The World Transformation Movement Whangarei Centre was established by Doug Gibbs in appreciation of Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith’s world-transforming scientific explanation of the human condition, and the extraordinary insight it brings to human behaviour—see

The Whangarei Centre is the second WTM Centre to open in New Zealand and feels privileged to be a part of the WTM’s ever-expanding global network of support!

“The information in FREEDOM and the work of the WTM is providing the answers—it’s actually providing the cure for everything that is destroying our planet.” Doug Gibbs

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’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!

  • FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition

    FREEDOM is the definitive presentation of the biological explanation of the human condition needed for the complete understanding of human behaviour and the ultimate amelioration of all the underlying psychosis in human life.

“Having read the understanding of the human condition in FREEDOM means all the issues that come to me in a counselling situation or through watching the world around me—questions as to why we’re behaving the way we do—have been answered.” Doug Gibbs

“I don’t care what question you have, this book will answer it.” Goodreads review of FREEDOM

“Jeremy Griffith is a hero! Thank you so much. FREEDOM has been great, it has helped my children understand the contradictions in the world and themselves better, and helped them feel more secure and less fearful. I recommend this book highly to all mothers.” Amazon review of FREEDOM



Alongside the original WTM Centre in Sydney, Australia, World Transformation Movement Centres are being established around the world to help bring to everyone the now desperately needed all-relieving and all-explaining biological understanding of the underlying issue in all of human life of our troubled human condition.

Resignation (see Freedom Essay 30) and the struggles children and adolescents grapple with as they try to make sense of adult behaviour or the world around them, have been challenging yet wonderful learning over the past month.

I recently caught up with Greg who is starting a WTM centre in the Bay of Islands where we discussed this period in our own lives where we just could not get any answers from adults.

This period could be, and often was, distressing, frustrating and bewildering. Like most people we mostly gave up and tried to make our way the best we could. However both of us kept wondering if there were any real answers.

A significant proportion, if not all, of the issues I come across in my work with young people can be tracked back to adult behaviour. Having an awareness that all adults are heroes of humanity’s search for understanding is vital when faced with the effects of such behaviour on children.

Stumbling across the work of Jeremy Griffith has been a revelation and now I am being asked many of the same questions I asked by some of the young lads who come to see me in my role as a counsellor. It has been of great relief in two ways. Firstly they have finally found an adult who is willing to discuss these profound questions, and secondly, that I have at least some way of giving them some hope that there are answers.

I have to thank the WTM and Jeremy for this gift. The Freedom Essay on Resignation has become a cornerstone of understanding the dilemmas young people are dealing with as they approach adulthood.

I recently travelled up to the Bay of Islands to cycle on the Twin Coast Cycle Trail and catch up with Greg Bray who has been studying the information in FREEDOM. We discovered that we have both come across this wonderful life changing work of Jeremy Griffith’s after searching for answers for much of our lives.

Greg will be starting a WTM Centre in the Bay of Islands which, along with the original centre in Auckland, and the new Wellington Centre, gives us four in New Zealand.

If I ever need motivation to support the work of the WTM I only need to go to work each day where I sit face to face with depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, self-harm, bullying and the like. As more and more people come to understand that the Human Condition has been solved, less and less children will have to resign and live under the duress of this condition and no longer will I feel like a Catcher in the Rye as written by J. D Salinger.

The following passage is taken from Freedom Essay 30, in which Jeremy explains how The Catcher in The Rye is about the dream of the human condition one day being solved: “Appreciably then, in what forms the key passage in The Catcher in the Rye (indeed, it provides the meaning behind the book’s enigmatic title), Salinger has Holden Caulfield dreaming of a time when this absolute horror, indeed obscenity, of Resignation will no longer have to form an unavoidable part of human life: ‘I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody’s around — nobody big, I mean — except me. And I’m standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff — I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That’s all I do all day. I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it’s crazy, but that’s the only thing I’d really like to be.’”
