Awe-Inspiring Video: My Stroke Insight

Brain researcher Jill Bolte Taylor recounts her experience of living through a massive stroke in this inspiring video from the Ted Talks series. It speaks powerfully to some of the questions I've pondered here about the nature of identity and our perception of reality.


  1. that was amazing and (forgive the pun) mind blowing.. to have someone with that knowledge recount how it feels to go though something like that... i am in awe...

  2. Incredible indeed! Thanks for linking to this.

  3. Thank you for sharing that. It's so helpful to have insight from someone who can relate the experience to the science. Very moving.

  4. Incredibly powerful. Just...powerful. Thanks for posting it.

  5. I just received her recent book from Amazon yesterday!
