Ted Talk: Jill Bolte Taylor’s Stroke of Insight

We mentioned this video on the Collective Imagination show last night, so I figured I’d share it today. Jill’s story is absolutely fascinating! This is one of the best wake state, first hand account experiences of a shift in consciousness I have heard by far. There’s definitely a reason why it has over 2.3M hits on YouTube, 14k+ likes and not one single dislike. A MUST WATCH, if you have not yet seen it!

Here is the description from YouTube:

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.
