Quality is a word which includes durability, enjoyment and satisfaction. Most of us work an entire life in order to get sufficient money to be able to buy what we need even if there is no guarantee that this will increase our quality of life.
When we talk about happiness we talk about inner feelings, about bodily sensations as if those two things mean the same. If we ananlyse it, we recognize that we can feel happy wether the body is in shape or not. Just as with the money, having a body in shape goes a long way towards happiness and qualify of life. What do we need a body for? Is the most important function to use it to feel extreme sensations? Is it to stuff it full with food, no matter how delicious, thereby slowly killing it while enjoying some culinary moments.
In reality life itself, and having a body, has everything to do with communication. I think we can agree upon that it is difficult to communicate without a body. We have the most advanced communication gadgets smartphones, tablets and cameras. We can communicate across the world in seconds but the message quality is sometimes pathetically poor. A selfie in front of a famous monument. Some friends smiling even if they feel miserable. Rapid phonecalls to say that you will be late or to reveal the latest gossip. Does improved communication improve quality of life? What would happen if we care more about each other than our appearance on a selfie?
Quality is mathematically calculated how long a product should last before it must break. Cars, refrigerators, TV sets, shoes etc. The market must survive and that means that things must break to accomplish resale to the same customers. In the meantime we are on the treadmill destroying our bodies day by day in order to one day have a good life as happy pensioners. Glum outline don’t you think? We even accept that the quality of health care is lousy, intending to fix everything with pills, to make the farmaceutical industry rich, and we increase the need for those pills by eating unhealthy food from the food industry. Who’s to blame? We are. There are very few attempts to sell stuff that we refuse to buy.
