      Perfection

      Welcome to /hell/.



      The word "perfection" derives from the Latin "perfectio", and "perfect" — from "perfectus." These expressions in turn come from "perficio" — "to finish", "to bring to an end." "Perfectio(n)" thus literally means "a finishing", and "perfect(us)" — "finished", much as in grammatical parlance ("perfect").



      Can you fathom flawlessness?

      A complete system is a range encompassing everything. Why do you associate it with harmony?

      Why do doctrines encourage you to attain unity and liken it to goodness and rightness?

      Why are you inclined to think you aren't united already?

      What moves you to strive toward heaven on Earth?



      What convinces you you aren't in paradise already?

      Thank you.

      The word "perfection" derives from the Latin "perfectio", and "perfect" from "perfectus." These expressions in turn come from "perficio" "to finish", "to bring to an end." "Perfectio(n)" thus literally means "a finishing", and "perfect(us)" "finished", much as in grammatical parlance ("perfect").
      Good to know.

      Can you fathom flawlessness?
      Yes.

      A complete system is a range encompassing everything. Why do you associate it with harmony?
      I don't.

      Why do doctrines encourage you to attain unity and liken it to goodness and rightness?
      Because it's in their best interest, I guess.

      Why are you inclined to think you aren't united already?
      I'm not inclined to think that.

      What moves you to strive toward heaven on Earth?
      My biological programming.

      What convinces you you aren't in paradise already?
      I'm not convinced of that.

      No, because I am not perfect.

      Not sure what you mean by that.

      Why do doctrines encourage you to attain unity and liken it to goodness and rightness?
      ...

      Why are you inclined to think you aren't united already?
      Why aren't you?

      What moves you to strive toward heaven on Earth
      The undeniable need to pull this planet and its people off its knees.

      What convinces you you aren't in paradise already?
      Questions like these
      I Dreamed a Dream
      In it, saw people I've never seen
      Gone places I've never been
      And done things I'd do again.

      We are all built to the exact specifications of the laws of physics. There are only flaws where we decide there are.

      Projecting perfection away from your present moment and self is a trap. The process never really finishes, but that doesn't make it flawed.

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.
