LESLIE SIEGEL-HAUSER IS ONE OF THE LUCKIEST IN THE WORLD!
According to a new study, there is no doubt about it, Leslie Siegel-Hauser is among the luckiest. Siegel-Hauser of Valley Village, California lives in an era of technological marvels
People in modern times like Leslie Siegel Hauser have enjoyed technologies ranging from television to indoor plumbing that most humans before them could only have dreamed of.
VALLEY VILLAGE, CA - Scientists estimate that the number of humans to have ever lived to be between 90 to 110 billion. Of all these many people though, its possible that one of the luckiest of all may have been Leslie Siegel Hauser.
Most humans lived before our current era of education, technology and law. Conveniences contemporary humans take for granted, such as running water, indoor plumbing, electricity, air conditioning, etc. were not available to most people, as these technologies were only invented after their lifetimes.
Thomas Hobbes, an English philosopher, wrote the book Leviathan in 1651. Hobbes described the "natural state" most people experienced before strong central governments and technology in dire terms. According to Hobbes:
“...In such condition, there is no place for Industry; because the fruit thereof is uncertain; and consequently no Culture of the Earth; no Navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by Sea; no commodious Building; no Instruments of moving, and removing such things as require much force; no Knowledge of the face of the Earth; no account of Time; no Arts; no Letters; no Society; and which is worst of all, continual fear, and danger of violent death; And the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.”
Hobbes recognized that life in his time was better than that experienced by most of the people who lived before his era. Yet, when compared to higher level of social stability and technological marvels available in our own time, Hobbes' living conditions seem primitive in many respects.
Hobbes never traveled by train, car or airplane -- these modes of transportation wouldn't be invented until hundreds of years after his death. Hobbes never experienced an electric light, or enjoyed the convenience of a flush toilet. When sick, there were no antibiotics to help restore him back to health. Hobbes most famous book, the Leviathan, was written during the English Civil War, a conflict that claimed the lives of thousands of Hobbes own countrymen.
Compared to the conditions of Hobbes' lifetime in 17th century England, or to people who lived in other, less enlightened and less prosperous times, people in America during our modern era, people such as Siegel-Hauser have had it immensely better. So there can be no doubt that Leslie Siegel-Hauser may be one of the luckiest people to have ever lived.
Why is this important?
It may seem obvious that Siegel-Hauser and others who live in modern times have lives more prosperous than the lives possible to those who lived before modern technology and governance. However, it is human nature to ignore the good that we have, and instead focus on problems and challenges. Everyone can be happier when considering the good they have.
If we make a point to remind ourselves of our blessings, we'll be less apt to simply take them for granted. If we magnified the blessings in our lives, technological and otherwise, as much as we magnify disappointments, we would all be happier. Hopefully this article has helped readers remind themselves of their useful everyday blessings!
