I’m reading Alain de Botton’s book The Architecture of Happiness at the minute. Great stuff. He writes,
"The objects we describe as beautiful are versions of the people we love. Even when objects don’t look anything like people, we can find it easy to imagine what kinds of human characters they might have"
So here’s an experiment, which may serve to flush out some of the lurkers! (geddit?)
Who would you be friends with? And why?
