Tok presentation: HELP needed asap

I was thinking of doing a presentation on perfection, can it ever be achieved and is what we consider perfect, really perfect?

Need help on linking this to Tok areas and guidelines on how to construct a good presentation on this.

Any help would be most appreciated!

Well, start by defining terms, I'd define perfection for quite a while, since you really need to question what it is? There is no doubt that a hydrogen atom is a perfect hydrogen atom, because it fits its definition without deviation, is that what perfection means, or does perfection require something else? How can we have perfect art, when to be perfect, it has to be relevant and creative, but when it is relavent and creative it is relative to the observer, and therefore not perfect? Is a perfect cirle one that fits the definition of a circle, or the closest real world approximation to it? Can we make the distinction? How do we achieve perfection on a necessary continuum between two very bad things? Is it right in the middle, to one side, or is perfection a myth?

Anyways, my one and only guideline would be to pose more questions than you seek to answer.
