Neither do I. But I guess that's the nature of beauty, yes? It doesn't
like being categorized.

Postrationality is what you get after looking at it rationally and after
looking at it in other ways. There is some quality to be gained from
rational analysis and some quality to be gained from all other kinds of
interpretations, as well as including prerational impressions (if such
things can even be spoken or thought of after the fact) in a synthesis. I'm
not even sure if this category makes any sense, but if it does, it would
definitely be different from prerationality.
