Found this video over at Doug Pagitt‘s blog. It’s a TED Talk by a “Neuroanatomist” named Jill Bolte Taylor, in which she recounts her experience of a having a stroke, from the standpoint of a brain scientist. She was able to remember the entire process, and in the end, discovered that there is much more to life than there seems to be.
While she doesn’t come to any specific revelation regarding Jesus, or even the Judeo-Christian God, I valued hearing about her spiritual experience, especially in light of her being a Scientist.
Scientists aren’t supposed to talk about things like Nirvana, and visions of heaven-like places… are they? 😉
