I will say if that is about that. The bicameral mind
results in "handendness". Glenn has evidence of
handedness well back in the past, so this would support
his view.

But language is also dependant on the bicameral mind. I
am saying that there is something about language, and it
would likely be a later development, that eventually leads
to true humaness. In other words a bicameral mind is
necessary but not sufficient.
