The problem with the modern man is that he conflates [his] preference with Beauty. His ego makes him blind.
For instance, just because you like your 5 year old child's drawing and hang it on your refrigerator does not mean that it immediately qualifies as Good or Beautiful art. How egotistic of you! — and what of the millions of other 5 year olds and their drawings? Why do they not appeal to you?
Only those who forgo their egos have a chance to sit with the Gods.
