  Human physical appearance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Variation in the physical appearance of humans is believed by anthropologists to be an important factor in the development of personality and social relations in particular physical attractiveness.
Some people have traditionally linked some differences in personal appearance such as skeletal shape with race, such as prognathism or elongated stride (but this is a controversial and sensitive matter).
Some differences in human appearance are genetic, others are the result of age or disease, and many are the result of personal adornment.

 Color - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When this radiation has a wavelength inside the human visibility range (approximately from 380 nm to 740 nm), it is known as light within the (human) visible spectrum.
As we will see, there are many more spectra than color sensations; in fact one may formally define a color to be the whole class of spectra which give rise to the same color sensation, although any such definition would vary widely among different species and also somewhat among individuals intraspecifically.
The familiar colors of the rainbow in the spectrum—named from the Latin word for appearance or apparition by Isaac Newton in 1671—contains all those colors that consist of visible light of a single wavelength only, the pure spectral or monochromatic colors.

 The Historicity of the Empty Tomb Evaluated: Appearance Traditions
In the Epistula Apostolorum, the angels have been dropped entirely, and now there is only the appearance of Christ.[80] The fact that the appearance of Christ eventually supplants the angelophany suggests that there was no original tradition of an appearance of Christ to the women.
What could provide the earliest tradition of an appearance in Jerusalem turns out to be, rather, a Matthean device that must be used because of the awkward conjuction of the discovery of the empty tomb by the women and the appearance to the disciples in Galilee.
This indicates that the Jerusalem appearance stories follow on the heels of the empty tomb story, and thus that the empty tomb story is a relatively recent development in the Gospel of Mark, because the author of Mark retained the older tradition of appearances to the disciples and Peter in Galilee.

 Geomview Manual - Appearance   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Appearances work in a hierarchal manner: if a certain appearance property, for example face color, is not specified in a particular object's appearance, that object is drawn using that property from the parent appearance.
If both the parent and the child appearance specify a property, the child's setting takes precedence unless the parent appearance is set to override.
The base appearance specifies reasonable values for all appearance information, and by default none of the other appearances specify anything, which means they inherit their values from the base appearance.

 The Doctrine of Essence (Appearance), Hegel
In our imagination we ordinarily combine with the term appearance or phenomenon the conception of an indefinite congeries of things existing, the being of which is purely relative, and which consequently do not rest on a foundation of their own, but are esteemed only as passing stages.
Appearance is higher than mere Being — a richer category because it holds in combination the two elements of reflection-into-self and reflection-into-other: whereas Being (or immediacy) is still mere relationlessness, and apparently rests upon itself alone.
Apart from this subjective view of Appearance, however, we have all reason to rejoice that the things which environ us are appearances and not steadfast and independent existences; since in that case we should soon perish of hunger, both bodily and mental.

 From Easter to Valentinus and the Apostles' Creed Once More: A Critical Examination of James Robinson's Proposed ...
James Robinson argues that parallel trajectories, springing from primitive Christian experiences of post-resurrection appearances of Christ as a luminous bodily form, issued in the second-century Gnostic understanding of the appearances as unembodied radiance and in the second-century orthodox view of the appearances as non-luminous physical encounter.
On the contrary, the distinction drawn by the NT church between a resurrection appearance and a veridical vision suggests that the appearances were conceived to be physical events in the external world.
In fact, it is instructive to note that the rabbis distinguished between a mere vision of an angel and an extra-mental appearance of an angel precisely on the basis of whether food seen to be consumed by the angelic visitant remains or is gone after the angel disappears.
