Perfection!

RE: Perfection!
Reality, ie. the laws of physics, not the things within the universe, but the laws that govern it.

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.
There is no such thing as a wrong direction in evolution. There is no intrinsic flaw in nature, nature just is. The idea of flaw is an entirely human one. It may express an ethical or esthetical judgement or a shortcoming in the model of nature as made by man. If nature gives unexpected results it's not because nature has flaws, but because our model of nature has flaws.

Actually, it's why it's subjectively cruel.
