The Jan/Feb 2017 Smithsonian Magazine Cover Story is 'The Golden Warrior': A 3,500 Year Old Tomb Exposes The Roots of Western Civilization.

The tagline caught my eye and the tomb is linked to Bronze Age Mycenaeans in the time of the Iliad. Rings with depictions of goddesses got me thinking about sequencing and programming of the bicameral mind. The initial, most powerful voice would be one's mother, would it not? That would give rise to the notion of the voice being a goddess.

It's an interesting point. Judith Weissman discusses this in her Introduction to Of Two Minds: Poets Who Hear Voices, which we've reprinted in Gods, Voices, and the Bicameral Mind.

She had a strong interest in these related areas of language, voice-hearing, ancient history, patriarchy, etc.
