    We present a novel lifelog system concept created to provide a human user with feedback on their conscious and unconscious emotional reactions and encourage the process of self-reflection by looking into an affective mirror. The emotion of the user is deduced from biometric data and enhanced by affective sound analysis and facial expression recognition of faces of the weares conversational partners. These high-level analyses also offer information about the social context of the user. All of the recorded data is processed using a novel modification of the spreading-activation theory which is used to model human-like associative thinking. "(c) 2011 IEEE.
