This is an opportune time to say Hi and introduce myself.
My name is Bill and my screen name is “Remember”. The word “remember” is most significant to me as it has several meanings where I’m concerned, so I’ve adopted it. I was in an accident two years ago and suffered multiple injuries including brain trauma (multiple lacerations to the frontal lobe, various contusions & bruised brain stem), 3 broken vertabrae of the neck with spinal cord trauma, broken shoulders (both), etc. I awoke from a coma with complete amnesia. Not only did I have to “remember” who I was, but also basic things such as words and how to speak. I also had to relearn how to use my hands and walk.
I was introcuced to CC with his first book (The Teachings of DJ) in an anthropology class when I was in college……..it must have been in the late 60’s or early 70’s.
There’s so damn much to this story, it’ll take awhile (future correspondence) for it all to come out. However, you may find it interesting (and germaine to the subject matter of this website) that I awoke from the coma with almost no inner dialog going on. Additionally, somehow I was pushed (to some degree) into my left side awareness and stayed there for many months (maybe still). During this period I came to the knowledge/awareness that I’ve been a stalker all of my life (but that’s another story).
Needless to say, these things (among others) are having a profound impact into my life. Hence, my reason for joining this forum.
I want to know, understand and “remember” more………………….
Thank you, I’m happy to make your acquaintance,
