What is your definition of beauty?
I don’t have a “definition” of beauty, it is not a rational thing, but rather something I experience.
It seems that the experience of beauty comes from the mix of genetic, cultural and experiential factors that go to make up the unique beings that we all are, and that the holographic recall mechanisms of our brains “join the dots” on all of that data in the way that is most relevant to the context of our minds in that instant.
Sometimes, the connections so formed have a sublime quality that resonate across multiple domains of experience and being – and this seems to be what we experience as beauty.
It seems it can be triggered by what is seemingly the most insignificant of things, or the most profound – it is almost impossible to consciously predict what is going to trigger it; a falling leaf, a flash of light, a curve (or a girlie set of curves), a sound, an idea.
To me they are like little gems on the journey of life.
