    “Myanmar is an absolutely beautiful country,” an enraptured Jack Dorsey wrote on Twitter last week, after completing 10 days of silent meditation in the impoverished Southeast Asian country. “The people are full of joy and the food is amazing.” The post, part of an 18-tweet thread chronicling Dorsey's recent retreat, was accompanied by various humble images: a temple; a religious statue; a photo of Dorsey, wearing a black tank-top and gym shorts, standing barefoot on a wooden porch. In other tweets, he explained that “Vipassana's singular objective is to hack the deepest layer of the mind and re-program it,” and elucidated the merits of meditation, especially when paired with the Apple Watch's biometric-tracking feature.
