About this book

Proposes that the human mind is a hybrid product of the interweaving of a super-complex form of matter (the brain) with an invisible symbolic web (culture) to form a 'distributed' cognitive network. Donald explains how an expansion of conscious capacity was the key to this revolutionary development.
