Pursuit of Happiness VI

Synthetic happiness vs Natural happiness.





People roll an eye on synthetically happy people. So why is the case that synthetic happiness is devalued to a lower status? One reason is 'economic interest'. Allowing people happy won't drive the market.


Do debunk the perception experiments were conducted to find out whether synthetic people are happy for 'real'. Looks like amnesiac people experiment supports that.
