In the movie Virtuosity which featured transhumanist and extropian ideas
such as nanotechnology also included a computer where the designs would
evolve by biofeedback. The example they showed was of a woman who would
become more and more attractive by evolving according to the person's
biofeedback. How easily could this form of evolving art be accomplished and
also is there a personal absolute asthetic point? Can something evolve and
become more attractive forever or is their a hard limit on how attractive
something can be? And if there is a hard limit what would be it's reaction
on you? Incapacitating?
