← Beholding beauty: How it's been studied

Anaximander's Avatar Jump to comment 9 by Anaximander

Symmetry supposedly but I reject the distinction as I do with other proposed absolutes we encounter in society at large.

If it is symmetry, maybe my equation was wrong. Beauty should be proportional to exp(-S), not to exp(S). So that there are more codes that produce less beautiful things. And very few codes produce very beautiful things.
