Here is the epic adventure of the rise and unfolding of human consciousness from its earliest days millennia ago, on through the first civilizations and down to contemporary times. The mythic Mitochondrial DNA, "mother of humanity," of 10,000 generations ago is used to personalize this journey for readers, a journey seen to be an integral part of each of us. This includes not only her shared African gene pool but also the neuro-biologically interwoven evolutionary impulse. How different personalities deal with this intelligent and luminous current is the primary thrust of this groundbreaking book that readers will find of extraordinary value in the exploration of human consciousness.
