yea thinking about the same. that they're subconsciously wanting to keep their biological side even though they are striving for perfection. they're unable to leave all the imperfections behind because subconsciously they can't. however, it doesn't explain why they're not using their tech or their biological potential to their most efficient and most improved. that's what i'm trying to understand. trying to understand their concept.
Keeping their biological side is not subconscious; they plainly do it by design: they approach perfection by assimilating other cultures' creativity. They don't practice creativity themselves per se. Your bottleneck appears to be at the location where you ascribe your own notion of what they should do in place of their stated goals.
