The solution to your wish fulfilment

metaphor or meme?: What is a meme? see HERE. Or HERE.

iwishihad uses metaphor in lieu of meme deliberately because both are metaphors and (perhaps?) memes and link to bicamerality, but no-one has as yet appeared to construct this link. The new concept of 'meme' is, in the metaphorical sense, itself a meme but in being so, infects minds by it's memetic 'property' but is really only a 'memetaphor' infecting the little metaphor (or meme) of one's "I'. - ("I" = me - me ?????)

'Bicameral' means 'Two Chambers'. Governments have 'Two Chambers';
House of Lords; House of Representatives; etc.
Is this coincidental?
Maybe a subconscious 'heritage' from 3000 years ago?
Perhaps, the metaphor, 'Twin Towers' would make more sense if the perpetrators were receiving 'orders' from their right-lobe, 'God'?


Bicameral Man: "It should be understood that there was a time when nobody, even philosophers, were asking questions about the nature of the mind. Before the 9th century BCE, questions about mental life weren't discussed by philosophers, at least in the West. Julian Jaynes, in his very provocative book, The Origins of Consciousness in the Breakdownof the Bicameral Mind (1976), notes that there are very few references to consciousness or mental life in early literature (e.g., the Iliad and the Odyssey). To the extent that characters in this ancient literature had thoughts, feelings, and desires, these were not mental acts of the person, but rather things put into his or her mind by the gods."

"Around the 6th century BCE, things began to change. Characteristicof the philosophical tradition of the "Golden Age" of Greece (Socrates, Plato, Aristotle) was the recognition that people's thoughts, feelings, and desires were their own. This is the origin of consciousness to which Jaynes refers -- the point at which people became aware of the contents of their own minds as such, and also aware of their ability to control these contents themselves. Similar things were happening in Eastern philosophy, by the way: for example, Buddha taught that ideas came from sensations, while Confucius taught that individuals could think for themselves. These were novel, revolutionary ideas at the time."
