For those curious folks interested in a deeper and broader exploration of science, technology, culture, and our changing world, UU Casper hosts “Lunch With TED” the last Sunday of each month at noon. Bring a sack lunch to eat while we watch a TED Talk video and participate in a facilitated discussion.  This month we’ll view Jill Bolte Taylor presenting “My Stroke of Insight.”

“Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions — motion, speech, self-awareness — shut down one by one. An astonishing story.” Click here for a link to this TED Talk.

TED is a nonprofit organization begun in 1984 and is devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). The project began as a type of conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today, TED Talks cover a wide and interesting range of topics — from science to business to humanity relations.
