Chet Shupe Pens Philosophical Book Helping Modern Humans Reconnect to Their Inborn Wisdom

By: WebWire

Author Chet Shupe explains that pre-civilized cultures were human-centered, until the advent of civilization totally upended the natural human way of life. In our civilized world, the value of technology by far overshadows our human needs, as feeling beings. In essence, our souls are homeless, without the close relationships of mutual trust, in which our pre-civilized ancestors lived in contentment, despite the dangers inherent to the undeveloped world.

Shupe's thought-provoking philosophical book, “Rediscovering the Wisdom of Human Nature: How Civilization Destroys Happiness” (Spiritual Freedom Press; 2020), goes beyond the boundaries of philosophy, psychology, religion, and self-help, to reveal the causes that have made our lives—as pawns in mass civilizations—incompatible with our nature, as human beings. He asks, and answers, the question: Why must the vast majority of modern humans suffer ever-increasing feelings of emotional isolation and anxiety, in the face of increasing societal ills, governmental failures, economic instability, international conflict, and habitat destruction?

Chet Shupe's book, “Rediscovering the Wisdom of Human Nature: How Civilization Destroys Happiness,” is a clarion call, to modern humans, to free themselves from the shackles of institutionalized life, and bring themselves out of emotional isolation, so they can again feel and behave, as the natural humans we are.

Author Bio

Chet Shupe is an electronics engineer who suffered from severe Attention Deficit Disorder for a good part of his life. After years of depression and feeling bewildered by the world around him, he was finally diagnosed at age 43, and after beginning treatment with Ritalin, life suddenly made sense.

Shupe emerged from ADD with a unique perspective on the human condition. His engineer's mind forced him to ask basic questions about the brain's purpose, how the mind is organized, why feelings exist, the origin of good and evil, the true dynamics of every relationship, and how all of this relates to our happiness and to the wellbeing of humanity. For years he's pursued the answers to these questions with passion and conviction, digging deep into the intricacies of the modern social contract to question how well it serves us both individually and collectively.

As a scientist, he bolsters every conclusion with logical and compelling examples. As a person of feeling and intuition, he expresses his hopes for humanity with genuine compassion and sincerity. As a whistleblower to the world, he speaks with urgency about the need to rediscover our connections with our own Nature, if we are ever again to experience the contentment of sisterhood and brotherhood that is our natural heritage.
