Human beauty is something each of us loves.
Ever wondered what it was you were seeing when you looked at that attractive person and felt the emotion of attraction?
Ever wondered just what it is that makes that person attractive?
This clip will explain it.

Billions of dollars, pounds, yen, ruples etc, each year are spent in pursuit of beauty.
This link explains what it means from a scientific nature
It is the answer to what beauty is.

Is this not fascinating stuff?

Very interesting! Thanks for sharing! As an artist I know well about the ratio code 1:1.168! Such as eyes, lips, nose and mouth. You will also notice most people who are on TV have this code. Bill Clinton is a good example of a perfect face.. Yep Clinton has one of those faces that is perfectly coded with 1.168.

Math can explain so much, and within our human set parameters it can lead us down many paths that explain so much.. Not only about human beauty..
But beauty in its many forms!

You know whats great about not being phyisically beatiful? I am so friggin happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I am so intelligent and so creative. I don't spend millions on crap to be more physically beatiful, I am just naturally beautiful within and I can go along my way unmolested.

Glad you like it!
And you're right , it falls into many other caterories besides nature.

Inner beauty cannot be measured.
And means far more than physical beauty.

Here let me embed the video for you here..


I will see if I can find an older video I had about this topic. Its very interesting indeed about the mathematical aspect. This happens with Flowers, landscapes, buildings!! And so much more!

I like the mathematical fractals, and how 3d holograms work too. Sometimes when people think of beauty, they think perfection...

Perfections to some can be beautiful....
Yet to many flaws of perfection, can be equally beautiful!

But in the mathematical sense, its the perfection of the equations..

That made me chuckle
I know what you mean though, i'm the same.

I couldn't give a hoot that i'm not a male model, my gf seems to think i'm ok, but if nobody did, then i think i'd understand.


As for this ratio, whilst very interesting, and i thank the OP for posting it, i think it's total crap. It's just another way that certain people can think they are God's gift to man/woman, whilst realisticly theres a lot more to being beautiful than having the right size body of face.

Everyone has different opinions of what is beautiful, i find little quirks and addities in a woman attractive, not a typical well ratioed body.

How sad it would be if we all took notice in only this theory when choosing a partner, for in 60 years time we'd be deeply dissapointed.

Interesting theory though.

I'm pretty sure what I tend to gravitate to physically speaking doesn't necessarily fall in line with these supposed "perfections". But then, I know I'm a bit eccentric. I'll leave it there.

I really don't feel anything was explained. It sounds like a suggestion of what should be considered as beauty, tinged with a pseudoscientific approach more than an explanation. I know preferences vary with cultures as well.

Mark me heavily skeptical on this.

I don't agree with that video. As I've stated before, the three universal characteristics that make a girl attractive are: big eyes, small noses and small lips. Symmetry could be a reason too, but most people are symmetrical anyway.

Here is an article that agrees exactly with me:

therawness.com...

Now keep in mind that I arrived at my conclusion simply by looking at a ton of pictures, so people would do well to follow my theory(based on observations) on how to achieve those features also.

If you want a summary of that theory, it's basically to eat as little as possible. And if you must eat, eat turkey, fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin A, E and C only. The turkey part is important because your eyes are made of muscles, and I believe protein consumption is the reason for the difference between the Western and Asian eyes(according to wiki, slit-eyes are caused by weak muscles.) Protein(or collagen) also helps your skin from sagging, due to the effects of gravity.

If you were born with small eyes, then I would say eating lots of protein is a must.

Now there seems to be a conflict between big eyes and height, yet until we know more about just what exactly control the nose and height, you have to risk being short, in other to maximize your chances of being cute or beautiful(one can say that you have to stay close to being a baby as much as possible.)

Other things you can do to maximize your look is to avoid the sun and use supplements, doing so will help give a very nice glow to your skin.

That said, my advice only applies to girls. I think it's possible for guys to look good with big noses, though I'm not too sure.

Hey Dragonsmusic! Here is what I found to throw into the discussion here..
Its about Harmony Phi, 1.618 the number expressed in the OP.

The Golden Ratio is represented numerically as 1:1.618 and the number 1.618 has been given the name Phi. It is a constant found throughout nature and is beautifully revealed in the shape of the nautilus shell, the shape of the human ear, in spiral galaxies and even in the rhythm of our own heartbeat its shape has natural appeal to us. It resonates throughout creation connecting us to the universe and to each other.



True beauty and how we see others is a very person topic to each person that will read or research this. I can only offer the artistic side of what I know about such things.

Beauty can be so many things physically for so many people!!

Heres one for fun that will tie beauty into religion...


And now more to topic is the Human body ratio.



The Golden Ratio, plants and the micro world!


Thats just a few more things that this topic can lead into..
So in ending I can say physical beauty is a person thing, but you mind find that the same math that makes you up.. Will in some way connect to those you find yourself attracted too!

It would be a very plain world if we all liked the same thing! It would be like a world full of clones, and we where all the same physically!
NO this universe is so diverse and wonderful, and most of us, God willing can find something beautiful in this world and cherish it.

Music, love, painting, dancing, science, religion, personal choice!


Enjoy

It's an interesting concept that I'm familliar with anyway, but for me there are too many variables....how we feel, how we've learned to perceive people, what our memories and associations are, for it to be simply a matter or proportion. I know from my experience that I have been massively attracted to people who others would consider pot ugly, but there was just something about them that pushed all the right buttons for me. But then I like quirky. And it's more about how the essence of someone manifests in their behaviour that makes them gorgeous to me. I like essence...and passion and intelligence and perception, and none of those can be measured physically.

Beautiful can be really boring, and sometimes lulls the beautiful person into a false sense of not needing to do anything else than be beautiful....I've encountered that. Beautiful but dull. Not even got the lights on.


And as a mostly turnip girl myself, when we make the effort to clean up and do the glam thing....oh god do we get attention!!

Symmetry is actually the real reason for physical beauty. If you could cut a person's face into two halves and they are propotionate to one another, never exact, you have beautiful features when they are together. I don't know about all of this "code" stuff.

I'm going to comment before watching the video, so here goes;
Why do we pursue beauty? Beauty represents health and our reproductive urge is to produce healthy children to help ensure their survivability. This is true even in animals, look at the displays of color given by birds and certain insects.
Even the pursuit of money is for what? To get a more beautiful mate, house, car, whatever.
Beauty is also what would consider to be perfection and simply to be close to such gives us feeling of well-being.
Not very complicated at all.
The real challenge for humans is to find the beauty in all things, one of the few things that sets us apart from animals.
I'm ugly but that's ok because I can make beautiful things, that's how I compensate.

Thanks for putting that in there.
Beauty is not always perfection indeed!

I think symmetry refers to the size and shape of each eye, that's pretty much the only thing I've been able to notice as non-symmetrical.
