I too see and profoundly appreciate the beauty in all art forms, artificially created by man, and wondrously produced by Nature.
Nature created man so by all that man creates is natural. Logic can be elegant in the eyes of some.

One can wonder endlessly about the form of the SR-71 Blackbird, blissfully ignorant of the true nature and purpose of this awesome weapon of mass destruction.
The SR-71 is (was) used for recon and has precious little payload space for weapons. Only a few were refitted to carry external drones which may have been weapons ... weapon of mass destruction it is not.

Elegance and ignorance may well be strange bedfellows. I prefer to steer clear of the latter.
