What is known about the split brain is reviewed, in a historical context, as a paradigm for a new mind. The poetry of William Wordsworth is examined as a precursor to this mentality. The possibility of a new mind (and its new myth: the deconstruction) emerging from the split brain in the modern world is set forth. The last issue of consciousness, perhaps, is not the resolution of duality, but is the multiform periphery. The question is: am I more than my brain?
