The Endless Pursuit of Happiness
"Happiness is a form of contemplation." Aristotle

Happiness is a form of laziness. Camus said to us to imagine Sisyphus happy. I cannot imagine anything worse. Without wit or unreasonableness, we are hopeless.

What? Since when is being "unreasonable" a virtue?

I am no fan of loaded phrases. Everything is a point of view issue. I like to take everything as case by case and "it depends".

Ultimately this is the only home 7 billion humans have, so I take Dawkins view condemning Plato's idea of "essence" which has lead humans since to chase impossible utopias. I take Sagan's view in his Pale Blue dot, just with more blunt language. This is the only home all 7 billion of us have and both friend and foe alike all take the same ride that begins and ends the same way.

It's more like it's the benefit of absurdity to see how even an endless punishment that life is like in sisyphus's case has a snide joy in looking back at the forces that put him in this place without.

You can spend time worrying about the lacking qualities you may desire, or move existing aware of the coming and going emotions but not attaching significance to those moments of happiness being gone between times they come and go.

I am sure that you're right if I could only understand you.
