About World Transformation Movement Sweden
The WTM Sweden Centre is dedicated to providing a forum and community in Sweden for those people wanting to support and learn about the critically important work of the World Transformation Movement and its support of Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith’s breakthrough, all-important understanding of the human condition.
Founder of the WTM Sweden Centre, Olof Österman is an accountant/financial controller. He is currently completing a Master’s degree of science in business and economics from Umeå University.
The Human Condition
FOR MOST OF US our main personal concerns are how to be happy, feel good about ourselves and establish a sense of worth or self-esteem. Our wider concern is how to stop human suffering and conflict, and how to end all the devastation in our world.
For a long time we have been able to do little more than deal with these problems superficially, however, we have now reached a point where patch up repairs of ourselves and our earth are no longer sufficient. The truth is we are fast approaching a state of complete exhaustion, both of ourselves and our planet. We need a profound solution, THE profound solution, if there is one, and there is.
To find the profound solution we have to go back to the basic questions most of us have long since given up struggling with. From there we have to carefully unravel what has been causing human upset from its beginning. This will take us back through the mists of time to our earliest ancestors. It is a thought journey that will require a little patience as there are many paradoxes to grasp along the way.
The time has come — and it is now a matter of urgency — to switch our attention from the physical to the psychological and to grapple with the crux problem, that greatest of all paradoxes, the riddle of human nature.In the following exceptional video, Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith explains his key 'instinct v's intellect' treatise that unlocks the paradox of the human condition; if the universally accepted ideals are to be cooperative, loving and selfless — they have been accepted by the great civilisations as the basis for their constitutions and laws and by the founders of all the great religions as the basis of their teachings — why are we competitive, aggressive and selfish? What is the reason for our divisive nature?
The breakthrough biological explanation presented is confronting — that cannot be avoided — but it is also liberating.
And that is the purpose of the World Transformation Movement — to help spread the word about this groundbreaking solution to the human condition. To show that this answer dignifies humans in the most remarkable way. It lifts the burden of guilt from humanity. It exonerates us and restores our love of ourselves, our kind and all creation. It allows us to heal the wounds we have inflicted on the planet, on one another and on ourselves. It provides us with the key to freedom from our upset state or condition. It brings us understanding of ourselves.
MUST, MUST WATCH: Craig Conway, the acclaimed British actor, writer, producer and broadcaster — and the founder of WTM North East England Centre — has brought all his skills to bear to produce the ideal introduction to Jeremy Griffith’s explanation of the human condition in this absolutely astonishing, world-changing and world-saving interview with Jeremy. It’s called ‘THE’ Interview because in it Jeremy gives such a concise and accessible summary of his world-saving explanation of the human condition that it’s nothing less than the most important interview of all time!
I highly recommend you read more about the human condition in the chapter in FREEDOM titled 'What exactly is the human condition?', and watch as many videos about the human condition as you can — there is a whole library of fascinating and free videos here.

This book delivers, through biological, human condition-solving science, the much needed and ground-breaking psychological insight into what it means to be a human. It confronts the elephant in the living room, of our contradictory, divisive, upset, potentially horrible, but also empathetic, cooperative and loving behaviour, and the reader who is the subject, gets himself explained and answers to the inner questions of his own and others' goodness, which is the ultimate and fantastic, redemptive value in this book, which has rightly been called by Harry Prosen, a former president of the Canadian Psychiatric Association, for "the book that saves the world." This book saves the world by giving all people understanding of themselves, specifically of our inner upset feelings and behaviour, where this is explained as a consequence of a conflict that broke out between our intellect and instincts in a phase of our evolutionary development, which understanding allows us to look at ourselves and others and our behaviour from an understanding perspective where the misunderstanding around these non-ideal feelings and behaviours, that it would mean that we are evil or worthless, no longer applies. This great crisis in our consciousness, that we may be evil beings, ends with this book, and is completely explained away by biological science which explains the misunderstanding we have had to live with and replaces it with the truth. As Jesus has said, "the truth will set you free" and that situation has never been more applicable than it is now, in this book, specifically through the understanding and validation of our goodness. This book is simply the breakthrough of understanding humanity has been waiting for and it opens, through understanding and not dogma, the real, totally legitimate, world of peace and cooperation that we have been waiting for.
During summer here in Sweden I often spend time at our family’s country house, and enjoy the time there, and especially enjoy being able to understand through the explanation of the human condition what nature means for humans including myself. The other day I watched an episode on SVT’s ‘Vetenskapens Värld’ (The World of Science) about nature’s effect on peoples well-being and ability to regenerate; and how our brain is activated in ‘nature-environments’ compared to how it’s activated in ‘city-environments’. The show was supplying research showing the amygdala’s (the fight, flight–response, or ‘reptilian’ brain) higher activation in the latter environment.
I knew Jeremy clarifies all that in ‘FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition’, so after watching the program I looked up that passage I had thought of, which really is so clarifying of our separation from the natural world and the reasons and meaning of it. It’s explained there that while nature is deeply nurturing of our soul and thus in that respect potentially very regenerative, the human condition has been a story about us having to ‘march into hell for a heavenly cause’ where ‘nature’ and ‘the natural world’ has been part of the, or on the side of, innocence, which has criticised us and which we have had to defy, so just as with innocence generally, our relation to nature has been conflicted, which Jeremy explains our city-living is a result of. You can read that whole passage–which I highly recommend–where all this is explained in Chapter 8:16A, see here.
Having the explanation of the human condition means we can now all look forward to reconnecting with nature!
WTM Sweden now holds fortnightly meetings where people who are interested in the WTM come together to discuss the understanding of the human condition.
Our meeting on Tuesday 19 May was a very special one, with everyone excited to meet a new interested couple who have been exploring the understandings for around 4 months. They have read Transform Your Life, watched videos, are well in to reading FREEDOM and have clearly appreciated the understanding of the breakthrough explanation of the human condition. The meeting was a very joyous occasion and everyone was excited about being part of the group and having the opportunity to catch up.
We talked about the problems in the world and how important this information is to end the suffering on the planet. With that in mind there were plenty of reasons afterwards for having a mini-celebration which is what Ulrik and I had by meeting up and spending a day walking in a beautiful environment and finishing with a coffee together, as you can see here in the picture! The group we have here in Sweden is really just so wonderful and we’re so lucky to have found this and each other.
The Swedish WTM Centers members met a third time to catchup over a wonderful dinner together, with Mette, (far left in the photo) who’s been a member for 2 months but acquainted with the information for over a year, joining in for the first time! It was a truly joyous evening in the spirit of celebration of having this information in our lives and where we delved into certain aspects of the human condition relevant to our lives, such as the topic of ‘men and women’.
Read Olof's answer to the question What is the World Transformation Movement? where he explains "the WTM works to bring [the] biologically based understanding to every human as it has the potential to change our behaviour for the better [as] it deals with the so very important question of if we are good or bad and answers it positively and because of the huge impact that has for our well being it’s a movement with a very special, far and all-reaching potential which I believe can and will save the world."
The Swedish WTM Centre’s first official meeting! Ulrik, Eva, Sandra and Olof met over a very nice dinner to share their experiences of living with this incredible explanation of the human condition and the joy of having found understanding of their lives.
Exciting meeting with founders and members of the other Global WTM Centres, where many topics, including the polarised state of politics, were discussed, and how this can come to an end and a new transformed world begins with the clarifying insight this world-saving understanding now allows us.
WTM Sweden founder Olof visiting members of the Austrian WTM Center, for the second time! It was a wonderful week of fellowship based on our shared appreciation of Jeremy Griffith's understanding of the human condition.
