It looks like the woman tragically killed this week at the capitol was having bicameral-like hallucinations.

Miriam Carey had been hallucinating and thought that President Obama was communicating with her.

It's interesting that voice-hearers often hallucinate religious and political leaders, which fits with Jaynes's theory.
