Scientists Confirm: Beautiful Art = Mind Rush Love

Glad to see this. One the confirmations of how beauty in art excites the emotion of love.
Rand calls this experience a "love of existence."
Perigo calls it a "Value-Swoon" (gotta wonder about how New Zealander's feel about the word swooning. In America swooning was used for the effected fainting of teenage girls at rock concerts and Victorian ladies who wanted to get laid feigning helplessness.
If I don't have a better alternative I shouldn't criticize.
I think MSK calls it a "trance."
Mind fuck is what I privately call it, but that is a bit crude, and has a negative connotation.
Do you think scientists will get around to testing how postmodern art effects the brain? It will probably excite feelings of disgust. If it did, I doubt that would change anything as PM'ers are all for embracing the pathetic as a road to a "better" and more realistic world.
