Source: "My Stroke of Insight." TED2008. Feb. 2008. Conference Presentation. Additional Information: This quote from brain researcher Jill Bolte Taylor is about how the two hemispheres of the brain differ from one another. Says Taylor, unlike the rational, linear left-brain, the brain's right hemisphere perceives the world through pictures and movements, and incoming stimulus (such as sound, taste, smell) is simply felt, rather than organized and labeled. Taylor studied the right hemisphere of the brain first-hand when she experienced a stroke, which is the subject of the 2008 TED Talk that is the source of this quote.
