“The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind”

I ordered the book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind by Julian Jaynes today. Seems to be a theory that may capture a sense of what the mind felt like/or feels like now. This Bicameral theory of the mind may connect to the split brain patient studies, which have always been fascinating. Very excited to read the book, and curious how it may take me to a new understanding, as everything inevitably seems too. I always feel I’m finally on a solid ground of who “I am”, but new information shifts perspective of “I am” and this world around and within me. I didn’t use to feel this flowy. But maybe I always was, just the resistance to flow and “I am’s” false identifications with what’s in this world within me clouded over my “I am’s” flow within and without. Is this “I am” somewhat captured by the idea of the right brain? I think Julian Jaynes book may be related to this question and it may be insightful.
