Marla, you said:
: : : : : It's been my hunch for some time that People in nearly every society seem to value good craftsmanship, skill, and the ability to produce objects that are harmonious, yet interesting and not monotonous and boring.
That doesn't explain why people went in (and still do) for plain chant, minimalist music, canvases that are monochrome or nearly so. In fact, I am always amazed by how much people do gravitate towards monotonous, repetitive activities, as are most rites and ceremonies both religios and secular, talk shows, soap operas, sitcoms, political speeches - you name it.
