110. I'm glad you like that idea.

I've been turning it over in my head in my spare minutes over the last couple days, and I feel there is a lot of power there. Of course, it gets into the difficult question of what then is REAL beauty, and what is deception like you say. We're talking about a sort of Ansel Adams beauty, more than b-list hollywood-celeb-with-too-much-make-up beauty.

I like the idea that because on the environmental front, it gives hope, a positive focus, and makes it less of a zero sum game. If, as a lover of environment, I'm seeking a sort of beauty in my life, it stops being about what I'm avoiding and what I'm NOT doing. It becomes about something I am doing, something I am seeking. It promises a hope that we may one day move beyond unforeseen consequences of our actions, and create a real balanced sustainable and beautiful culture.

I think I can find an OP in that as I develop it. And if you like them too, please absolutely make these ideas your own, and present them as such. I have no proprietary claim on them, as I think they are only lightly modified from ideas past philosophers had about beauty...

Thanks for responding!
Nir
