There are two sides to each of these: Meaning in Life, and Happiness which is the meaning of life. Actually, meaning and happiness are two sides to the same coin. I know of three-sided coins: Heads and tails and the edge of the coin. I have never conceived of a four-sided coin until writing this article.
Does that make me crazy? Probably not. It certainly makes me a little weird. A designation I happily accept. But I digress. (Always wanted to use “But I digress” in a sentence.)
Well, let’s try a four-sided square as in geometry. That might do it. In your mind’s eye, picture a black line square on a piece of white paper. The square, of course has four sides. Without any one of these sides, the square would not be complete. There I have it. Each of the four sides is necessary to the entire square.
