I believe that, on the contrary, we *do* live in a perfect world.

All the envisioning, seeking, yearning and striving to "change the world",
to make it "more perfect" are, in my opinion, expressions of its
perfection. It's not as though we are "here" and the world is "there".

Please observe that what I am saying is not the same as "this is the best
of all possible worlds." But, on the other hand, a healthy dollop of
Candide's optimistic naivete is part of the improvement stew.
