Appreciating Beauty.
    #3081653 - 09/02/04 08:58 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Do you believe someone must be intelligent to properly admire beauty?
Do you think being intelligent may cause you to overly analyze and see beauty where none exists?
Who can appreciate beauty more?
Must you be exposed to something truly ugly to see beauty for what it's truly worth?

OKAY

i AM evyer drlunk right now, so please don't skin me alive for what I am about ot say.


I am most attracted to people who are adrogynous.

I love both male and female equally...and people who could appear attractive as either sex really turn me the hell on.

Adrogynous people kickass most plainly..

Beauty is rarely sex.
Sex is rarely beauty.
However, when they do come together there are few things more beautiful.
Sex can be one the ugliest things as well.

its about awareness....it's in the eye of the beholder.
it exists if you feel that it does.
anyone can appreciate beauty to the fullest extent possible if they so choose.
i dont think one must be exposed to something "truly ugly" to appreciate beauty....some would say there is beauty in seemingly ugly things. its just perception.

LOL I love androgynous too, the skinny type. Once my girlfriends and I were at a coffee house (and I don't normally have a "type" that I'm attracted to) and I pointed to this person, tall, skinny, young, middlish length blond hair, androgynous clothes; and I said "OK that guy is WAY fucking hot". It turned out to be a girl and man, I got so much shit for that. :frown:  Have you seen Boys don't cry? Hillary Swank in that turns me on.  :blush:

Life has hideous as well as breathtakingly gorgeous. All of it together are beautiful.  I think intelligence and awareness does have something to do with perceiving beauty. Although, animals, plants, nature, and children for instance, who aren't necessarily aware of beauty, are considered by most "intellivent" adults to BE the most beautiful of all. :heart:

The Good Specimen and "Growing-Tip Statistics"

Abraham Maslow [my favorite psychologist] discovered in exploratory investigations that self-actualizing people, that is, psychologically healthy, psychologically "superior" people are better cognizers and percievers. This may be true even at the sensory level itself; for example, it would not surprise me if they turned out to be more acute about differentiating fine hue differences, etc.
What this kind of research design means is a change in our conception of statistics, and especially of sampling theory.
What I am frankly espousing here is what I have been calling "growing-tip statistics," taking my title from the fact that it is at the growing tip of the plant that the greatest genetic action takes place. As the youngsters say, "That's where the action is."
If I ask the question, "Of what are human beings capable?" I put the question to this small and selected superior group rather than to the whole of the population. I think that the main reason that hedonistic value theories and ethical theories have failed throughout history has been that the philosophers have locked in pathologically motivated pleasures with healthily motivated pleasures and struck an average of what amounts to indiscriminately sick and healthy, indiscriminately good and bad specimens, good and bad choosers, biologically sound and biologically unsound specimens.
