I love youtube. Greatest source of asinine entertainment. Like ever. But sometimes, less frequently than I would care to admit, I stumble across something truly inspirational. That very rare moment just occurred and I feel like sharing.
Ok so there's this nonprofit called TED whose main purpose for being is to share ideas worth spreading. So they hold talks with biologists, physicists, philosophers, entertainers, educators...etc. And they give these 20 min talks about really awesome things.
Ok back to my moment of inspiration. So last year they had on a neuroanatomist, Jill Bolte Taylor. Prior to this I didn't even know neuroanatomists existed, well they do. Shocker. Anways back to Jill, she's this premier neuroanatomist and 12 yr ago she had a stroke. And it's a rare, I guess treat, for someone whose studied the brain for their entire life to be able to experience a stroke from the inside. (Her words, sort of, not mine). So she goes into describing how the hemmorage in her brain cut off her left hemisphere- so she was completely right brained, except for few moments of clarity that would come. And she described this incredible nirvan-ic experience where she felt divine love..literally I mean she felt this connection with all there is. And just...I don't know I guess i'll leave it for you to judge. But this truly inspired me and for some reason brought me to tears.. enjoy :)
