Here's a strange question i've been asking people lately. Which is more beautiful, a (perfectly) straight line or a (perfectly) curved line? After getting an answer, the follow-up question is "Why?"
I've gotten intesting answers so far. My brother liked the curved line, not sure why. I liked the curved line better. I like a perfectly straight line because it has no blemish (thus *perfectly* straight). A curved likes *looks* like it should be not perfect (it isn't straight), yet it is a perfect curve. The contradiciton adds great pleasure.
One friend liked the straight line better simply because the curved line isn't straight. Another liked them both equally because they were each equally beautiful in their own way, yet he he may have liked the curved line better because it's perfection is more complex. And, one other person liked the curved line better. Asked why, he answered probably because so many beautiful things in life are curved, for example, the shore line, and seeing a curve reminds us of that.
Which do you like better? And, mnore importantly, why?
