I think it is when someone sees something in someone else that reminds their own mind of some shadow in oneself. A reflection so to speak.
suppose we are talking about something other than people? i dont think any people are ugly-i used to, but i dont any more.
what is ugly to me are house lizards, earthworms, fish, and i cant think of anything else offhand right now. so why do i think they are ugly? the first two are ugly colors and color is important to me; also they have a creepy way of moving. but fish are sometimes beautiful colors, yet i find them extremely ugly because they have no arms and legs and not even a neck-they are like impossible living things that dont make any sense at all.
but i dont really know why i think they are ugly. i am assuming it is because of some unconscious association. i would like not to find anything ugly.
maybe it is because these three things are what i would want to be least if i had to choose something? i know people who like lizards and fish, but i never knew anybody who actually liked earthworms. now i will probably have nightmares....:eek:
