A British professor is urging us to join in his experiment to see how we can make ourselves more happy.
Why do I feel oddly reluctant? Do you feel the same?
An answer to that, might go a long way to explaining why we aren't as happy as we think we ought to be.
I think it's something to do with identity, and the personal past. We cling on, afraid that we'll fall endlessly if we let go; but maybe we're gripping an anchor on the sea floor, and will float towards life when we open our hands.
