This edition tends to focus on the personal rather than the broad social dimensions of what we call the Primal Process. In essence, the ‘Primal Process’ is nothing other than a meta process that governs much of life, a process whose nature is well described by a theory first developed by Hifzija Bajramovic which addresses the question of victimization. Naturally, none of us likes to think of ourselves as ‘victims’. Instead, we prefer to think of ourselves as powerful agents in charge of our own lives. While this is certainly true to an extent, it is equally true that because we all took birth in human bodies, and our bodies have their own developmental history laden with biological processes that were set in motion a billion years ago, we are also at the mercy of these processes. Try holding your breath for five minutes, and you’ll quickly understand what we mean. In this sense, the life process itself isn’t just our home, it is also the process that has put all life on Earth on a trajectory of experience over which we have a limited range of control. Yet, when we understand how these underlying processes have come to shape the way we think, and by extension, behave, we not only acquire a great ability to
navigate life’s endless stream of challenges. We can help chart a course that can prevent us from sinking beneath this stream’s sometimes merciless currents. This process is the basis of both the Primal Mind and the Primal Games that emerge out of it.
