Dual Reality

Dual Reality

  • Ever since the Cognitive Revolution, Sapiens has thus been living in a dual reality.
  • On the one hand, the objective reality of rivers, trees and lions; and on the other hand, the imagined reality of gods, nations and corporations.
  • When two strangers in a tribal society want to trade, they will often establish trust by appealing to a common god, mythical ancestor or totem animal.
