I love all the TED talks; TED Talks enables me to open my mind and wonder about possibilities of this universe(s) and us, humans to expand it (them). I wish I can talk at a TED stage more often.

Announcement: TED Conversation hiatus begins June 10th
That is too bad; I enjoyed the conversations and learned about other's ideas here. But I kind of understand the TED's move to the direction with this; people can share their ideas directly under the talk they viewed most of the time. I was trying to pose a question, and it did not seem like working. I wonder if that is related to the plan what you've mentioned. Thank you for facilitating this ...

What do you have to be grateful for today?
I am grateful that I am healthy, conscientious, alive, and able to appreciate the fact that being able to be alive is a precious gift. Also, I am very grateful about the existence of TED. It has been a profoundly positive platform for so many concepts I can list: community, humanity, philosophy, science, technology, design, innovation, and life. A list can contain so many concepts. THANK YOU TED!!! By the same token, I appreciate TEDSTERS very much as well. Happy New Year to all of you!!!

Iain McGilchrist: The divided brain
What a brillant, brillant, and more brillant talk. This talk really resonates with the thought about the western (occidental so to speak as apposed to estern or oriental) society we live in. I grew up in a society where both values from the brain of the right helmisphere as well as those from the left brain hemisphere: south Korea. I truly believe that what he advocates is an excellent idea for our society to consider to change. Like he concluded, valuing intuitive minds are very beneficial, natual, and comprehensive to understand as well as bring out exellent human performance.

What can we do about the constant rise of depression and suicide in young adults?
I think that it is great to explore this topic. I feel emphathetic about how difficult young adults might feel to wisely go through a life stage as our society is becoming more confusing with many principles, moral codes, religions, physical interactions, etc. It seems that there are too many choices with too little guidance for the youth to take in every direction. I hope that my two cents with a personal experience will stop someone to rethink about the concept of depression and suicide. I had depression starting when I was eight years old and all the way upto my adult age due to significantly negative events in my early life. I didn't know it was depression because the environment I had was not designed for me to realize it was. Yet, to suicide was always in my mind. It was a long journey to go through that tunnel. I held on to my life betting myself that to sustain my life until I heal myself. After that, "if the suicide is the same decision I want to make, it would not be late to do so." On the way, I saw many many people who had much tougher events happened in their lives yet harvesting meaningful lives nonetheless. What I learend was that the causes of my suffering and depression were almost trivial when I let go of my "self" a bit to look at the bigger world. I also learned that even if there is no purpose in my life, if I can win against my own will, I am strong enough tackle the world. I learned how to respect "life" with dignity. After that, I felt as if each day of my lilfe was "gift" had my life not been on this earth. Of course depression doesn't necessarily come from hard events and times, but I believe that people who have depression can benefit from examining one's perception to check whether that is healthy. If one defeats the suicidal thought, that is a beginning of life. There are so many things one can be grateful just by being alive. Keep that opportunity to feel, know, and appreciate that experience itself for you. You are precious.
