The Manipulation of Reality

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so beauty can be defined as a physical appearance or an intellectual aptitude.

Beauty defined, makes you think of outward looks. Looks that can be manipulated by make-up, plastic surgery, hair color, or a number of things that give a false impression of the true definition of true external beauty. There are many people in this world who are beautiful by their looks, and every individual has a preference as to what makes a person truly outwardly beautiful. While I may find Johnny Depp the most handsome man alive, my sister may think he’s not, Brad Pitt is her look of choice.

When you put on make-up, straighten and/or color your hair, have plastic surgery, are you truly representing physical beauty or a persona of beauty?

Brains are something that, too, can be manipulated. I can take an IQ test, score 145 and be considered intelligent. My sister can study her brains out, hire tutors, and participate in activities that stimulate her intellect, and still be considered intelligent. I may never study, do homework, or listen in class and pull a C in school, while my sister,has done all the above, pulls an A in school, and she would be considered the brains.

So which is more important? I do not see the difference, they can both be manipulated and calculated to be whatever you choose you want to be.
