There is no split in human nature or in the human psyche
The standard religious, philosophical and psychological view is that human nature and the human psyche are split between raw goalless survival drives and a pure intellect or higher reality that can even experience a non-material God or truth, which is thought to be far superior to goalless material drives.
The problem with this view is that it is wrong. The "will' or "drive" or "spirit" (I call it the Spirit-Will or Will-Spirit) is material and is within life and seeks survival and reproductive success working along with outside evolution, and it is both a sacred goal as well as the zenith of survival and reproductive success---it seeks the deeper goal of real Godhood.
This means that human nature and the human psyche are not split. Material life has been badly defamed by these "isms" and by this mistaken duality. Human nature and material drives need to be unblocked and retrieved if we are ever to evolve to real Godhood. The dualities within religion, philosophy and psychology have been slowly destroying material life on earth.
