When my wife and I met one of the first things that attracted us to each other was that our bookshelves held many of the same titles.

The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind was one of those. Not an easy tome and it requires several readings to grok.

The mind has been a topic in almost every book I’ve written. I’ve even used mine in writing most of them. I think its truly the last frontier: how does it really work? What is consciousness? How much of our potential are we using. I examined the latter in a lot of books including Psychic Warrior.

But my most intriguing and strangest book has to be The Fifth Floor, which is free today and tomorrow (11/4 and 11/5). Not just the topic but the various voices its written it, the book questions what is reality? At least for the protagonist of the story.
