According to some theory that I can't recollect entirely, and for that reason I have absolutely no clue about who should get credit for it, "good" does not exist, and one can only speak about "better". And even that is purely subjective.
However, I do like to think that I'm good. Not because I really am, but because the thought of having reached an absolute and unreachable point in the knowledge hierarchy pleases me. No, I'm not good at all, I'm just a bit better than those who have just started, which makes sense because they have yet to build up experience.
Because there is no good, there will always be better. Although I have come from not using strict, lexicals, modules or even warnings, I now love strict, lexicals, modules and warnings. My recent code is often object oriented instead of the "line noise with a function" I used to write. I didn't know I was going to learn to like these things, and I didn't know I would ever see the OO-light. What is to come is unknown, but we learn all the time.
As long as only perl can parse Perl, humans will never be able to comprehend all of its secrets and actually remember them all. That is not necessarily a bad thing.
