Pefection is a state of purity where one is flawless and their actions are without err. Many try to comprehend it, countless more try to attain it. And yet no one alive has ever grasped it's true meaning, for death and the eternity that follows is perfection, and so those who have passed have attained it, yet their revelations is silenced.

But Perfection is contradictive and is in states. You can't be perfect as a whole. You can't be perfect in love and hate at the same time since they have opposite elments. You must either be one or the other. The only way where perfection is truly perfect is in death. There's nothing here, no love, no hate, just emptiness and void. It is pure and there are no flaws.

There are an awful lot of assumptions in there (unless, of course, you're dead and not assuming, in which case I think the emphasis of your post might be misplaced), but I would agree with your essential point.

Any absolute, whether it be perfection or this statement, creates paradoxes. It's the nature of the beast.

Which is perfect?  The seed?  The bud?  The flower in bloom?  The petals on the ground?

Each is functioning according to its' design.
