Why connect computers with the rest of you?

Computers allow us to analyze, track, and capture all sorts of things. Using them to explore some of the aspects of our being over which we ourselves have limited or no control will undoubtedly produce profound conclusions about how we function and may cause drastic changes in how we go about our daily lives.

That we are finally starting to be able to access parts of ourselves so ingrained that we barely notice their existence is the most interesting thing to me about connecting sensors and devices as an extension of ourselves. We can use computers as faithful detectors of signs too minute or slow for us to detect on our own.

I hope to apply technology to my own self in the hopes that I can pick up patterns that would otherwise be invisible, and to use those patterns to better myself and others in any way possible.
