My Research

One day an eagle laid an egg in a chicken coop. The egg hatched and the newborn eagle learned from his peers how to live like a chicken. Life was great – except for a yearning that made him seek. But none of what he found truly satisfied his yearning.

Would it help if someone told him that he is not a chicken, but an eagle?

No, this would not help. The eagle has learned to “be” a chicken; he carries a “chicken program” that tells him how to behave under which circumstances. He feels safe and comfortable “being” a chicken – except for the yearning.

Would it help if the eagle attended an eagle seminar in order to learn to be an eagle?

No, this would not help either. Learning to be an eagle would install an eagle program that would overlay the chicken program. Then he would be an eagle who believes he is a chicken who has learned some eagle behavior, which would be even more confusing than continuing to live as a chicken.

The only way for the eagle to be what he truly is, is to free himself from the chicken program.

Why did the eagle’s mother lay her egg in a chicken coop in the first place?

Because she also lives in the chicken coop and believes that she is a chicken. In fact, ALL birds in the chicken coop are eagles who believe that they are chickens. And this has been so for 200 thousand years.

I call this The OTHER Story of the Eagle in the Chicken Coop. It is a metaphor for us humans. Our human chicken program brings forth about 99% of our actions, feelings, and thoughts. It limits us significantly.

This is why behavioral science denotes humans a “self-domesticated species.”

For more than eight years I research the mechanisms behind this and how one can get free from these programs.

I documented part of my findings in my books “Consciousness: Its Nature, Purpose, and How to Use It” and “Curiosity: The Mental Hunger of Humans.”

More in my articles, books, and videos.


You can free yourself from your programs by applying a method that I developed and applied to myself during the last 5+ years.

I offer coaching for learning and applying this method.

I provide you with personalized exercises for maximum progress.

Coaching is personal or via Skype.

About Me

bernhard kutzler

Dr Bernhard Kutzler

Researcher, Author, Speaker, Coach

I was a successful mathematician and businessman for more than twenty years.

2009 I closed my business. I began to research human behavior and started to work as a mindset coach, hand analyst, and nutritionist.

2011 I started an in-depth exploration of the programs that control us.

2014 I said farewell to family and friends, sold my apartment, and started to live without social interaction. (Using the words of the above metaphor: I left the human chicken coop.) I focused on my research of our programs and how one can get free from them.

2019 I started to make my findings available via books, articles, videos, and coachings.

I made fascinating discoveries, some of which I documented in the books “Consciousness: Its Nature, Purpose, and How to Use It” and “Curiosity: The Mental Hunger of Humans.”

My Research goes on. I’ve dedicated my life to exploring this.

I love researching and writing. I share my findings and experiences in my books, in my articles, and on my YouTube channel.
