Wink What makes you happy?
I was feeling kinda down earlier, so I was wondering what you guys (and girls) enjoy in life. What makes you happy? What gives you motivation in life?

I have a passion for insects. I love collecting them, and observeing them, etc. It makes me the most happy person ever. Big Grin

I love math, science, and philosophy. Yes, I'm a huge nerd. Big Grin

I also notice that some of my happiest moments are totally unexpected when I'm just hanging out with friends.

I'm thinking the scientific term is dopamine. Wink
Hadda return for a thumbs-up for the post. Moar from my Gwynnies!

The fact that atheist is the moral position is the fact of my being here happily finding links between dopamine and zero-state; happy facts to the whole crew from my Gwynnies. Big Grin

ART! Photography, painting are high on the list, but I love all kinds. Music and dance. I can dork out completely on stupid stuff no one would look twice at.

Humans fascinate me as well. I believe the term is people watching! I love malls and parks for this reason. Amazing!

Kids make me happy, too.

Dynastes, I hope you are feeling better. I have spent countless hours in mud bogs and on ant hills trying to photograph insects. They are super interesting! They are always so very busy, busier than any other creature I can think of.

Music!

Fortunately, I like both kinds of music, country and western.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

High-minded stuff:

-Science (primarily physics, my area of study)
-Math
-Philosophy

For all of these, the feelings when you really "get" some new concept, and are able to incorporate it into the way you think about the world.

"Low-minded" stuff

-Dogs
-Cars, especially a nice, vigorous drive on a country road, early in the morning when no one else is out yet, or a track day.
-Time with friends
-Crappy pop music
-My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic:
-The card game "Magic: The Gathering"

# Caring for animals - love them, they are not judgemental and live in the now. We can learn a lot from them!
# Making music
# Hiking - best in the mountains or wherever the view is great!

Are you feeling ok now?

RE: What makes you happy?
In no particular order:
  • My daughter
  • Acts of kindness received and given
  • Wonder at nature and the universe
  • Music
  • Beer, wine and malt whisky
  • Intelligence and wit
  • Good food lovingly prepared
I could go on.
