Happiness Through Understanding.
We live in a world which is dominated by the undeniable forces of physics and chemistry. Much of the happiness to be enjoyed in life comes from understanding who we are and what we desire as it is subject to those two verities. Such as:
Is it colder in winter than in summer? It seems that it is. The universe is a vast space without any heat. It is always seeking whatever heat is available, whether from the sun, a fire, or a warm mammal. Shorter days and less intense sun's rays result in lower temps in winter. To keep warm we must insulate the heat of our bodies from the appetite of the universe. To fail in that results in death from what is called 'exposure'. Exposure to the universal cold. lw 10.2.17
