    I don't see a problem with it as long perfectionists don't expect it from others.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    What is perfect?

    “Nothing is prefect or God is perfect, which is it? People ascribe to both beliefs and everything in between. I don’t believe in God. I do believe that we are interconnected and I call this a power source that we can tap into. I don’t believe that there is a universal, cognizant, sentient, overlord being. I do believe in a universal interconnectedness but it are based on energy and science and not magic.

    There is no such thing as magic and there are no miracles. Everything has a scientific exclamation. Science is perfect because it is based on immutable laws. The downfall of this is that we view reality through distorted lens. This fallibility translates into how we may misinterpret our understandings and scientific findings." LightSun

    "What is perfect? Everything is prefect in its own light. It is the inability to see, or better yet, to perceive perfect ion that keeps us confined in mental blindness. It is fear that further deters our ability to reach perfection, for fear creates dividers that make perfection frustratingly elusive.

    I define perfection as experiencing one’s own actualization. Perfection is not a physical concept; perception is an emotional and spiritual phenomenon of consciousness and awareness. An essential insight to that awareness is that everything is perfect in its own light." Raven YoungBear

    Perfection is not when nothing more needs to be added. Perfection is when nothing else needs to be taken away.
    Knowledge is power. Sanity is for the weak.

    So if the universe was empty, it would be perfect?
