The earth is home for countless species and has been for many millions of years. Man is probably one of the most recent arrivals, but in a remarkably short time has so changed the world to make its future uncertain.

It has been only about 400 years since this change appeared when science, using language differently, became a significant part of our intellectual make-up. At the same time language, in the hands of writers, became the manipulator of human consciousness, as David Lodge has discussed in Consciousness and the Novel.

This book attempts to establish a new platform to understand the nature of human consciousness based on language, without the need for the concept of ‘neural correlates’, for which many currently search.

After retiring from engineering problem-solving in industry and academia, in the field of automatic control systems, Frank Evans turned his interest to what makes us human. He became a serious ‘Sunday painter’, with some success (two one-man shows) in complete distinction to his life in science and this raised new questions for him about the human intellect.
