The Dangers of Perfection part 1.When people fall in love they often say that the other person is perfect, or that they are perfect for each other. When someone finally forgets all their worries and stress in life, and just appreciates a moment for what it truly is, they call that day perfect. When somebody comes up with a solution that solves a problem that has been plaguing their lives, they like to say that idea is perfect. They're not, nothing is or can be, and we shouldn't want them to.
When we love someone with all your heart, we tend to forget completely about what we used to want, and see them as our sole desire. Love the way they mispronounce something, think their mistakes are cute, find the difference in their nipple sizes to be sexy, or what ever little weird quirk that makes them more them than they would have been. That is amazing and beautiful, but not perfect. Rather it is the realization that those were never flaws to begin with.
We've been told by society that people should look a certain way, do certain things, and want our bond with another to be this way. When we find out that isn't the case, find something is better for us than they called the best, we want to associate that epiphany with perfection. But the problem with this is, you're both going to change and grow... possibly apart. No two people or their relationship stays the same forever, nor should they. We might have traits that remain constant, but who we are as a whole is always changing.
If you permanently lose that person/ relationship for what ever reason, you will want something you can never have. Your dreams will be out of reach. And you will constantly look for what you can never find again. Even if you stay with that person forever, you run the risk of depreciating the changes they make in their life, and to themselves as a person.
Instead, you can just realize you have something beautiful and amazing beyond value. Though, one day if you lose that, realize you can find something else beautiful and amazing that is also without value.
IrrationalI'm sure most of you have heard that pi is an irrational number, meaning that it changes and goes on forever without repeating. Of course we can't know this, because how ever long we study pi, and what ever we learn it is going to be less than the knowledge of the grain of sand on a beach. It goes on forever. Though, we don't have to worry about that. We just use it in our relevance to us, circles, and math. We know that it is significant in helping us solve formulas.
Phi, while it has less publicity is no less important. Pythagoras , Eulcid Leonardo of Piza (who Da Vince was named after, and discovered the Fibonacci sequence), and many other gigantic names in the math world devoted their lives to finding different things about this one irrational number known as the Golden Ratio.
There are many of numbers bigger than these (3.14159... and 1.618...) In fact, somewhere in 4, both of these exist as well as an infinite number of other infinities. We like to say 5 is bigger than 4, but I like to think "It just has more infinities." Because, I'll never truly understand just how big 4 really is.
Then I stumbled across the notion "What if all irrational numbers hold just as much significance as phi and pi?" What if the verse (uni, multi, or other) has just as much meaning on some level of physics (even if smaller than quantum and larger than black holes) for all fractions of numbers and fractions of fractions of numbers?
Or what if they are all part of the same irrational number, continuously leading into each other and changing, so no matter what irrational number you have, they all exist within it? So big and small don't actually exist, just relative location. And intern, reality has no big or small, just relative dimensions.
Example: If you're a human, on a planet, in a solar system, in a galaxy, that's part of a universe, that is a brain cell, of a being, that is a part of a string, that's a part of an atom, that is part of you. (I could go on, and make it longer, but one should always be careful to not go outside their understanding of their own madness when contemplating infinity.)
Then would existence not be what we always knew it was?... Irrational.
