And this is what I am talking about ... No one knows, what good life is and that's why it should be examinated.
There are different degrees of "knowing".
You could say that a high definition recording of a football match has 1000 times the amount of information as 'War and Peace' when you compare them by the amount of space that they take on a computer harddrive.
If you would however ask a literary scholar they would probably say that War and Peace contains much more information than your football match.
The scholar however couldn't give you a measurement.
People learn to drive cars in a very empiric way. They however don't really use metrics to guide their actions when they drive a car but instincts.
If they would they couldn't react in split second decisions when danger comes up.
Of course, there will be difficulties, ... With everything new comes really big problems. I am only saying, that area of self-development is empirical and it's maybe time to get higher ...
If you see that as an important problem, work on it.
