A perfect world is built on chaos

Question from the Internet:

“Does your fantasy of a perfect world include any danger, challenges, or failure?”

If we had the ability to sense life through the individual cells in our healthy biological body while we ourselves feel at rest, satisfied, fulfilled, we could observe the constant war, chaos, destruction and rebuilding, crisis scenarios arising each moment attracting constant adjustments.

And in a child’s body which grows with incredible speed, this seemingly haphazard. crazy chaos is even more staggering.

What I tried to show with this that without constant change, constant readjustment. constant analysis, synthesis, response to the different external stimuli we would not feel life.

The Hollywood-style heaven with its pastel colors, angelic music, everybody smiling and floating in the air gazing at the sunset is unbearable even for a few minutes. Without constant changes, renewal we cannot sense life. Our whole perception of reality is based on contrast, recognizing, appreciating light from darkness, sweet from bitter, love against hate.

Only the person who was sick can truly appreciate being healthy, only when we succeed after previous failures can we truly enjoy the success.

A perfect world includes everything, in fact, there is nothing surplus, accidental in our perfect reality we live in right now, we simply do not know, haven’t learned yet how to put the mosaic, the puzzle together so we could see and appreciate the whole, perfect picture!
