My Happiness Equilibrium Theory..What Do You Guys
Hey people, I have a theory about Happiness which I will describe in a moment, I'd really like some comments on it please.
-There is only a certain amount of happiness put on this earth and it must be shared around
-This happiness must constantly be in equilibrium so if someone is ecstatically happy, someone somewhere must be equally sad
-If this is true and you are sad you can take a little pleasure in the thought that someone is happy, which won't solve your problems but could make you feel a little happier
-vice versa if you are happy someone somewhere is sad so this will make you sadder and the balance will shift.
What do you people think?

To tell you the truth. That probably makes the best sense I have heard in a while from someone. And I don't think I can find a flaw to that.

Good Job!

Im glad you like it. As I see it, it happens all the time, look at work or school, some people are happy and some are sad in pretty much equal measures which made me think it would work worldwide, if you look into the press its true, some people are sad and others are happy. And thats why I believe it

I think she meant in the whole world. I don't think she meant that the happyness and such is equal withing the persons area, but equal around the world.

I see where you are coming from Decius but when you look at yourself wouldn't you say that there is 1 feeling that is there more than the other, for instance if you are cool then that makes you happy, you may be sad because of family troubles but the happiness is more present than the sadness so to speak.
As for the abuse stuff, well then you have to think back on the world wide scale and know that somewhere there are happy people even if there aren't any around you.
In my eyes its a tough balance but i think it holds up.

Causality states that everything happens for a reason so therefore something must happen for the happiness receiver to become happy, but this could be anything, receiving a letter from a friend, winning the lottery, anything could happen. If you think about it things happen all the time so on the grand scale of things, worldwide whats to say there isnt a balance, i for 1 believe there is because it makes so much sense.

I have always thought that happiness comes from what you do in your day to day life. If you are a up beat person, your energy will spread to other people who have contact with you and continue for them. Life is what you make of it so in my opinion everyone should be happy and not let every little thing that happens to them bring them down. Ultimately no one cares if your miserable so you might as well be happy.

good theory i like it
but if there is only a certain amount of happiness does that mean that if half of the people on earth die all the people that stay will become much happier ?

If half of the population died then a equlibrium would be established between the survivors. For example, if the dying pop consists of terrorists, than for a while the other half will be happy, but knew disputes will arise resulting in more terrorists.

I Believe that happiness is a state of mind, you choose to be happy or unhappy! You do not need anything to be happy unless you believe that you need it to be happy. I think the equilibrium theory is an attempt to blame your unhappines on your surroundings; people always tend to blame there situation, which they controll, on their surroundings. For example: my sister wanted to be more creative and her solution was to move to another surrounding which is more stimulating, blaming her lack of creativity on her current situation which she easily controlled. People dont want to accept their mistakes and thus blame it on something else. This applys to hapiness completely, people believe their surroundings impact their happiness! (sorry went a bit off the topic there)
