Inkling magazine interviewed Jill Bolte Taylor who knows a lot about thinking with the right side of the brain.
When I lost my left hemisphere I lost all of the normal “in the box” thinking. When we think about shifts in the brain it is inadequate to focus on the loss because with every loss there is a gain. As a society we do not focus on what someone has gained in the absence of something they have lost. When I lost the ability to define, organize and categorize information, I gained the ability to be intuitive and creative. In the absence of the left mind and its dominating inhibition, I gained a completely uninhibited right mind which processes information in a completely unique way when compared to the left mind.
