The common ground in body psychotherapy: A conversation with Michael C. Heller, PhD
Eichhorn, N. (2016). The common ground in body psychotherapy: A conversation with Michael C. Heller, PhD. Somatic Psychotherapy Today 6(1), 108-110.

As man thrived in different regions of the globe, increased in number, establish himself in society with fellow creatures, and finally,
progressed and became civilized, his delights, his needs, increased and became more and more diversified ; he developed increasingly varied ways of relating to the society he lived in, which, among other things, generated increasingly complex his personal interests. His inclinations subdivided endlessly, generated new needs that activate themselves beyond the scope of his awareness. These grew into a huge mass of links that control nearly every part of him, without him being able to perceive it. (Lamarck, Histoire Naturelle des Animaux sans Vertèbres, vol. 1, 1815 : 278). Translated by Marcel Duclos and Michael Heller

Without god or devil, a free man, alone responsible of his acts, masters neither his desires nor his needs
