The struggle for the definition of normality is over. Normality is simply the mindset, judgment, ethics and cultural values of the majority in any given circle. Perfection, on the other hand, is a completely different story. Many have speculated the connection between perfection and symmetry, simply that symmetry Is perfection. But also that the struggle is endless and without goal. As soon as the pyramid has been built, there is an urge to tear it down and start over. The illusion of Symmetrical Perfection.
Symmetry is a perfect model, with every corner and peak matching the next one. It is a construction based on harmony. Where thoughts and emotions can flow freely, without distraction or fear of individual actions derailing. Its beauty has been described in geometry, mathematics, science and philosophy. The harmony can be pleasing when it supplies balance, and any asymmetrical imperfection tips the scales. If the seducing idea falls, so does the individual. No predictability of the next stop, no point of progress and no point of being.
Difficult emotions are on the rise when work has to be done, dependence in the vicious circle of normality restrains the individual from drawing a new picture independently. Counseling with significant others produces a lot of actions, but no effect. Advice gets rejected with the immediate indirect response, Don’t give me work to do. If the individual could have thought of her choices, instead of chasing the illusion of a predetermined destiny, she would have found life more exiting and less cold. Like the path of Symmetrical Perfection she has wandered all along.
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself. – Friedrich Nietzsche
