Beauty in the midst of destruction

Left: a shimmering cut branch in the midst of the "logged" area along East Beach in White Rock.

Two springs ago, the mature stand of trees that used to flank my once-favourite East Beach seaside walk was "clearcut." At the same time, new buildings on the hilltop acquired beach views. I didn't return to my old walk till last week. This morning, I read in the Vancouver Sun that several restaurants in White Rock have closed.

I've also been reading about Quantum aesthetics -- the artistic parallel worldview to quantum physics. This perspective holds that wholeness incorporates beauty and ugliness. Thus art cannot be subjected to restrictive rules.

Are the above facts above connected, and if so, how?
