Here is a short puzzle story that I created. People on other forums seem to not understand it for some reason, but everyone I spoke to in real life understood it. But no one I knew so far got it right the first go! Can you? Be honest. This is purely logical, not that much mathematical.
One day God had a task for an angel. He told the angel to write a perfect (in this case, “excellent or complete beyond practical or theoretical improvement”) essay about today’s weather. He told the angel to do his best possible job he could at writing the essay. The angel agreed and took out his pen and paper and began writing. While the angel was writing, God was watching him. When the angel was finished, he handed the essay to God. The angel had in fact written the essay at the fastest possible speed it could have been written. However, God said, “This essay is perfect, but you could have done better.”
What did God mean or possibly mean by the 2nd part of that sentence?
God did not say "you could have done it better," but just "you could have done better." This statement was intentionally vague, but what possibilities does it offer?
P.S. If you figured out the answer, how can it be concrete (in other words, no other options), yet not purely mathematical?
Since I put one of the correct answers here, I'll give the correct answer to the first alternate complete correct answer. There are two more. If you honestly got this answer without looking, please post so I would know someone did.
