Saturday Video: An astonishing story

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.
She have experienced the oneness everyone speaks about so much. The ultimate human experience, in yoga known as a samadhi; available to everyone. An astonishing story.


  1. Wow! That iiiizzz amazing!
    I wish that I can switch over to the right hemisphere of my brain.

  2. Yang, we all wish we could, it was more than just a switch, one side of the brain got completely paralyzed. It was a lucky brain stroke.
    I wonder what she's up to now...
