I think it's not so much that we are less close to perfect as we are just completely insane I wouldn't see perfection as the goal so much as realigning ourselves with the rest of nature imperfections and all.
We are where we are. There is plenty left to work with. Bill Mollison said he often had great discoveries

things fit together. Mollison is smarter, more reflective and certainly more observant person than most.
