The World Transformation Movement is a non-profit organisation that was established in Sydney in 1983 to bring understanding to our psychologically troubled human condition. In particular, the WTM recognises the breakthrough redeeming and reconciling biological explanation of the human condition put forward by Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith in his various publications, especially his 2016 book FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition which was launched at London’s Royal Geographical Society with a keynote address given by Sir Bob Geldof. (A condensation of the explanation appears in Video/Freedom Essay 3.)
With the world in crisis from the psychological effects of the human condition, the most famous living biologist E.O. Wilson’s assertion that “There is no grail more elusive or precious in the life of the mind than the key to understanding the human condition” has never been more true — so the contention of Professor Harry Prosen, a former president of the Canadian Psychiatric Association, that “Jeremy Griffith’s biological explanation of the human condition provides the holy grail of insight we have sought for the psychological rehabilitation of the human race” makes FREEDOM the linchpin breakthrough needed to save the human race!
So the WTM works tirelessly to promote this explanation of the human condition to ensure its now desperately needed psychologically liberating and transforming effects reach every human. Indeed, it is called the World Transformation Movement because the most marvellous effect of having understanding of the human condition is that all our species’ psychologically upset angry, egocentric and alienated behaviour can now, immediately, be put aside, and eventually, over a few generations, completely disappear, thus bringing about the complete rehabilitation and transformation of the human race and thus of our planet. With this understanding, every human can move from a state of profound insecurity about their worth and meaning to a state of secure understanding of themselves.

Professor Prosen has worked in the field of psychiatry for over 50 years and is also psychiatric consultant to the Bonobo Species Preservation Society. You can watch extraordinary footage of Jeremy and Professor Prosen with the bonobos at the Milwaukee County Zoo here.
“I am fascinated and deeply moved by what Jeremy explains about the bonobo chimpanzee being the most extraordinary primate because they provide the precious living example of how our distant ape ancestors came to live in such a loving and sensitive instinctive state. It’s an emotional experience to think about how bonobos are on the brink of consciousness.” Craig Conway
Read Freedom Essay 21: How did we humans acquire our all-loving, unconditionally selfless moral conscience?, in which Jeremy explains how bonobos evidence the nurturing explanation for our extraordinary unconditionally selfless, all-loving, social, moral instinctive self or soul.
