What is Man's Most Important Psychological Need?

The following questions will be asked of the group at this Meetup:

>For the purposes of this discussion, what do we mean by "psychological need"?

>Why is it important to ask the question of What is Man's Most Important Psychological Need?

>How do emotions and logic help us to understand man's most important psychological need?

>How is the correlation between ethics and man's most important need?

>What is the political ramifications (i.e., "rights") of man's most important psychological need?

>How is art and media affected by man's most important psychological need?

>Conclusion: After all is said and done, What is Man's Most Important Psychological Need?

This Meetup is at a quiet restaurant, and no purchase is necessary. (Though, please keep in mind that the owner is providing a FREE, quiet venue for us to conduct our Meetup and a small purchase on your part as a show of thanks is greatly appreciated.) Socializing will begin at 6:15pm, the discussion around 6:45pm, and the conclusion at approximately 9pm.

NOTE: At the beginning of the discussion portion of the Meetup, the moderator will ask for cooperation (i.e. being on one's best behavior and showing the utmost respect for others) from all participants regarding member conduct during the discussion. Specifically, when the moderator asks a question of the group (see this Meetup's questions listed above), it is for purpose of moving the discussion in that particular direction to 1)have a well-rounded conversation that adequately covers the topic in the time available, and 2)to help facilitate each member arriving at some type of answer/conclusion, based on the discussion, by the end of the Meetup. Past experience has shown that when members ignore the moderator's question(s) to go off on their own soapboxes, it leads to a purposeless, rudderless, conversational free-for-all; which greatly reduces the quality of the discussion for all participants. (Members who have an agenda for how the Meetup will progress (or not progress), including introducing [or continually re-introducing] frequent tangents that have nothing to do any aspect of the topic at hand [which are introduced via the questions posited above] are free to schedule their own Meetups on this website.)

A member's attendance at this Meetup is a de facto agreement (on his/her part) that the discussion will follow the simple format outlined above, via each question introduced at the time designated by the moderator. After a question is asked, the conversation will be a free-flowing one focused around that particular question. (Though, please keep your answers short and give others a chance to speak. Also, please no side conversations while others are trying to speak - it's very distracting...) Other ancillary questions may come up during the course of the discussion that we will talk about, but the group will primarily focus its attention on the questions asked above; as well as try to tie together how each question is correlated with one another.

    Sorry everyone - I had a heck of a day and forgot about this until it was too late to change my RSVP.

    We discussed many psychological needs of man, including self-love, friendship, spirituality, consciousness, freedom, and autonomy. Thanks everyone for your participation!
