August Book of the Month: African Unconscious by Edward Bruce Bynum

In honor of the upcoming Autumn 2016 publication of Light of Consciousness Magazine featuring an article written by one of our very own authors, Cosimo would like to highlight African Unconscious by Edward Bruce Bynum, with an introduction by Linda James Myers, as our Book of the Month.

In this extraordinary and captivating work, Edward Bruce Bynum offers his viewpoint on the roots of human existence. He believes that all humans at their deepest core are variations on the African template. In effect, we possess a shared identity and collective unconscious. This magnificent work is a blend of modern and ancient psychology that provides a relevant backdrop to humanity and our daily life. Looking at phenotypes and psychic structures that form and identify us as human beings, this book is ideal for psychologists, anthropologists, historians and anyone interested in African American history and


In the article, Bynum discusses how to awaken the Ureaus—the serpent power of spiritual transcendence within each of us—and connect to the superconscious of the universe, a topic which he researched greatly for his book Dark Light Consciousness: Melanin, Serpent Power, and the Luminous Matrix of Reality.
