Love is Average, Intellect is Average, And so is the Idea of Beauty...?

Believe it or not, Angelina Jolie, is not a figment of the golden ratio.
I've come across, in the Nyx of the night, the golden ration.
 I took it upon myself to take the simple quizzes, of whom I believe to be beautiful, and whom I thought was so-so, at the perfect human face, and brain games.national geographic. ( which are fun, and informative sites. If I might add)
While the men, and women they put forth were pretty, but in my humble opinion, not the extraordinaire beauties, that will stop me in my tracks.

Most of the ones I choosed, never matched up to the societal ruling. My average grade was a D. I was told I need to check on what's hot, and not.
My taste is exquisite! haha
Yet, the ones that were normally chosen, I was baffled. Thinking " this is what they consider beautiful. Whoa. I'm thinking, 'I see men, and women that epitomized these features, almost every day'.
And, if you know me, you know I hate normal. I hate anything that promotes normality. Why would you want something, that everyone can have. Something that everyone presents?
I don't get it!

But enough, about what I like. It's time for me to tape into as to why normalcy is so instinctively accepted.
Well, we'll a few steps back, and deal with part of the problem that's in front of us, now.
Yes that thing that's called... beauty.
As Romantique Innocence uncovers beauty, in the name of beauty. The divine proportion have now evolved me... 
Let's see if the Divine Proportion, is really that Divine?

The Antiquity Of The Golden Ration?
I can't go into a subject, without speaking on its creator, yet, there are only two collectives that can take claim to PHI. Which is easy to guess, but, I'll say it anyway, the Egyptians, and the Greeks.
Surprising, huh? 
However, PHI, is formerly known as the creation of The Greeks. And named after Phidias, a Greek sculptor, painter, and architect.
Whomever was the first to come upon phi, we'll never truly know.
Nonetheless, a series of events of phi, went through a variety of great thinkers, and with great thinkers, comes new ideas.

With Phi in mind, came along with the perception of what is 'beautiful'. 

The Divine proportion didn't become the figment of beauty until, The Renaissance, by the father of accounting, Luca Pacioli, and also with the helped of Leonardo da Vinci illustrations, that never seems to escapes us. 
 You've seen that drawings.
Yeah, that one.
Crito of Alopece"In faith, my opinion is that beauty is to be found quite as well in a horse or an ox or in any number inanimate things. I know, at any rate, that a shield may be beautiful, or a sword, or a spear."Crito goes on to say, beauty is here to serve our needs. While the Golden Proportion doesn't just remain in the humane form, this proportion is in art, architectural, and nature( just a few examples).
The golden ration may esteem in more than one way. So as humans we look for perfection that can not be accomplished, but the need to believe that something average is special. We're all hopeless Don Quixote..

Although, I didn't do the calculations.
I'm sure Rihanna  doe not have the ratio, 

but formerly known as a beauty. 
Has The Divine, Come Down Its Pedestal?
Our human psyche tries its hardest to find the Divine proportion, yet there have been recent studies to challenge this notion.
According to Pamela Pallett and Stephen Link of UC San Diego and Kang Lee of the University of Toronto. 
They don't believe that the golden ration holds, any special qualities, it just averaging from what we see on a regulatory basis.

While Meisner, Gary B, believes the golden ratio, is still indeed special. Because, simply their new calculations still holds the prominent equation, of the golden ratio, however, with a keen observation, notes that their discoveries are close to "relative attractiveness"  ( which is something, I discussed in: Are You In Love With Yourself? )

Which I can agree with
As the Greeks say " No one is good for our family, expect our family."
In my humble opinion, I believe the golden ration is unique, however, not for the reason you, and I have been told. But for merely the usage of its versatility. In other words, what we may know now is primitive, but ironically the golden ration may hold more than, just the simplicity of math, and beauty. ( Just pondering)

Ideal beauty gradual changes in each age group, not instantly, but moves toward an evolving transition. Just as math, and every generation. 
Beauty Is controversial, But why?
"A Modern Venus,
or a Lady of the Present Fashion in the state of nature 1786"
Walpole, Horace
Statistics of beauty have been incessant challenged, constantly.
 Just take a minute, and google: beauty: watch youtube, the endogeneity is a complex matter, that turns people into a state of frenzy.

Beauty has an intrinsic value, of what's in and not, what is useless, and what is prized.
We all know beauty is subjective, and variate through different societies, yet it still boils our blood.

I'm not at all bias. I've read the many comments . Individuals exacerbating their frustrations to our westernized views.
I agree, it's wrong to holds someone value to their physical attributes.....
But then I have to say, who cares what other's think of you. You don't need anyone's approval, but your own. Which I stated many times before. 

One note, I'd like to add before I leave this topic. Whenever beauty is the topic of choice , people tend to get very sensitive. Indiviuals fight more on the topic of vanity, then the rights of human suffering. And whenever, they speak on suffering, it only relates to themselves, Hmm...
Maybe if we let go of this selfishness, then vanity like this, may dissolve.

We can't win, if people are slandering individuals like this >>10 signs that you're ugly
If you contribute to the problem, you can't complain about anything, at all. 
Hatred only comes from hatred.

Beautiful Words
 I read some interesting, and controversial findings by Dr. Satoshi Kanazawa, Dr. Stephen Marquardt, Angela M. Griffin, Judith H. Langlois, and more.
Listening to a variety of views, fairly.
I can't fight people on their opinion. I can only fight them on hypocrisy, and mistreatment.
There are some things I agreed with, and other things I don't agree with at all. But I also found out about my way of thinking of beauty. Things that I didn't like, things that will become vapid to my ideals.
Admittedly, my vanity is shown in Mlle Flamboyant, and Dream Guy, my externals blogs. However, it would also be strange to do profiles, on random people. Very.
( Hint: pictures of celebrities are also subjective. Altering photos will grant the art of illusion of beauty)

But the lingering question still hangs over me, what makes something/person alluring?
Sorry, science cannot answer that question for me. Maybe for some, but not me.  Or the most famous quote, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder (Zeus, do I get tired of hearing that one)

As I am a woman, only of tangible words. Ah, how I love them. They're like a beautiful woman, with or without make-up. The best woman of them all. Nonetheless, math has never been my forte.
 I'll leave you with my own equation.

As I stated above, I've I never had a taste for, average. So I for sure don't have a taste for average beauty.
In conclusion, we all have something that the next doesn't have.
The golden ratio = average
While we all = Beauty
So together we make perfection
Maybe that's the true equation of the golden ratio..

Special Note
*Arithmetic has never been my strongest point. So if anyone can explain, in plain english the golden ratio to me. You deserve a Nobel Prize.*
