The article outlines how and why the origins of the Book of Mormon once lay within the cerebral neocortex of its author, Joseph Smith, Jr., as it relates to the people and events that were a part of his life. It is said that psychobiography started with Austrian neurologist Sigmund Freud's attempt to analyze Italian scientist and artist Leonardo da Vinci in 1910. The explanation for complex behaviors in the history of Smith is that they were the result of supernatural commandments to him. It is noted that Smith claimed to supernaturally translate ancient Egyptian.
