Yes, that's a great video, thanks for mentioning it. I'm a big fan of her book, and you might be interested in some of these other references that have been made to Dr. Taylor's work here on this forum:

It's definitely one of my favorite TED talks. Some other good ones:

A New Way to Think About Creativity

Why Play is Vital - No Matter Your Age

The Secret, Social Lives of Bacteria

I've almost gone through all of them with it in the background at work. Absorbing new ideas is fun!

Hey Millsley, more great links! I particularly liked the one on creativity because it ties so nicely to a poll question I'm currently running at my blog. I'm asking if people agree or disagree with this statement:
"Life uses quantum physics effects such as tunneling and entanglement to engage with reality 'outside' of spacetime, and this is true of all creative processes."


Internalizing the concept that our universe really is "non-local" is key, and aligns very nicely with Elizabeth Gilbert's talk on creativity. Thanks for the link!

I think this article can also be tied into the same discussion:

http://www.economist.com/science/displa ... =13489722#

Here's the opening two paragraphs of the article, which was published a few days ago at economist.com.

Evidence mounts that brains decide before their owners know about it

EVERYONE has had the experience. You are confronted by a complex problem, with a not-so-obvious solution. You pore over it, engrossed, but still the answer will not come. Fearing you will be stuck for ever, you take a walk. Then suddenly, from nowhere, there it is. Eureka!

But did it really come from nowhere? A piece of research about to be published in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, by Joydeep Bhattacharya at Goldsmiths’ College in London and Bhavin Sheth at the University of Houston, in Texas, suggests that although people are not consciously aware of it, their brains have to be in a certain state for an insight to take place. Moreover, that state can be detected electrically several seconds in advance of the “aha!” moment itself.


When I see evidence like this it seems to confirm my idea that the construct I call "me" is in more than just the constantly updating "now" of the present instant. We are part of patterns that transcend the narrow 4D window of space-time, and these studies are another piece of the mounting evidence to that effect.
