EYE CANDY?

Absolute Beauty – We’ve all heard that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Do you agree? is all beauty contingent on a subjective point of view?


Is all beauty subjective? Nope, don’t think so. If there is one thing about which human societies have been consistently in agreement, it’s beauty. Human beauty. Natural beauty. Flowers. Sunshine. Woman, men, children.

Does this mean personal feelings can’t override our hard-wired reactions? If that were true, only beautiful people would find love … and that is obviously untrue.

Incontestable. Beautiful sunrise. I still sleep late and miss most of them.

We don’t only marry pretty people. We don’t inhabit only beautiful places. I suppose if all things were equal, we would happily choose to live amidst harmony and beauty in preference to ugliness and discord.

Why not?

Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be?

  1. St. Augustine said that beauty opens the eye to the heart. He was making an argument that the beauty of the world teaches us to love the beauty of God, natural beauty is but a glimpse of Heaven.

  2. I like looking at beautiful women. My hormones are still okay. But attraction beyond the facial beauty is another matter.

    1. Right you are. I think we are have an innate sense of balance, color — what is inherently pleasing to the human eye. We can step outside that hard-wired stuff by choice — free will exists — but I suspect we are most comfortable with people and things which “feel right” and natural.
