5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Homo Sapien, 16 April 2011
This review is from: Left in the Dark (Paperback)
Rarely does a written piece have the potential to radically alter peoples perception of who they really are and what they should be. 'Left in the Dark' does exactly that. Derived from years of research in many areas of discipline it puts forward an evidence based theory of how our rapid development as a species was mostly related to the food that we ate. This food did not contain meat and was composed mostly of fruit, leaves and roots. This in itself is a revelation as the majority believe that humans are meat eaters but an examination of our digestive system seems to indicate that the authors of the book are correct. They also show us that somewhere along our development, about 200,000 years ago, due to a change in diet, we started to become left brain dominent which has heavily suppressed right brain activity. Right brain activity supports intuition, creativity, artistic abilities, mathematical abilities to name but a few. When functioning properly the right brain suppresses violent tendancies. This loss of balance between the brains two hemispheres has left us damaged. Already our brain volume has decreased by 5% indicating that we are indeed on a dead end path. The authors have provided detailed evidence that is compelling and should encourage the reader to question their whole way of life to the point where a radical change is possible.
