Wellbeing Quantified - The Balance between Science & Spirituality /Mysticism.
Wellbeing ~ f ( Physiology, Emotions, Feelings, Thoughts, Habits, and Performance).
From Neuroscience to Philosophy to Mysticism
objective well-being is often assessed using indicators that measure aspects of education, physical and built environment, community, and economy.
This approach tends to capture a societal rather than an individual perspective on well-being that is based on material, tangible and quantitative indicators.
Subjective well-being is characterized by the individual’s internal subjective assessment, based on cognitive judgments and affective reactions, of their own life as a whole.
There are various sub-dimensions that investigators consider within the domain of subjective well-being. These include psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of well-being.
Being available to the infinite wisdom of the cosmos / GOD is the only possible way to experience life in its entirety. Giving expression to the creator within.
I am not the mind, the intellect, the ego or the memory,
I am not the ears, the skin, the nose or the eyes,
I am not space, not earth, not fire, water or wind,
I am not the breath, nor the five elements,
I am not matter, nor the 5 sheaths of consciousness
Nor am I the speech, the hands, or the feet,
There is no like or dislike in me, no greed or delusion,
I know not pride or jealousy,
I have no duty, no desire for wealth, lust or liberation,
No virtue or vice, no pleasure or pain,
I need no mantras, no pilgrimage, no scriptures or rituals,
I am not the experienced, nor the experience itself,
[I am the form of consciousness and bliss,
I am the eternal Shiva...] * 4

The Genuine Progress Indicator (GPI) is a metric that begins with the Gross Domestic Product, adds “goods” not counted such as child and elder care, volunteerism, subtracts “bads” such as oil spills, crime (according to Jeffrey Sachs, some governments now include prostitution and drug trade in GDP) and evens out long term investment spending, such as roads and sewage systems. In the U.S., Maryland’s legislature is currently using the GPI (http://dnr.maryland.gov/mdgpi/Pages/default.aspx).
The Sustainable Development Goals are an evolving set of indicators developed by
the United Nations to measure sustainable development. To date, they are composed
of 232 indicators, predominantly objective, although there has been discussion of
incorporating subjective well-being indicators but does not yet. The indicator set encompasses 17 areas: poverty, hunger, health, education, gender equality, water, energy, work & economy, industry & infrastructure, inequality, cities & communities, consumption & production, climate, fisheries (life below water), biodiversity (life on land), peace, and partnerships.

Blood work data, right from glucose level to cholesterol levels, to Heart Rate variability and 85 other factors that a typical full body blood work gives is a good proxy to measure the physiological state of our body
Energy in Motion or sum state of the neuromodulators in your body
verbal / congnitive term for the emotional state
Cognizance of the boases of the lenses through which see the world.
This is the first step in action. The Hokygrail of human experience is action. Forming the right habits to optimise for all the wellbeing nodes.
Optimizing for financial wellbeing by being congnisant of the other 5 well-being nodes and use the ultradian rhythms effectively.
The Chinese state has come up with a social credit system whose algorithm is opaque and is being implemented with an iron fist. Most governments across the globe are embarking on such missions, even the most progressive "democracies". Our vision is to create an open-source protocol to measure well-being at an individual level (subjective wellbeing) and use it to replace the other opaque scoring system, credit scores. This will become a base for community banking empowering communities to start lending to individuals knowing the risk involved!
yes. We understand the cynicism and the task head. You can either join us and shape the way your wellbeing is measured or you can watch your state give you a rating and you would have no say in it. Except for voting once a year for some dumb politician to make that decision on your behalf.

We are part of TheThirdPillar network https://thethirdpillar.club/ - a non profit research foundation which creates open source protocols with data ownership nd progressive decentralisation as its key tenets
yes, but someone has to do it, right?
You can join our complex problem solving / mental model to mathematical model creation community to work on this protocol
The community managers within TheThirdPillar network https://thethirdpillar.club/ has been trying these on themselves and we have seen a great improvement in terms of personal wellbeing.
It can. Where people can invest in other people by looking at the wellbeing score as it gives the complete risk profile right from physiology to performance. You can read more about it here: https://mirror.xyz/0xed95C841068a9feF0CE2D7F527829A231626447D/moDqkwxr6hBSY6h4bCRZmysPrEw7g2cv_L67TNSJ4B4
