Event description

Description

One of the puzzling facts about humans is that even as we learn to parse apart subatomic particles, send research devices beyond Pluto’s orbit, and measure gravitational waves, we still struggle with many of the same basic questions our ancient forebears did. How do we become happy? Why are we here? Why must Life change so quickly?

This talk attempts to use the world’s oldest written story to present a framework for understanding our happiness levers, especially in the context of the many rapidly advancing changes in Gadgets, Communication, Medicine, and Parahuman technology. A dual-process model of happiness and meaning is presented as a
lens to help people anticipate, and influence, how the technological age may impact their wellbeing.
