In “Rediscovering the Wisdom of Human Nature: How Civilization Destroys Happiness,” Chet Shupe describes how evolution programmed the feelings of all animate beings, so that, by doing what they love doing, they automatically serve the life of their species. As unlikely as it may seem, one simple law maintains the order required for countless species to live in sufficient harmony, for life to flourish on this planet. Shupe calls it The Law of Life: “To serve life, do things that feel good, and avoid activities that result in emotional pain.”

Through The Law of Life, evolution organically governs the lives of countless creatures, rewarding each individual with pleasure, or punishing it with pain, for serving—or not serving—life. Among all beings on earth, humans are unique, in that we rejected evolution’s governance, to create an order imposed by rules and laws, based on how we think things should be. Though we remain capable of experiencing the feelings of pleasure and pain, through which evolution would normally inspire us to serve life, institutionally imposed order deprives us of the freedom to comply with The Law of Life. Indeed, our unnatural state of suffering is largely the result of not being free to honor Life’s Law.

Our problem is that, a few thousand years ago, our ancestors innocently elected to place governance in the hands of institutions. In that instant, they deprived themselves—and all who came after—of the freedom to do what humans naturally love doing—to take care of life, by being true to how we feel in our relationships with the people around us.

Shupe’s “Rediscovering the Wisdom of Human Nature” reveals the crucial role language played in humanity’s fateful decision to outlaw Nature’s governance. Ultimately, this changed the human lifestyle from the contentment experienced through community, to social isolation and unrest, and all the emotional and social ills that implies. But our species need not be doomed, nor our happiness eternally repressed. There is a reason our ancestors felt compelled to outlaw Nature’s guidance. Once we understand why they did it, and why we continue recapitulating the error, we will know what must occur, if we are to regain our spiritual freedom. Then, our emotions may well lead us to spiritual homes—places where we accept one another for who we are, instead of what our institutions insist we are supposed to be.

Author’s Biography
As a whistle-blower to the world, Chet Shupe speaks with urgency about the need to rediscover people’s connections with their own nature, if we are ever again to experience the contentment of sisterhood and brotherhood that is our natural heritage.

Chet Shupe is an electronics engineer who suffered from severe Attention Deficit Disorder, for much of his life. When he was 43, his condition was finally diagnosed, and he began treatment with Ritalin. Suddenly, life made sense. As a result of that extraordinary experience, he began writing on brain dysfunction to provide a conceptual framework for medically treating the brain.

As a result of that effort—combined with his professional knowledge of system control theory—Shupe’s subject soon changed from brain dysfunction to cultural dysfunction. He realized that the brain cannot find lasting contentment, nor can it produce behavior that serves its species, when functioning in a reality that, emotionally, it does not comprehend.
