Dear gojohns22-ga, I believe the quote should read as, "...so that whatever in us it is that we refer to as will stands master and captain over action with as sovereign a hand as the operator over a subject?" The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind - Page 402 by Julian Jaynes This appears on Google Books but only in a very limited extract. By enlarging the search terms I have managed to find the full sentence. ?If under hypnosis we can be changed in identity and action, why not in and by ourselves so that behavior flows from decision with as absolute a connection, so that whatever in us it is that we refer to as will stands master and captain over action with as sovereign a hand as the operator over a subject?? 1st item in this search term http://books.google.com/books?q=%22sovereign+%22+Julian+Jaynes&btnG=Search+Books&as_brr=0 1st item in this search term http://books.google.com/books?q=%22If+under+hypnosis+we+can+be+changed+in+identity+and+action%2C+%22+Julian+Jaynes&btnG=Search+Books&as_brr=0 I hope this answers your question.
