Professor Timothy Sharp is founder of The Happiness Institute. Sharp believes the key obstacle to happiness, for most people, is "the tyranny of when..." the addictive but destructive belief that "I'll be happy when...I have more money, a bigger house, or a better job." He matter-of-factly talks about how, by creating positivity in the first instance, we're more likely to achieve our goals, and how this idea is supported by valid and reliable scientific studies.
Dr. Happy is later joined in the Utzon Room at the Sydney Opera House by a friend, Mr. Percival, aka vocal artist Darren Percival (director of "ensembleous spontaneous vocalous") who brings inspiration by way of his inventive use of microphones and simple technologies.
Darren Percival (better known as Mr. Percival) is a vocal artist.

"Rara temporum felicitate, ubi sentire quae velis, ut quae sentias dicere licet". Rare the happiness of those times when we can feel what we want and say what we feel." (Tacitus, AD 56-AD 117). We are not in those times. We need the permission of Mr Happy to feel sadness, and we need even his explanations to know if it is called "normal". Is this an exercise in popular suggestion? Is this a sort of "global normalization"? No easy to say. I prefer Spinoza, because in his "Ethics", he tries to demonstrate that each one is each one, singular.
