This is a quote from Neo Tech III by deceased author Frank Wallace. [He was killed by a hit and run vehicle]
“1. First man is made to feel guilty. He is condemned for having lost his “innocence” by inventing consciousness. He is condemned for exchanging his automatic, bicameral life for a volitional, conscious life… condemned for exchanging his nature-given bicameral mind for a superior, man-invented conscious mind.
2. Then man is offered automatic solutions to problems and guidance through life into an “effortless” Garden Of Eden or a utopian hereafter if he exchanges his own invented consciousness for faith in external “authority” — bicameral faith in some leader, doctrine, or god. He is offered the “reward” of escaping the self-responsibility to make one’s own decisions and to guide one’s own life. But for that “reward”, he must renounce his own mind to follow someone else’s mind or wishes disguised as the “truth” promulgated by some external “authority” or higher power.
But in reality, no valid external “authority” or higher power can exist or ever has existed. Valid authority evolves only from one’s own independent, conscious mode of thinking. When that fact is fully realized, man will emerge completely from his bicameral past and move into a future that accepts individual consciousness as the only authority. …Man will then fully evolve into a prosperous, happy individual who has assumed full responsibility for his own thinking and life.
Still, the resistance to self-responsibility is formidable. The bicameral mentality grips those seeking mysticism or other “authorities” for guidance. Those who accept external “authority” allow government officials, religious leaders, faith, homilies, clichés, one-liners, slogans, the familiar, habits, and feelings to guide their actions. Neo-Tech II demonstrates how throughout history billions of people unnecessarily submit through their bicameral tendencies to the illusionary, external “authorities” of government and religion. And that submission is always done at a net loss to everyone’s well being and happiness.”
