What does beauty mean?
I’m not asking what beauty is, or how you decide something is beautiful. I want to know what it means to you. When you decide something is beautiful, do you feel differently about it? Does it take up a special place in your mind? What do you associate with beauty? Is it always good?
I have this feeling that we place great importance on beauty. What is that importance? Is it justified? Does beauty mean different things to different people? I hope to find out.
