I value a different kind of beauty, that in "Godel, Escher, Bach", or
Bach, or Godel ... maybe even Escher ... but not Picasso and Co. I
appreciate Icon the programming language for its "suspend" and generator
functions, and quantum physics for its strangeness, and cognitive
science, on certain rare occasions, for its elegance. I think that some
Extropian pictures are "Cool". Art in the classical-painting sense,
though, is simply dead to me.
