beauty and perception

Posted by I'm the penguin | Posted in | Posted on Sunday, February 06, 2011

must watch video.

got me thinking about math, philosophy and the construction of reality

with this video some could think about how wonderful nature is, for having such a perfect system, just like math. bullshit I say. Nature is not great for having a system like math, we've been fortunate enough to find within our brains a logical system that can for some reason describe the phenomena we percive. And I think beauty really lies there, not in how beautiful can our abstractions of the world be, but in how amazing it is that despite our abstractions we can percive the world and its entropic wonders.
