This is what I found yesterday as I was realizing how other moments in time and other places in spaces are precisely here now.

I was daydreaming and I had the following 'vision'. I don't know if it counts as a full strange loop, but it goes something like this:

Ants crawled under my phone and started to carry it away. As I wanted to grab my phone to take a picture, I noticed that ants crawled under my phone and started to carry it away.

And then I 'woke up' from the daydream. I looked at my phone to check the time. Puzzled, I watched how my phone was moving on its own. I looked beneath it, and saw how ants started to carry it away. I grabbed my phone to take a picture, but the phone that I wanted to shoot disappeared. Ants had carried it away.

Our love for beauty and beautiful faces is a strange loop

Beautiful faces are valuable. Why are they valuable? Because they are valuable.

Ofc it has social and economical benefits , but why?  It has those benefits because society values beauty. And why is beauty valuable? Because we value it.

It serves no information about fertility or survival value.

 

See golden ratio in faces:

Another take is that there could be some higher inteligence behind the efficiency of the golden ratio, and therefore evolution is pulled towards it. Reallity is extremely efficient.
