Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for… This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another.
It is really worth a listen.
I think it totally explains this little passage from my rants (in less neuroanatomist style).
Mind with a big M is that “other mind” and is accessed through the heart or body. Little mind is brain stuff. Stuff you have learned from a book — good bad right wrong war peace black white sinner saint — that stuff, divisive stuff. Small m mind is good for the laundry list. Without it you wouldn’t be able to drive a car or cook a meal. It’s useful in physical reality and we need to do a bit of that m stuff just to get around. The problem is we have just spent too much time using it for way bigger stuff than it was intended for, like attempting to find truth and beauty and oneness.
Ya gotta love choice Happy Sunday.
