Why is Nomie an elephant?

Why is Nomie an elephant?

When I started coding Nomie (Mento at the time), I was reading Jonathan Haidt's Happiness Hypothesis. In the book, Jonathan makes references to the concept of the Elephant and the Rider. The idea is that you are both the elephant and the rider. You, as the conscious rider, must learn to work and manage your inner elephant - who is, for all intents and purposes, an animal.

Few other Points

  1. Elephants Don't Forget
  2. The buddha said that meditation was like "caging the elephant" - calming the inner animal.
  3. Nomie helps ease into addressing the elephant in the room.

Evolution all around

Just like the Nomie app, the Nomie logo has gone through a lot of evolution over the last 4.5 years.
