Stroke of Insight – Jill Bolte Taylor

Takes a moment for Taylor to get to the story, but it is one of the best stories ever told. She enlightens us to the theoretical differences between the hemispheres of the brain through her experience of a stroke one morning. The left side of her brain nearly completely shut down, and what was left was quite amazing. Her story draws insight into the understanding of schizophrenia as well as our spiritual connection with others through sensation and identity. She believes that everyone can achieve nirvana and that this will lead to a peaceful world.
