True Perfection Equates To Lifelessness

So much for the idea of perfection.....one of the fundamental reasons we exist at all is due to imperfection.

Imperfection in the way the early universe was able to coalesce non-uniform aka "imperfect" pockets of gases such that stars and planets and eventually LIFE could ensue. If perfection existed, the matter in the universe would have been "perfectly" uniform precluding any tendency for  matter to clump together at all. In this way, the universe would be lifeless. Hats off to imperfection! It is the unsung hero of reality!

  1. The problem with discussing perfection and imperfection is that it depends on your perspective as to what is perfect and what is bad. To a human tending his or her lawn Roundup might seem perfect but to the weeds and other plants it is a horrible killer. To pockets of gas may have been imperfect in one way however from a different perspective they were perfect for creating life.

  2. Which just begs the question, how can God be ABSOLUTELY perfect? Relatively speaking, God CAN be perfect to militant religious crusaders of any sort, but not ABSOLUTELY perfect for the aforementioned reason. Which seems to suggest that perhaps we should JUST ACCEPT WHAT IS (like many Buddhist followers believe) and consider THAT perfect? Trouble is, that seems fatalistic and bizarre when considering people are writhing in pain somewhere in the world! So what can we do to offer solace? Create our own "relative" concept of perfection in order to aim for something bigger than "what is" which just leaves us right where we started. Which if abandoned leaves us in a fatalistic framework which.....which.....which?
