"Happiness may be the motivation for all living things be it for the id, ego, or superego. The virtues of Safety and Freedom branch off from Happiness, but they’re inversely proportional to each other. Thus, the vices of Fear and Foolishness, respectably, are based upon perspective. It’s why some find greater happiness in sacrificing themselves for others or their ideals, and others try to find solace in a prison of their own design. Nothing lies truly in the extremes, nor does anything remain constant with time, however. Everything remains within a spectrum. We have (time=x), (happiness=y), and (virtues=z). Square the buggers for their polar opposites and depth. Let our radius squared be our engagement with society, and that’s our sphere of influence. I’ve not thought this out completely, because we haven’t begun to take into account rotation, but I s’pose it’s a start. ^^ Pax."
