Not Perfect Is Good

with 2 comments


“Immaculate being?

In this secular existence, perfection is illusion. Regardless of all those who utter the contrary, this is the reality. Common man seeks it out … they aspire to achieve it, as if it were some tangible things.

But the fact of the matter is, perfection is an hollow shell. It is … devoid of any substance. I spit on perfection.

Perfection afterall, implies that you have reached the summit. No trial and error… no ability to conceptualize. An omniscient being would have no need for such superfluous things. For people who dabble in the sciences such as yourself, perfection would render you obsolete.

Many magnificent things have been, and will continue to come into existence. And yet, every last one of them will fall short of perfection’s finish line. Our function as men of science relies on their shortcomings, and then, only then can we apply the fruits of our labor.

To put it simply …. As soon as you began spouting that nonsense about being immaculate being, your fate was sealed. How dare you call yourself a man of science….” Mayuri Kurotsuchi, a Shinigami mad-scientist, while eternally paralyzing and torturing another scientist, Szayel Aporro from Espada. Szayel earlier revived himself from death, and called his immortality technique perfect. – [Bleach (manga), Chapter 306]
