Tony Wright - The Fall from the Brain of Eden

Sep 13, 2013 by Martin Higgins

Tony Wright is a consciousness theorist who believes mankind is currently in the thrall of its own dangerously unbalanced brain, whose development peaked long ago in a golden age spent in fruit symbiosis in the tropics.

Drawing on mainstream scientific data, he claims the evidence is overwhelming and calls for urgent research.

He points to neurochemical analogues which provide brief glimpses of the kind of consciousness we’ve lost, and suggests a three pronged approach to improve neural functioning.

He is the author of Left in the Dark, a book that is set for relaunch in 2014 as Return to the Brain of Eden. For further details see http://leftinthedark.org.uk and http://beyond-belief.org.uk.
