Good thoughts Nick.

The idea that is lurking in the background is this ideal of being happy regardless of any external circumstance. That sounded really attractive to me. I tried it, haha. Still do, occasionally. But … regardless of whether it might work or not … it still would feel wrong.

I like your display metaphor. That drives home the idea that it is more some kind of report/indicator of how we’re doing, than something that we can influence directly.
