Return to the Brain of Eden


Return to the Brain of Eden

This group is for all who desire to investigate, or believe themselves to have understood, the effects (probably positive, but perhaps even profound) that foli-frugivorous diets can have on human neurology, especially that of our eventual foli-frugivorous progeny, as outlined in the book 'Left in the Dark' (called 'Return to the Brain of Eden' in its third edition), based on the experimentation and research by Tony Wright.

The idea is that members can discuss the validity and implications of the material, e.g. discussing whether or not the data adds up to conclude that mankind is deluded as claimed, and what personal and large-scale sociological effects might be expected if the neurology of our species could be restored as suggested.

For those who understand the premise to be valid, this is a platform for them to work together on spreading the message in effective ways.

The third edition of "Left in the Dark" was released months ago, and is entitled "Return to the Brain of Eden". This edition isn't self-published like the first two were (IIRC), so hopefully it'll gain a wider audience (especially with a title that's clearer as to what the book is about). I've seen that it's available at the official page (leftinthedark.org.uk/book) and on Amazon. I've yet to read it, and I don't know how much of the old material has been rewritten, if any, but it seems it comes with some new material, at least, given the larger number of pages this time around.

Hi HandymanBananas. Your post was long ago... but in case you are still interested, here is a link to a BBC UK article: "The Myth of the 8 Hour Sleep"

I am new to 30BAD so I couldn't join the discussion earlier. I think this is fascinating topic. When I was doing a coconut fast 5 h of sleep was enough for me. I went to bed at 10 pm and I woke up at 3 am. I was lying in the bed and I couldn't sleep. It was so calm and dark and I had such great inside inspiring thought. During the day I had a lot of energy, I could exercise and the life felt so beautiful. I fasted 7 days and  during six nights I had the same experience.

Have a wonderful day!

I'm deligthed to hear it, Delight! Tony is collaborating with a few people towards getting up a "Left in the Dark"-specific forum site, so hopefully all here who want to dig deeper into this will have an official place to do so in not all that long of a time.
