    Default Ideal Beauty

    I want to hear about what represents ideal beauty to you. Something that represents what your deepest recognition of beauty, be it an object, an image, a poem, a person, or an idea.

    If you have some ideas on beauty that you'd like to share, what it is to you, what it means, I'd love to hear it.

    In terms of a physical object, I'm going to go with Japanese Maples...maybe that sounds very strange, but for some reason they stand out as an icon of ideal beauty in my mind.

    I'm selfish. I like beauty that's mine. To be clear, I don't believe that beauty is just a matter of perception, but rather an inherent characteristic. But, perception plays a role in recognition of beauty. Therefore, I particularly enjoy beauty that I am one of the few to recognize.

    I like that moment of attraction to a person when certain attributes that wouldn't normally be considered appealing are all of a sudden revealed to be incredibly beautiful. It's an increadible feeling to feel that attracted to someone. I always feel bad for guys that become insecure about the attractiveness of their wife or girlfriend and concerned about what other people think.

    Somewhere there's another thread that points out that people with a slight deviation from normally appealing characteristics are found more highly appealing than people without much deviation from normal appealing characteristics, but by fewer people.

    Light. Because being able to see beauty is beautiful.

    I find beauty in the abstract, in untouched nature, and in the simplicity of a form that follow function in a streamlined and elegant way.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I have a couple very ingrained ideals of beauty. One is the idea of something being representative of the universe in one of the ways conceptualize it. Sometimes it's a type of universal movement, microscopically chaotic, macroscopically structured. Or, it's something that is whole unto itself except for a flaw, a flaw that makes the whole something more than it could've been otherwise.

    The other ideal I have is the object that is what it does without veneer, something like @Coriolis describes, a form the follows function.

    Crows. The ocean. David Bowie. And, in typical weird INTP fashion, blood that has been spun down into serum is beautiful to me.
