Question:  Is it possible to design a system, a product, a service, an institution (public or private) that is health guaranteed, injury-free, safe-free, error-free to users?  Can we account for the thousands of different behaviors and emotional conditions of mankind, ever changing with time and situations?  Are you shooting for these kinds of perfect designs or perfection?  That would be a very commendable purpose: Always having the well-being of users in mind.

The French architect and activist, Roland Castro,  asked: “Is there any danger seeking perfection?”  He replied: “The entire 20th century testifies that seeking perfection is the definition of living in hell.  All the totalitarian ideologies have repeatedly demonstrated that the ultimate consequence for perfection or organizing society according to a perfect structure is simply the realization of hell on earth. The fantasy of perfection is the most lethal weapon in mankind spirit. Perfection is a dangerous absurdity.”

If we review the totalitarian ideologies from the Catholic Church, Calvinism, French revolution, fascism, Nazism, Trotsky communism, Stalin communism, Mao Tse Tung communism, Pol Pot communism in Cambodia, Zionism ideology, apartheid ideologies, Qadhafi “green little book revolution”, US capitalism…we can recognize the absurdity of systems meant for the ultimate in perfection.

The root cause of all these ideologies of perfection is the most basic racist tendency of eugenics selection of the elite classes in order to reaping the bounty, under this archaic fear of lacking the means for the survival of their cherished offspring…

When I hear an individual babbling on perfection, his need to doing a perfect job, his anxiety for feeling unable to reach perfection, I get very scared.  I got this visceral feeling that the guy is on a sure path to losing it.  Invariably, this “perfect person” to be has been for a while in extended spiritual isolation; he  is convinced that if he sit still, the world will turn around him and every soul will be paying him a visit for conversation and to commune with him.

Suppose I ask you: “What is perfection?”  How the hell would you know?  If a single person disagree with whatever definition or concept of “what is perfect” then it is no longer perfect.  Your concept of perfection is already an illusion, an ego trip based on chimerical principles not founded on anything solid and real. You have many people saying: “I am focusing on perfecting my behaviors and how to handle my emotions.”

This process is an illusion:  You need other people to communicate with and compare behavior and emotions; you need physical contact to recognize your progress in your endeavor.  Having an ideal to construct is contrary to perfecting an attitude.  The ideal is a boost to constructive achievement. There is a sense of fatality in seeking perfection:  We want to control everything, even the present  moment.  We fail to catch destiny unfolding before our eyes; we refuse to give credit that ideas are not our own, just borrowed intuition from the contribution of the many. People who are determined in doing what they do best in life are not seeking perfection in their task or hobby:  They simply enjoy what they are doing.

The tasks or skills are the definition of their contentment and happiness.  These people are among the living, they have a life, and they cherish the present life.  They are not into this sick paranoia of reconstituting the world to match their isolated illusions. Talents alone leads nowhere.  Talent without the urge to rediscovering your talent, meaning acquiring more knowledge about your work and hobby, leads nowhere.

Actually, this kind of talent is a negative catalyst for the laziness of the mind:  We feel contented but unable to share with others our talent. Getting on with your hobby consistently, improves your talent and your need to share your happiness.  Once you reach the stage for this need to sharing with others then, whatever you are doing is already useful:  Anything becomes useful once you gain partners, sharing in your happiness. What a terrible job of being elected guru:  That would be the ultimate in illusory perfection.

There is no exit.  There is no further improvement, no change, no transformation. The ultimate fear of showing normal healthy emotions and feeling.
