Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

We may even be using the left brain to be more stupid - anything can be rationalized! Especially with the ego sitting in the left hemisphere... The modern age provokes the "rational" ego-thinking too readily.

Common stories of near-death wholistic experiences seem to indicate that the left hemisphere is switched off earlier; or does this mean that only the cases with left hemisphere still alive have good chances to return?

The picture of parallel sensory processing and sequential filtering makes sense. The wholistic view emerges as a sensory model of the world - only later the "self" and "other" senses are differentiated.
