Bio basis of aesthetics

	I was thinking about the article that discussed the possibilty of
aesthetics being related to clarity.  If that were true, wouldn't Monet and
all of his Impressionist friends be no-names?  Or would their style of art
be clear in some way to the brain?

	Someone else suggested consistency, and someone said that one person's
art is another litter-box liner.  Perhaps it is possible that each of these
is right.  Perhaps one person is biologically 'wired' for one quality while
another is 'wired' for a different quality.

	Perhaps.

	Anyway, it's interesting.
