Some truth about human intentions

When Sigmund Freud postulated that no mortal could keep a secret, that the betrayal of our real intentions oozes out of our every pore, it was a new vision of human behavior. Suddenly, you weren’t just doing something good or bad. With Freud, it was now possible to say, “You think you’re doing something good. But you’re not.” Because much, if not most, of human activity is being driven by something down deep that we don’t have much understanding of.

Until now.

Today on Thinking With Somebody Else’s Head, we’ll explore the latest research into the psychological roots of disease with Dr. Claudia Pacheco, psychoanalyst at the International Society of Analytical Trilogy and founder of the STOP the Destruction of the World Association.

Dr. Pacheco will offer us an incisive look into the latest discoveries in the science of psychopathology being put forward by the extraordinary psychoanalyst and social scientist, Norberto Keppe, with whom Dr. Pacheco has worked closely for the past 30 years.

The inescapable fact arising out of their research and clinical analysis is that, shockingly, human intentions are not good. This, of course, flies in the face of much of what we’ve learned from numerous big brains throughout history, but that doesn’t take away its validity. And it certainly explains why, in the middle of the largest media explosion in human history where more information is available about our destructive ways and the need to change them than ever before, we are continuing to destroy the planet at a skyrocketing pace.

Let’s learn a little more.
