Someone asked me this question today:
"why is there beauty?"
Interesting question, I thought.
This was my response:
I just asked my daughter how she'd answer your question
and her reply was:
"beauty is food for the soul"
and I responded:
"does this mean so called 'ugliness' is not?"
and she said:
"ugliness is food for thought"
I enjoyed the playfulness of her response
I personally do not think there's anything such as beauty
- rather it's a perception which we create or do not create.
Right now the chat is unfolding with my daughter (she's in London and I'm in South Africa) and she's just said something rather nice:
"anyway, that's why we need beauty, for its positive energy. Coz it's love in another form"
I like that ;)
What do you think?
