A definition of the term ‘human condition’, and everyday references we use which refer to this issue underlying all aspects of our behaviour.
An overview of the implications of the explanations–the first-principle-based biology underpinning them–and how resolving the human condition is fundamentally different to other attempts to improve the human situation.
Explaining the human condition involves looking at what occurred in human evolutionary development when the intellect evolved to the level where it could take control from the instincts. In particular, what occurred in the human species when our intellectual, or conscious thinking ability emerged in the presence of our already established genetic, or instinctive self.
The essential observation is that the two systems clashed. This conflict is explained under the sections:
‘Whenever there has been a major insoluble problem for mankind, the answer, when finally found,
has always been very simple’ (Allan Savory, Holistic Resource Management, 1988).
