      Can perfection (although in my opinion unattainable for all of us) be an end in itself? Do we need a motive for perfection outside the desire to be better, more than what we are? Perfection, and the futile attempt to attain it, is an end itself for us humans. Curious how we all strive to attain that which is ultimately unattainable. Cruel world!

      Yes, we are all doing the same things. But it's not
      striving for perfection as such which is the problem.
      Rather, it is to identify the purpose of that perfection.
      What do we see as the end result of our existence which we
      would like to see?? Everyone strives for perfection, but
      what is the motive??

      Sorry, I am not asking this correctly ... or at least I
      don't think so. Perhaps this is one of those issues that
      depends greatly upon first formulating the question ....

      > You mean all of you out there are striving for perfection
      like me!? and I thought it was a problem of only Me and that
      it's a sort of self-defeating behavior. Isn't it that not?
      Kind of being harsh on oneself.

      with one's end. Maybe hastens one's end.....
