How shall we find 'Happiness' in the new world that is coming?
The historical question of happiness lies at the heart of the ancient philosophers' quest. This shall 'soon' (within several generations) become an inevitable issue for ALL human beings. Improving technology brings imminent and profound opportunities along with new dangers - can we all become the modern thinkers that will allow us to handle these opportunities to enable our happiness while handling the burden of playing god?
Indeed, science has opened potential possibilities that will be the driving force behind renewed attempts to find an enduring answer. These are considered in some detail (see link), but you shall see, they change everything that the ancient philosophers thought was sensible to consider in attempting to answer this question, the doors to the future are soon to be flung open, nature itself, as we know it, is about to change.
