on completion and/or definition

from Tagore's - the parrot's training:
One day the bird dies. No one knew how long ago that happened.
The Raja’s nephews come to report the fact that the bird’s education has
been completed, since it no longer flies, hops, or sings.

thanks Nikhil

we seek clean precise definition - so that we can call up on completion, productivity, a checking off of the box.

yet.. is that killing us? is that keeping us from aliveness?
