see that we have finally reached a real ‘turning point’ for humanity where all the ‘suffering’ on the planet can be brought to an end forever. We now have every reason to sing ‘Hip hip hooray! Everything is awesome, everything is wonderful’ together and celebrate the new world in the everlasting sunshine.
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. To watch Gerald’s commendation video with German subtitles, click play on the video below.
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."
For more daily ecstatic responses about THE Interview from all around the world see the slider under the main video player on humancondition.com
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. To learn more about the WTM Austria and our activities see the About Us page or get in Contact with us by filling out the Contact form.
We just love the WTM global meetings that are frequently held to talk about the exciting transformation of the world that understanding the human condition opens up. Not only are they an incredible forum to share in on the excitement, but they have also played an integral role in helping each and every one of us learn to adjust to and live with the implications that this paradigm-shifting understanding brings about. This month at one of the global transformation meetings Stefan shared some quotes and passages that have helped him grasp what the Transformed State is all about. This one in particular we think captures it perfectly:
‘Yes, 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.’
Geri’s TYL Amazon Review
Another wonderful Amazon review for Jeremy Griffith’s book Transform Your Life And Save The World (TYL) this time in German by WTM Austria Member Gerald Zarfl (Geri). As Geri so beautifully writes in his Amazon review, ‘Understanding this information actually means moving from an insecure, ignorant, deaf, soul-destroyed life back to a life full of meaning and excitement. It is now possible to understand ourselves and the world around us. To understand the human condition is freedom in itself, freedom from all guilt, uncertainty and the conflict within us.’
You can read Geri’s complete review on Amazon.de. You can also get a free copy of TYL as well as Jeremy Griffith’s definitive presentation of the biological explanation of the human condition, FREEDOM, on www.humancodition.com. For German translations of some of Jeremy’s writings you can see our explanation page.
This month we got to welcome back WTM founding member Anthony Cummins to Austria for the second time. As you can see from the pictures, we had a great time together in the snowy mountains, sledding down from the Winterleitenhütte & enjoying a typical Austrian ‘Jause’ over great conversation about humanity’s heroic journey to find liberating understanding of our human condition and the transformation that is possible for every human and the world now that it has been found. As so beautifully described in Chapter 9: The Transformation of The Human Race, paragraph 1258 of FREEDOM regarding the transformation now on offer, ‘Yes, the gateway is wide open and sunlight is now streaming into our world. We can all break out of our chrysalis, our human-condition-afflicted straitjacket, where we have been constrained, letting the wings of our great potential unfold in the sunshine of relieving understanding to reveal the fabulously beautiful creatures we really are.’
Learn more about how understanding the human condition can immediately transform your and every other human’s life and save the world in Freedom Essay 15 and to read a denial-free account of our species’ heroic journey from ignorance to enlightenment see chapter 8 of FREEDOM.
We get asked quite often, ‘What is the World Transformation Movement?’. Read the Quora answers to this question from WTM Austria members Gerald Staffaneller, Michael Bärnthaler, Stefan Rössler and Gerald Zarfl:
We are so thrilled to finally be able to share this video of WTM Austria Co-founder, Stefan Rössler, speaking at the TEDxLend event on the ‘Beginner’s Mind’ held at the Kunsthaus in Graz this past February. In his talk entitled ‘How To Solve Problems By Telling Stories’ Stefan dedicates the final part of his talk to telling his favorite story, our human story, namely Jeremy Griffith’s Adam Stork story. Listen to & watch Stefan explain Jeremy Griffith’s world-saving biological explanation by telling the Adam Stork story in the video below.
As Stefan says so beautifully in his talk:
‘Jeremy Griffith truthfully explains and solves the biggest of all problems—the human condition. It is the underlying, core issue in all of human affairs. The one problem no one ever talks about and yet the one thing we needed to address and solve to finally be able to stop all the suffering and conflict on this planet.’
For a German translation of Jeremy Griffith’s Adam Stork story and the all-important, human-race-transforming, world-saving breakthrough explanation of the human condition please see Freedom Essay 3 entitled The Explanation of the human condition.
We were thrilled to welcome WTM founding member Anthony Landahl (Lancey) to our Austrian Center at the beginning of this month. Lancey spent the weekend with us in Graz and we had some wonderful conversations about the transformed new world that opens up for all humans now that understanding of the human condition has been found. It was a lovely weekend and we all felt so thankful for the fellowship and the experiences and learnings that were shared especially in regard to recognizing and living out the implications of this information. As Lancey says in his affirmation video on humancondition.com: ‘it’s about seeing, accepting and then knowing the truth about this understanding in ourselves and the world, breaking our own denial if you like, not being a victim of our defensive reactions to the truth and instead taking up this TRANSFORMED LIFEFORCE STATE. And the way to do that is simple. There is no need to face down or overly confront yourself with this information, no need to hold on to our redundant resigned ways anymore. Just support this dignifying explanation of the human condition and ourselves and live for what is possible now and just leave that resigned, self-centred, preoccupied-with-self-validation state that’s now redundant (because it’s been explained and dignified) behind. Live where the human journey is at. Participate in the truthful world again by living for the future generations when children won’t have to resign.’ We couldn’t agree more!!! And hope to see Anthony again real soon.
This month we have another Amazon review for FREEDOM to share, this time from WTM Austria Member Gerald Zarfl (Geri) posted on Amazon.de in German. Read Geri’s wonderful amazon review of FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition below.
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.

We were so happy to welcome WTM Sweden Center founder Olof Österman to Austria, for the second time. While we have regular meetings with Olof and other members of the WTM International community its always extra special when we get to meet up in person, such as on this occasion. We spent what was a lovely week together taking advantage of the beautiful summer weather here in Austria visiting the Wörthersee, going on walks throughout Graz and hikes in the Obdach area. The best part of the week however being our discussions about the human condition and the transformation that is now possible as well as being able to share our experiences with this world-saving and transforming information. We left the week feeling incredibly inspired by all of the wonderful work being done by the WTM Sweden in our common mission to disseminate this dreamed-of breakthrough understanding to the world and can’t wait until we get to meet in person again.
To learn more about the WTM Sweden Center and all of the amazing work they are doing in providing a forum and community for those in their part of the world wanting to support and learn about these critically important and world-saving understandings please go to the news section on their website.
One of WTM Austria’s main endeavours involves translating Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith’s explanation and treatise in German. Having recognised the importance and transforming effects of having the human condition solved, the WTM Austria team began translating this breakthrough and world-transforming information into their mother tongue, with the objective of assisting other German speakers more easily access these paradigm-shifting understandings. One of the things which was of great importance to us was to try and stick as closely as possible to the original texts as well as to use accredited translations or original writings of quotes used within Jeremy’s work and only translate quotes ourselves when absolutely necessary. I dont think any of us could have predicted the amount of library visits this would take. After some long nights of translating, reviewing, library visits and flipping through books searching for quotes, the first Freedom Essays were finally ready to be published. Though our initial plan was to publish only the written transcripts of Freedom Essays 1 to 10 & 14 a wonderful opportunity presented itself during Stefan, Gerald & Sophie’s visit to Sydney in February of 2019. During their visit they were able to record German audio overlays for the first Videos/Freedom Essays with the production team in Sydney. All German content is freely available for all at www.wtmaustria.com. It is worth visiting the website regularly as German content will be added and expanded continuously.
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.’
Read more about the symbolism of the rising sun in FREEDOM Essay 45 and on how understanding the human condition can immediately transform your and every other human’s life as well as save the world in FREEDOM Essay 15.
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 FREEDOM and 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.’
