Law of conservation...

...of happiness, stating: Happiness can neither be created nor destroyed. The total amount of happiness in this world, is a constant.

Sending stuff like this as an SMS is bound to generate some interesting comments: I'd like to quote 2 such replies...

1) The amount of happiness is not a constant but a constantly decreasing entity.... Something like fossil fuels - non-renewable and depleting... soon!

2) Depends on the situation. Under happier circumstances, it would appear that the amount of happiness is increasing every second!

Hmm... interesting...

    Most of you seem to have misunderstood... I am talking about happiness in the whole world, and not about individual happiness...

    Law of conservation of happiness, if true, would it mean this?

    For one to be more happy, some poor bloke has to be less happy?

    Ya even I agree with the last comment. How can one's happiness be at stake if someone else is happy. You mean at all times, in some part of the world there are people suffering. And they are sad because happiness is with someone else in some other part of the world. Its sad if the law of conservation of happiness is really true ;)

    Prashant, Pratibha - What I posted, is just my opinion. It may be true, it may be false. One is happy that he/she got something he/she wanted. Someone else might have wanted the same thing and not got it, so he/she is unhappy. Sometimes, one is happy for no apparent reason. There are also times when one is sad for no apparent reason. So, I guess it all evens out in the entire scheme of things in this world... Its not that one needs to be sad for someone else to be happy... but the other way around. Its not the cause, but it might be like (after)effect.
