Want me to bring up some examples of some not so beautiful things? You'll have to dig deep to find the beauty iln them.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Just because you can provide examples of things you don't find beautiful does not mean they are not beautiful.

No you see... I can bring up some stuff that I'll gurantee you'll find sickening, as will anyone else looking on these forums.

Like being raped or killed is not wrong subjectively?

From the proper perspective, even the sickest things you can come up with are beautiful, because they are a part of existance as a whole. And existance as a whole is a beautiful chaotic dance.

It's all about perspective and point of view... but I'm done. So post whatever you want, I don't really care.

Nah, I wasn't going to bother to point it out... but with that line of logic everything could be ugly no?

As in order for one thing to exist, it deprives something else of existance of expression in regards to what this "something" is.

Just playing devils advocate. :tongue:

It's as beautiful as it is ugly according to the logic being employed here.... I'm just wondering what the point in even saying that everything is beautiful if everything is also equally as ugly.

Yes, if you CHOOSE to adopt the perspective that everything is ugly, you can find the ugliness in everything.

I never said that wasn't true. The whole point is that it's a matter of perspective.

The point is that it is more life-enriching to find the beauty in all things than to find the ugliness in all things.

We all know the glass is both half empty and half full... that's not the point. This thread was meant (the original poster can correct me if I'm wrong...) to be a way of reaching out to those who choose to embrace the beauty in life instead of the ugliness.

:lol: :thumbup: I'm not arguing with you... I'm just pointing it out :tongue:. Everything is subject to perspective... even the words that describes perception, are open to themselves.

sorry, was attempting to add content to a thread that was lacking.

Don't think I achieved anything though.
