Jill Bolte Taylor's stroke of insight

Very interesting talk by brain researcher speaking about her own stroke.

  2. What a great presentation. It's nice to hear someone say we have a choice after all I've been reading and thinking lately about freedom and if we really have any. I think we do have a choice and freewill but not necessarily freedom. The choices we have are limited to the imagination. When she was talking about how she felt so big it reminded me of one way I would put myself to sleep as a child. I would imagine that my body was very large and puffed up all over and then small as a twig and large again…the next thing I knew it was morning. I could entertain myself that way because I could imagine it so well it felt real.
