The problem with perfection as an ideal is that it is genuinely attainable—by non-living beings, maybe plants, and animals with no brains at all. A rock, in reality, will sit "completely" motionless for millennia until moved upon by any force. But humans aren't made that way! We are driven to move forward, to expand our knowledge, to explore new lands and meet new people. It's what makes us special.
So yes, there is such a thing as perfect perfection. And if you find someone who has reached it, you should probably bow down to them.
No, not at all. Nothing in our world is flawless because perfection cannot be created. Perfection, according to Plato's Theory of Forms, can exist only in the domain of philosophers, those who choose to delve further into the shrouded secrets of metaphysics. For everyone else, there are only imperfect copies of the perfect original.
In philosophy, the concept of perfection has two meanings: first, as a theoretical ideal that sets a standard for excellence; second, as an attribute of God. Only God is perfectly perfect because he is self-subsistent and independent. Humans cannot achieve this level of perfection because they depend on other humans or things outside themselves for survival.
Philosophers have tried to find ways to describe the perfect life while others have searched for a perfect society or person. However, such a thing does not exist in reality. Instead, we must strive to live up to our potential by learning from our mistakes and continuing to grow as people.
Perfection is a faultless condition in which everything is just right. It can also refer to the act of perfecting something. Because flawless objects have no flaws or flaws, perfection is the ideal condition. Everything is absolutely perfect. Of course, perfection is elusive. There are some things that cannot be made perfectly good - for example, light bulbs and pie crust.
The word "perfect" is used with almost every thing we see or do: your first try on an action figure is not perfect but it's still useful; his painting is not yet perfect but it will do; their relationship is not yet perfect but it's coming along.
It's difficult to describe something that cannot be seen or felt but which everyone understands when we talk about perfect beauty or perfect music. We all know what it means to appreciate beautiful art or soothing music, and we know when we encounter these things they give us pleasure. But what does it mean to experience pleasure? Scientists think that feeling pain or joy is our way of telling ourselves whether or not we're alive. If we weren't aware of any pain or joy, we would never know how we're doing as individuals or as a species. Therefore, perfection is needed in order to achieve absolute happiness or absolute misery. Since we can't make anything else exactly like perfection, we need perfection in things we love.
Yes, the world is perfect in and of itself. Imperfections are nothing more than an illusion created by the human mind's comparing/discriminating abilities. Plants seed in a variety of ways in nature, some by the strength of the wind, others through fruit, and yet others through burrs. They all function for the specific plant, therefore each and every technique is ideal. The same can be said of humans; we create divisions in everything that we do/create to make sense of it all. Nature does the same thing, only on a much larger scale.
Now, back to your question: No, nothing is perfect. But that doesn't mean that something isn't very good or valuable. If you want to know if something is perfect, try this simple test: Can you imagine it any better? If you can, then it's not perfect. Otherwise, it can always be improved upon.
For example, take the apple tree in my front yard. I can't actually picture it being uprooted and moved to another location, but if I could, I'm sure that I would prefer that to happening to a tree that has provided me with apples since I was a child. Even though the actual process of evolution has brought us to where we are today, it wasn't perfect at any point during its development. From natural selection's perspective (which is what matters), there is no difference between an apple tree that provides apples and makes the environment suitable for other organisms to live in, and one that doesn't.
So they believed that the only way to be blameless was to be flawless. Perfectionists believe that others are somehow better or superior to them, and that they must be faultless in order to catch up. This is a very dangerous misconception. Individuals who strive for perfection are keenly sensitive to other people's opinions. Because of this, they become insecure and feel like failures even when others praise them for something that they worked hard at.
The problem lies in the fact that nobody is perfect. Nobody does everything right all the time. We all make mistakes, sometimes many times in a day. We are all human beings, not god-like superheroes. Trying to be perfect can be extremely stressful and frustrating, which is why most people don't go about it properly.
If you want to be perfect at something, then focus on becoming excellent at it. Don't try to be perfect all the time; instead, allow yourself to be human and make mistakes. Other people will still love and respect you despite your flaws, and that's what matters most.
Is human perfection attainable? Perfection, on the other hand, is logically unattainable. If anything is perfect, it is either impossible of change (i.e. dead) or only capable of change in the direction of imperfection, because the perfect cannot be improved, only made less perfect.
For example, consider the idea of a perfectly white color. Such a color does not exist in nature; all colors are relative to each other. If we were to ask what color is perfect, there would be no answer to give, since there is no such thing as a perfectly white color.
We can think of perfection as being like brightness: It's always relative to something else. So, yes, a human can be considered perfect.
However, only God is absolutely perfect. He cannot make any mistakes and he always acts with good intent. Humans are not perfect, but they can act without sinning. The Bible says that humans were created in God's image, which means that we have some of God's qualities, including his ability to act without sinning.
So yes, a human can be considered perfect.
Plato's Theory of Forms asserts that perfection exists solely in the domain of mind. There is only one of each ideal, and the others are copies. This one invention is known as a form, and it is the most perfect depiction of a concept. The other forms are imperfect copies of the first.
In other words, everything that is, is perfect in some way. No thing is entirely good or bad; instead, there are various degrees of goodness or badness. All things are in some degree both, and they interconnect with each other to make up this world. Some people like to think of this world as being made up of two opposing forces - good and evil - but that's not true. Everything is either good or bad depending on how you look at it.
People often wonder why something terrible happened back then, like wars or natural disasters. But they shouldn't worry about that. Because whatever happens here on earth, it all leads up to some kind of perfect solution. One thing is certain: anything can happen, including the worst possible events. However, even though these things may happen, overall life has proved to be more perfect than anything else could have been.
Plato believed that this world was the best place there could be, because it had wisdom and knowledge attached to it.
