    I very much agree!

    There is potential deep richness available in linking up Iain McGilchrist’s approach to the division of ‘how-to’ strategies between the two hemispheres, and the ‘Depth Psychology’ of CG Jung, which, as Jung noted in a comment made at his 80th birthday party, had been entirely anticipated in the writing of the ‘Maggid of Mezerich‘, Rabbi Dov Baer, the leading student of the founder of Hasidism, the Baal Shem Tov ( the ‘Master of the Good Name’ ). This connection is also of great interest in linking up Iain’s ideas with the ideas of Jung’s leading student, Erich Neumann, regarding the origins and history of ‘consciousness’ (or what I would prefer to call human species-specific reflective egoic ‘meta-consciousness‘ following the suggestion of Bernardo Kastrup and consistent with the ideas of Donald Hoffman–ie. in distinguishing between the ‘meta-consciousness‘ of the distinctly human ‘egoic‘ inner speech that is specific to the evolved human interface with reality conferred by biological evolution as an optimized, but NON-VERIDICAL means of sustaining embodied survival, and the primary, elemental, experiential consciousness of the hidden relational matrix that constitutes the reality of possibility, which is also consistent with what quantum physicist, Ruth E Kastner calls the ‘Q<b class=””>uantum Substratum‘ out of which the quantized spacetime aspect of the species-specific human interface emerges ( see: ).
