Beauty and [the Human] Beast

Last week's post on experiencing a bit of wilderness in the moment got me thinking on how we experience beauty.  Surely, what is wilderness and what is beauty share some overlap, Indeed, I think the "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" adage speaks volumes on subjective characteristics in general.  

Jean Kilbourne, one of the speakers at the American Humanist Conference in Denver, has had much to say on the topic of beauty in our culture.  I thought the video below she shared says a lot about how culture and corporate marketing can (and have) completely redefined what we perceive as human beauty.
