Beyond a doubt this is one of the most spiritually exciting books that I have ever read. It is the story of a brain scientist’s debilitating stroke and recovery. Essentially the blood plumbing in her brain goes bad. She details every moment as her left brain is starved of nutrients and is poisoned by the blood flowing on it.
Her description of the experience of being conscience in the right brain is unbelievable. That is it is unimaginable. If you are even minimally interested in “what’s inside” up in your head, this is one hell of a read. I am going to post more as I go through it a second time.
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
