Knowledge through Unconsciousness

About a year ago, I was a friend gave me a remarkable book entitled, My Stroke of Insight:  A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey. In a nutshell, Jill Bolte Taylor is a brain scientist who had a stroke at the age of 37, and made a full recovery.  She was able to recall what happened to her, and because of her expertise, she knew exactly what was happening.  However, what amazed her (and me) was what she learned about the human consciousness and how she began to understand herself in a broader context.

The book at the interview is a wonderful account of our place in relation to something bigger, and for anyone who has ever doubted that something bigger exists, I encourage you to tune into Tapestry as Mary Hynes interviews Jill Bolte Taylor.
