Computational Mindfulness

Philip Z. Maymin, Stella P. Maymin


We take a computational approach to investigating highly abstract concepts including mindfulness, brain waves, and quantum mechanics. Using Langerian non-meditative mindfulness, defined as the active process of noticing new things, we find that when tested on the authors as subjects in two different ways, induced mindfulness is consistently distinguishable from induced mindlessness, and results in a calmer time series of brain waves as measured on an electroencephalogram. Additional results include a statistical Granger causality analysis of scholarly mindfulness research showing that Langerian mindfulness research causes future mindfulness research but not vice versa, and preliminary results from another study showing substantial differences in responses among subjects induced to view their own faces either mindfully or mindlessly.
