Beauty - UG Krishnamurti

This quote was added by user39826
Beauty is just the framing done by thought and it is cultural. Thought is the frame. Beauty is not in the object, neither is beauty in the beholder's eye. It is thought that creates space and frames whatever is there and calls it beauty. To define beauty as the total absence of the self is just pure romantic hogwash.

Produce compelling evidence proving the golden ratio is the basis of beauty. You can't, because that evidence doesn't exist. It's an interesting idea, but so far as anyone can show, that's all it is.

Typical ignorant pontification. The basis of beauty is the golden ratio. It's there even without observer.
