Beauty resonates with value of life, but human attention provides an unparalleled resource for capturing that beauty with an ever-increasing appreciation of its full life-value and a corresponding capacity to act upon the life-interests of this unique resourcefulness. For every additional insight and understanding, the memory of a particular thing is also enriched with emotional reward that encourages increased attentiveness.
Within its natural environment, beauty plays an informative role in the human pursuit of insight and understanding, to an extent that is only possible for the human inhabitant. Of course, other inhabitants respond to beauty in very particular ways, but most significantly through mate-selection purposes between conspecifics, but in evolutionary terms, the uniqueness of this particular facility resonates with human purpose. Without human inhabitancy, a natural environment is robbed of the sole faculty that could otherwise apprehend the greater dimensions of beauty and properly respond to their aspirational interests.
