Beauty Moves Us

Posted by

The sight of something lovely doesn't just bring us pleasure, it physically motivates us. Writing in the New York Times, Lance Hosey points to brain scan studies that "reveal that the sight of an attractive product can trigger the part of the motor cerebellum that governs hand movement. Instinctively, we reach out for attractive things; beauty literally moves us."

It is the desire for beauty - not cataclysms or migrations, wars or empires, kings or prophets - that drives us and shapes us. What moves the world is the same time that moves each of us.
