Welcome to the
World Transformation Movement, Cape Town

The World Transformation Movement (WTM) Cape Town Centre is here to support you in your journey of understanding Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith’s breakthrough explanation of the human condition. His reconciling and redeeming ‘instinct vs. intellect’ explanation finally solves the riddle of our ‘good and evil’ conflicted human condition, and ultimately transforms the human race.

With every day bringing more alarming evidence of the turmoil of the human situation, it is unarguable that this psychologically relieving understanding of the reason for our destructive behaviour is the ONLY way we can halt the slide to total chaos and devastation. The World Transformation Movement, which is a non-profit organisation, was established in Australia in 1983 to ensure the world-saving importance of this explanation is disseminated across the planet.

The most prominent members of the WTM Cape Town Centre are James Moffett and John Mulder; they are the most well versed in these transforming understandings of the human condition at their centre, and therefore the best placed to help people in their region develop their interest in Jeremy Griffith’s work.

James is a world-renowned organic farmer and organic milling and products innovator who founded the WTM Cape Town Centre in 2017.

John, who had a successful career in accounting and is now the co-owner of Hermitage Food and Medicine Nursery, has been developing his interest in the work of the WTM since 2019.

  • World Transformation Movement New Zealand Co Founder Dr. Anna Fitzgerald

    DR ANNA FITZGERALD, molecular biologist, genome projects strategist, and co-founder of the WTM New Zealand Centre: ‘This explanation of the human condition in FREEDOM brings about the true liberation of women and the reconciliation of the sexes, which is truly extraordinary.” 

    For an excellent description of why Anna is so excited about setting up the World Transformation Movement New Zealand New Zealand Centre, read the piece about Olive Schreiner on the Philosopher Giants page.
  • Pre-eminent South African philosopher and WTM supporter, Sir Laurens van der Post

    SIR LAURENS VAN DER POST, the pre-eminent South African philosopher, wrote in 1961 that “I had a private hope of the utmost importance to me. The Bushman’s physical shape combined those of a child and man; I surmised that examination of his inner life might reveal a pattern which reconciled the spiritual opposites in the human being and made him whole…it might start the first movement towards a reconciliation” (The Heart of the Hunter).

    In 1988, in response to Jeremy Griffith’s first book about his reconciling understanding of our conflicted, ‘innocence versus egocentrically embattled’ human condition, Sir Laurens wrote to Jeremy asking “Could you please send me an extra copy of your book? Yours to me is already out on loan because it was so appreciated”. And in 1993, three years before his death, Sir Laurens further wrote to Jeremy saying “I would hope you will always know how we value the examples you set and the work you are doing in Australia.” Read more about Sir Laurens van der Post on the Philosopher Giants page.
  • Dr Ian Player, South African conservationist, naturalist and philosopher | World Transformation Movement

    DR IAN PLAYER, the great South African conservationist, naturalist and philosopher said in a letter to Jeremy Griffith in 2003 about Jeremy’s best-selling book A Species In Denial, “I believe you are on to getting answers to much that has puzzled and bewildered humanity for a long time”, and in 2014 about the draft of Jeremy's latest book, FREEDOM is a book of tremendous importance.”

  • World-renowned psychiatrist and World Transformation Movement supporter, Professor Harry Prosen

    PROFESSOR HARRY PROSEN, a former President of the Canadian Psychiatric Association and the author of the Introduction to FREEDOM, has said, “I have no doubt this biological explanation is the holy grail of insight we have sought for the psychological rehabilitation of the human race.”

News from WTM Cape Town

November 2020

The following article written by WTM Cape Town member John Mulder, was published in the South African Overberg district local news paper, Zuid Courant, on 3 November 2020.

Artikel vir Zuid Courant – Overberg distrik.

Vandag (3 November) kom die Amerikaanse presidensiële verkiesing tot n punt. ‘n Veldtog wat gekenmerk was deur ‘n bitter en venynige stryd tussen partye en persoonlikhede. Eintlik is die dinamika om ‘n hoogs sigbare gebeurtenis soos wat ons hier ervaar net ‘n spieëlbeeld van ons lewensondervinding as mens. Woede, ongenaakbaarheid, haat en eie belang ongeag van die koste daaraan verbonde. Ons ‘goed-en-kwaad’ geteisterde menslike toestand. Aan die een kant die mens se vermoë vir uitnemende dade van liefde en omgee vir andere, opgeweeg teen ons paradoksale gedrag van onbeskryflik gru dade teenoor mense en ons omgewing.

Ek het onlangs op die volgende omskrywing afgekom van woede in mense: “Woede is eerstens ʼn biologiese verskynsel wat in die oerbrein ontstaan en tweedens ʼn emosionele verskynsel. Dit is dus ’n normale, menslike reaksie.” Meeste mense aanvaar dat die oerbrein waarna hier verwys word die onderliggende rede is waarom ons amper ‘onwillikeurig’ onderhewig is aan ‘goed’en’kwaad’ spanning daagliks.

Die volgende aanhalings wat die aanname egter weerspreek dat ons woede ‘instinktief’ is, kom uit die navorsing van Australiese Bioloog, Jeremy Griffith. Ek is van mening dat Griffith daarin slaag om, met deernis, die ware Sielkundige verklaring van die Menslike Toestand met ‘n versoenbare biologiese oplossing staaf van hierdie uiters belangrike vraag waarom die mensdom, brutaal-mededingend, selfsugtig en aggressief is. Die voortbestaan van ons planeet en die mensdom is in gedrang. Derhalwe is hierdie verklaring van kardinale belang.

“Hierdie idee dat ons wrede mededingende en aggressiewe, ons-moet-ons-genereproduseer-instinkte het, kan tog seker nie die werklike rede vir ons spesie se mededingende en aggressiewe gedrag wees nie. Want die woorde wat gebruik word om ons mensegedrag te beskryf – soos egosentries, arrogant, besiel, terneergedruk, bedrieglik, pessimisties, optimisties, vals, haatdraend, sinies, lelik, sadisties, immoreel, briljant, skuldige, boos, psigoties, neuroties en vervreemdend – is almal woorde wat die betrokkenheid van ONS spesie se ten volle bewuste denkende verstand erken. Hulle toon dat daar ’n sielkundige dimensie aan ons gedrag is; dat ons nie aan ’n geneties-opportunisties-gedrewe ‘dierlike toestand’ ly nie, maar eerder ’n bewusteverstandsgebaseerde, sielkundig-versteurde MENSLIKE TOESTAND.

Bowendien het mense samewerkende, onselfsugtige en liefdevolle morele instinkte – en dit kom tot uitdrukking in wat ons ons morele bewussyn of gewete noem – en dit is die presiese teenoorgestelde van ons mededingende, selfsugtige en aggressiewe instinkte.”

Visit to Sir Laurens Van der Post’s home town and Memorial.

FREEDOM on Sir Laurens van der Post's desk

Thanks to FREEDOM and Jeremy, I have wanted to visit Sir Lauren’s memorial and Philippolis, his original home-town, since 2017, so it was a very special “walkabout-with-purpose” occasion for me to head north on the (African) Sunshine Highway for a visit.

I keep Jeremy’s words “we are all hero’s”, alongside all humans on this final leg of our collective journey to our freedom and Sir Lauren’s wisdom: “The truth is no one or no thing in essence dies! We and all things are eternal and everlasting in the sense that their meaningfulness is eternal and everlasting, irrespective of what happens to our universe. Sir Laurens van der Post described how humans carry on in an even greater way after their physical death when he wrote: ‘We make a great mistake when we think that people whose lives have been intimately woven into our own, cease to influence us when they die… The dead become part of the dynamics of our spirit, of the basic symbolism of our minds. They join the infinite ranks of the past, as vast as the hosts of the future, and so much greater than our own little huddle of people in the present’ (The Face Beside the Fire, 1953, p.63 of 311)”.

The caretaker of Sir Lauren’s memorial, Elsa Lombard, was wonderful and totally in awe of Sir Laurens, and very happily accepting a copy of FREEDOM to place on Sir Laurens’s desk (sent out from London by his daughter, Lucia, including many of his books) which is in the Memorial Centre.

FREEDOM book by Jeremy Griffith in a garden amongst herb seedlings

FREEDOM amongst our new veg and herb seedlings in our Hermitage Valley nursery, Swellendam. FREEDOM from the Human Condition is a book about renewal and takes us on a journey from discovering the truth about our upset human condition state to a psychosis free transformed state where life has a glorious new meaning. A redeeming new mindset and the ability to see yesterdays ‘normal’ for what it was. Decades of a mostly superficial existence that normalized greed, egocentricity, self-obsession, indifference, depression, hate, anger, guilt and more. FREEDOM heralds in the biblical revelation of a new heaven and a new earth, all rationally explained with scientific understanding. Christ explained to the Pharisees that the Kingdom of Heaven was in them, a renewed state of being. From his parable of the sower we can also conclude that the new earth is the fertile minds of men where the integrated meaning of life has taken root. The same earth covered in the beginning with darkness and where a new day was created to bring the light of truthful understanding.

THE ROAD HOME

Sunrise over stream in Cape Town

The ‘Road Home’ is our view on our early morning walks in Wolvengat, near Cape Agulhas, through beautiful and sweet-smelling indigenous Fynbos and certainly reflects our family's progress to understanding our human condition: in the correct direction to the sun or light. The sun or fire has been a metaphor of humanity’s for knowledge and truth since the time of Greek philosopher Plato.

TRACTOR MANUAL

FREEDOM follows us everywhere: the most useful resource for tackling any job on the farm, which requires some out-of-the-box thinking like a tractor issue, initially unsolveable frustrating, becomes a walk in the park, solvable problem with a calm, open mind after referring to FREEDOM.

James and Vanessa Moffett caught up with Wendy Crawford to discuss FREEDOM’s insights. Wendy is an experienced teacher of organics, permaculture and agriculture, so our conversation involved a lovely mix of nutrition for our bodies and ‘manna’ for our minds! We also touched on how the human condition impacts upon sustainable agricultural practice.

After seeing a special sight in his neighbourhood recently, WTM Cape Town member John Mulder commented "Life is beautiful when observed through the eyes of a child — a time of innocence, a time of truth, no blemishes of lies and guilt and fear.” As Jeremy quotes Plato 360BC in para 180 of FREEDOM: ‘our state of innocence, before we had any experience of evils to come, when we were… simple and calm and happy… pure ourselves and not yet enshrined in that living tomb which we carry about, now that we are imprisoned’

James and Ross Moffett motored to Hermanus (approximately 2 hour’s drive along the coast, east of Cape Town) from Wolvengat Village to meet Karen Riley, WTM Central Canada Centre founder, who was travelling through South Africa. They had a lively and lovely discussion about FREEDOM which covered many topics including the state of South Africa and the uptake of FREEDOM compared to Canada, their country’s economies and demographics, and how they and their families are dealing with all the FREEDOM information. After a way too short visit, James and Ross headed back home, after wishing Karen happy travelling to Cape Town on the final leg of her travels

WTM Cape Town Centre supporters John and Yvette Mulder were asked by a Stellenbosch University student group to participate in a discussion about “intentional community living”, which is defined as living in alignment with your values and beliefs. It was a fantastic opportunity to introduce Jeremy Griffith’s explanation of the human condition to students and within that compassionate framework discuss how this explanation presents the only means to truly ameliorate the egocentric, selfish and competitive behaviour that undermines our relationships and attempts at sustainability.

As John said, “This request was prompted by young post-apartheid academics in an attempt to get to grips with cultural and social differences that they still encounter in our South African society. While Yvette and I took a conscious decision a number of years ago to opt for an off-the-grid, simple, and (as far as possible) self-sustaining lifestyle in an attempt to avoid the onslaught of materialism on our lives and the resultant pressures it brought to bear, I have known for many years that the ism’s of the old world that we live in do not have the answers and are in fact failing all the time. Capitalism (trickle-down economics), socialism or whatever pseudo quick fix ism’s put forward just won’t do it—as new world WTM members we now understand the paramount reason for these failing ism’s is simply the human condition.”

“The silver bullet they [students] are looking for is simply the unconditionally selfless behaviour that results from the truths encapsulated in FREEDOM. So, needless to say, our contribution was to present FREEDOM and the solutions it offers to ‘own our shadow’ (Carl Jung)—that is the ONLY approach and undoubtedly the ‘missing link’ in addressing these challenges in human interaction and for that matter the problems of humanity as a whole.”

James was recently asked to write a review of FREEDOM for a local monthly newspaper, the Greyton Mail. The editor had approached James saying, ‘I read with great interest your posts about Jeremy Griffith and his human condition books. Please would you consider writing a review for the Greyton Mail August edition? I’m sure readers will be taken with your passion and insight as much as I was.’ This is the article as it appeared in the August 2019 edition.
