The link to the course is in the article, but I will post it here too: https://www.coursera.org/learn/the-science-of-well-being .

It looks like it's also available on YouTube (if you don't want to register on Coursera):


Correction: This YouTube link is just the first lecture of the course.

The world is a vast meaningless cruel existence that cares nothing about your accomplishments, trials, laments and accomplishments. The important thing is to set an endless string of arbitrary goals to distract yourself until you die.

I care about you and your delightful sense of sarcasm, friend.

That’s a great summary of what life is about in the first world. If you think that’s depressing, you’re taking it to literally.

That's a rather negative take. There are more upbeat ways to view it also.

I mostly agree, but we really have no way of telling if its meaningless or not.

What do you mean by meaningless? :)

Lol, as if the unhappy bastards at Yale have any business teaching happiness.

Look up how many of their students are on SSRI’s

As they say, "Those who can't do, teach".
