    The appreciation of beauty may be subjective, but the beauty itself is not.

    Some things are irreducible and do not lend themselves to analysis. But, I do believe beauty exists independent of the person experiencing it.

    What you believe contradicts my own beliefs in which everything experienced is dependant on the perception of the person experiencing it. It's debatable.

    It's the old "tree falling in the forest" debate. Does what we perceive exist independent of our perception? Or, in this case, is there some fundamental aspect of beauty that exists beyond subjective judgment?

    I don't think we know anything. That works for me. I suspect. I wonder. But, knowledge? That's like digging for gold, finding a few coins and stopping before you dig deeper and hit the mother-lode.
