I'm digging the Idea we can't use happy or happiness as any more we've exhausted its use. Over exhausted I should say. Lots of other things I think we've exhausted in over association ... I think that's how u say it , I ain't Ivy League yet lol smiley face ! Thank s for the post

I think I like the questions that those in the scientific community are asking lately. There is a trend of much deeper thoughts about things among us as a race and I'm very optimistic about where we are headed. Though, there is likely going to be a lot of grief along the way.

I think the major idea that went through my mind as I was listening to him was the fact that happiness can really be a loaded term, very vague and different according to what notions or aspects of happiness we're talking about on top of who's view of happiness we're discussing too. And that divides up even further between what he was discussing regarding being happy now and associating happiness with one's memory of the past based on comparison with other points in time. It actually does kind of create a riddle of sorts. It's intriguing to think about. Thank you for posting this Ros!
