Freud’s time scheme was wrong. The evolution of superegos had to be dated much earlier than the origin of totemism, ritual, myth, and so forth. “The apes described by Zuckerman had already gone a long way upon the road” (p. 189). In these reflections, Róheim anticipated recent efforts to revive Freud’s theory of the primal horde by dating the events to primate rather than hominid evolution (Badcock 1980). Such a reformulation detaches the theory of the primal horde from theories of the origin of religion, which paleoanthropologists currently date to the Neanderthal period, comparatively late in the evolution of hominids.

78) Rank did not consider the logical implications of his own findings. If the reflection that Narcissus sees in the water is compared with ethnological data on belief in a separable soul, the narrative implicitly concerns a dream or vision in which he beholds his separable soul. In psychoanalytic terms, what Narcissus sees is his self-image, the pictorial image in his dream or vision that represents his self. Whether belief in a separable soul is rightly diagnosed as narcissistic, the myth of Narcissus is a cautionary tale that warns against his behavior.
