After I stopped being arrogant, I've become perfect.

RE: Perfection!
There's nothing I'm proud about what-so-ever.

Well, actually, I am a bit wrong there... I think that actually if I'm to be proud of anything it's the fact that I'm such a fucking beautifully modest, brilliantly humble and noble person who is never in the slightest bit big-headed and never jealous of anyone - and never resents anybody... I guess this makes me awesome Blush

RE: Perfection!
I'm just wondering if reality is perfect.

Everything is subject to it, so could you call reality perfect?

Y?

Can't reality be perfectly imperfect??

RE: Perfection!
No.
Principles of reality.
Yes.
Maybe imperfect in isolation where effective functioning isn't apparent.

I meant the 1st though.

So, being a complete nihilist when it comes to all objective values, I don't believe that anything is at all perfect in an objective sense (or you might as well say "everything is perfect", that's equally meaningless - it's basically the same thing just with opposite wording!) - just as how I don't believe that anything at all has 'flaws' in an objective sense. Why? Because I don't believe I know of the existence of any for any objective values whatsoever.

I don't understand!
I am wondering if nature has flaws. An example would be an evolution of a life from in the wrong direction, therefore the life form would become extinct because it is flawed.

How can you be so sure it is only defined and judged by humans!

Do you mean reality as in everything! I believe reality is flawed. As in some things out there are not perfect, without flaw or unifrom.

Silly..YOU are the one raising the question ...am I incorrect in assuming that you are human??

Nature and all that you see around you is 'imperfect' for a given value.

I would think that perfection is an idea construct ...totally unattainable.

What we live in is a work in progress.... mind you i havn't spoken to any genes lately.
