A wide variety of companies are tracking our emotions using technology. This opens up a huge can of worms in that what is and should be in the realm of technology, and what should be left in the domain of human, intuitive experience?
Emotions are being tracked…and by doing so, through biofeedback mechanisms, we can be more sensitive to what we might be feeling inside. They can give us a reflection back into ourselves.
However, they can never be a substitute for our own feelings. Technology doesn’t feel — our ‘soul’ feels. While there are some important questions to still explore in this regard, one can safely say that ultimately the realm of feeling can’t be substituted…and is fundamental…to our experience of life.
