That the voice of God was heard by one side of the bicameral mind listening to the other side. And he says that social, cultural and technological developments led to the breakdown of the bicameral mind, and so, for most of us, the voice of God fell silent.

    But still this vestigial capacity remains with us in schizophrenia where we hear voices, and sometimes the voice of God.

    This has interesting implications in that the Fall from the Garden of Eden may be synonymous with the voice of God falling silent.
    You know that Jaynes theory isnt even popular with prominant anti-theists anymore right?

    Schizophrenia, so far as I know, is full spectrum delusions, not simply imagined voices or intrusive thoughts which do not appear to the person experiencing them to be their own, that's only one minor observation about what is wrong with what you wrote.

    Nope, I do not.

    Look down, Aquarelle, and see the four pawed angels at your feet, not to mention your guardian angel, your insignificant other (IO).

    I dont need an introduction as I've read all his books, I was introduced to him by another author, a psychologist who wrote in the same vane as Wilhelm Reich and it was in a book called The Fear of Living or something like that.

    Jaynes is just one in a long line of simplistic and reductive reckonings of "its all in the mind, and its a delusion" school of thinking.
