How come Bronze Age people seem so psychologically alien compared to later period humans?

How come Bronze Age people seem so psychologically alien compared to later period humans? Genetically, not that much has changed since then, but they somehow still seem so completely foreign and non-human. Like how did some Egyptian and Sumerian rulers convince literal hundreds of attendants to kill themselves and join them in their graves?

      it exists but not as described. Or rather the described phenomenon exists, but isn't what it's said to be. The twilight of oral tradition and beginnings of written were technological developments from earlier forms of thought. they were analogue computing based on human experience. The second chamber of the so-called bicameral mind is fundamentally external to the human body, it's a technological AI. It can be beaten back by destroying libraries.

        They started cooking in iron, and their neocortexes stopped working. It has been a vestigial organ since then, outside an ocassional rise, which is shortly fixed by israelites.

    You're seriously asking this when convincing parents to chemically castrate their own children has become a common phenomenon today? People always were and always will be morons. The human race is a pile of shit.

        Ritualistic mass suicide isn't that uncommon even in the modern era.

        To be fair western civilization is currently committing a protracted suicide and most people don't have any issue with it

        You're making the mistake of comparing the ancient world with the utterly jaded modern, post reformation, enlightenment and rationalism world.

        Before 1500 everyone was a complete and total religious fanatic, fully convinced beyond any measure of doubt of what the priests are preaching. Only with a small interruption during late roman republican times when Epicurianism was popular among the aristocrats and moneyed class.

          Rationalism is the religious world. The enlightenment brought empiricism, those who are now celebrated were actually in the opposition. They only debated Kant because they saw him as what would probably be called a reactionary today. The legacy of the enlightenment has been pretty much undone by idiots who had no idea what they were fighting for.

            Religion is based on some scripture or other holy texts. All legitimate opinions stem from this holy canon, all observations and events must be interpreted according to the canon, contradicting it is a massive no no followed by a brutal punishment.

            Now you tell me how empiricism figures in religion.

        If we knew the backgrounds of the sacrificed it might be easier to understand. He was a divine ruler afterall.

    the dryas event caused a catastrophic loss of institutional and generational knowledge (both for city dwellers and nomad societies) and humanity was cast back to the forest where instinct and first hand experience had to be built from the ground up.
    the wind patterns permanently changed because of this event.

      this. I don't most people comprehend the dark ages that must have occurred after the bronze age collapse. at least 500 years of pure barbarity before the greeks started to reemerge, and I personally believe the bronze age civilizations were rebuilding from a different civilization collapse for millenia before they fell.

        there was another worldwide collapse at 2200 BC and at least few between 40th and 30th century BC the environmental conditions were highly unstable then

        You seem to think being a "head of state" in the bronze age means you're automatically a smart, honorable person and not an abnormal maniac pampered as a living god his whole life by the people who died with him

    Where is it implied? Like, you have a graveyard, with commoners and a noble, how does it imply that they were killed with him? Couldn't it be just a graveyard with a noble family crypt?

    Are you referring to that one mass grave they found in Iraq?
    Because we know literally nothing about the context it happened in.
    I does appear to be a once off thing and for all we know it could just be the result of a plague.
