The Elusiveness Of Beauty

  • Philosophers have long tried to understand beauty, the enigmatic, elusive phenomenon that has been a mainstay of poets for centuries.

The Search For The Beauty Center

The brain, according to scientists, has a ‘beauty center’ which works in tandem with the other areas like the pleasure center, memory center, or visual center, with many functions complementing each other.

Beauty, it seems, isn’t a clinical diagnosis of the brain or a mysterious element to be discovered, but is as profound and rich as love.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
