Thinking about babies: when they’re first born they can’t even hold their heads up; someone has to support their heads so it doesn’t just loll back. As babies continue to grow, they turn into teenagers that might learn to perform a proper cartwheel or to learn the art of dance.
That’s physical development (in simplest term).
But what about the emotional, social and intellectual development that can occur throughout a life: How do people develop, and what’s the relationship to style preference?
Are emotional, social or intellectual developments the byproduct of a continuous process that is gradual and cumulative? If you side with that POV, chances are you’re inclined to appreciate all things vintage. That you would be partial to sense your immorality, and that you find great ease to appreciate the sight, touch and smell, of your past.
Or, are emotional, social or intellectual developments viewed as passages through stages of life that are qualitatively different from each other. If you side with that POV, chances are you’re inclined to appreciate Modern Design. That thought of improved function motivates you, that you may be likely to live with tomorrow in mind, and that you aim to dream of the future; or the wonderment thereof.
Agreeable, I strongly believe that when it comes to desire, to attraction or to attachment, that these things are never black and white; rather shades of grey.
