Pain is an illusion.

If that's your opinion, then you haven't seen a proper ass kicking.

The beautiful about consensus is relative what amongst different groups.

The consensus amongst different groups of what is beautiful is very relative different.

Different groups at different times have disparate consensus about beauty.

Except that is not necessarily true. There are a few constants about the perception of human physical beauty, such as symmetry.

In a very abstract take on this... beauty is related to ideals and attraction to fertility/health.

Usually asymmetry in physical parts of the body means a malformation and thus, lack of health.

I guess.

fuck

can we maybe fucking agree to not post pictures of mutilated bodies except in the "tools for tools" thread?

i have a few friends that went through episodes like this (yes they looked like that) and I really don't like to be reminded of.

you wouldnt fucking post pain series or other disorders for shock value either. just fucking think before you post next time, ok



anyway back on topic,

How the hell is consensus relative?

can you explain me how the hell it is not?

"Consensus in the English language is defined firstly as unanimous or general agreement; and secondly group solidarity of belief or sentiment."

now, really, think for a little moment. is "unanimous or general agreement" EVER universal? no such thing. it is ALWAYS relative to the group considering the belief.

i don't think there's a word for a universal worldwide belief, it wouldn't be a very useful word either.

and even then, if you insist that consensus be universal (dangerous idea IMO), then still, if somehow you were able to find a belief that is universally shared by everyone, it becomes objective? how's that work? sympathetic magics?

Nonono. I was poking (tongue-in-cheek) fun of the fact that his sentence structure indicated that the concept of consensus ITSELF is relative, not the idea being considered for consensus.

SORRY, JUST GRAMMAR GEEKING. DISREGARD.

  Found this in Academic Search Premier.

 Talking: Smack. By: Dixit, Jay, Psychology Today
Quote
The testosterone in saliva--and stimulation of our highly sensitive lips and tongues--may help trigger sex drive. Men exploit this, using kissing to induce sexual desire in women. Men may also unconsciously use kissing to assess the level of estrogen in a woman's saliva to determine her stage in the ovulation cycle and her fertility.

* TASTE TEST

Men are more likely than women to Initiate wet, open-mouthed, saliva-exchanging tongue kissing--since their senses of taste and smell are less acute, they need bigger, sloppier samples to gather enough information to assess compatibility.

* READ MY LIPS

The lips are nature's mood ring: They flush darker when a person is amused, signaling receptivity. Men are attracted to women with naturally large lips. which signal arousal and openness. Since lip plumpness peaks at age 14 in females, full lips also connote youth and good health.

I'll get back to you about the eyes.

The study I mention found eyes to follow the same kind of patters relative to the general hardship measure with the eyes as it did with hips/height etc.  So yes those matter.

True. I don't think mammals are capable of perfect symmetry though, so what happens is our brains interpret perfectly symmetrical faces as artificial. Uncanny valley.
