Mystical experience following a stroke - jill bolte taylor's stroke of insight

Excellent video on consciousness, and the 2 sides of our brain:

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke.
 As it happened -- as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding -- she studied and remembered every moment.

 This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another. It's also about our minds, and there is no reason to believe/assume that the biochemistry of the brain is a complete understanding of such mystical experience.
