What is happiness?

For all that science has achieved 
in the field of materialism,
are the peoples of the world happy?
They may find sensual pleasures off and on,
but in their heart of hearts 
they are not happy
when they realize what has happened,
what is happening
and what may happen next.
Why? 
This is because, 
while man has mastery over matter,
he is still lacking in mastery over his mind.
