Let's put that one down to poetic licence Big Grin

I'll put beauty down to Oxytocin.

For the lazy ones...




Thank you! I wasn't sure how to put the video up like that. I thought it was hyper like but I guess not.

RE: What is beauty?
Beauty is simply ones perception of another object as pleasing to behold.

Now if a potential mate asks, I'll try to make it more poetic....

RE: What is beauty?
To me beauty is in the simple things in life. It's kind of like the saying, "less is more". The girl who doesn't wear make up, is sweet to everyone and has an innocent charm is more beautiful to me then the status quo "beautiful" girl. Beauty is being able to appreciate all the little things: the bumble bees, savoring the breeze in your hair and the sun shining down on your face, playing with the children, having compassion for your fellow human and treating everyone as a friend, plus so much more! Those are just a few things that describe beauty to me.

“My Nation expects me to be physically harder and mentally stronger than my enemies. If knocked down, I will get back up, every time. I will draw on every remaining ounce of strength to protect my teammates and to accomplish our mission. I am never out of the fight.” - Marcus Luttrell

RE: What is beauty?
I'm an engineer. That means I solve problems. Not problems like, "What is beauty?" As that would fall within the purviews of your conundrums of philosophy. I solve practical problems. For instance, how am I gonna stop some big, mean motherhubbard from tearing me a structurally superfluous new behind? The answer: use a gun. And if that don't work: use more gun. Like this here tripod-mounted, heavy caliber little number designed by me. Built by me. And you'd best hope...

Not pointed at you.

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

Okay, there is more beauty in the world other than just bewbs, I will admit that, and in fact, such beauty can be breathtaking.

I like to research the origins of art, so I found the video very interesting. I love how people are fighting over the existence of god in the comments section. Of course there is the inevitable "atheists are ignorant" comment. Gotta love YouTube.

The speaker has a book entitled The Art Instinct (2010). I'm definitely going to read it when I get done with the current semester.
