Perfection is impossible if you are a learning being and, we humans are learning beings.
In an infinite learning-better process, perfection is not possible. No matter when we define a perfection achieved, around the corner, a better awaits. Because it is transitory, perfection changes continuously into imperfect. However, if one is programmed to learn and then become better at learning through learning, would that not be a state of perfection?
Considering this idea, and since, we humans, have brains that change themselves - we are already in a state of perfection - learning better.
What could be more valuable to this world, than a learning being who is continually trying to learn more?
We are born exquisite investigative scientists. A baby is an absolute learning sponge proving the innocence of our natural excellence. Unlike other animals, our brains and most recently our modern frontal lobes, have rewarded us with the process of reflecting and pondering. This process has increased our learning capabilities by producing perpetually deepening complex questions.
The questions that our insatiable curiosity produces, burn and churn in our gut until we find answers.
Human's curiosity births a thirst for knowledge causing a desire to investigate, explore and analyze. This constant scrutiny eventually undergoes another transformation altering into a never-ending search for more knowledge.
Sadly, in the present negative punitive atmosphere, the process has been perverted by the use of the word, improvement. The pursuit of endless learning defined as improvement has perverted the learning process. We have forgotten that we are perfect learning entities and this incessant longing to improve rather than learn has erroneously settled into our being as a subconscious malaise. Currently, it rumbles in our daily lives, asking for more, devastating us with a sadness.
We can never satisfy its yearning.
For how can a curious learning being who has emerged into a profoundly mysterious universe ever satisfy its curiosity? It is impossible, as is, the attainment of omnipotent perfection. Just a few years ago, the experts believed that the brain was fixed. Currently, we have discovered that it's actuality plastic, changing and developing all of our lives.
This glitch in our development that our learning neutrality has become perverted by the word improvement, causes us, humans, to consider ourselves ever in need of improvement. The perception based on the word improvement suggests we are never good enough. This idea promotes a malaise that comes from never having enough and never being good enough. In turn, the malaise or never ending sadness causes fear and suffering.
If we would only remember and understand that:
a learning being already is the perfection it seeks, we could then relax and enjoy learning, instead of always feeling less than - because we ever have more to learn.
