A Freewrite on Perfection

It can't exist because it would involve feeling happy, which you can't really do (or at least understand) until you've felt sad. And feeling love, which doesn't have the same impact unless you have something you don't love. And some of the most beautiful things are there by accident, which wouldn't happen in a perfect world because no one could mess up, and because of destruction, which also wouldn't happen. And, to make matters more complicated, everyone would have their own idea of what a perfect world would be. Maybe you don't think a perfect would would involve happiness or love. But I do. And if you don't, we can't have a perfect world because we don't agree. So, a perfect world cannot be constructed. However, with the right attitude, people, and a good deal of effort, I do believe we can experience moments or even hours of it. It would involve selflessness, happiness, and love as a foundation.
What else would it involve for a perfect world?
