Ersatz Beauty VS Natural Beauty
What is beauty? Is true and natural beauty such big a deal? This is a world whereby being beautiful opens doors to a life that holds many extraordinary opportunities. The sky is the limit or so they say. Given the opportunity even a fool wouldn’t turn away from such treasures and fortune. Everything has a price and beauty is one that is worth every penny. The once unattainable is now available to all because of plastic surgery. Those of us, who were once ignored, get to enjoy the pleasures of looking good and we don’t have to desperately prove ourselves as much as before. People find us pleasing and willingly accept us. So where’s the problem? It is not impossible that natural beauty will become extinct like many magnificent animals in our world. Maybe we are not meant to be unique and distinct individuals. Instead looking alike, akin to being manufactured and mass produced from a single mould, straight out of a factory production plant is part of our evolution.
Is this where we are truly heading? Or are we willing to take a step back and re-evaluate the current conundrum. Are we at the point where we might be too blasé about this topic and the repercussions of going under the knife? The material world is usually depicted as nothing more than a rat race running towards prestige, power, competition and survival, and in the process devouring resources. If we only focus on the external, superficial recognition will be enough. Beauty is power, some say. And power is irresistible.
So what have we become; a creator or a magnificent gifted modifier?
