The psychologist Daniel Kahneman describes two systems of thinking. According to Wikipedia, "'System 1' is fast, instinctive, and emotional; 'System 2' is slower, more deliberative, and more logical."
Surfing the Internet tends to be unproductive. The objective of Mind Matter is to disrupt cognitive ease and force users to perform system 2 thinking.
