Bio

I am only 18 years old but I already can tell that I see the world differently, or at least with more passion, from the people that I have just graduated from high school with. I have always wanted to learn more about every single aspect in the broad array of aptitudes that one can come by. I don't only revel in every opportunity to know about what has already been established as knowledge, but I love to contemplate about abstract, yet pervasive subjects such as morality and the consequences of it's facets.

Languages

English, German, Spanish

An idea worth spreading

That there is value in each and every human as long as they themselves realize that there is.

I'm passionate about

Self-Improvement, History, Language, Politics

Talk to me about

Anything at all!

People don't know I'm good at

I'm pretty self-evident and transparent about my capabilities.

My TED story

I signed up on this website seeking meaningful conversations with people of intellect and more knowledge of the world around them than I have gleaned in my short 18 years of life.

What is the Perfect Person?
the whole point of asking the question is to see what universal conceptions of perfection were! For the third time, if you read other people's opinions, they are actually relatively similar! If I knew what perfection was, then I wouldn't have asked the question. I'd just be another sad result of Deus ex Machina.

but it still exists! that's the point. There is obviously no actual perfection, but that doesn't stop us from believing in it. Also, keep in mind that the "perfect life" is only a reflection of the "perfect person". Perfection as I have gleaned it is actually almost identical to all of the people who have answered so far, except for those who don't want to believe in it.

What is the Perfect Person?
The quality of life for African-Americans in the southern U.S. certainly wasn't perfect. But did they just accept second-class citizenship, Jim Crow laws, lower wages, etc.? No way! They imagined a life that was more perfect for themselves and with that image burning in their minds, they fought for it.

What is the Perfect Person?
It's true that many things are relative but there are a few select characteristics that we all admire such as justice, love, and good. In fact, if you look at the characteristics that people have already listed, they are a lot more common than you might expect! Moral relativism doesn't go so far as each person being almost a different intellectual species. Whether you believe that perfection exists or not, it does. Humans can picture consequences and use their imaginations and intellect to make their lives a little more perfect with every decision. If we as humans can always do this, then it doesn't mean that perfection will ever exist in reality, but it means that our reality will improve. As a society, we find our common goals of self-improvement, and then do our best to execute them. Without the idea of perfection, there are no goals. There is only acceptance of the present.

But the question is asking what those ideals are! Without seeing them, then all motives in the world are arbitrary. People don't consciously make bad decisions without caring, do they?
