Human Beauty

Human beauty has a generic quality. Psychologists have measured the symmetry of faces and demonstrated the typicality of attractiveness, and historians have tracked the varying desirability of body shapes across time—but what anyone actually loves is the flaw, the divergence from type, the particular. But it may be a social thing. More conformist characters prefer the type. Art should be non-generic.
