Most of us have lost that sense of unity of biosphere and humanity which would bind and reassure us all with an affirmation of beauty. Most of us do not today believe that whatever the ups and downs of detail within our limited experience, the larger whole is primarily beautiful.
Observe, however, that there have been, and still are, in the world many different and even contrasting epistemologies which have been alike in stressing an ultimate unity and, although this is less sure, which have also stressed the notion that ultimate unity is aesthetic. The uniformity of these views gives hope that perhaps the great authority of quantitative science may be insufficient to deny an ultimate unifying beauty.- Gregory Bateson's : Mind and NatureBantam Books
The beauty of this philosophy of aesthetic unification is that it makes us rethink why we are doing what we are doing. It gives us a view point to improve our capability to improve at an individual level, which is a driving force to make the world a better place to live.
