This is an idea I have been bouncing off in my head, and I want some feedback. The idea is that the beauty in this universe are determinded by "star souls". They are created from dying stars, and people can't see these sould, but our eyes and senses are attuned to certain types of souls, which are why different people see different things as beautiful. The deities can see them, all but one, the protagnist. They (deities are genderless) are super depressed, as they can't see the beauty in this world. They go throughout the galaxy, and find nothing. Degected, they go back to their home base, but as they are about to give up hope, but then see something beautiful. The story ends without telling you what the beautiful thing is. To make the reader think. ANYways. The deities aren't all powerful. Similar to Norse gods, they are mortal, and still have to abide by the laws of physics and the universe. They are just powerful beings that happen to use Earth as like a nature reserve, or a place that is more to be enjoyed than to be colonized.
My question, which I can't seem to think of an answer of:
- What make humans unable to see the souls, but deities can? Outside of magic.
