Have you had an unusual experience while being highly conscious of LH and RH attention modes? Mine doesn’t fit into any existing groups, so I thought I’d make a new one for interesting experiences.
I had a recent close encounter with a Grizzly Bear, and while I’ve told the story in person at least a dozen times, I’ve never spoken of the divided brain aspect I relate here. I tell this version on Channel McGilchrist because only someone familiar with Iain’s work could possibly know what I’m talking about.
As this sacred, reverberating, once-in-a-lifetime encounter with nature recedes to more distant memory, I think a lot more lately about what to do with this awareness of attention modes. Whatever happens down the road, it seems clear enough to me that the next immediate step is to spread this discovery as far as it can go. With that in mind I renamed this space Beyond Theory – Experience, Attention, and Action.

Personality and Living the Truths of Hemispheric Lateralization
Personality and Living the Truths of Hemispheric LateralizationPosted by Charles Rykken on November 14, 2022 at 2:05 am
I am interested in the question of how a person’s personality affects how well they can manifest awareness of hemispheric lateralization. Is authenticity, for example, important? https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092656621000234?via%3Dihub . Babbit and “The Death of a Salesman” are literary examples that explore this dimension of the human story. Openness to experience from the five factor model figures prominently in how a person sees the world. How do various psychological predispositions figure in how successful a person can be in manifesting the truths that Dr, McGilchrist has uncovered?
