When a person has a correct analog (that integrates with reality), it will act as a tool to help a person automatize what he or she needs to do in order to survive or thrive in his or her environment.

Re: Bicameral Mind As A Dynamic

Well, to correct this up a bit:

Automatizing reactions is natural for people to do simply to conserve energy. We spend most of our time recalling information instead of constantly being aware. So the correct statement is being consciously aware is not being automatic.

Re: Bicameral Mind As A Dynamic

I suspect from your questions that you haven't read JJ's work. I have read the book.

I understood that bicameral mind...
