Part One

Experiencing Beauty — What is Beautiful and Why
(total time: 36 minutes, 20 seconds)

CD-one, Track #1: Introduction to “What is Beautiful and Why”
This is an explanation of the cast’s exploration of experiencing Beauty. We concluded that Beauty is that which attracts and keeps our attention because it is pleasing to see or hear or smell or taste or feel or think about. This sensual experience often relaxes or stuns the body, and makes the mind pause. We compare experiencing Beauty to a reflex - like when you spontaneously laugh or cry. Furthermore, intentionally taking the time and effort to notice Beauty in the World and in other people can lead to being alert to its frequency in our lives – and to an outlook and attitude that can make living very interesting, pleasant, and meaningful.
