Basic need gratification commences with basic shelter, food, sustenance, water, air, soil, heat in its vagaries of moderation. If and when needs are not satisfied they return with increased intensity, thirst is a classic model for this.
- Due to the normality of need gratification Polar bears are seldom seen at the Equator, whilst wales, birds, fish, and eels migrate seasonally.
- People may migrate seasonally for their annual holiday, some people actually immigrate and settle permanently.
- Australian Aborigines used the simply word of Walk About.
Maslow's hierarchy of needs is often depicted as a pyramid consisting of five levels:
The four lower levels are grouped together as deficiency needs associated with physiological needs, while the top level is termed growth needs associated with psychological needs. While deficiency needs must be met, growth needs are the need for personal growth.
Basically the concept is that the higher needs in this hierarchy only come into focus once all the needs that are lower down in the pyramid are mainly or entirely satisfied. Once an individual has moved past a level, those needs will no longer be prioritized.
However, if a lower set of needs is continually unmet for an extended period of time, the individual will temporarily re-prioritize those needs - dropping down to that level until those lower needs are reasonably satisfied again. Innate growth forces constantly create upward movement in the hierarchy unless basic needs remain unmet indefinitely.
The first four layers of the pyramid are what Maslow called "deficiency needs" or "D-needs:" the individual does not feel anything if they are met, but feels anxious if they are not met. The deficiency needs (also termed 'D needs' by Maslow) are:
The physiological needs of the organism, those enabling homeostasis, take first precedence. These consist mainly of:
If some needs are not fulfilled, a human's physiological needs take the highest priority. Physiological needs can control thoughts and behaviours, and can cause people to feel sickness, pain, and discomfort. More
So following on from yesterdays post where I alluded to the situation that many many people in Australia and the world have been exposed to progressively dire situations during the recent years as the corporate and financial markets have run a wild feeding frenzy gobbling up each other in an insatiable unsustainable fashion. Now we are beginning to hear of mortgage finance collapses from USA, this will have confidence ramifications to the Australian market. Once upon a time it was said that if the Americans caught a cold we contracted pneumonia, I certainly do not will that onto any readers.
Innocent citizens, workers and their associates have been severely traumatised by the "Collateral" damage of this world warring for domination and control through the financial Rag Dolls of make believe, all huff and no puff as they thrask away looking goood with empty hats.
Such domination empowers resistance in the human body. When any infection takes hold we have white blood cells to fight that infection of any foreign body therefore it should come as no surprise that the military resistance in Iraq is increasing its power. This is a natural consequence of invasion, of course then we are subject to further virial outbreaks across the body of mankind as we experience with the recent Glasgow and London bombings, deaths and recent kidnapping.
For the greater body of man the answers are all within our own mindful indelibly written within our own individual loving consciousness.
That's all for now folks, off to my Pond
Love Peace and Blessings phDuck
