Annabelle West has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of New England, with a double major in English Literature and French. She went on to complete a Diploma of Education (Primary) and now teaches French at a prestigious boys’ school. Annabelle, whose brothers James and Stirling West are founding members of the WTM, is a long-time supporter of this project.

“It’s self-understanding we require and Jeremy Griffith’s explanation of the human condition makes you want to go outside, get up and dance! Why? Because it makes sense of our dark side and defends us, bringing relief and compassion to anyone’s life.”
Annabelle West

“The time is past for help which is only a Band-Aid.
It is time for radical thinking and for a solution on the grand scale.”

Sir James Darling,
Australia’s greatest-ever educator

The only REAL and lasting solution to the turmoil and suffering in the world

New Age, or ‘pseudo idealistic’, movements are about finding relief from, or escaping, our tormented human condition, rather than directly confronting and bringing reconciling and rehabilitating explanation to our conflicted and divided condition.

READ about how only Jeremy Griffith’s psychosis-addressing-and-solving, REAL explanation of the human condition can stop the disintegration of society and the destruction of our world that is happening everywhere we look.

  • “I have no doubt FREEDOM  provides the holy grail of insight we have sought for the psychological rehabilitation of the human race. This is the book we have been waiting for, it is the book that saves the world.”

    Professor Harry Prosen, former president of the Canadian Psychiatric Association

  • “Solving the ‘human condition’ has the power to end all of the suffering because it deals with the fundamental insecurity that drives all of human psychosis. FREEDOM has to be the most important book ever written.”

    Tim Macartney-Snape, AM OAM, biologist & world-renowned mountaineer

  • “This explanation brings about the true liberation of women and the reconciliation of the sexes, which is truly extraordinary and nothing short of life-changing for me.”

    Dr Anna Fitzgerald, Molecular biologist

  • FREEDOM is so powerful in its ability to bring compassion to both sides of a polar opposite situation because with understanding all the anger diffuses. It is a mind-fulfilling, intellectually-satisfying, angst-calming source of information.”

July 2022

It makes sense that interested people all over the world are putting their hands up to translate the writings of Jeremy Griffith to make it accessible in more languages. Clearly they want to spread the word about this fabulous life-saving and equally enthralling explanation of the human condition. To be able to share it in your native language with family and friends would mean much to many people who have been impressed reading it in English. So I’d like to draw your attention to the Translations Page of the World Transformation Movement so that you can see that certain publications are now represented in the following seven other languages. They are Afrikaans, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Polish and Spanish. If you click under the particular language, you will see what document/publication has been translated. While not all publications are fully translated there is an orderly process in which these jobs are being completed and it is therefore a work in progress. You must admit it is probably no easy feat translating a subject area that is barely recognised, discussed or written about. Whilst there is that challenge I have heard that it is a wonderfully rewarding and inspiring job to read, re-read, absorb, and process the information whilst simultaneously translating and doing something incredibly positive for the project and the future.

Kat on the Yarra River

Recently I was visiting Melbourne (during my school holidays) to thank a friend and WTM Facebook member Kat Adamson who had transcribed THE Interview (TI) into Polish language. I hadn’t seen her in a long time, and I was very appreciative of her offer to translate TI. In fact, THE Interview made so much sense to her, she was keen to share it to her Polish friends and family and in a couple of months she had completed the job. I have been told the translation will be uploaded on the WTM website very soon. Kat originally from Drezdenko in Poland now lives in Melbourne with her Australian husband. This is a photo of her and myself going for a kayak paddle on the Yarra River one evening.

Angela and Bella meeting up in Ballarat

I decided to drive home via Ballarat to meet other WTM members Angela Ryan (and Colleen Fryar who was unfortunately unable to meet with us). We met in Ballarat one evening and chatted about our respective introductions to the WTM, our journeys so far (Angela’s being relatively recent and mine being some 30 years ago) and everything we appreciate and do to help build momentum and create more awareness and knowledge of the WTM’s writings and understandings. I had also wished to meet up with the numerous WTM Melbourne members whilst I was staying in Melbourne but this proved a little difficult with the time I had and I knew they had met up for a big get together a week or two prior to my visit.

Colourful fireworks display

I’d like to include the following quotes about fellowship from Jeremy’s writing that brings further meaning and relevance to my update above.

“Understanding that we are equally good and being able to see what we have been through will bring great compassion and fellowship to our species. Fellowship is the answer to the problem of exposure. Adjusting to the new world is not only possible, it will be the most wonderful experience many of us have ever had. It simply requires a little patience for us to see and accept how it works.” (Beyond the Human Condition Chapter 11 Adjusting to the Truth.)

“The relief, excitement, fellowship and meaning that is now available is so spectacularly wonderful that every human from every corner of the world will, in the not-too-distant future, want to become a World Transformation Movement member. Love has come to the world in its purest form, namely as relieving biological understanding of the human condition! So become a member and join us now!!” (More Good Info Email 10 Join the WTM’s Global Momentum!)

One reason, among many, for why I find the World Transformation Movement (WTM) and Jeremy Griffith’s work so magnificent is the appraisal of beauty and sensitivity. The significance and importance of soul is now understood within the explanation of the human condition and its importance is now resurrected. Up until now soul has been necessarily and tragically suppressed and oppressed in all forms within us and without us, because it was variously too confronting of our corrupted human condition to live with. All this changes now and our dreams of returning to soul come true with humanity’s task of championing the ego having been completed through first principle understanding and explanation. By returning to soul, we can allow soul back into our lives as opposed to having to ruthlessly deny it.

The following quote is from paragraph 1147 of Chapter 9.2 in FREEDOM. It says;

“Our previously inescapable need to live alienated from our beautiful soul, with all the horror that such a destructive, dishonest and shallow existence entailed, can now end, and the human race at last return to the non-upset ideal state we have longed for, be it Heaven, Paradise, Eden, Nirvana, Utopia, Shangri-La, or whatever term we ascribed to it—the fundamental difference being that where we were once, as Moses said in the Bible, ‘in the image of God’ (Gen. 1:27), instinctively orientated to the Godly integrative meaning of life, this time we’ll return in a fully conscious, aware and understanding state. We will be ‘like God, knowing [understanding] good and evil’ (ibid. 3:5). Again, as the poet T.S. Eliot wrote, ‘We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time’ (Little Gidding, 1942). YES, with understanding of the human condition found, we can finally be upset-free, secure, sound, effective managers of our world and, as a result, the peace and happiness that humans throughout history have hardly dared to dream of can come into being.”

In the following amazingly honest cartoon by Michael Leunig from Chapter 2:12 of FREEDOM titled; While denial has been necessary, you can’t find the truth with lies, he shows how this beautiful and sensitive soulful and loving world can only be accessed by leaving behind the great artificial and superficial, alienated metropolis that has been built on dishonest denial to seek ‘truth’ in the dark night of all that we have repressed, and, by so doing, resurrect ‘beauty’ on Earth.

Another one of Leunig’s cartoons from Chapter 3.6 of FREEDOM, paragraph 274-276, shows why we had to attack the world of the soul for all its undeserved criticism. Jeremy Griffith has added a new ending to this cartoon showing how this all changes because we can now understand that necessary battle, therefore have compassion and understanding for it, and realise we were not bad and no longer have to retaliate.

I recommend reading the chapters involving these cartoons for further explanation such as 2.12, 3.6 and all of Chapter 9.

Recently I filmed a short video of why people who are new to the information would benefit from contacting the WTM. It was posted, along with the following blurb, on the World Transformation Movement Facebook Community page earlier in the month and I’d like to include it here to encourage anyone who is reading this to reach out.

‘Plato was the greatest philosopher of all time and metaphorically predicted everything about our once innocent state, then the human condition and also our fear of hearing the truth or our ‘deaf effect’ as Jeremy Griffith describes it. Jeremy Griffith has now brought scientific understanding and explanation to all of these elements, and it is all perfectly aligned to Plato’s philosophy and vision. Being unable to hear these truths is a very real factor and hurdle we now need to overcome and, in this video, I wish to encourage you to work alongside someone in the World Transformation Movement Sydney Centre and get support and assistance while you absorb these ideas. It is the recommended method.

This is the link to the video: www.facebook.com/annabelle.west.

Image of Bella in her video

These are some comments that I thought pertinent to include:

‘Wonderful video, Bella, thank you. I just loved hearing your take on Plato. I wasn’t familiar with him until reading FREEDOM and I believe I took option 2 without knowing it at the time but then needed option 4. Looking at my own human condition was a bit difficult just as you say. So good to have the information now and be able to work it all out.’

‘Only someone living outside the cave could describe humanity so accurately as living inside the cave. Plato was a true prophet.’

‘That was awesome, thanks Annabelle, for the reminder of the best option for understanding this information: cooperatively by reading, listening, questioning, discussing and thinking, which is through my experience of "going alone", the best.’

November 2021

I shared this recently on Facebook and thought I’d put here as well as it’s another wonderful example of how understanding sheds light on everything www.instagram.com.

Many scientists scorn religion. But now that we have the scientific explanation of the human condition, we can see how extraordinarily insightful some religious metaphors are.

For example, now that we understand that our angry, egocentric and alienated state was the result of a clash between our emerging consciousness and our pre-established, loving instincts, we can appreciate just how accurate the Biblical story of Adam and Eve, Moses’s 3,500-year-old, pre-scientific description of the human condition is.

The book of Genesis story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden describes the primary situation involved in our human condition of the psychologically upsetting battle that emerged between our instincts and our conscious intellect’s search for knowledge.

It says Adam and Eve/we were ‘created… in the image of God’, obviously meaning we once lived in a pre-human-condition-afflicted state of original innocence where we were perfectly instinctively orientated to the cooperative, selfless, loving, integrative, ‘Godly’ ideals of life (God is explained by biologist Jeremy Griffith as being the integrative meaning of life).

The Genesis story then says that Adam and Eve were ‘disobedient’ and ate the ‘fruit’ ‘from the tree of knowledge of good and evil’ because it was ‘desirable for gaining wisdom’.

In other words, we developed a conscious mind and free will.

The story then says Adam and Eve (i.e. we fully conscious humans) then became perpetrators of ‘sin’ and were regarded as ‘evil’, and as a result were ‘banished… from the Garden of Eden’ of our species’ original Edenic state of innocence.

So the story recognised that our ‘fallen’, corrupted angry, egocentric and alienated, psychologically upset, human-condition-stricken state developed, which then, through ‘gaining wisdom’, had to be understood in order for us to become ‘like God, knowing good and evil’, a state of psychologically relieving and rehabilitating understanding that has now arrived and is presented in Jeremy Griffith's [free] book, FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition.

The following quote is from paragraph 740 of FREEDOM by Jeremy Griffith

"While resigned adults became accomplished at overlooking the hypocrisy of human life because of its human-condition-confronting implications, children in their naivety could still see it. They asked: ‘Mum, why do you and Dad argue all the time?’ and ‘Why are we always worried about having enough money?’….and ‘Why are there wars?’….and ‘Why are there pictures about sex everywhere?’"

And the truth is, these are the real questions about human life, as this quote acknowledges:

"The great questions are those an intelligent child asks and, getting no answers, stops asking."

From now on we can safely answer these questions 🙏🙏🙏

For context, inspiration and truth read 'Chapter 8:9 Early Sobered Adolescentman' of FREEDOM.

This is a section from a presentation that Jeremy did that is very interesting. There’s 2 points here. The first is that we have such immense capability when we aren’t locked up with the human condition, an indication of how powerful we will be with understanding and when generations are no longer hurt! Secondly, although I can’t fully connect with this I know it is true and what we experienced at 13 years old, while horrific, is proof of how much we need to support this now as it shows just how good it can be when we return to a life without the crushing burden of the human condition; our internal battle.

"Autistic kids when they disconnect completely from the world, they have enormous powers that suddenly emerge, such as being able to remember everything, every phone number in the phone book; to be able to look at that picture up there and instantly reproduce it in every detail — extraordinary powers. With music, some are able to remember Beethoven’s symphony after one listening and god knows what else [read more about autism in chapter 8:16C of FREEDOM]. So that’s how sensitive we once were. Van der Post talks about the Bushmen — and they’re only relatively innocent—knowing what it felt like to be a baobab tree or a lizard. So there are incredible powers hidden away, blocked by our alienation, and so that’s what our soul remembers, this magic life!

So you’re a 13 year old and you start to see these elements of selfishness and anger and indifference in yourself — how contrasting is that to this magic state? That’s how depressing the human condition is if you face it down full on. That’s how beautiful our soul is and 13 year olds know it, they haven’t blocked anything out yet, they know it’s that beautiful. [Read more about this stage in chapter 8:9]."

Massive Autumn maple trees in Bowral, NSW Australia

It's that time of the year around the Southern Highlands when the leaves are golden and hues of orange, brown and purple before they drop to the ground. This sight is uplifting as is the colour of the booklet for THE Interview and if you haven't read it or watched it then you must. THE Interview is our go-to summary of the explanation of the human condition and how it is saving the world.

March 2021

Right from when I came across these ideas at a young age I was drawn to the fact that although Jeremy Griffith has explained and made sense of so much, it was comforting to know that every regligion and mythology has recognised that we have departed from an original innocence. It felt right that this was making sense of a universal truth that was so obvious. I have never read much about mythology and would love to read some of the writings of Hesiod and Plato etc.

Here is a passage from Part 2 of THE Interview transcript.

"Jeremy: And with regard to recognition of the upsetting conflict between our moral instincts and our conscious intellect, the Biblical story of Adam and Eve is far from the only recognition of it from ancient times. Indeed, as the researcher Richard Heinberg summarised in his 1990 book Memories & Visions of Paradise (underlinings are Jeremy’s emphasis), ‘Every religion begins with the recognition that human consciousness has been separated from the divine Source, that a former sense of oneness... has been lost... everywhere in religion and myth there is an acknowledgment that we have departed from an original... innocence and can return to it only through the resolution of some profound inner discord... the cause of the Fall is described variously as disobedience, as the eating of a forbidden fruit [from the tree of knowledge], and as spiritual amnesia [forgetting, blocking out, denial, alienation, which is our psychosis]’ (pp.81-82 of 282). So all our religions and most of our mythologies have recognised the basic conflict within us—that the emergence of ‘consciousness’ caused our ‘Fall’ from ‘innocence’.

  • Hesiod, from the Monnus mosaic, c.200

    Hesiod, from the Monnus mosaic, c.200

  • Hesiod Theogony Works And Days cover

Way back in about 800BC, the Greek poet Hesiod wrote of our species’ pre-conscious time of living cooperatively and lovingly in his epic poem Works and Days: ‘When gods alike and mortals rose to birth / A golden race the immortals formed on earth... Like gods they lived, with calm untroubled mind/ Free from the toils and anguish of our kind / Nor e’er decrepit age misshaped their frame... Strangers to ill, their lives in feasts flowed by... Dying they sank in sleep, nor seemed to die / Theirs was each good; the life-sustaining soil / Yielded its copious fruits, unbribed by toil / They with abundant goods ’midst quiet lands / All willing shared the gathering of their hands’ (The Remains of Hesiod the Ascræan, tr. C.A. Elton, pp.17-18). So yes, they didn’t have a troubled conscious mind, and they lived a sharing, gentle life...

...The thing is, Hesiod and Plato, like Moses, were living at a time when science still had to be developed, so they weren’t able to provide the redeeming, instincts-can-orientate-but-only-nerves-can-understand, good reason WHY we departed from ‘innocence’and seemingly became ‘evil’, bad people.

Craig: Yes, because there was no science back then.

Jeremy: Precisely, it’s only in the last 150 years or so that science has given us A: the ability to know that the gene-based natural selection process gives species orientations to the world; and B: the knowledge of our nerves and how they are able to remember events, which, much developed, has led to our mind being able to sufficiently understand the relationship between cause and effect to become conscious of, or aware of, or intelligent about those relationships."

Freedom Essay 12 or its podcast (also 12) or video is fantastic, covering subjects ranging from ‘Elephant in the Living Room’ to Plato, to cave vs sunlight, to songs and great artists recognising the truth, to ‘upset’ being the greatest of all stories and a heroic state.

The first introductory talk begins with the following intriguing words, “I might start by putting up this little drawing I’ve done. It shows the proverbial ‘elephant in the living room’ of our lives, which is a metaphor that refers to an extremely important issue or subject, but one that no one acknowledges.”

Such awesome understanding and therefore therapy provided to all! No one is above or below requiring this understanding. Everyone deserves the key to the lock.

I love the power of U2’s song Where the Streets Have No Name. In Freedom Essay 45, Jeremy writes about Prophetic Songs. He starts the essay by writing, “Apart from romance, the greatest of all themes of our best songwriters has been the dream of humanity one day finding the fabulously liberating and transforming understanding of our species’ good-and-evil-stricken human condition. And the image songwriters invariably reach for to express this dream of enlightenment is the rising sun — because light symbolises knowledge and its ability to defeat the darkness of ignorance; with the ultimate ignorance being of ourselves, understanding of our troubled human condition.”

Bono singing

And then in a later section devoted to some of Bono’s lyrics, Jeremy writes, “Then there are Bono’s words from U2’s 1987 song Where The Streets Have No Name: ‘I want to tear down the walls that hold us inside [Plato’s cave of ignorant darkness that humanity has been imprisoned inside], I want to reach out and touch the flame [of the truth about ourselves that will take us to a place], where the streets have no name [where we no longer have to egocentrically name everything]. I want to feel the sunlight [of enlightenment] on my face, see the dust cloud [of our tortured human condition] disappear without a trace, I want to take shelter from the poison rain, where the streets have no name… We’re beaten and blown by the wind, trampled in dust. [But] I’ll show you a place, high on a [redeemed and rehabilitated] desert plain, where the streets have no name… Then there will be no toil or sorrow, then there will be no time of pain.’”

Watch a pulsating version of Where The Streets Have No Name.

I’ve always been musically oriented since a young child so when I saw the capacity of this information to explain music I found the explanation so enjoyable to read, in particular songs and lyrics that anticipate the arrival of the truth. If you go to paragraph 1283 of FREEDOM: The End of the Human Condition and read this section it starts:

“Interestingly, in a 2006 interview with the Australian television presenter Andrew Denton, Bono, the prophetic lead singer of the rock band U2, said, ‘You do get the feeling in Australia that there’s….something going on down here, a new society being dreamt up…[that in Australia there is] the opportunity to lead the world’…”

This section of the book includes singers and songs such as Mark Seymour’s The Holy Grail which used to be a favourite (we used to belt this one out at parties).

I suggest you keep reading through to the end of paragraph 1291 of FREEDOM as it includes all manner of songs, eras and profound meanings, and ….well you may as well continue to the end of the book, just a few pages more!

I really enjoyed watching and reading THE Interview. The final ‘highlight’ was reading Part 4 of the transcript which show what’s possible now.

It is very nourishing to tune in with others to the Global Waver meetings when I can. This is a way to see how our ever growing community is dealing with this information in their lives whether they are introducing it to friends, family, the local library or the local paper or to download experiences surrounding supporting these ideas. I really look forward to joining these on Sundays.

It’s great to visit somewhere local where you can relax and feel inspired to read or take a moment to reflect on what really matters in our busy lives (and throw the dog a ball and grab a coffee). I do this at various spots around the Highlands. This photo is from Exeter. I try to take some time to read a few pages of FREEDOM or to at least take a moment to reflect on life now with understanding.

I’m loving the online FREEDOM readings on a weekend or weekday with WTM Albury founder Sarah Colquhoun. It’s an opportunity to frame up with the truth about the human condition and take time to appreciate what an incredible gift we have come across with these understandings. I recommend these Freedom Readings online because you feel connected to others through reading the book and taking turns in doing this and it keeps you grounded in the information within the book. It’s a big tide we are turning without and within ourselves.

THE Interview booklets also arrived this month and here is a picture of my father reading it. It’s an excellent concise version of what one needs to know to be introduced to the human condition. From this point one can delve deeper into further detail.
