The problem with perfection is that this word has *no* absolute meaning.

Then depending on your culture/history it can have a different meaning.

Stupid example: Imagine you are a serial killer... perfect world for you would
be a world were you can kill at will ;) But you would say that a serial
killer cannot be in a perfect world (I'd say he cannot be in your perfect
world, not his).

So unless there exists an absolute meaning of perfection, PU seems impossible
or I should say meaningless.
