The Desire for Beauty
We all want something beautiful", Says Mr. Jones in a Counting Crows song. It is a deep human desire to experience and to acquire beautiful objects. The objects we can possess that are beautiful are even more coveted when they are part of our own creation.
To be able to create beautiful objects that are desired by others is another deep and meaningful human instinct that can drive us and satisfy us. The creative process that has us as artists or hobbyists making nice things is that are admired by others is one of the schemas that deliver that joie de vivre ( Joy of Life).
Indeed to be able to create something beautiful is the meaning of life, or at least one of them. This skill is so important to humanity's living that it is taught in schools and heralded in our culture. Along with being a great leader, being a creative is just as crucial and respected by people.
