There could be no such thing.  And this is a good thing.  Striving, 
problem-solving and creating -- is crucial for evolution and 
perfection is a state of stasis that defies all rationale.

circle, then that is a closed-system perspective. If you study what 
is inside the circle and everything outside the circle, then that is 
an open system perspective. - Buckminster Fuller
