Re: Wise gods?

There are ways things can be true even when they are not measurable in the Left-Brain sense (see Gregory Bateson--originally a rigorously-trained natural scientist and logician--on the definitions of Mind). Since the LB can only deal with linear "reasoning" forms of knowledge it cannot access those ...

Re: Wise gods?

The more I read and ponder, the more I suspect that the Right Brain (RB) is processing--receiving and transmitting as well--on a faster (but resonant, i.e., harmonically related) frequency in relation to the Left Brain (LB). This finer RB frequency could actually have access to information that trea...

Jung's Work and Jaynes'

It is stunning to look at Jaynes' and Jung's work through each other's lenses as well. The Right Brain becomes The Feminine, and the emergence of Jaynes' introspective consciousness in the last 3000 or so years becomes the Masculine declaring its independence from the Mother, to form what we could c...

Gurdjieff's Work in Relation to Jaynes'

I'm surprised no one has brought this up yet. Gurdjieff (in his own weird stuff and more accessibly in Ouspensky's work) discussed in depth the various "I"s that intersect to form what we call human being. He insisted that humans possess definite, perceptible and (most importantly) functional distin...

Bateson's Definition of Mind Extremely Useful Here...

I studied with Gregory Bateson in the Seventies. I think it would behoove many Jaynes scholars to review his definition of "mind" (best book for this is Mind and Nature: A Necessary Unity ). It would appear that Bateson and Jaynes had no contact--pity, because they seem to have been reaching out tow...
