Lightbulb ..beauty?

..hm today in one of my classes we discussed the work of Michael Sones (for those of you who don't know who he is, he's a psychotherapist in the UK who is obsessed with the basis that beauty is determined by symmetry. He relates this to the Greek's notion of perfection.)


Of course he has a point in that symmetry does look better than asymmetric features but he's taking it much too far imo.. nobody has perfect symmetrical features on any part of the body, but i mean to go so far as to base a person's beauty and success simply upon body symmetry is insane

.. has anyone else studied his "ideas"?

No, and I'm not going to. Insane seems like a good description

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

.. well as i said im not entirely discounting his theory but he's indicating it value to the extreme imo

.. he goes so far as to state that "beauty is not in the eye of the beholder" simply because he created a notion that as children we were brought up to admire symmetrical things ..

.. idk but i can't fathom his reasoning behind the perception of beauty - it seems illogical to me..


.. and er clinton you say so? - can i please vomit now!!

.. er hun everyone's breast are asymetric to an extent unless they're implants of course - no one has "Perfect" symmetry on any part of their body, its just more noticable on some people
