Brain researchers say the eye is the window to the soul, and if you have a soul, that it resides in the temporal lobe of your brain. They also say the temporal lobe is "exquisitely prone to insult"
My temporal lobe was insulted when I was 17. Immediately following my first exposure to cannabis, I had powerfulI temporal lobe seizures. I lost my emotions and also lost limbic resonance.
I could no longer relate to my mirror image as I once had. The damage in my limbic region was clouding my vision. I developed recurrent major depression featuring severe insomnia and anxiety
from this incident and I continued to experience focal temporal lobe seizures for decades thereafter. I also experienced frequent ocular migraine aura.
40 years later, I had an EEG which showed I had significant pathology in my dominant temporal lobe. That damage had occurred when I was 17.
At 57, I was told I was disabled from an event which had occurred 40 years earlier. I had retired early, so I just added the disability check to my monthly income.
I had ECT in 2014, which seems to have cured the depression. The focal seizures stopped somewhere in the mix. Life goes on.
