See my previous blog entry regarding Jill Bolte Taylor, the author. There is also a link to a very interesting video.
In another recent blog entry I mentioned my interest in mind/body medicine and linked to a game called re-mission, which is a computer game that helps cancer patients imagine fighting their cancer.
It is very interesting to me that I came upon this quote from the book My Stroke of Insight on page 136 (the end of chapter 14) in the English version: "To help other stroke survivors, I'm working on the creation of a virtual reality system whereby individuals can neurologically rehabilitate themselves through what I call 'visually directed intention.'" I had no idea that Jill Bolte Taylor was involved in such a project. I find it fascinating to see how seemingly unrelated events or information come together for a purpose that was not specifically intended by me or anyone else.
I think that coincidences aren't really coincidences. I think that events are planned out by a mysterious and intelligent force. All we have to do is pay attention.
