“The book was written beautifully. The philosophy was very interesting and a whole new concept for me. Definitely an eye opener.” – Tamara Fayez, Amazon Customer

“Rediscovering the Wisdom of Human Nature” describes how evolution programmed the feelings of all animals, 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.

For a species to exist requires more than just its physical manifestation. If the species is to flourish, evolution must also govern individual behavior. Thus, a species requires an emotional—or spiritual—manifestation, as well. To provide it, evolution gave every animate being the ability to feel, and programmed its feelings, so that, by seeking pleasure and avoiding pain, it contributes to its species’ wellbeing. Contrary to all other lifeforms on earth, the human species rejected evolution’s governance, and created an artificial order prescribed by rules and laws. The fact that each of us experiences sensations of pleasure and pain reveals that evolution is still trying to control our behavior through the guidance of our spirits. But, as subjects of written laws, we are not free to comply with The Law of Life. Indeed, the suffering we modern humans experience, in our daily lives, is the means by which evolution is informing us that we are not honoring life’s law.

But our species need not be doomed, nor our happiness eternally repressed! Once we understand why our ancestors felt compelled to outlaw Nature’s governance, and why we feel it necessary to continue the practice, we will know what we must do, to regain our spiritual freedom—the freedom to serve life. Once we’re free to do what feels good, our emotions will lead us to spiritual homes—places where we support and trust each other, as the beings Nature created, not the contrived ones our rules and laws keep forcing us 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 the individual or the species, when functioning in a reality that, emotionally, it does not comprehend.
