Share Article

An account about a discovery of a flaw that was found by a product designer.

"The reason why this flaw was never previously discovered is because it is hidden behind a double, optical illusion," says Howard.

Did you ever wonder why there are so many problems on the planet? According to M.L. Howard, author of the book "The Flaw", it is because there is a flaw in creation. “This flaw exists in almost every invention and system and might even be a plausible explanation for the cause of natural death,” says Howard. “The reason why this flaw was never previously discovered is because it is hidden behind a double, optical illusion. Even the most brilliant minds in our world could not have seen it unless they were analyzing an invention or system from a particular perspective.”

Howard discovered the flaw when designing a software functions chart in 1988 while working for a major bank in Toronto and has been analyzing the discovery, in secret, since then. The publication of this book marks the first occasion that Howard is sharing the discovery.

The word “flaw” is used in the book's title because so many people believe we live in a perfect world. Howard discovered, at least in this one instance, the creation of our world is not perfect, but is in fact flawed.

In part of the book, Howard discusses the process of perfecting an invention or system, which helps eliminate or reduce the effects of this flaw.

The cover of the book has its own message in it. One of Howard's views is that this flaw could explain the cause of natural death. Hence, the cover is the image of death on a black background.

"The Flaw" is a nonfiction book that explains what the flaw is, how it was discovered, and what the world might be like if the flaw had never happened.

The book is available in a paperback edition at and by Kindle ebook.
