Purpose and Meaning – Image and Desire

Image and Desire

Scientists who study things tell us the subtle symmetries that underlie attraction to the faces flashed on flickering screens are signals of their healthy genes.  They’re Darwin’s way, they say, all wired in, to choose the ones we lust, not for themselves, but for the boost they give the odds of our success in passing on the pattern of our past.  A kind of immortality dependent on our seed combined with theirs in phantom offspring who will never actually be.
