I will be forever grateful to the extraordinary German behaviorist and biologist Konrad Lorenz. After Carl Jung, who taught me the meaning of dreams and saved me from neurosis and a prominent schizophrenia, Konrad Lorenz is my second savior and big hero.
His detailed research, his conclusions and discoveries, and the valuable knowledge he provided to the world, saved me from the dangerous darkness of ignorance. Only because I studied his books with the same attention I studied Carl Jung’s books, could I trust the unconscious mind as much as I did.
Lorenz received a Nobel Prize in 1974. However, until today the world didn’t recognize the importance of his discoveries. This is why until today many people believe that Charles Darwin’s conclusions about the evolution of the species was correct. Konrad Lorenz and his group of biologists have scientifically proven to the world that Darwin was wrong for believing that the evolutionary process of the animal species depended on their environment.
All animals are previously prepared in order to be able to survive in a dangerous environment before living. They find on Earth many enemies, and many difficult situations for their survival. If they were not previously prepared in order to be able to survive in these dangerous conditions, they would die before being able to learn how to survive. This means that their evolutionary process was already programmed as well. The animals’ evolution doesn’t depend on the environment they find because everything in their formation is already programmed.
All animal reactions are previously prepared in their cognitive mechanism. Their reactions follow chains, which form various behavioral patterns. The cognitive mechanism of all animals is already prepared to help them automatically act in their environment, independently of a learning process. The same happens with us, human beings.
Darwin was correct for discovering that we are primates. Of course his work is valuable, and it enlightened us in many ways. However, many scientific discoveries that happened after his death, like Konrad Lorenz’s discoveries, proved that the evolution of all species was a result of a very well organized plan. As a matter of fact, the entire nature of our planet is very well organized. All this organization cannot be a product of chance.
Lorenz concluded that practically all our reactions are previously prepared in our cognitive mechanism. These reactions start automatically working whenever we receive a specific stimulus from our environment. The same truth is observed in all animals. Their reactions are previously prepared and well organized, so that each animal will follow a precise sequence of movements from the beginning to the end, depending on the stimuli of their environment. This sequence of movements and reactions forms a programmed behavioral chain, which creates a behavioral pattern.
For example, all wild animals know how to kill their prey, and they are able to beat their prey in their first attempts, even before seeing any other animal of the same species doing so. Even animals kept in isolation, far from other animals of their species, were able to do the right movements, in the right sequence, and successfully kill their prey in their first attempts.
This fact proves that everything in the animal nature is previously prepared to follow a determined sequence of movements. Lorenz and his group of biologists give us many more explanations about this matter. I’m only giving you an idea about their research and discoveries.
Lorenz concluded that since all our reactions are programmed and we act without thinking most of the time, we cannot talk about “human freedom.” The human being is an animal already programmed to behave in a certain way, the same way that all animals are. In other words, we don’t really “decide” anything.
His conclusions were very unpleasant for those who prefer to consider the human being as a “superior creature” who knows what he is doing. This is why until today Lorenz’s work is not taught everywhere. Cognitive therapy, where humans are shown to be able to think rather than just act on animal instincts has replaced behaviorism, even though Konrad’s discoveries were true. Many other scientific discoveries prove that Konrad’s statements were real because our capacity to think logically is too limited. However, these discoveries go against the interests of the world leaders, who would have to admit that human beings cannot be considered responsible for their actions in most circumstances.
There is a part of our brain that can learn, and we can control our behavior and make our own decisions. However, this part will work only if we won’t be automatically induced to behave according to the animal behavioral patterns that predetermine our behavior.
Konrad Lorenz helped me believe that the wise unconscious mind that produces our dreams and regulates the functioning of our body really has a divine origin. I concluded that all the behavioral programs already prepared in our cognitive mechanism had to be prepared by a wise brain. The entire nature of our planet functions in a very well organized manner because it was organized by a superior brain. The same superior brain that created all behavioral programs (unconscious mind), sends us wise messages in dreams in order to save our mental stability.
I also noticed that the unconscious mind has saintly characteristics, which prove God’s existence. The unconscious words are like the words of a priest, or better saying, like the words of a wise philosopher. When we translate the meaning of dreams according to Jung’s method of dream interpretation we are able to understand the unconscious messages, which really have a divine origin. These messages cure our psyche with their wisdom.
I simplified Jung’s complicated method of dream interpretation, and today everyone can finally understand the precious unconscious guidance contained in the meaning of their dreams. Jung’s method is too complex and time consuming. I transformed it into a fast translation from images into words.
We are absurd and underdeveloped primates. We must develop our intelligence if we want to become superior creatures, and stop being preconditioned animals that merely follow their wild nature. In other words, we must surpass the behavioral programs we inherit in our cognitive mechanism.
The biggest part of our brain remains in a primitive condition because it belongs to the anti-conscience, our wild conscience, which didn’t evolve like our human conscience. This part refuses to evolve. It doesn’t accept changing its behavior or transforming its personality. It is our wild and evil conscience, which leads us to terror, craziness, and despair.
We have to learn many things, and transform our behavior through learning. We should not be accommodated animals who merely follow their behavioral patterns. We must acquire more knowledge and more consciousness, so that we may transform the anti-conscience into a positive component of our human conscience. This is how we’ll become true human beings instead of being wild animals. This is also how we’ll find sound mental health, peace, happiness, and real freedom.
