Yes, there are many kinds of beauty in Obfu, and you have listed three of the main ones. However, beauty is still always in the eye of the beholder. That I do not find it beautiful says nothing of its beauty in your eyes. Nor, does it say anything about my capability to see beauty in other things.
And, I do find many obfus beautiful. Camels by Enlil, for example. My point here was that there was neither obfu nor beauty. To me, the title should have been "Look at this cool stuff!" I have no problem with BUU's meditation, just its title.

This wasn't beautiful to me either, but rather ugly. I interpreted the word 'beauty' in the post as sarcasm, and it reminded me that no matter how hard I try to fight Perl prejudice in the workplace, there is some grounding to that prejudice -- it allows some funky stuff that has no place existing, and the idea of using vars like $" is a bad one if you are trying to write real software. One can only hope, once again, for Perl6 to save us all.
