Every human born anywhere in the world is born with the same basic gearbox. When we’re first born, that gearbox is a fairly simple one. It has one gear. A gear that Graves designated ‘AN’, and which others have called ‘Survival’ or ‘Beige’. There are many similarities between this Gear and the base level in Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. A newborn baby is thinking in ‘Survival’ mode. So, sadly, is a person suffering from a degenerative disease. So is someone suffering from shell-shock.
