"Perfection" Discovered Or Invented?

A corollary to "mathematics discovered or invented":

Mathematics works only in perfection, i.e., the concept of a perfect circle or a perfect square, or a perfect two (2+2=4). For example, a perfect circle (C = 2PiR) nowhere exists outside of the human construct. Every circle in nature fails to be "perfect" at some degree of measurement, be it atomic or subatomic.

So too the concept of two. . .be it two dogs or two apples. It is "perfect"- a perfect integer- but utterly insignificant without human application.

Therefore mathematics, modeling the universe with "perfect" concepts, is a faulty tool for describing an imperfect universe.

Mathematics is based on an invented concept -- perfection.
