The field of computational aesthetics is making very interesting inroads with regard to understanding the basic formulation of aesthetics beauty – also to a certain degree why we find certain patterns pleasing. And this is the most interesting question - why do we as humans find certain form combinations and patterns beautiful? – and does that attraction to beauty allow us to understand the world around us?http://spacecollective.org/TheLuxuryofProtest/5137/Visualizing-MathematicsNew comment on: Visualizing Mathematics

<br />
There is no doubt in my mind that beauty communicates nor that it is open to analytical investigation. In fact it is highly likely that as we progress as a civilization, arts and sciences will converge into a new form of aesthetics which could potentially yield new forms of comprehension and meaning extraction.<br />
Fascinating project you have put together, looking forward. thanks<br />
