"Information in the form of energy streams in simultaneously through all our sensory systems in the form of energy. And then it explodes into this enormous collage of what this present moment looks like, what it feels like, and what it sounds like. It explodes into this enormous collage and in this moment we are perfect, we are whole, and we are beautiful."

and i'll always love this.
my first and favorite of all tedtalks.
Wow, really? Me too! What made you seek this TED Talk out?
For me it was a friend with a brain aneurysm.
for me it was a friend who had heard my drowning story and said, "i know the sister story for you!"
I think that's why her TED talk is so relatable for anyone who had near tragedy and is seeking meaning.
yes. it's the quintessential tedtalk: informative, entertaining, passionate, personal, relatable, poignant and even spiritual. jill bolte taylor is queen of ted!
She is! Does she have any more talks worth watching?
Found another Symphony of Science: The Quantum World with Morgan Freeman.
