THE INSECT- POPULATED MIND (2005)
How the nature of mind is related to the processes undergone by metamorphic insects.
In this book I propose a close connection between aspects of insect evolution and the functioning of the human intellect. By examining seemingly disparate subjects - entomology, language history, genetics, literature and music - I show how such a synthesis is possible. Once this fusion is achieved, the human species can be seen as connected not just to the great apes, but also via genetics and embryology to metamorphic insects. My books also presents a critique on the roots and nature of the mind of the work of Daniel Dennett and Terrence Deacon.
Pythagorean Quaternity is a key.
