Why this book?

Because we need a whole new way to understand and

address our overlooked specific needs.


Each chapter introduces you to a new way to relate to your own needs, and to the needs of others.


Need creation

Needs exist as objective facts.

Your needs exist as a series

of naturally intersecting cycles.

chapter highlights


Need conveyance

Emotions only exist to convey your needs.

Your subjective emotions express

your objective needs.


Need experience

Your outward political views report your inward tension between psychosocial needs.

Your political views express

your objective priority of needs.


Need easement

The less your needs resolve,

the more pain you will be in.

Your unresolved needs can leave

you in a zone of mounting pain.



The less your needs can resolve,

the less you can function in life.

Your need to fully function

is the basis for all your other needs.



The less your needs resolve,

the more biased your thinking.

Your needs drive what you find

important to know in life.

About the author, Steph Turner

"I used to publicly present as transgender. But rarely anymore. I transcend more than gender. Let me be upfront with you. I consider myself a 'transspirit' who is spiritually compelled to transcend cultural divisions that prevent us from fully resolving needs. I am compelled to connect deeply with the inner spirit of being, which leaves me outside of what most regard as morally normal. Consequently, I have been an outcast my whole life. This includes being falsely accused and wrongly convicted of a terrible sex crime that never occurred, despite being demisexual & trans. The new Michigan Conviction Integity Unit is currently reviewing my compelling case of actual innocence. My next book dives deeper into this story of how I endured such injustice. The more challenged I am, the more a gift of wisdom flows through me to address how we experience our needs. This book is a gift to you through me from a Source beyond easy comprehension. May this new way of seeing life help you as it has uplifted me. May you find more love in life!"
