Humans are by their very nature flawed and imperfect beings. Their innate flaws even go so far as to taint their concepts of a "perfect world". Concepts like a utopia are impossible to achieve for humanity, and kill off all other animals when they achieve it. However, while perfection is a flawed concept that can never make it into the real world, it is possible to make yourself better, more aware of your nature and the universe around you.
It takes a certain figure and frame of mind to even attempt to improve oneself, and the path is an arduous one. A person seeking to better themselves has to resist such temptations as laziness, pride, arrogance, and Apple products. It's so easy to fall to these pitfalls and halt any progress in improving oneself. It's even easier to start bragging about a $700 dollar paperweight that no one in their right mind cares about, and many people do this every day. But to avoid those pitfalls is to become a better and richer human being, one free from the influence of the mass media and the vengeful ghost of Steve Jobs.
