wabi sabi and gestalt theory

gestalt theory has been one of my tools to understand reality. we do our best as we are able to at the time. it is not perfect, it is flawed- but it is good. everything is in flux.

just recently i was confronted with the concept of "wasi sabe". the beauty of imperfection. western aesthetics generally builds on a perfection of the whole, and looks at imperfection as flaws.
i like "wabi sabi" and will research some more.
