Necessary Beauty (somewhat like emptiness) is best defined by what it's NOT: a visual or aural event, narrated, staged or even referred phenomenon. It is an unscripted private experience that spontaneously occurs at the convergence of personal state and external event.

It is not a thought, but perhaps a spontaneous sense of meaning and synchronicity with the world, something that makes being and doing worthwhile. It is evasive and impossible to repeat in the same form.
