business success motivational speakerPhilosophy and Purpose: We Are All Imperfect

 

Subject: Philosophy, Purpose, Being, Perfection



 

The great arguments of philosophy are as old as man’s ability to think. When man first understood that he was a being, now conscious of his own existence, he eventually realized that he was something both in nature and out of nature at the same time.


In nature, he was part of some erratic, chaotic order that he himself had no control over. Outside of nature, he tried to understand his relationship to nature and how he would attempt to live in a state of nature with full knowledge that he was outside it.


Standing outside the natural sphere looking in, man then attempts to define what is his role, purpose or reason for being. He begins to seek the answer to the question of “Why?”


The history of man is laden with many whom have tried to answer this simple yet impossible question. Failure hence has begotten a slew of philosophies and perspectives that still attempt to answer this question. The creation of ‘isms’ (e.g., existentialism, objectivism, hedonism, etc.) are but niche philosophies trying to understand our existence. Philosophies seem like fragments of thinking deposited like sediment over the centuries which have hardened and taken hold and are now considered niche philosophies.


Each idea, theory, discourse and so forth, aim at again answering that simple question of “why?” All great wars and subsequent human conflicts have their root in different arrivals to this very same question.
In order to understand the varying perspectives of mankind, one must begin by understanding how each individual or group has answered this very simple question.
 

If for instance, a man concludes that the reason ‘why’ is that we are all some part of some master plan, which naturally assumes there was an architect, then he will follow a set of principles that are in congruent with this line of thinking. Let us put a label on this person and call him a religious or spiritual person.
 

At the other extreme of this reasoning, we find the human who has concluded that life is a natural accident and that we evolved from a one cell amoeba and that man’s future is the here and now and no architect ever existed. This type of person we will label the atheist; does not having any theistic beliefs that there is a creator.
 

The third archetype is the man wrestling between the extremes of these two systems; unable to commit to one or the other. He is not convinced that creation is an accident, but he is neither convinced that there is one chief architect. We’ll refer to this type as an agnostic.


When we enter into a debate, argument or conflict with others, we are at some level differing on these 3 archetypical viewpoints. Our conflicts to this day have their origin in how we perceive our relationship to the world around us.
 

Our difference with others may very well be better understood if we took the time to understand their point of origin. All systems of belief are built up around one of these central tenets. Agreements amongst all will not likely be forthcoming.
 

And here’s something to ponder on the subject of perfection and normality: If man (or woman) is imperfect (i.e., has defects), and all humans are imperfect, shouldn’t we conclude, regardless of our belief system, that imperfection is normal. In other words, in the land of blind where everyone is blind, isn’t being blind normal? In the land of imperfect people, isn’t it normal to be imperfect? So why seek perfection when 1) we know it’s not possible and 2) everyone is imperfect anyway so why worry about it.
 

So let’s stop arguing about who’s right, and remind ourselves that whatever our differences in what we believe, there is one thing that can’t be argued, we are NOT perfect beings. We all have our defects, architect or not. Our imperfections are also a reminder that we don’t and can’t know it all; that we could ALL be wrong on what our purpose of being is.

Ps I wrote a great article Fatal Conceit Redux that expands on the subject of thinking we have all the answers.
