IMO, the whole riddle of divine revelation can be explaned by the following:

Jaynes’ case for bicameralism
According to Jaynes ancient people in the bicameral state of mind would have experienced the world in a manner that has some similarities to that of a schizophrenic. Rather than making conscious evaluations in novel or unexpected situations, the person would hallucinate a voice or “god” giving admonitory advice or commands and obey without question: one would not be at all conscious of one’s own thought processes per se.

Al people claiming to hear God are schizophrenic.


Art is the creation of that which evokes an emotional response, leading to thoughts of the noblest kind.
