A Marvelous TED talk about the brain and our perception of who we are: what a brain scientist learned from her stroke

Don't miss this incredible talk by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a brain scientist who tells of her experience of having a stroke -- and how it changed her perception of herself and the world.  It's only 18 minutes long, but is one of the most powerful talks I've ever heard. She gave this talk in Monterey, California in 2008, and it is probably the most popular TED talk ever given anywhere at any time.  If you click on the link below and watch it, you will see why.  She is amazing, and her story is magically told--and unforgettable. The audience was riveted -- and I was, too, watching it here online tonight. She calls her experience A Powerful Stroke of Insight.  I think you will agree with her that it was that -- and More.  I'm grateful that she lived to share it with the world.
