The Golden Apple Vol 3 by Edgar Ridley, a virtual presentation sponsored by Sankofa Video and Books, November 17, 2020. The third in the author’s series examining the impact of symbols on human behavior, boldly corrects the record on the interpretation of James George Frazer’s classic work, The Golden Bough.

In this volume, the author reminds the reader that symptomatic thought and behavior have shaped every aspect of the genome and has controlled how genes operate throughout the world. Our understanding of genetics and its importance in human life and the changes that we have made throughout the world is based on the event of what the author labels the ‘neurological misadventure of primordial man’.
