[Talk] Jill Bolte Taylor : My stroke of insight.

This is a talk about her experience of left brain stroke. Her experience of perception by right brain is very fascinating. I felt the taste of a mixture of Buddhism and neuro science. After I saw this video, I think the power of meditation is controlling or resting the part of function of left brain and enhancing the perception through right brain. Then you could feel more a sense of unity for everything, which would be a transcendental experience.

좌뇌부분의 뇌출혈로 인한 뇌손상으로 특이한 체험을 하게 된 뇌과학자의 강연이다. 좌뇌가 기능을 멈춘 후 대상을 분별하는 지각기능을 상실한 후 그녀가 묘사한 ‘자아가 사라진 경계’는 무아나 깊은 명상체험과 유사한 것이 아닐가 하는 생각이 들게 하였다. 어쩌면 명상이란 좌뇌의 기능을 스스로 조절하는 힘을 기르게 해서 과장되거나 왜곡된 인식을 교정하게 하는 것은 아닐까?
