In face-to-face communications, the occasional need for intentional lies is something with which everyone can identify. For example, when we get mad, circumstances may force us to put on a big smile instead of expressing our anger; when we feel miserable, good manners may dictate that we greet others warmly. In short, to abide by social norms, we may consciously lie. On the other hand, if we consider the signs that our bodies express as communications (body language), we can say that the body does not lie even when the mind does. Considering this phenomenon, we propose a means of “touching the heart” in a somewhat Japanese way by measuring the heartbeat of the “honest” body and using other technologies to develop a new code of non-verbal communications from a hidden dimension in society. We call this “Meditation art” or “Zen art.” “Zen” is Buddhist style meditation
