    Ha - if only the first part of what you originally wrote weren't such a plausible world-view. If mere contentment is what people are after then, sure, risking death, enduring months of arduous training and the discomfort of space toilets are probably not worthwhile. It's disquietingly tempting to see contentedness and progress as mutually exclusive with, unfortunately, the latter contributing to the former in the very long run...

    I concur for the most part. I believe progression (in terms of the ground-breaking scientific, literary etc progression) leads in the very long run to some temporary happiness or contentedness for that individual. However, not everyone will make ground-breaking scientific, literary or otherwise discoveries that will alter world culture. I am certainly not one of those people. Nevertheless, without the contentedness of the general public, those who are extraordinarily ordinary, the very slow yet ultimately crucial changes in ourselves and the generations to come cannot move in a positive direction. My intentions in life consist of earning a living doing something I enjoy that will benefit others, falling in love, having a few (precisely 3) babies who I will raise to appreciate life and all it has to offer so that they can be content and happy people who will go on to raise three separate families- and so on and so forth. Their children will come to me for my wise, useless advice, and I will die knowing I contributed to the earth, happy.

    For the purpose of the OP's question, it is much more plausible to perhaps answer that how to live or stay alive is by finding whatever makes you happy, and doing it. Although it is in our biology to embrace the cliché, which is why the most humble of humans are usually the happiest.
