“Mindfulness and meditation have become big business for tech-savvy entrepreneurs. But can you really unplug and reset while tied to an app on your phone? Companies like Headspace and Insight Timer say yes. But longtime practitioners, philosophers, and scientists aren’t so sure.” In The Ringer, Mike Powell looks at Meditation in the Time of Disruption. (It seems to me the first thing we need to do is acknowledge that the recent surge of interest in meditation is probably a result of the stress we feel from being in front of these screens all day. I’m guessing that same stress has helped move marijuana legalization and fueled a near obsession with getting enough sleep. The big question, of course, is whether technology can solve the problems technology has created.)
