The Perfection Game

If Nature was so perfect to create the beauty and harmony of those swans,

then, why was Nature so imperfect to create the humans with the capability to make those sophisticated perfect weapons that can destroy life, beauty and harmony?

Could the imperfect humans with the perfect weapons, capable of destroying the imperfect humans, be just one episode of the Perfection Game? If the current version of humans turns out to be self-destructive as civilization, then in terms of perfection it would be considered a failure. And if Perfection is the name of the game, you can willingly let the current version of humans get discontinued. Following the contemporary international affairs, it is not very difficult to imagine a viable scenario: hypertrophied political egos, encouraged by ambitious military and by exited secret services, clash into a conflict. The conflict gets hot and quickly expands by each camp involving its allies. And when, after the culmination of an intensive military phase, one of the parties would conclude that it is losing the war, it will resort to pushing the red button for the nuclear missiles. For our humanity, this could be the final end. But for Nature’s record it might just be one more unsuccessful experiment. An indispensable step to achieving Perfection. Waiting for the next intelligent creature species to evolve. Nature, or the Creator, or the Intelligent Designer, or whatever is there, can afford to be very patient: they have all the time of Eternity. It is we, the mortals, who should treasure every nanosecond of the time dimension of our unique human existence.

Or, alternatively, could the humans at this point of history be only the imperfect temporary raw material for a higher dimension of Humankind Perfection still in the making? Evolving into the Universal Future?

In a way, from Nature’s point of view, in the final end both ways should be leading to Perfection.

If so, can it be that we, the humans, as the only intelligent creatures on Earth, have been given the very civilizational test to choose Nature’s way to Perfection?

In that case, accelerating the technological drive to make perfect weapons brings the resolution deadline closer and closer.



About lubomir todorov

The years of work and studies I have spent in countries of diverse anthropological, political and cultural realities like Japan, Australia, Russia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Czechia, and my numerous visits across the globe, were abundant in meetings and conversations with not only politicians, government officials and businessmen, but also people of different existential background, ethnicity, education and profession, philosophy and religion, social status and political inclination: aboriginal painters in Australia, US generals, Japanese Buddhist and Shinto priests, Majesties and members of Royal families, Russian scientists, street Mapuche musicians in Chile, British parliamentarians, Indian philosophers, Czech university professors, CEOs of top Japanese corporations, Chinese social sciences researchers, Dutch entrepreneurs - to mention just a few. Over time all this primary data, intertwined with the everyday inflow of information about human activities all over the world and their real-time consequences, were re-assimilated in my mind through the tools of philosophy, international relations, ethics, biology, economics, history and political sciences to gradually constitute a distinct resolution to re-examine my understanding about politics and the nature of human society. Making all the time hard efforts to keep the methodology machine uncontaminated by ideological, political or personal prejudice, I clung to one rule: If you aspire for the beauty of truth, it is only facts and logic that matter. Questioning the viability of human social and political behaviour and the capacity of existing political systems to lead to where people want to be, I believe that sooner than later, in pursue of sustainable prosperity, our humanity will embrace its ultimate imperative of Civilizational Thinking. Human Civilization is the spiritual dimension of homo sapiens group survival strategy that urges humans to mutually defend their strategic self-interest by generating Civilizational Values; and the optimal political environment for that is Universal Future: a global multifaceted platform on which all polities in their ideological, political, national, cultural, ethnic, religious, racial, etc. diversity exist, interrelate and compete with each other on non-violence basis.
