'The subjective perception of existence is assumed to be net positive.' is cumbersome. 'Life is good' is too flat. Is there no better definition?

In addition to linking to the definition of civilzation, I think we should mention explicitly that the concept of civilization is reduced to the exchange of information between conscious individuals. --Michael 10:05, 2 April 2010 (UTC) done --Sysop 05:57, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Earlier comments

The assumption, that civilisation will continue is not a very prophetic one. Why shouldn’t it? It will continue until it will collapse. It looks like it will collapse some day, nevertheless it may take a while. As we are running to a certain extent this civilisation we seem to approve it. Thus to me it appears that for us two questions arise: How can we prevent it form collapsing due to our way of living? Civilisation will change. So which way do we want it to change it in order to improve living conditions and what should can we do to prolong its existence? Or maybe civilisation is endless. Doesn’t seem very probable to me. But for myself it will be endless. So why not assume it?
