One Response to Stroke of Enlightenment?

  1. This is a fascinating video to launch this site with. Taylor’s experience, her book, and her many media appearances should provoke much discussion in our culture about the places where science and spirituality intersect (and diverge). What can we understand about consciousness and spiritual experience though empiric inquiry? How might we express those experiences in ways that others can make sense of?

    And the conclusion of Taylor’s talk raises a question for me: Why a dichotomy? Why choose? It seems her choice is to create what Kenneth Burke might call a perspective by incongruity, to be Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor so she can speak as the universal consciousness (whatever that might mean) she experienced in the midst of her stroke. Perhaps that would be what a realized gosthyanandi vaishnava or a bodhisatva would choose.
