Humanity is heavily put upon by the problems inherent in our eyesight. Not only can the eyes be fooled, seeing hallucinations, trees that look like monsters, outlines that look like people and generally mistaking things that seem to be there but are not; but also we bring a heavy weight of aesthetics into play.
The lemurs of Madagascar are a case in point. There is a very beautiful looking creature called the Golden Lemur with a main of golden hair. As you may expect the locals think this lemur is special, they love it. There is another that is not as pretty, black with, if I recall, a white line on it and this the locals think is kith to the devil.
The stupidity of giving credence to what is beautiful to look at over what is not, rolls out into all we do. It even infects art where we have been arguing over the standards of beauty of most of the last century. But beauty is just a pattern among many and no indication of merit, inherent value or ethical worth. Not in a person or an object.
