    The most hauting question that this book poses is this Chimpanzees can abstract Like other mammals they are capable of strong emotionsWhy exactly all over the civilized world in virtually every major city are apes in prison? For a species that has proclaimed itself to be the rulers of Earth this is not a very difficult question to answer for us It is a single word suppression We humans never much liked competition from other creatures and history tells us that this was how we overcame all our natural predators through weaponry or guile in the eons past A moment of reflection on our past brings up that question why did the other humanoids not survive while our ancestors did ? How did they all gt wiped out ? Natural selection could not have been the only answerThis book is one that shook me out of cerebral complacency and like a good author Sagan opens the cobweb laden windows of my brain and lets the light inThis is a book length introspection into the nature of human intellect From the first tottering steps of our primate ancestors to today's technologically addicted life forms how has the journey been for that mass of tissue between our ears ? This is what Sagan attempts to answer In simplelucid and easy to comprehend prose the author breaks down the story of how our brains assumed today's form and reflexes It is a tour de force that mixes and matches historypaleontology psychology and other branches of human understanding to come up with a fascinating studyThe evolution of the brain and how the most primal fears in our psyche still rule our subconscious is a fascinating observation and forms the best part of this book The aspect of the Triune brain and the R complex's involvement in human behavior is what Sagan calls the Dragons chained away in the dungeons of our minds Our basic aversion to reptiles and the dreams populated with snakes coupled with the dreams of a fall from a height are all speculated upon by Sagan in teh backdrop of our dreams They were quire revelatory and while I might at a later point in time with readingdebate these points they did rekindle my interest in the human brain's inner workings I finished reading put down the book and ran my fingers through my hair and muttered You are a rockstar to my brain The kind of rockstar who you can never fully figure out is how it might react to that comment This book is highly recommended and it is no fluke that I rate all of Sagan's books so far as five stars This is stuff that will genuinely interest the skeptical mind
