I like how Masonabu Fukuoka put his revelation -- that nature is perfect just as it is -- into practice because it was impossible to explain to people in words.) Yes, everything always deserves a closer look.

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
of things that had been put there all along, but he was to stupid to see them. There is more to learn about how
things fit together. Mollison is smarter, more reflective and certainly more observant person than most.
