A Stroke of Insight

http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/jill_bolte_taylor_s_powerful_stroke_of_insight.html

This video is a talk given by a brain scientist who had a stroke and analysed what was going on as she was having the stroke. That is fascinating enough but then she talks about what happened to her as her left side of her brain gave out and the experience she had and it sounds scaringly similar to what people experience when they have near death experiences.

Conversations with Neale Donald Walsh

Last night I went to a movie screening of Conversations with God.  This was based on the excellent books by Neale Donald Walsh and was about the circumstances in his life that led him to write the books.

There was a Q&A after the movie and it was interesting to see how the other people interpreted and responded to his work.

Best $50 spent in a long while.
