On perfection: Just cause perfection has perfect in it doesn't mean it's perfect.it causes it's problems just as anything does.for a language made by man, can only be finite, for it is made by finite beings.although we have a notion as to what we perceive as perfect, it is different from one to the next.due to this difference, perfection or the concept of something being perfect is a mere fabrication of what we ourselves cannot obtain. simply something that is held as a standard.just as a number on a ruler marks the length,it is used to mark the progress in a particular area. this is however, is a mark off the ruler; so it itself cannot be marked because of the difference in views. So it is not a number.this is in a societal view.  however since perfection is a concept of humans, it can be obtained or labeled by an individual. although it maybe seen differently, to that person it can be a mark on a ruler.With the growth of a group we add more perspectives, making the perception of perfection more likely to change. although one has a perspective as to what it is, the difference, or alteration, causes it to change, making the original idea not the same. Take a flower, one may see it as ugly the other perfect.when we bring two people to look at a flower, they both may see it as perfect, .one may like the pedals, the other the stigma, when they converse they share this with each other.now they may agree or disagree, even with the agreement they add to their concept of perfection... changing it. so here we now take this experience and show a new flower.that person will notice the stigma or pedal, this may change his views at a later time this shows that the perception of perfection has been added on to,or changes. does this make it more perfect?no it does not. In short perfection is what the beholder wants it to be. We now take into account the mental changes of the individual. take day where it is raining, the person may see it as perfect, the next time through a string of events may think it not. the mind is never really stagnant, it is always taking in information.our conception of perfection is created by a series of events. since it is in the language it can be found to the individual or to a group, however even here it changes, showing that the idea of perfection changes. even though it may already exist, so as a single stagnant entity it does not exist. Perfection is a word, in my view, to create a bar to strive to. In a group ones views on perfection will certainly either be added on to or refuted. perfection is unattainable in its pure form in a group. To the individual however this standard can be met. this is when the person has done his or her personal best and is satisfied with their work. this is perfection, the person has gone and done the most he or she can.perfection is attainable but remember its specific to the person. (a note) To the perfectionist, if you are like me then the best is never good enough. through physical abuse or mental anguish we still push. if we are to be perfect, we must abandon the attempt to be perfect. it is in by doing this that the option becomes available. to realistically hold an expectation and fulfill it( if honestly done) you will know you've done your best.in the end that's as perfect as you can be
