The Price of Wisdom, Master of Frenzy and Ecstasy; original painting by Marisa Eichman, Novemenber 2015

I was the model for this recent painting by my wife Marisa Eichman, completed recently. The imagery is based on the Wotan/Woden/Odin mythic stories, and the painting is called “The Price of Wisdom: The Master of Frenzy and Ecstasy”. The image looks very much like me as I looked with a beard at the beginning of 2015. I am cleanshaven now, as part of a new cycle of transformation and En2 (enlightenment and enhancement) practices.

From this article:

His argument is based on the fact that for more than 99 per cent of human evolutionary history, we have lived as hunter-gatherer communities surviving on our wits, leading to big-brained humans. Since the invention of agriculture and cities, however, natural selection on our intellect has effective stopped and mutations have accumulated in the critical “intelligence” genes.

“I would wager that if an average citizen from Athens of 1000BC were to appear suddenly among us, he or she would be among the brightest and most intellectually alive of our colleagues and companions, with a good memory, a broad range of ideas and a clear-sighted view of important issues,” Professor Crabtree says in a provocative paper published in the journal Trends in Genetics.

“Furthermore, I would guess that he or she would be among the most emotionally stable of our friends and colleagues. I would also make this wager for the ancient inhabitants of Africa, Asia, India or the Americas, of perhaps 2,000 to 6,000 years ago,” Professor Crabtree says.

“The basis for my wager comes from new developments in genetics, anthropology, and neurobiology that make a clear prediction that our intellectual and emotional abilities are genetically surprisingly fragile,” he says.
