Dream State of Ancient Humans
William Irwin Thompson:
"Before I had had these personal experiences of this hypercalcemic bicameral mind, I never truly understood Jean Gebser’s point that ancient humans were in the dream state, for I felt that if they had been they would have been eliminated by predators and enemies. But when I was in this dream state and having visionary experiences, I could competently walk around or talk to the doctors and nurses. I now believe this state of mind is also what Rudolf Steiner was pointing to when he claimed that ancient humans had a clairvoyant capacity and could see the gods (Steiner, 1959, p. 93)."
