    Right now I think perfection would be a thread without Lark & ThatsWhatHeSaid (Who, oddly enough, doesn't have an appropriate apostrophe in his name) arguing about apostrophes or any other issues relating to grammar!

    Edit: Grammar Nazis totally suck!! You guys actually make the internet not fun!! FU!!! (guys & nazis, as used here, don't require apostrophes so STFU)
    I'm never wrong, I'm just sometimes less right

    Perfection is a human concept, and normally fairly subjective to the individual.

    Some people view nature as 'perfect'.

    The Taoists believed that humanity has displaced itself from nature and that in order to achieve perfection, one should observe and understand nature. The tree is strong, but breaks in the storm, while the grass bends in the wind. Which is the stronger in this scenario? The grass. All about duality. Interesting ideas. To them, water is the most perfect, because it is the ultimate 'wu wei', or effort without doing. It cuts a path through mountains, and always finds its way through everything.

    Perfection is when I play games like streetfighter and tekken, beating the enemy without losing any health.

    Perfection is that moment where idealism and hope still prevails and reality hasn't hit yet.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    I happen to think that the mind is a sufficiently real place for something to exist.

    Mhh.
    I'd say the nature of perfection is that its never going to happen in finite time, and our time is ''oh so very finite''. its like wanting a spaceship but its not going to happen any time soon so you keep your car when you could be the proud owner of a cool helicopter.
