Why the asterisk icon — the symbol of the chosen one?

I would like to know the logic of the author of this idea, maybe someone has suggestions?

The asterisk is often used to refer to the ratings (for example: a three-star hotel five-star brandy). Featured article close at some level of abstraction, to a good article to add the asterisk.

Even in the five-pointed star can be found in the Golden section (1,62). And it is these proportions that are pleasant to see and draw the human.
... so the star and is used absolutely everywhere. From Satanism to the symbol of the red army. - jaylin52 commented on October 10th 19 at 08:00
Ie, Satanism and the Red Army — the two opposites?
I wouldn't call the Red Army the army of the Lord. - nickolas.Gibson commented on October 10th 19 at 08:03

Intuitive sign, something that is of high quality. In some countries, children in
Elementary school not put the rating and stars. Actually, I think it originally appeared. Because of thrust person to something sublime, unattainable. To the stars.

I do not agree. depending on the context, bookmarks and favorites can be different things. - jaylin52 commented on October 10th 19 at 08:04
Favorites can be many pages, and a lot of bookmarks in the "book" will not thrust — too uncomfortable. - nickolas.Gibson commented on October 10th 19 at 08:07

Asterisk is a well-established character. For most users it is enough that in Windows this icon is associated with Favorities :) This is no joke, but a statement.
Another benefit of stars is that it is easy to read in the resolution of 16x16, and even 8x8, and the other icons can come into disrepair.
