One of my favorite TED talks. Very insightful.

Please take the time to watch this video. 

"Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions -- motion, speech, self-awareness -- shut down one by one. An astonishing story." 

It will change the way you view life. Simply put, we are all just brains with a spinal column. What she proves though--it's much more spiritual and meanginful than that.

I love TED talks! Have you seen the one about the squirrel vending machine? (its real, look it up)

Wow, I really liked this. In my opinion, she had gone a bit too far on the esotheric way in her speech, but after such a experience I can't blame her.

That's crazy. I have a bad habit of thinking a bit too existentially.

Now THIS is something I'm VERY interested in, being a pre-med student and all.

i remember the newscaster that had a stroke on television, it was freaky stuff.

i know a lot of what she was talking about, I have spent a lot of time with astro projection and the like, having out of body experiences. It's always refreshing hearing other peoples stories

On a side note. I'm digging the game curveball on the side bar. Really a nice touch
