Re: Temporary Bicamerality

Hi Rollo, Nice to hear. Memes as ‘the cultural counterpart of genes’ seem to speak of momentum, inertia of vested interest, belief in the larger systems – law, government, internet, and economy. Free enterprise/capitalism thrives on consumption – and so increasing population – for profits....

Re: Temporary Bicamerality

Well put, indeed. Thus far science has taken life to be no more than an accident of nature. Today, however, it appears that life is nothing less than an integral evolving agency of the larger cosmic creativity; an agency with choices to make that will sustain or defeat the process (and our species) ...

Re: Temporary Bicamerality

Further to my above discussion, in a universe naturally self-organizing (Kauffman) and with the emergence of subjective conscious mind (Jaynes) having essentially boundless creative potential as the integral agent of that cosmic process, and where ‘big bang’ simply represents the emergence of ti...

Re: Temporary Bicamerality

Hi Kaori, Bicamerality isn’t just a psychological status, but denotes brain structure. Earliest bicamerality (as a brain structure) appeared some 365 m years ago in the Hylonomus, long before man and language.

Re: Temporary Bicamerality

Hi Kaori, No expert here, but OC has been food for years of thought. Bicamerality would seem to have existed as the early state prior to language and its utility for extending social organization/cooperation.
