Iain McGilchrist in positionality and metal illness.
I pooped out when the discussion moved from the brain to the social causes and consequences of mental illness.

I saw on one site I read regularly that there is now a formula that identifies two different configurations of brain activity with orientations to tasks or orientation to solitary thought.

I treat most of what I read about the brain as comparable to the maps that guided ancient mariners. And whenever I get binary confinements, I shudder a bit. Yet I also find the thinking most interesting that insists on our bodily, physical reality. So thanks for sharing this video with your readers.
I liked McGilchrist's observation that the part of the brain that's good at ordering things has taken over, suppressing the other ways of thinking.
