About the Book

WE DO NOT MOVE UNLESS WE ARE BOTHERED: The most brilliant discovery of human nature, every single human motion relates to a bothersome. We remain immobile if nothing bothers us.

Imagine sitting on the sofa in your living room, completely comfortable with nothing at all to bother you. You are not hungry, thirsty, or tired. You are not cold, hot, or sick. The telephone doesn't ring. You are not worried about bills coming due or your job or business. You don't have to do laundry or any other chores. You are not bored or sleepy. You are not curious about anything, and absolutely nothing makes you uncomfortable, worried, excited, or upset. You are simply and continuously calm and comfortable sitting on that sofa. Do you make any movement?

WHAT HAPPENS IN OUR MINDS WHEN WE INITIATE MOTIONS? We perform motions based on the potential outcomes of our joy and suffering. There is constant evaluation of joy and suffering in our brains and we perform motions where there is more enjoyment and less suffering. In other words, the outcomes of our wants and fears determine our motions.

WHAT WOULD BE THE FIRST MOTION OF OUR BODIES IF NOTHING BOTHERED US?Our actions depend on our balance. We perform motions only when we lose our balance and we remain immobile when we are in balance; that's how our system works.
When you see a beggar, you lose your balance (comfort) and you give him or her a dollar to regain your balance. Someone gives you a flower and you say thank you to regain you balance. How would you feel if you didn't say thank you when someone gave you a flower? Obviously, you would feel uncomfortable and imbalanced.


Further experiment proves: Actions and reactions are chemical, not psychological. Feelings constitute a certain chemical process in the brain and there is nothing beyond our bodies such as emotions. Depression, anxiety, mania-and other so-called mental disorders-are the result of chemical imbalance, so what does that say about human nature? Behaviology, a revolutionary new branch of science analyzing human behavior, suggests that the potential outcome of our wants and fears determines our motions.

Rafii lays out seven facts about human motions:

  1. We always want to be comfortable (balanced).
  2. We move only when we lose our balance.
  3. Loss of balance always creates want in us.
  4. Every motion is associated with suffering and joy.
  5. More suffering leads to more joy.
  6. The outcome of want and fear determines motion.
  7. Personality, physicality, and mental and environmental conditions determine desires and fears, and we move based on the sum of the outcomes of those desires and fears.
