Eventually, we'll have an article on beauty here. Apparently, flowers are beautiful.

I put the word stub in the article so that it will turn up during a search engine query on "stub". It doesn't hurt the (empty and worthless anyway) article, and it makes them easier to find later.

Ah, that makes sense. Well, "stub" is here now. ;-) -- STG

You know, STG, this is the 7th change on this article so far, and we still haven't managed to put any actual content in. Sad, really. MB

A definition for someone to use as inspiration for an article


1. the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest). 2. a beautiful person, esp. a woman. 3. a beautiful thing, as a work of art or a building. 4. Often, beauties. something that is beautiful in nature or in some natural or artificial environment. 5. an individually pleasing or beautiful quality; grace; charm: a vivid blue area that is the one real beauty of the painting.

Also beauty and love, the philosophy of beauty... hmmmm... what else?

Some research has pointed out that symmetry and golden ratio are major factors in the average person's perception of what beauty is. For example, persons with facial features that are symmetric and follow the golden ratio are more likely to be viewed as beautiful.
