In this context it considers
the problems that we cause (e.g., environmental destruction, war, and ingrained
inequality), many of which appear inescapable, hence the repetition of history.
However, on review it is clear that the problems caused by humanity are actually
just symptoms of even deeper problems. Also, symptoms can only be treated, not
solved, which is akin to treating the pain and fever caused by illness but not
confronting the underlying disease. Furthermore, the deeper problems, too, are
symptoms of still deeper problems. Ultimately, one is led to the core aspects
of our nature: to the fundamental conditions of our existence and our reactions

Announcing the publication of: Freedom From Form
Freedom From Form covers many subjects, but its central theme is human
evolution. It reviews the directions by which we seem to be evolving, including
such things as the development of technology and changes that have occurred
to our consciousness. And, it provides a means to evaluate whether they are
real ways forward or evolutionary dead-ends.
Said another way, since we cannot change our basic conditions, we must change
our reactions to them. This is the only way the whole string of embedded problems/symptoms
will disappear. But this adjustment, which on the face of it is conceptually simple
think of moving from personal selfishness to cooperation is in fact
so profound that it constitutes it will constitute nothing less
than the evolution of our species.
In addition, you cannot solve a problem without knowing where you want to go.
And, you have to know this in well thought-out detail. This is the linkage: symptoms
reveal problems, which in turn reflect an imprecise statement or purposeful misdirection
Right now America the world all of Civilization
is at war with terrorism. We are also at war with drugs, and crime, and poverty.
We have so many wars now that we have a war du jour. This is absurd. Terrorism,
drugs, crime and even poverty are merely symptoms. We may treat them with guns,
prisons, police, or welfare whatever but even if they seem to go
away they will return. These are wars that can never be won. Indeed, in
many cases that is not even the goal. While they may be launched with a clear
basis, i.e., we do have the right to defend ourselves, they are quickly transformed
to serve other purposes: those of their promoters.
For symptoms to be treated such that they never return, that they never can return,
the underlying problems must be solved. It is time to fight these problems.
Freedom From Form will change the way you look at the world, yourself and
- It teaches that existence can best be understood as the interaction and transformation
of forms, and as the resolution of an underlying conflict between
deterministic influences and free will.
- It is an evolutionary study of the human experience, and of our social development,
- It presents a new way to analyze our diverse social problems. It teaches that
while such problems appear different and distinct, they actually are just symptoms
of a much deeper malaise.
- It is a call to activism, and a comprehensive guide thereto, including of all
relevant ethical issues.
- It includes a complete statement of the social goals that are appropriate for
- It is an exposition of a social structure, unique in human history, through
which these goals can be achieved, and of how we can transform our current society
- It is a model of the future evolution of humanity, to a new species, with a
reappraisal of evolutionary processes, and a description of the neurological and
behavioral changes that likely will occur.
- It presents a proof of why technology, as it is currently practiced, will not
itself lead to such evolution.
- And, it is an explanation of the purpose of life, and the universe.
