The Hemisphere Hypothesis

Iain McGilchrist explains how our left hemispheres have gone rogue. The left hemisphere (the emissary) is meant to serve the right hemisphere (the master), but it has usurped the master's position. This usurpation is the essence of modernity. It cripples society and each one of us individually because it disconnects people from full reality: only the right hemisphere connects to the Tao and the full spectrum of reality that it leads to.
