All you have to do is follow the evidence, and not just that which is to be found in fossils, to know that the human species originated on the African continent. From there, it’s not hard then to assert that our spiritual origins also lie there, in the mighty achievements of Egyptian civilization that spread up the Nile valley and into the Middle East and then Europe, that was witnessed by Herodotus and was then taken up by Ancient Greece. Edward Bynum is an American clinical psychologist and this book goes on to explore the African aspects of our collective unconscious. It’s deep but not too heavy and academic, and it feels like a healing process to read this exposition of how we are all one and how we can shed even more light on our inner psyche by acknowledging how African civilization is so crucial to all of us.
