The Power of Tracking Meditation:
“What thought-controlled computing can allow you do to is build colorful layered pictures of our lives, and with this, we can get the skinny on our psychological happenings and build a story of our behaviors over time. We can begin to see the underlying narratives that propel us forward about and tell us about what's going on over time. And from this, we can learn to change the plot, the characters, and the outcome of our personal stories.” – Ariel Garten
