The ALPHABET vs. the Goddess: The Conflict Between Word and Image

Who will win?
This is actually the title of the book I picked up yesterday.
http://www.alphabetvsgoddess.com/

Quote:
In this groundbreaking book, Leonard Shlain, author of the bestselling Art & Physics, proposes that the process of learning alphabetic literacy rewired the human brain, with profound consequences for culture. Making remarkable connections across a wide range of subjects including brain function, anthropology, history, and religion, Shlain argues that literacy reinforced the brain's linear, abstract, predominantly masculine left hemisphere at the expense of the holistic, iconic feminine right one. This shift upset the balance between men and women initiating the disappearance of goddesses, the abhorrence of images, and, in literacy's early stages, the decline of women's political status. Patriarchy and misogyny followed.


Any kind of awakening or illumination that people crave will arrive via the language of SYMBOLS and the RIGHT Brain.

I also picked up a copy of Musicophilia Tales of Music and the Brain by Oliver Sacks
