Many make the case that perception is reality. If beauty is perception, and perception is reality, then all is subjective. But the fact that beauty can be and is found at all by anyone at all, suggests some objective dimension. Delving into that “beauty is perception and perception is reality” idea, maybe there’s some significance to the fact that much of what the world calls beauty now is fake to a relatively high degree (example: cosmetic surgery, Photoshopped pictures, other deceptive devices, etc.) We’ve exchanged truth for a lie.
