Why isn't our current world perfect?

Post by Ash Kelp » Mon 30th Jan 2012

We can't have a perfect world, (the reason is that it would be different for everybody, among others.) and the one we're in now sure isn't close to perfect, for a lot of people.

But what makes it like that, why isn't it, at least good, right now?

All of us have different views and beliefs, that's why.

I can't really go into specific details, but that's just what I see.

It's why humans find superiority over everything. Unlike all other animalistic instincts, we have a rare quality called individuality. We do not all follow the same religion, or adhere to the same rules strictly. We have our minds and hearts to do what we want, and so on.

We can disagree and get away with it. Someone's favorite color could be blue, another's red. It's the whole concept of everyone is different.

A perfect world would mean robots. I don't want robots.

As I like to say "you're Unique just like everybody else"

all of us do have different views on different things, we think in 3D. (as in all of us see stuff from different angles) That's why we can't agree on everything, we can still agree on some things though.

But then we are not perfect. There's always people out there that bluntly express what they feel, even if others disagree.

We already have a couple good races, (mostly animals) but even they aren't perfect it's really hard to be perfect, but the real problem is that we humans can't settle for good.

Yeah, like WW1 and 2, then we decided enough was enough and launched the Atomic bomb. Now only Terrorists attack us cause we can't fight them nuclear(or atomic)ly. but that is getting off topic, the problem is that the terrorists are attacking us in the first place.

America also sticks its neck into business that doesn't always concern them.

Perfection is in the eyes of the beholder, really. While some think one thing is perfect, others might think it isn't. There's always going to be disagreements, whether small scale, such as in-home, or large scale, such as wars.

The world can never be truly perfect, since we're only human, and we each have our own opinions.

Thank you Fowlie!

Well, when all the normal people find out how cool it is to be different, they'll want to be different too. So if everyone is different, then different people will be normal, and the normal people will be different.

The only way things can really ever be perfect is if we can't think of any thing that would be more perfect then real life.

If are thoughts of perfection were that we were all slaves, and that was perfect. (I can only imagine that if something 'SCI-FI'y happened) What would happen is that we would think the world was perfect, but it still wasn't to the average outside observer.

Therefore 'perfect' is impossible so good is the new 'perfect'. Except people still aren't happy because it's not a perfect world, so we can't have a perfect world because our view of it is impossible.

Ok so perfect would also world peace. World peace would never last, mostly because the chruch or the government would brand something evil. The branding of making something evil, creates evil in the person who did the branding.

So you see perfection could exist but like World Peace it would never last.

Perfect wouldn't necessarily be world peace. Even though world peace may or may not last, if it happens, there could and might still be fighting domestically. For instance, world peace existed, but there are still drugs, alcohol, and abuse.

Perfection only exists if you believe it exists. So, if you think the current world is perfect then it is perfection. Perfection is what we believe it to be.
