Hypothesis: Optimal wellbeing can only be achieved when both internal and external factors for health are considered and optimized for an individual or a group. Psychological factors and physical factors need to be considered and thoroughly investigated. Environments in which people live, work, recreate and relax are probably a causative factor, in a sense understanding the petri dish of life could enable us to optimize conditions for human health and possibly the health of our planet and all life forms.
As we start to investigate the environments we should discover the factors leading to ill health or excellent health.
So I plan to begin with environments both internal and external, physical and psychological and from these deduce factors relevant to wellbeing and so carry the investigations deeper into each factor and how they relate to people primarily.
The fate of the planet is for others to determine but the health of animals, plants, indeed the very food sources humans rely on are most likely intricately linked to our own health.
