Wabi-sabi. The beauty of the imperfect

Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese concept that makes reference to the beauty of the imperfect, the impermanente and the incomplete thing.
Nothing is perfect in the nature, at least in the geometric-euclidiano sense in that it conceives the West. Nothing is permanente because everything is in process, everything in life borns or dies. And nothing is complete because if outside, would be perfect and permanent, because the completitud does not exist in the nature; is only one abstraction devised by the man.
