Leonard Shlain August 28, — May 11, was an American surgeon , author, and inventor.

Sex, Time, and Power offers a tantalizing answer to an age-old question: Why did big-brained Homo sapiens suddenly emerge some , years ago? The key, according to Shlain, is female sexuality. Natural selection allowed for the adaptation of the human female to this environmental stress by reconfiguring her hormonal cycles, entraining them with the periodicity of the moon. The results, however, did much more than ensure our existence; they imbued women with the concept of time, and gave them control over sex—a power that males sought to reclaim. And the possibility of achieving immortality through heirs drove men to construct patriarchal cultures that went on to dominate so much of human history.

L eonard Shlain proposes that the visionary artist is the first member of a culture to see the world in a new way. Then, nearly simultaneously, a revolutionary physicist discovers a new way to think about the world. Escorting the reader through the classical, medieval, Renaissance and modern eras, Shlain shows how the artists' images when superimposed on the physicists' concepts create a compelling fit. Throughout, Shlain juxtaposes the specific art works of famous artists alongside the world-changing ideas of great thinkers.

Art and Physics: Parallel Visions in Space, Time and Light - Abstract

Who changed the sex of god? Making remarkable connections across brain function, myth and anthropology, Dr. Shlain shows why pre-literate cultures were principally informed by holistic, right-brain modes that venerated the Goddess, images and feminine values. Writing drove cultures toward linear left-brain thinking and this shift upset the balance between men and women, initiating the decline of feminine and ushering in patriarchal rule. Examining the cultures of the Israelites, Greeks, Christians and Muslims, Shlain reinterprets ancient myths and parables in light of this theory.

W hy did big-brained Homo sapiens suddenly emerge some , years ago? Natural selection adapted her to this unique environmental stress by drastically reconfiguring her hormonal reproductive cycle. Her estrus disappeared and menses mysteriously entrained with the periodicity of the moon. Women formulated the concept of a month, which in turn allowed them to make the connection between sex and pregnancy. Upon learning the majestic secret of time these ancestral females then gained the power to refuse sex when they were ovulating.
