Maths Equals Beauty

Updated on March 11, 2018

What is Beauty?

What is physical beauty? Is it in fact skin deep or is that simply a cliché? What I question is why and how does beauty sell. The world of modeling is a major asset to advertisement agencies. We observe beautiful people using such products and we begin to assume that in some miraculous way that there’s a probable chance we’ll look as good as them. Why is it then that the majority of women are surrendering to the world of plastic surgery. Several even go to such drastic measures as to have their clitoris reconstructed and have you heard about the latest? “Stiletto implants” I don’t even want to imagine what that is about.


So how is beauty truly perceived by society? Modern research suggests that people whose facial features are symmetric and proportioned according to the golden ratio are considered more attractive than those whose faces are not. So maybe it all has to do with measurements.If that's the case, then do people who do not have the right measurements get fewer advantages in life? Is that why some struggle, work hard and have such charming personalities. I personally find that an average looking guy is more interesting than a gorgeous stud muffin who sits there and poses all night. Over the years I have come up with my own theory, that average and less than average looking people are more eager to please mentally and physically. Whereas the majority of beautiful people are comfortable, know that they are gorgeous and assume that their beauty will do it for them.


But what happens after all the youth and beauty is gone? What happens after no amount of Botox and facelifts can triumph against the forceful nature of ageing cells? What skills will they have to impress and charm people when for years all they've had to depend on was their beauty. There are many case scenarios, for example, a guy abandons his supermodel girlfriend for the “uglier” girl and the majority are wondering why. Why? Maybe miss “perfect” isn't so eager to please since she’s used to being pleased and admired all her life. Miss “less than perfect” treats her man like a God. When “Miss perfect” just lies in bed and expects her beauty to be enough to satisfy, miss “less than perfect” knows every move in the Kama Sutra book. I mean my assumption could be all wrong and twisted and for my sake, I hope so since I’m guilty and is the first to confess I also have a weakness for beauty. Yes, I do go weak in the knees when I see a hot and sexy guy coming my way but at end of the day, I think what is he going to give me other than his exterior that the average Joe blow isn't. I just force my self to think that underneath all that six pack and good looks is a brittle skeleton like everybody else. Finally I will leave you with one of my favourite quotes by Boona Mohamed 'If the whole world was blind, how many people would you impress?'

      Cut The Bullshit 7 years ago from All Over

      Hi Mcrawford yes you’re right, society and people do place emphasis on beauty thanks to advertising and Hollywood. And the eye does notice beauty, also there are those who are superficial who will never see beyond.

      But I also believe that the eyes don’t see what the heart sees and a man who will see a women’s beauty with his eyes will later see every fat, cellulite, stretch mark, wrinkle as she grows old. But a man who will see her beauty with his heart, his love will grow with every kilo, cellulite, stretch mark and wrinkle that grows on her body in time.

      Nice Hub. Unfortunately most people I feel are superficial. They base too much on looks and body type, etc. Maybe that's why so many relationships fail; if there is not a spiritual or emotional connection. Lust, good looks, physical attraction only lasts so long, what are you to do once you’re left with someone who you no longer desire as much physically, AND have no true intellectual connection with?
