Sun Guoting, an aesthetician of calligraphy and painting in the Tang and Five Dynasties, put forward the argument that "the beauty of nature is the same as that of nature." in his book, sun Guoting indicates an argument in his book that “the difference between the watchman hanging his needle and hammering his dew, the strangeness of running thunder and falling stones, the frightening posture of flying beasts, the posture of Luan dancing and snakes, the posture of Jue'an decaying peak. In the face of danger, sun Guoting clouds are as heavy as clouds, or as light as cicadas' wings; guiding them, the spring notes, the mountain is safe; the slender moon points out the cliff in the sky He Han is one of the most famous stars in the world. It's the same as nature. It's not the result of physical movement.”
