I believe that Jaynes was correct in describing idolatry as involving hallucinations; nonetheless I believe that as you go further back in time the usage of the right-side analog to the speech center involved more than hallucinations.
Discussion of Julian Jaynes's second hypothesis - that before the development of consciousness, humans operated under a previous mentality called the bicameral mind.
