    >It is not journalistic information or scientific education or moral guidance that man seeks from a work of art (though these may be involved as secondary consequences), but the fulfillment of a more profound need: a confirmation of his view of existence—a confirmation, not in the sense of resolving cognitive doubts, but in the sense of permitting him to contemplate his abstractions outside his own mind, in the form of existential concretes.

    >The importance of that experience is not in what he learns from it, but in that he experiences it. The fuel is not a theoretical principle, not a didactic “message,” but the life-giving fact of experiencing a moment of metaphysical joy—a moment of love for existence.

      not wrong, but thats a longwinded way to say the sublime. though I guess a more thorough explanation is good from time to time.

    >By a selective re-creation, art isolates and integrates those aspects of reality which represent man’s fundamental view of himself and of existence. Out of the countless number of concretes—of single, disorganized and (seemingly) contradictory attributes, actions and entities—an artist isolates the things which he regards as metaphysically essential and integrates them into a single new concrete that represents an embodied abstraction.

    >For instance, consider two statues of man: one as a Greek god, the other as a deformed medieval monstrosity. Both are metaphysical estimates of man; both are projections of the artist’s view of man’s nature; both are concretized representations of the philosophy of their respective cultures.

    >Art is a concretization of metaphysics. Art brings man’s concepts to the perceptual level of his consciousness and allows him to grasp them directly, as if they were percepts.

    >This is the psycho-epistemological function of art and the reason of its importance in man’s life (and the crux of the Objectivist esthetics).

    It's to express the whole of the human condition, to portray the world around us, the world we wish existed. It's also in the pursuit of universal beauty in the sense that the great philosophers pursued truth and justice, these abstract ideals that are invisible but are most definitely there. At least with art we can at least conceptualize and visualize such beauty. At the bare minimum humans want to create things that look cool and we can gawk at.

    Why are AIs taking over this and other boards? They're turning frequent images and translating them to other images that, in the thumbnail, look the same, but are clearly different. I don't like it.

        That is bad. We should not be contributing to their data, just like we probably shouldn't be filling out captchas.
