Simon Lewis is the author of "Rise and Shine", a memoir about his remarkable recovery from a car accident and coma. In a talk given at the INK conference he describes how after a catastrophic car accident that left him in a coma, he found ways to recover — physically and mentally — beyond all expectations. His talk offers some interesting ideas about the development of consciousness and sets out to challenge listeners to take threats to consciousness seriously.
