Barnacles-perfect or imperfect?

Barnacles-perfect or imperfect?

"ZM Seung Sahn quotes from “Song of Dharma Nature”:
“The nature of the Dharmas is perfect. It does not have two different aspects.
“All the various Dharmas are unmoving and fundamentally still.
“They are without name and form, cut off from all things.
“This is understood by enlightened wisdom, and not by any other sphere.”

Thank you for your post.
The compass of Zen was my first introduction to Buddhism so I welcome the Kwan Um flavour.

Back in the days I would have responded "neither perfect or imperfect, neither the same or different" etc
Now I would say that perfect or imperfect is a fantasy the conditioned mind adds to perception, in other words an interpretation upon perception.
Both concepts are a fabrication of mind, as SS also used to say; "You make, you get"
