Laws of Attraction

Updated on August 29, 2012

I happened to get home from work early today and I was able to watch a little bit of Oprah. Today Oprah had a guest commentator discussing the physical laws of attractiveness. What is attractive? This lady had it down to a science. She was suggesting there were already some premeditate things already determining what we would look for In a mate. Hmm I had never thought about attractiveness as being a science But I guess it could be. After all If i look at someone and I like their looks.. it is as simple as that. There is no measuring or comparing or calculating that takes place..If I enjoy the package I look...

Beauty is in the Eye of the beholder?

This science suggests that a lot of attractiveness has to do with symmetry, particular facial symmetry. Is your face in three equal parts? Does your forehead equal the measurement from the tip of your nose to your mouth? Does your bottom of the nose to your chin also equal out? A study was completed at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland on attractiveness. The Golden rule suggests the ratio of the length of the face to the width of the face should be 1.6. After you get done measuring yourself in the bathroom mirror come back and read he rest of this hub.

Also suggested by the study was that women are more attractive when they are ovulating. So maybe we need to plan our date nights during ovulation? I don't even know when I am ovulating. Ladies make sure you bring protection on these night too, because you know what being extra attractive during you ovulation cycle can lead to! . It sounds like the laws of attractiveness are also following the laws of human nature

Down to the science of it all

Ok so there is some truth to the fact that having an evenly proportioned body and face is makes you attractive to most people. Just look at who we deemed to be attractive in society. Most all of our movie and Television celebrities are evenly proportioned. Even historical and mythical figures we consider to be beautiful or handsome have been evenly proportioned. The Golden Ratio is based on Fibonacci Numbers where every number after the second number is the sum of the previous two numbers computed by adding up numbers. This leads to what is known as the Golden Ratio at 1.6. The Golden Ratio is also found in nature too. Sunflower seeds in their intricate patterns use the golden ratio to form their design. The Golden Ratio has even been applied to architecture

 It is suggested by some other websites the symmetry is being introduced to us through out own DNA.  A Cross section of DNA was taken and applied to the Deacon Matrix.  The Deacon Matrix supports that DNA is symmetrically proportioned.  The Deacon Matrix was also applied to the face, showing how it is symmetrically proportioned with the DNA. Maybe there is more to the science then meet the eye or Phi ;)

The Law of Attraction Attitude

More recently the Law of Attraction also means you can attract a certain goal if you think positive thoughts about it. Of course there is some work involved in obtaining your goal. But if you keep an upbeat attitude the universe will conform around you and "respond" to you. A positive attitude can catapult small changes that lead into bigger ones. Now don't expect big changes right away. Martha Beck, a life coach and columnist at O magazine comments on how the Law of Attraction has to be nurtured. She gives the example that it should be planted like a seed and nurtured. When you take care of yourself and your positive attitude it grows. It is cautioned that your thoughts come from a positive place instead of a negative one. If you make a request of the universe in desperation it may not reply!

      Veeery interesting material!

      Although, I agree that the golden ratio is connected with the perceived beauty of the facial features in question, it still DOES NOT guarantee that a given face will be attractive to everyone.

      There is plenty of women who don’ t find George Clooney (one of the above showed faces) sexually attractive – they will admit he is handsome though.

      Beauty does not equal sex appeal.

      My theory says that attractiveness lies in the eye of the beholder - to paraphrase the popular saying.

      It is confirmed by negative evidence involving a sample of hundreds of thousands of couples: The No Such Couple Paradox.

      the best face of woman i saw was heart shaped. But the sexiest woman had maddening eyes. So sometimes details are more important than overall to get your blood shooting up

      Interesting enough...and you cannot judge a book by it's cover, so why do we judge a person by their looks..Oh I know it helps, but I have found many times the best lookers are the poorest of companions...and sometimes if I like you right away I end up not liking you later...and visa versa...So to know someone takes time as it should...easy come...easy go...Nice hub :O) Hugs G-Ma
