Consciousness and the inner voice

August 31, 2020

The writers of Westworld reference the book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, which proposes that humans until the about 12000 BCE experienced life believing their inner monologues were voices that instructed and admonished them.

Evolutionary biologist Dr Rutger Vos and psychoanalyst Dr Noga Ariel-Galor discuss representations of consciousness in science and pop culture. Featuring guest appearances of Homeric heroes, Woody Allen, The prophets of the Bible, The Byrds, Noam Chomsky, Anna and Elza, Donald Rumsfeld, Debussy, Josh Wink, and Petra the African Gray.
