Beauty is dangerous--that's why there's so much energy put into making beauty seem shallow and something to be achieved by following some higher-ups rules.

Real beauty makes a person in its presence feel "This moment here is enough," or even "This life is enough because sometimes there's beauty."

Many higher-ups are dependent on it seeming to many people that nothing is ever enough, on making people in general feel that they have to try to feel an unfillable hole of deficiency in themselves and the world.

Actual beauty can make that deficiency seem wrong, silly, irrelevant. Here we all are, and sometimes, near us and sometimes through us, beauty happens.

Higher ups are irrelevant then, as higher ups. As humans, they could join the awe.
