A Stroke of Insight ~ Jill Bolte Taylor

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor suffered a stroke in 1996 from which she took eight years to recover. During the episode she remained lucid and was able to report a mystical experience she had while her left brain hemisphere was disabled by a blood clot. Her insight is brilliant, vivid and of immeasurable value to our understanding of the nature of holographic reality. She articulates it engagingly and passionately. I initially found her accent grating, but after a few minutes I got into her story and found it rewarding enough to share on this blog.
