hapiness wont decrease because we are here saying that if it is the truth, in this case, it was the truth since I was born, the world thus won't change it is thus in the possibilities in general, not mine. the reality would have less possibilities. no, hope is in the esperance to have better. it is not in mistery, it is in the lack of anything, knowledge, matter.... we hope to have, we hope to be, we hope in something that is not now and that we don't have now. You beg the question here, because we defined it as fantastic because we define it that science is true, it is probably becaus eyou are so sure of your current belief that for you there is nothing new under the sky, thus a kind of sadness, a monotony about you own universe You do not answer the question, the point was to imagine the view true.
