"My entire self-concept shifted as I no longer perceived myself as a single, a solid, an entity with boundaries that separated me from the entities around me. ... Now, released from that restrictive circuitry, my right hemisphere relished in its attachment to the eternal flow. I was no longer isolated and alone. My soul was as big as the universe and frolicked with glee in a boundless sea."
~ Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D., My Stroke of Insight
The above book is incredible; I highly recommend it. Also, see her dynamic lecture on TED.
