>What is beauty? How should people live together?
These are the very why's of a church. (Perhaps the very questions we can only say 42 to....) Beauty is where pain is no longer pain, and people should live together in health.
There is a genetics to aesthetics as well. I have often commented that I see very little difference in what a lot of people call memetics and what I call aesthetics. I'm still not convinced there is anything differentially memetic to sift out... or vice versa....
