IDK if this topic has been made already so I'll make it. I was wondering how yall felt about the possibility of god simply being the mindset of people thousands of years ago? if you are not familiar with a bicameral mind i'll give it to you in a nutshell. julius jaynes theory of a bicameral mind states that a couple thousand years ago our brain's cognitive functions were divided between one part which spoke (as a master) and one that listened (obeying the commands) before you think "wtf thats just a scitzo" its not because a scitzo would have a hyper-conscious reflective mind. if your also wondering why people aren't like that anyway it may be because of self-awareness (an upgrade of consciousness you could say). which in turn due to the loss of these "gods" literally talking to them they began to PRAY for instruction as they no longer could hear any threw auditory hallucinations. there is much more but i wont expand for now.
