R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz

R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz, in his many works on ancient Egypt, describes a mentality which the AEs called "the intelligence of the heart." This intelligence is non-linear, abstract, and is the opposite of our current rational (black & white) analytical intelligence. I am convinced that this intelligence of the heart is the same as the source of Jaynes' auditory hallucinations. The failure to understand the differences in metality is a major obstacle to understanding the ancient Egyptians. Only by realizing that they didn't think as we do today can we begin to understand their intentions.

Thanks Fisherman. Is there one of his books that you recommend as a particularly good introduction to his work, or as most relevant to bicameral theory?

There is Esoterism & Symbol which is short and will introduce you to his ideas of the innate intelligence that, in my opinion, is the source of Jaynes' auditory hallucinations. He discusses language and consciousness and explains how hieroglyphic language provides the opportunity for depth, richness and connectivity that our conventional, alphabetic language lacks. Imagine visual metaphors. A picture is worth a thousand words.

What is known about the use of precious metal headbands worn during dream states?
