Happiness is a state of non-contradictory joy --a joy without penalty or guilt, a joy that does not clash with any of your values and does not work for your destruction.

Consequently, to be FOR your own happiness means you are FOR non-contradiction and FOR joy.

And so also, to be AGAINST your own happiness means to be AGAINST non-contradiction and/or AGAINST joy. Note: if you are for non-contradiction but against joy you cannot be happy and vice versa if you are for joy but against non-contradiction you cannot be happy --cannot in the metaphysical sense, that is it is impossible, as impossible as is a square circle.

You can cry and holler and stamp your foot, but it will do no good.

You can rant and rave and clamour your disagreement, but it will do no good.

You can lamment and whine and complain some more, but it still will do no good.

If you want to be happy you have to be FOR non-contradiction AND you have to be FOR joy.

My teleömeter helps you measure the degree to which you are FOR or AGAINST your OWN happiness. It does this by measuring your responses to a predetermined set of questions and compares those responses to a predetermined set of responses that I have proven9 to be representative of the pure responses a particular personality type would exhibit if that type took the test.

As you could probably guess, my teleömeter should fairly easily be able to assess your degree of non-contradiction by measuring the degree of the contradictory in your resposes. This more or less is the case, the non-contradictory measuring is the simple part of the teleömeter.

As to assessing your degree of FORness and AGAINSTness relative to joy is a bit more difficult. Since joy is a fundamental state of consciousness --one that exists when our values are achieved to a significant degree-- it is a difficult thing to measure outside of an actual, individual consciousness, but if "we" hope to succeed here we must figure out a way to do it.

Here is where my teleömeter needs your help.
