      how sad and empty ;_; I feel for you

      sweetheart, no sheep is happy. period. happy people are unique individuals. they are being themselves and living in the moment

      its unhappy people who don't question, who don't think. thats why they are unhappy. because they think things are as good as it gets.

      Without reading anyone elses post:

      Happiness for me is not really the sun shiny day, happy skippy kind of happy cheerfulness I think about as happy alot of the time, happy for me is in the emotional drive I have, and I can't decribe it just like a person can't describe a color to osmeone who is 100&#37; colorblind or a drugie can't describe what being high feels like, but the feeling tells me this:

      It incourages large amount of confidence, and I feel like I could run 1 trillion miles and break through any obsticle, and the past is absolutly meaningless, and the future is just something I'm runing to at about a thousand miles per hour, actually it's more focused on the present moment, I just feel invisable in the present moment.

      After reading a few posts:

      When I'm happy I don't accept everything as true, it's not about whats true and whats false, but I usualy tend to be more positive about things, I don't necissarily beleive that happiness is the persuit of happiness in my life.

      I kind of agree with you sephiroth clock, though bliss is much like the mental state of happiness, I think the spiritual you mean is not of spirits, it's more about yourself, that in it's self is kind of just a sub catogory of mental happiness, it may be happiness of the present moment where you know neither the past or future can touch you.

      I'd also like to share my definition of sadness, sadness is in it's self not bad, it's the problems that cause sadness thats bad, though you can be sad alot and that can be bad, when you dwell to much on your problems, just don't let it build to high without expressing yourself alittle. sadness as an emotion is like loss usualy, you usualy feel like you lost something, I notice it can always be put into terms of losing something.

      I agree!

      I think when a person is in that state of being, they can see possibilities better. They can see possibilities out of a negative situation much easier than some one who is depressed.

      Its like every door is open to you. Which is why there is no fear.

      So much of what has been said seems very true. It is easy to see that. It seems evident.
      Some don't have to seek it. They have "it" But for those who have to work for it must accepts what is...is. Go from there?




      Money buying happiness? - there is a good thread about that exact question floating around this Forum somewhere.
      Can I buy some money so a loved one was not molested, so I could by my friend back from a deadly car accident? So I can feed my addiction! Could someone buy me serenity? Pay Jesus to show me his face, at best buy me the faith to believe there is one? Some one buy me molly, clone me as a sheep\

      No, you can't go back in time. But you can make sure that the rapist is caught, and punished. You can have the means to put the molested person through counseling, and help them through their ordeal. You can help other people who have been molested, or try to make sure that no one has suffered as your loved one has.

      Yes, through money you can end your stressful situations. What's causing you anxiety? You are working long hours? You can't pay off a medical bill? Your crashed your car yesterday? All solved with money.

      Maybe good health is the only happiness that everyone could agree on?


      I should be floating, but I'm weighted by thinking

      Time to pull out the classic: YOU CAN'T BUY LOVE.


      Actually I think you can buy love, indirectly, but it'll be interesting to see how you respond.

      I was reading an interesting article in Time magazine yesterday about love. It said that the responses and collective causes that cause feeling of love are released in the form of chemicals through certain glands in your brain. For example, one of these is dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter that causes feelings of pleasure among other things. Much more is being found out as what causes "love", so it only makes sense to fund this research further to fully find out what causes these reactions and feelings. It's not this magical force.

      Thus; I ccould use this research to theoretically "artificially" enhance the feelings of love that someone experiences to produce the desired effect.

      If I bought their love, solely through offers of money, that wouldn't be free will.

      "I choose to love him because he offered me money."

      But you could argue that that is not love of you as a person, but love of money on her part. Not love of you. Love of what you own.

      Yes.

      I thought that's what you were trying to argue? What is your position?

      I'll tell you soon.

      But do you have an argument on how money can buy that love?

      If "that" love is what you are referring to, was that adequate?

      How is stimulating the feelings without feeling them yourself(love), any different from stimulating the feelings while simultaneously feeling them? You can control the experiment so they won't know, and as I'm sure you've seen, love isn't always mutual anyway.

      There is no tangible difference between the experiment and feeling the emotions of love yourself, and they couldn't tell/know the difference anyway.

      I don't know what you're trying to get at.

      Free will. You haven't addresed it. How can you buy someone into falling in love with you because of who you are. I know you can stimulate feelings of love in yourself, but that isn't the point. It's about the other person feeling love, not you.

      It's that simple.

      I know.

      The point of the research is to learn how to replicate those feelings of love in another person. You are controlling the variables in different situations, so they will feel "love" towards you. They would believe that they are in falling in love with you, but really it's you pulling all the strings. They can't help but fall in love with you.

      And that isn't free will.

      Yes.

      Even though they think it is their own free will, does it make any difference?

      well hypothetically I'm a guy who wants someone to love me entirely genuinely through free will. How can money do this?

      If you're saying that it is not free will which drove the person to love you, in the example I was using, then no.

      Sounds like you had an idea, though. I would like to hear this.

      Basically it doesn't always work; but WIMMINS tend to be attracted to men with power and money making it far far easier to begin a relationship with any woman. From this point making them fall in love is easy, depending on how awesome you are.

      It could be said that it was the money that originally attracted them and so was the underlying cause for them to fall in love with you in the long run.


      Although this has incredibly shakey grounds.


      I think it would work for me, but it probably wouldn't for most people; because the woman would only be with them FOR the money. My point is that the money is a subconscious initial attraction and the love is entirely because of how fucking awesome you are.

      That makes sense, I think you mean a conscious initial attraction though.

      So basically; the money is the initial means to attract women, and your personality makes them fall in love with you. And since love makes one happy, I think we can say money will make you happy(indirectly). This is if you use it and yourself correctly of course.

      So you use money to acquire what you need. I like that.
