Hmm . . . well given the fact that happiness is an emotion created by the release of neuro-chemicals in the brain, I would have to say that this emotion has been created over time for a particular reason. Just as love is also neuro-chemicals released in order to mate, rear children, and cohabit.OK, let's consider the flipside: happiness. Does the "actual physical experience" enable the perception of happiness as well or is happiness independent of the physical OU?
All great questions, let me wrap my brain around them before I answeri.e. is actual physical experience (OU) necessary to experience the perception of either suffering or happiness (SU) ? Are happiness and suffering independent of the OU? If they are independent of the OU (per the cliché "happiness is a state of mind"), what role does the OU have in the SU?
