Many things were clarified very well, thank you for applying the time and energy in the effort.

I can easily imagine the ongoing life harmony that might exist if insight and understanding of all the interrelationships within life were acknowledged and respected by Buddhists; by all peoples of all religions, for that matter.

I am failing, however, to see what hope can be promised for 'total happiness', if the definition of it includes peace (absolute absence of negativity from inside or outside). it would seem that even if the earth were demolished and all humans/life forms were converted to pure energy, the assaults by 'unenlightened' would continue to interfere with the peace-seeking 'enlightened' ones; the enlightened would forever continue to be at the mercies of those who are either ignorant of or choose to ignore the influence they have on others. It seems to me the perpetuation of adversities would make the potential for 'happiness' a finite thing, dependent on the presence/absence of conflict, if there is no set time/space when all beings can be expected to co-exist in total recognition of - and respect for - others around them.
