From observation it has been known that all newly born babies comes out crying and from further investigation what they need is comfort and food.
He said there are five inborn hunger. First is inclusion and acknowledgment, intimacy and trusted companionship, food and comfort, answer and information and lastly continuity and certainty. Human beings coming to this word want to be included and recognized, with the inborn hunger it controls every things we do.
From birth we are forcible expelled from the uterus into a very strange world where food and comfort are no longer as they were inside the uterus. He said many would like to go back into the uterus but unfortunately he said we can go back because he said we have to attend to the in born hunger to attend to. Finally he said as human we should have integrity and discipline.
