Beyond Strangeness

Beauty In Every Strange Thing

As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

This especially goes for strange things or just about anything in this world that you might find unusual.

You might be asking right now: How is that even possible?

Strange is strange and beauty is beauty. How can something strange become something beautiful?

Well, first things first…

Strange things are mostly created with unknown origins.

Take for example, one of the world’s popular UNESCO heritage sites: the Stonehenge, which is located in the United Kingdom. While there are lots of theories as to who created it and when that person created it, no one really knows its exact origin. All people know about the Stonehenge is that it’s a great source of knowledge when it comes to archaeology, as well as a great source of knowledge when it comes to astronomy.

Strange things are mostly created with unclear purposes.

Take another example, another one of the world’s popular UNESCO heritage items: the Rosetta Stone, which is also located in the United Kingdom. While there are also lots of theories as to who created it and why that person created it, no one really knows its exact purpose. All people know about the Rosetta Stone is that it’s been there since before the 18th century period, as well as since before the Ancient Egyptian period.

The most common trait of those mentioned above? Beauty.

And we’re not just talking about a weird kind of beauty here, ones that only strange things can give off – we’re talking about a magnificent kind of beauty here, ones that only protected heritages can give off.

Now, what’s that Norwegian word for beautiful again?

Because indeed, something strange is truly something beautiful.
