"Pursuing the bicameral mind, Jaynes focuses on
the corpus callosum, the major inter-connector
between the brain's hemispheres. In human
brains the corpus callosum can be likened to a
small bridge, a band of transverse fibers, only
slightly more than one-eighth of an inch in
diameter. This bridge "collects from most of the
temporal lobe cortex but particularly the middle
gyrus of the temporal lobe in Wernicke's area."
And it was this bridge that served as the means
by which the "gods" who dwelled in one
hemisphere of the human brain were able to
give "directions" to the other hemisphere. It is
like thinking of the "two hemispheres of the
brain almost as two individuals." Hence the
bicameral mind! [Ibid, p. 117]"

www.the-philosopher.co.uk/plato-and-bicameral-brain.htm

"The challenge is to resist the impulse to believe
that one way of thinking is superior to the other.
As Leo Straus says in What is Political
Philosophy, human beings:
… are constantly attracted and deluded by
two opposite charms: the charm of
competence which is engendered by
mathematics and everything akin to
mathematics, and the charm of humble
awe, which is engendered by meditation on
the human soul and its experiences.
Philosophy is characterized by a gentle, if
firm, refusal to succumb to either charm.
What Plato expressed so long ago with his
allegory of the cave was not, as he imagined,
about another world, but rather about the way
we desire to think about our human experience.
Not only do we desire to know the forms so we
might organize our understanding correctly, but
we want them to be the kind of clear and
distinct ideas we find in geometry.
In the modern period, Descartes convinced us
that such a Platonic ambition was the way to
solve all of our problems and consequently the
modern mind came to associate the analytic
thinking of the left-brain as synonymous with
reason itself.
Consequently, no contradictory, ambiguous, or
vague ideas could claim to be true. With such
thinking, there were no mysteries, only puzzles
that in time we would solve through a single
mode of right thinking. Modern science told us
that they had discovered a singular right way of
thinking that if followed would eventually bring
us to a complete understanding of the world
and our place within it.
What we now understand much better than
both Plato and Descartes is that we are hard-
wired to reason in two very different and
distinct ways: we can think analytically in order
to get clear and distinct ideas and thereby
eliminate all ambiguity and vagueness, or we
can leave our experience whole and bear the
paradoxes and contradictions that are so much
a part of that actual experience. Plato might
have imagined these as two different worlds but
we now have the benefit of another way to
interpret them - not as two universes that never
interact but two distinct ways to think about the
same world.
Furthermore, since the human brain provides us
with two very distinct ways of interpreting our
experience, there should not be a question of
which is superior to the other. Both are part of
our natural capacity and we should not have to
choose one to the exclusion of the other. The
trick is to have a whole mind that is capable of
both modes of reason; that is, that we can think
analytically, do mathematics, and create
computers and bridges, but we can also think in
ways that bear the contradictions, vagueness,
and ambiguity that is so much a part of our
actual experience."

Love and Terror Management:
". These authors argue that relationship-seeking is a largely independent defense against existential angst, functioning without the assistance of either the self-esteem or worldview defense explanations (Mikulincer, et al., 2003)."
