Jill Bolte Taylor: My Stroke of Insight

Enjoy this fascinating video about a Neuro-anatomist, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, who suffered a massive stroke and then committed her life to understanding the epiphanies that befell her when the stroke quieted her linear mind. This video points to a tremendous potential in all of us to step out of the machinations of cognitions, and perceive the interconnectedness of all things.

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened -- as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding -- she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another.
