This got ignored in CMT, so I thought I'd post it here. Dr. Jill Taylor is a neuroscientist who had a mystical experience when she had a stroke. It's a pretty amazing story. There's an 18 min. video and a longer radio interview, as well as a book that she's written. http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/229 http://www.shrinkrapradio.com/tag/jill-bolte-taylor/ podcast #147 http://www.lulu.com/content/458594

Pooh - I can't get it!!  Sounds pretty neat.

I had a pretty profound experience while nearly drowning about 13 years ago.  If I feel up to it, I may post it one day soon.

I think Rainey posted that before she left a couple of months ago, which may be why you didn't get much response in CMT. Fascinating lecture and somehow reassuring.

ETA: Yes, here it is. The link in the first post still works. http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=110986
