The Human Needs by Valentin Matcas Summary
You have to follow the rules in the world as you follow your needs, but can you follow them both? You may smile slightly here, but what exactly is going on? Why should you encounter problems as a living human in a human world? What are your needs exactly and what do they make you do? Is everything that you know about the human needs pertinent enough to assure a successful life? Because everybody ends up in dreadful situations at times, struggling with various problems, it happens to you and to those around too, so why? Why should you have to fail in life, at least partially, as you follow the rules and the human needs both? And since this happens to everybody, can humans actually be at fault? Because, if humans themselves are wrong, incapable or compromised, through their own natural needs and feelings, then what exactly do laws and authorities seek in the world if they do not serve humans, society, needs, and fulfillment the most? Because now it seems that authorities hold you responsible for everything that life sends your way, ending up judging life through you, and punishing you dreadfully. And many times it is done on purpose, to get to you or to get you out of the way. Since everyone gets involved when you fail, and you have to be highly capable to manage both life and society today. And to make matters worse, you cannot find to learn anything relevant in this topic. And now when you think about it, you see how the human experience in this world is marked by the human needs and feelings on one side, and by people’s ignorance about the human needs and feelings on the other. Yet this is the case not only with the human needs, but with the human reasoning, meaning, life, condition, society, interaction, cognition, and so on. It is a persistent, awkward circumstance, it is what destroys you at once or what develops you beyond your expectations, and maybe this is why people seek to learn the truth about themselves, their needs and feelings, and their place in life and in the world. And how exactly do you study the world in its entire complexity with you in it in order to know more about your actual human needs? Life and the wider world are extraordinarily complex indeed, yet from your own perspective, everything starts with you, with your own life and social interaction, and mostly with your needs. Followed by your feelings, reasoning, development, cognition, behavior, lifestyle, meaning, condition, reality, and so on, since you cannot understand one without understanding the rest. And you may start with your needs and feelings since you have them in you, and you can feel them too. Throughout this book, we study the comprehensive human existence very closely, as it starts with the human needs and with the human intelligences sending you your needs. We identify and analyze feelings, fulfillment, behavior, reasoning, and meaning, we seek relevant examples, and we apply our reasoning further to understand society, life, and the entire world. If you seek to learn more about yourself and your needs and feelings, this book is for you.
