    I realise that the link Androgynus posted above takes us to an extensively long text that may fluster some readers. As the message David Pearce, the author of the piece, is so important I have included some videos of Pearce summarising his hypothesis below.

    Watching the video above I realise the advantage of happiness in an evolutionary sense.

    IMO happy people are the people that move us forward in a positive way, being more positive with a can do attitude.

    Negative people...most of us...have some of our brain centers closed off as a damage limitation exercise so we don't enhance the negative.

    Imagine what a world we could create with more positivity.

    Yes and I think I have said it before. What makes us happy is finding a 'positive 'purpose' in life.


    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    While creating another thread, The Brain, I came across a video that I feel would be appropriate for this thread as it points out the chemical reactions that lead to our emotions.

    Just watched an amazing documentary film that so fits this thread. If you like graphic design you will love this.

    The film starts with a caption which says, "This film will not make you happy"
