• “The fact that the United Nations climate conference has been making so little progress suggests that it makes sense to consider other institutions.” — Robert N. Stavins, director on the Harvard Project on Climate Agreements, June 2014

  • “The success of the United States will be measured by its ability to lift the entire world to its standard of living; its failure will be to remain as the most dominant power, mired in its own success.” — John Moser

  • “I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.” — From a letter written by Thomas Jefferson on July 12, 1816, to Samuel Kercheval and inscribed in the Jefferson Memorial

  • “Today we face human-induced problems that are vastly more difficult to resolve and much more unpredictable. Modern humanity’s problems stem from our inevitable biosociophysical development whereby we have created an extremely difficult predicament: humanity’s overwhelming, unremitting, and mandatory socialization.” — John Moser

  • “Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures.” — Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve System’s Board of Governors, 2009

  • “How can one objectively study anything when merely selecting what is to be studied unavoidably demonstrates prima facie bias? In this Third Biosociophysical Era, as I will point out, this task becomes far more difficult as the horrific thundercloud of vested interests descends upon humanity.” — John Moser

  • “Reality seems valueless by comparison to the dreams of fevered imaginations; reality is therefore abandoned.” — Emile Durkheim (1858-1917), the father of the organismal and functional view of society and father of modern sociology

  • “The window dressings that all make us feel good are true distortions. As in the trauma room, we should focus on the ruptured aorta and how to repair it, and not on the injection of the tetanus shot.” — John Moser and the metaphorical reference to humanity’s predicament today

What do health care, climate change, terrorism, illegal immigration, substance abuse, and international geopolitical strife all have in common?

All are problems directly related to the rise of modern humans and the development of what John Moser M.D. calls the Third Biosociophysical Era of Humanity: Human Versus Human.

Although bipedal hominins have existed for over four million years, we lived primarily in small groups with unbounded territory and little need for comprehensive socialization. The problems we faced in our primal past were natural and predictable, because they were based mainly on the inanimate laws of the universe.

Today we face human-induced problems that are vastly more difficult to resolve and much more unpredictable. Modern humanity's problems stem from our inevitable biosociophysical development whereby we have created an extremely difficult predicament: humanity's overwhelming, unremitting, and mandatory socialization.

Due to our massive interconnectedness, declining resources, and the transparent disparity in wealth throughout today's world, we now face the ultimate catastrophe: ourselves.

Moser theorizes that there is a solution: enfranchise all humans and create a world in which there is only "us," forever shedding the concept of "them" and freeing us from a biosociophysical reality that could destroy us all.

Will we ultimately be successful?
