In some ways this relates to my adherance to a kind of "abstract
potlatch" idea. once freely given into the world a work (art, music,
etc) may take on cultural significances un-intended by the maker.
these may also change over time and mean different things to
different eras... the maker's intentions are but a starting point.
i think the idea of "objective beauty" (or substitute "intelligence")
is a dangerous one. i don't think we have enough of it (intelligence)
to speak intelligently of it.
which is perhaps most clearly evident in this post.
