Wonderful... the science of happiness
I inherited my love of radio from my Dad.
I find myself switching on ABC Radio National everyday before any other station. On Saturday the 17th May 2008 I stumbled upon this gem. http://www.abc.net.au/rn/allinthemind/stories/2008/2243006.htm
"The pursuit of happiness is a global obsession. But can science investigate its slippery, subjective nature? What are the metrics—self report, brain activity, or the good deeds we do? Five world leaders in the field join Natasha Mitchell in conversation—neuroscientist Richard Davidson, Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard, Buddhist scholar B. Alan Wallace, psychologist Daniel Gilbert and philosopher David Chalmers."
Considering I missed the end of the segment, the concept of podcasting reinforces itself in the spreading of enlightenment via information and ideas. A segue perhaps to this:
"To create a social business which reduces all suffering by facilitating the access to and dissemination of enlightened information and ideas."
Note: It's coming.
