"She's perfect for you. Man, there's got to be somebody for me." - "Mr. Jones" by Counting Crows

How many times have I probably thought that while singing at karaoke?  Countless times.

Perfection as usually conceived in modern times is unobtainable.  The epitome is the concept of God's perfection, omnipotent, omnipresent, and omnibenevolent.

"Can God create a boulder that even he cannot lift?"

"If God is omnibenevolent, doesn't that mean goodness exists outside of God?"

Perfection such as the perfect 100 meter dash at 0.00 seconds.

Perfection is impossible in the material, not religious, world when it's defined this way.

Instead you must look at the Ancient Greek theory of perfection, which is instead excellence.

Perfection is really excellence.  Excellence is being the best _____ given that you only have _____ .

There's a difference between a best luxury watch and a best alarm clock.  They do different things.  There's a difference when you start out with relatively nothing and are expected to make great feats with it.
