Beauty - Symmetry/Proportinality Empty
PostSubject: Beauty - Symmetry/Proportinality Beauty - Symmetry/Proportinality EmptySat Jan 05, 2019 9:10 am

What would a continuously ordering organism find attractive?
Space is possibility. Both awe inspiring and terrifying. Order, in this expanse of possibility, would be defined as probability, named matter/energy.
Probability is what man finds beautiful and what he feels as power. Probability is the unfolding of potential within the possible.
What would man call empowering, in the expanding possible, but the probable he can perceive, and by perceiving it he could react to and, perhaps, learn to control, and direct? Freedom in this expanding possible would be both empowering in its certainty, its order, and terrifying in its uncertainty, its chaos.
What inspires man is what is superior to him in order, in probabilities – a matter of degree.
Beauty, being the ordered – symmetrical – fills man with desire, and proportionality, symmetry's pragmatic, adjustment to order/chaos, is the promise... the potential.
This fills man with joy.

Φ
Organically the absence of absolutes means relationships must take form within a fluid, (inter)active cosmos, achieving a higher and/or lower degree of symmetry, and necessarily incorporating functionality as a compromise made to Flux.
Attraction is drawn to symmetry of body parts – of organs – and to how they relate – their functionality within a particular environment – and in relation to an evolved method of self-preservation, and growth; this is what is appreciate as organic proportions, exhibiting fitness and health and most of all resistance to parasites and dis-eases. [ MANifesto: Race – Appearances – Aesthetics – Beauty]  

Φ
Symmetry & Proportionality
Tonal arrangements producing a pleasing melody are examples of patterns relating harmoniously (attraction/repulsion dominated by attraction).
Melody is the experience of vibrations/oscillations (patterns) (inter)acting with minimal dissonance (friction), caused by a conflict in their patterns.
Music is the purest form of symmetry and how patterns (inter)act, because they are not limited and directed by a function, founded on need/suffering – they are not physical.
In organisms the factor of functionality has to be taken into account when judging symmetry. Survival necessities impose upon the organism a functional form where symmetry becomes a matter of proportionality.
For example, the waist/hip ratio, men find attractive in the female form, is a product of reproductive functionality – female sexual specialization – and for men the chest/hip ratio is a product of hunting functionality. Wider hips and lung capacities indicate fitness in child birthing and implies an advantage in the demands of hunting and defending, requiring some form of cardiovascular exertion.
Proportionality can also be used to impress, displaying functionality.

Φ
Exaggerated Proportionality
In the case of self-handicapping, a peacock does not only display the symmetry of its tail, but also the tail’s exaggerated proportions in relation to the rest of the organs.
Disproportionality becomes a sign of impressive fitness, relative to the environmental demands on physical balance and speed – it is unfitness developed to outperform challengers; exhibiting a burden an organism can bear and still survive as an indication of overall potentials. [ MANifesto: Sex]
The organism grows a detrimental to its functionality organ/limb, to signal its virility, condemning it to a short life – selfish genes.
In most species proportional forms – with optimum functionality as the guiding principle – result in balance, speed, flexibility, efficiency of movement (eloquence), or a superiority in the direction of its survival specialization.

Φ
Specialization enhances body-parts to accentuate their functionality, at the cost of its other functions. Unlike music, or other forms of inorganic patterns in congruence, living organisms have to sacrifice perfect symmetry to utility. Symmetry is expressed as proportionality, displaying the individual organism’s functional potential.        

Φ
A fine line between order – expressed as symmetry – and proportionality – expressed by function.
The ordering organism must survive within a fluctuating cosmos, and therefore it makes compromises for the sake of functionality; a sacrifice is the compromise made to change, and the presence of chaos.
If it were a matter of achieving perfect order, or the absolute, an organism, like matter would settles on a fluid sphere, but then it would be as fragile and ephemeral as a soap bubble.

Φ
Functionality is an organic compromises made to Flux. Therefore beauty is characterized by symmetry incorporating functionality as organ proportionality. This is demonstrated by the fitness triggering displays of body/waist proportions, as well as the ratio between fat, and mass.
In women, in particular, the distortional hip/waist ration may indicate physical difficulties in regards to conception and gestation, and disproportional fat/mass ratios may trigger a cessation of their menstrual cycle.
Nature switching off fertility when the female crosses the line into unfitness.
With males this does not seem to be the case, because unfitness is selected out by the female’s choice. His unfit hip/chest ratio, and fat/mass ratio is evaluated intuitively by females that have evolved automatic, and unconscious methods to prevent the male from passing on his genes.  

Φ
Every species has its own ideal symmetry/proportionality, as this is determined by its reproductive and survival niche strategies.
The ideal proportions of each species determined by environment and the method being used to survive within it.
Therefore, the ideal proportions for a lion are different from those of a cheetah.

Φ
Mental (brain) symmetries and proportionalities are more difficult to perceive and to appreciate.
Mind is projection of brain processes, therefore to engage the individual mentally is necessary in order to determine his/her mental qualities.
Through behaviour, demeanour, choices, judgments, and the use of language, the human mind, in particular, displays its mental symmetry and its psychosomatic proportionality.
What applies in regards to physical self-handicapping, also applies to mental self-handicapping: the individual displaying his mental qualities by the degree of exaggeration it can endure, attempting to impress others.
Hyperbole may be used for this effect.
Human male verbal posturing, using hyperbole, can be placed in this category of mental self-handicapping.
The amount of stress the individual can endure is another example: risk taking (bad boy factor), gambling, self-aggrandizing, are all examples of mental self-handicapping.
Females then compare the proportionality of the exaggeration to the overall performance, just as a peacock’s tail is evaluated, by the female, in relation to the body it is attached to; the tails symmetry and proportionality in itself, being a factor… just as the horns of red deer are not only evaluated in relation to its body, but in itself: its form, its symmetry, its shape.
Similarly, mental posturing is evaluated both in relation to actual performance, and in itself, judged by its qualities in relation to its own hyperbolic linguistic displays. In other words, the hyperbole – a lie is always the exaggeration of the truth – is evaluated in relation to reality, but also in itself: how self-consistent and harmonious with its own hyperbolic posturing it remains.
The ‘goal’ here is not to discover the ‘truth,’ or what is most probable, but to evaluate the individual’s performance in relation to reality: how much pretence and how many lies it can endure and still survive.

Symmetry (order) sacrifices its 'perfection, in a world that also includes the unforeseeable (chaos).
Functionality is the relationship of organism and fluctuating environment.
The physical/mental proportions of the organism indicating a hierarchy, manifesting in attitude (psychology), as this is determined by the evolved strategies the organism has evolved to self-preserve and to self-replicate.
Proportional organs, physical/mental form, displays the ideal type for each particular species.

We call this 'fitness' or 'health'.

A pattern, an energy vibration/oscillation - a musical note - is a form of symmetry. It IS symmetry.
Its sequence, tone, rhythm is what determines how it will be interpreted by a concious organism.
This is what types, kinds, categories refer to.  

Proportionality is how these different patterns are shaped by constant (inter)activity.
A cell, an atom, is a organization of two or more patterns.
Their inter-relationships are their proportions, finding balance.
The repulsive force between two patterns - a product of disharmony - counterbalanced by a third.
The third pattern acts as a balancing intermediating.
This is how complex particles are formed.

When the mind perceives a unity it is interpreting the proportions of attraction/repulsion, as these are determined by the participating patterns.
The mind is translating these proportions as a 'unity'.

The deceitful, duplicitous nature of the female, derives from their biological imperative to self-protect. Their sexual selective impulse. The modern female is controlled by mollycoddled notions about personality traits because the idea that something can surpass, or be more attractive than looks, appeals to their whimsical natures of idealism. Females love idealism; the rosy, feel good type. This is why every female loves the “idea” of her white knight, they all have their little school girl romantic in them, but they are put in their place when reality contradicts it with raw physical prowess. Nature is primal, and this naturally perturbs females, frightens them. A delusion or modern mythology, which suggests that this can be overcome by something more indirect, like personality, puts them at ease. At least for the moment.

Even a rare high IQ female will initially find great value and attractiveness in the competence of a male’s intellect, but if he cannot offer resources or superior genetics, this will begin to diminish into discontent on her part that “something more” is missing and she will rationalize it as her need to separate and ‘find herself’, believing she has some special spiritual awareness.

Sex is, for a female, the only form of 'power' she can possess.
The social dimensions are implied, because female power is only effective within the species, and is useless outside of it.
Human female charms will have zero impact on a dog or a cat.

The feminine develops linguistics as a form of social manipulation and exploitation.
Females develop linguistically faster than males....but then they reach a peak some men exceed.
Language is a social tool, like female beauty, only effective within the species, and the group, because one has to learn to decipher symbols according to group conventions.
She both enjoys using and being used by language.
Language is how a man can dominate her mentally, before he dominates her physically - sex, for a human female, goes from the mind towards the body, while her sexuality goes from the body towards the mind; a male's sexuality goes from body to mind, and he expresses it from mind to body - the reverse.

The Roman "νους υγιής εν σώματι υγιεί", 'healthy mind in healthy body' is a masculine attitude.
The mind can only be healthy in a healthy body - attraction, representing genetic health, begins, for a male, with the physical - physical attraction.
For females it begins with mind.

Deceit is important when you are physically inferior.
This corresponds to those tribes who have adopted linguistics as a form of deceit - a feminine strategy.
It's most obvious in how females accentuate their physical appearance - this is a form of deception.

Self-deceit is in play.
A female falls in and out of love, so quickly and easily, that it exposes a shallow evaluation and surrendering to the apparent.
She will never admit that her 'passion' - her 'love' - is founded on materialistic and corporeal instinctive judgements - most don't even know it themselves. Females have little 'self-knowledge', and this makes them more resistant to Nihilism.

They feel things.
They say 'chemistry' to indicate the subconscious judgements they've made.
The body judges automatically, like it defends itself through the autoimmune system and breathes and digests and pumps blood. It requires no input from the brain.
It's the primal physical that goes back to plants and simpler organic life.
These automatic reactions, processes, judgements, the mind experiences as if it was imposed upon it, from without, or as if someone else was involved.
Many women think of 'love/lust' in terms of mystical, magical powers they cannot understand but they can feel and give-into. They lust, but experience it as 'love' - mystifying, purifying the feeling involved.
They experience it spiritually-  where mind/body synthesizes - neurologically.  
That's what 'spirit' alludes to: the nervous system, where language is founded, and where mind/body merge.

Males, usually, can differentiate 'lust' from 'love' or 'eros' from 'agape' - body from mind.
They can differentiate between wanting to 'fuck' a female, and feeling something more like kinship.
