Honesty and the Diary of a Nobody
How honest can someone be? Is 100 percent honesty possible or desirable? I reckon that most people's idea of '100 percent honesty' simple means a socially appropriate level of honesty. But I think honesty could be taken much further than that and even go 'beneath the skin'. A well known book is the 'Diary of a nobody'. I'd like to see an updated equivalent working through the internet where someone is attached to every measuring device imaginable for a week . We would know their current heart rate, stress levels (through GSR) and through attachment to a lie detector we would even be able to see if they are lying. That would make an interesting TV programme.
