The Basics of Judaism: G-d & Torah: The Perfection of the World:
Was the world perfect when it was created?
Some commentators relate the word BARA ("created") to the two-letter
stem B"R, which has the connotations of clarity (B'RURAH) and
choiceness (B'REIRAH). This supports the idea that the world was
created in a perfect state. Note also that when man was created, he
was put in the Garden of Eden, a "perfect" place.
