At some point, Ford talks about the bicameral mind. This is a reference to Julian Jaynes' groundbreaking book, "The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind." Jaynes' basic idea was that the corpus callosum, that bundle of nerves that ties together the two hemispheres of the brain, is a recent development. Prior to that, the only way the logical, rational side of the brain could communicate with the emotional, instinctive side was through auditory hallucinations, which primitive peoples interpreted as the 'voices of the gods'. The one of many examples given is of "The Iliad". Characters in the Iliad don't have any inner dialogues with themselves, there is no planning or foresight, and all their actions are undertaken from instructions given to them by the gods. As society and its situations became too complicated for this process to be effective, the corpus callosum developed and true self-consciousness arose. See more
