An Interesting Glimpse Into 
interesting glimpse into life was like for primordial man The story begins with a modern man who is having dreams and nightmares which are of a type so distressing and profound that they are disabling to his waking life In these dreams he is embodied in an early evolutive stage of humanity predating homo sapiens basically a low intelligence caveman and through these dreams he relives an entire lifetime of intermittent images and experiences that he later puzzles together into a coherent narrative These dreams turn out to be genetic or racial memories snippets of real life that his progenitors experienced over 1 million years ago in the Mid Pleistocene when hominids began to evolve into their current form but still coexisted with other contemporaneous hominid speciesLondon actually does a good job #of establishing the possibility of genetic memories of bygone eras being transmitted to and through #establishing the possibility of genetic memories of bygone eras being transmitted to and through of us as our biological heritage It is in line with Jung s theory of the Collective Unconscious and is primarily how we define or describe what we Jack Glass know as instinct London explains through the protagonist that one of the most familiar vestiges of this evolutive memory is the fear of heights which is posited to be a leftover from our tree dwelling ancestors Why else would a newborn baby be sent into convulsions when it suddenly detects instability beneath it London wiggles his finger into this hole and works it wide enough to accommodate the possibility of a person having concrete memories and dreams that conduct ungarbled sensory data from a past life to the present one This other than a strong imagination could explain some people s claim to reincarnation or what is referred to as remote viewing The main character describes his primitive experiences without allowing his modern viewpoint to internally vitiate only retrospectively comment upon the ancient perspective Hi. Written in 1906 Before Adam is a bit of a departure from London's other novels Still an adventure novel this one revolves around the dreams of a young boy dreams that involve racial. Ems to sum us up uite succinctly The uestion London leaves unanswered is have we as civilized men and women come as far as we like to thinkHmmm Jack London a writter wellnown by his great tales of south seas and about the gold rush in Alaska with tales as To Light a Fire or Law of Life is a forefather of several genres the postapocaliptic with the novel The Scarlet Plague the utopian distopian with The Iron Heel and rather unclassifiable Before Adamwritten 1907 when few was nown about human evolutionThis novel has curious similarities with two later novelsThe Shadow Out of Time by Lovecraft Witten in 1934where a man dreams of a previous ancient life in other body and with the Inheritors by William Golding written in 1955 where is described the extinction of the Neantherthals at hand of the Homo Sapienswith this one the novel by London has stronger similaritiesThi I happened on this one during a browse session at my local used book dealer Since I remember loving Call of the Wild this seemed a no brainer to try Further thanks to the first section of Arthur C Clarke s 2001 I was also anxious to see #another fictional take on prehistoric humans Both as a Jack London and another dip into literature about #fictional take on prehistoric humans Both as a London outing and another dip into literature about times this book paid off Before Adam may not be as attractive a story as other Jack London fare The content reads even brutal The protagonist also seems less sympathetic than Buck the hero of Call of the Wild The combined effect is a book that feels uite dark even though it focuses on daytime danger The first person narrative provides a Poe like feel as we are taken into the protagonist s nightmarish memories of primitive time Though the story contains an antagonist a romance and a sense of morality the ape like behavior makes it difficult to connect with the main characters Nevertheless I found myself grinning during the story s courtship chapter Apparently females have been playing hard to get for eons Kudos to Mr London for resisting the urge to humanize and prettify the subject material Before Adam reads as a sincere effort to dramatize the best evolutionary theory of early 1900s It makes the story though harder to warm up to legitimate If you ve read other London I recommend giving this one a read. That as surely as we one day swung down out of the trees and walked upright just as surely on a far earlier day did we crawl up out of the sea and achieve our first adventure on lan. ,
