..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 :o

.. has anyone else studied his "ideas"?

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

.. 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.. :o


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

.. 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 :p
