The Piraha are quite interesting for a number of linguistic reasons which are too boring to mention specifically, but yeah, neat stuff.

I think I'm going to have to pick up his book, thanks for sharing

Apparently this work contradicts the work of Noam Chomsky, and Chomsky accordingly called Everett a 'Charlatan.'

I liked reading the book.
"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." -
