 What is happiness?

  - Jong Bhak

Happiness is a state function of efficient sensing, processing, and predicting our future states. If the state resulted fits well to the information architecture of our internal and external envirome, the object (we) can sense the efficiency that corresponds well to cellular, organismal, societal, and species environment. The internal and external interactions are scientific and most efficient with a minimal amount of energy required. In other words, the degree of happiness depends on the amount of information processing in the environment with a given amount of energy. <o:p></o:p>

If one is living in a highly information demanding environment, he/she requires more energy. If it is not available as ready, the object (he/she) senses the inefficiency and tries to optimize the energy transformation with a struggle. It can cause inaccurate predictions of future events in the complex network of other objects. If overall efficiency of such an object falls below certain threshold, the object senses it to feel unhappy.  <o:p></o:p>

Chemicals can be happy, so can bacteria.<o:p></o:p>
