Why focus on happiness?

Happiness is “just” a set of genetically encoded valences that did, on average, over the deep time and context sets of our ancestors, tend to lead to their survival long enough to leave enough offspring to lead to us.

Our current contexts are significantly different to anything our ancestors experienced.

Why would we expect “happiness” thus described to be necessarily survivable?

We can’t.

We need to go beyond happiness, yet we cannot entirely ignore happiness.

It is a deeply complex context we find ourselves in.

It demands the deepest levels of responsibility we are capable of.
