Dear Randall,
As you say:

"material advancement" is a key qualifier.  Empirically, more material  
contributes to human happiness only up to a modest point.  Beyond that  
other sources of happiness play a far greater role, and relationships  
with other
people heads the list, with the satisfactions of work that is not  
drudgery close
behind.  I guess that working in science and engineering probably  
contributes significantly
to the happiness of ontologgers. Why else would we devote so much time  
to this site?    (02)
