We know what we are, but not what we may be.
― William Shakespeare
Last week I started an online course studying the brain and was introduced to a book written by Jean-Dominique Bauby, The Diving Bell and The Butterfly. At 43, he became permanently paralyzed with locked-in syndrome and only able to communicate by blinking his left eye. He wrote the aforementioned book while in that paralyzed state.

My diving bell becomes less oprressive, and my mind takes flight like a butterfly.
There is so much to do.
Jean-Dominique Bauby,The Diving Bell and The Butterfly

And his imagination, assailed by a multitude of possibilities, was tossed back and forth like an empty barrel drifting in the sea and bobbing on the waves.
Gustave Flaubert from Madame Bovary
