Solitude gives birth to the original in us, to beauty unfamiliar and perilous- to poetry. But also, it gives birth to the opposite: to the perverse, the illicit, the absurd. - Thomas Mann

How do we describe perfection
Are we perfect because we have the ability to make chooses?

That makes us imperfect. The ability to choose gives us a sense of dignity if we choose the better, but a deep sense of shame for choosing the worst. The ability to make choices and learn from our mistakes is what makes us human.

The state of being without a flaw or defect. Complete of its nature.

Lol..the whole point of description is that its a representation of 'reality' whatever that is. So you can never describe perfection. However, yes the word everything is most probably the best suited word; but a word is know by the company it keeps so it depends what you perceive everything as, and no doubt its finite if analysed by a higher order of consiousness. Another option is that nothing is perfect, so perfection exists in nothing, but thats silly because nothing can exist in nothing.

There is no such thing as perfection, there is only bias.

So in our mind or what we think is perfection makes perfection, but to others it may not be so its imperfections,
then is it all but just how we judge to make things be what they are? If so, what is reality but just something thought in our minds?

thats all it is. and yes, i beleive that perfection is deferent for every person, which is why every person is said to be "meant" for another person.

I believe that you should all watch The Last Samurai, for those of you without access i'll tell you why. Two men have a conversation early in the movie wherein one of them tells the other that a life spent searching for a perfect cherry blossom would not be a wasted life. Later in the movie in his dieing words he sees a bunch of cherry blossoms some of them blowing in the wind and falling down. He grabs the other man and says "they all are perfect." This is how i feel about everyone and everything. I know this begs the response "but if everyone is perfect then noone is." 2wo plus 2wo will always equal 4our (just using an example not looking for a time that it doesnt) it's a perfect equation just as 1ne plus 2wo equals 3ree. and so on
