My research: What is the highest potential of a human?

The following story describes the framework of my research:

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

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

No, this would not help. The eagle has learned to “be” a chicken; it carries a “chicken program” that tells it how to behave under which circumstances. It 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 it would be an eagle who believes it is a chicken who has learned to behave like an eagle, which would be even more confusing than continuing to live as a chicken.

The only way for the eagle to be what it truly is, is to free itself 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 tens of thousands of years.

I call this The OTHER Story of the Eagle in the Chicken Coop.

This story is a metaphor for us humans. We follow a “human chicken program”, which brings forth most of our behaviors and thoughts. This program is a prison for our mind. It is the box we are in. I call it the human box. I reflect on this in my blog post “Who Chose My Breakfast This Morning?” and in the first chapter of my book “Being Free: Get Out of the Box – The Method With 99 Exercises.”

Since 2011, I am exploring the human box and how to get out of it in order to live up to the highest potential.

I documented many of my findings and experiences in my books
“Consciousness: Its Nature, Purpose, and How to Use It,”
“Curiosity: The Mental Hunger of Humans,” and
“Being Free: Get Out of the Box – The Method with 99 Exercises.”
I also talk about them in my blog and on my video channel.

About Me (Bernhard Kutzler)

b kutzler

I am a researcher and author with a doctorate in mathematics and trainings in subjects ranging from psychology to nutrition to Ayurveda. I was a successful scientist, teacher, and business leader for over twenty years before I left this career to research human behavior. Since 2011, I am exploring how we can live up to our highest potential. For this, I explore the programs that control us (the “human box”) and how to free ourselves from them. This exploration has a beginning, but no end. I am “on the path” and have made this my life’s theme.

I documented some of my findings and experiences in the books “Consciousness: Its Nature, Purpose, and How to Use It,”, “Curiosity: The Mental Hunger of Humans,” and “Being Free: Get Out of the Box – The Method with 99 Exercises.” I also talk about them in my blog and on my two YouTube channels.
