Our brain is a miracle. That’s what I thought when I watched this video (I embed the video below). In the video (which was suggested to me by Avani from Food for Mind), brain scientist Jill Bolte Taylor described her experience when she was hit by stroke. Since she was already a brain scientist at that time, she was able to see things that might be overlooked by other people and describe her experience in vivid details. Watching this video makes me think that:
- Having the brain works the way it normally does is a miracle. Behind the scene, there are very complex processes involved we don’t realize.
- There are a lot more potential in our brain (especially the right hemisphere) than we may understand.
Watch it yourself (it’s only 18 minutes long) and let me know what you think.
