Ok if perfect circles can never exist then is it safe to assume that everything isnt made from them and that?

Instead its made up of a different shape and most likely a shape that is not exactly the same as other things that exist? Like snowflakes no two are ever the same would the "smallest" unit of mass also have the no two are ever the same rule apply to it?

    Like all speculations about perfection, infinity, and universals, yours is impossible to respond to.

    How would an imperfect, limited, temporal being, as all humans are, would be able to conceptualize what is beyond his ability to comprehend?

    When you ascertain that something is different or equal, you are using a set of sensors that are of variable use to different humans. To a blind man all all shadows of his perception are the same. Certain birds can find people miles away in the ocean, eagle and a pigeon can find differences where man can't see any. Perception and accuracy are limited by the sensors of the perceiver,of course, man extends his perception by inventing, telescopes, electron microscopes, etc.

    That is like saying there are only a four strings on a violin so there are only four notes. The different shapes are made by putting atoms and molecules into shapes like Lego bricks. Different molecules fit together differently to make a crystal of salt or a thread of nylon. Snowdrops are made from identical water molecules. The different shapes are caused by the microclimate in the cloud where the flake formed. The flakes are just different arrangements of the same molecules.

    The idea that no two snow flakes are the same is really a metaphor for a situation in which no simple solution has been provided to explain a range of variation.

    Strict shapes and sizes seem to occur in nature, or at least as we describe it in atomic theory. Any group of hydrogen atoms interacts in a predictable way with any group of oxygen atoms. I am not sure what happens as you go to smaller and smaller - quark and sub-quark scales. However it seems as if the particles could remain very idealized, being able to be described neatly, and being for all intents and purposes like perfect circles.

    It's safe to assume that the world we live in is based on what we perceive as imperfection. My theory is, a perfect circle can exist, but we do not have the tools to draw it on Earth. Even then, the tools only have to be as accurate as the tool that proves it.

    nop i think u got things wrong it is noly probality and as diffrent things are based on diffrent structure atomic so it is in sub atomic form that things will have same shape and that will be spherical and a sphere is a cirle in a 3 dimentions so very little things have spherical shapes also as the spherical shape hav less resistence and level of energy and every thing want least level of energy <like electrons want to go to least energy level shell posible > thats why i think u got things wrong as it is just probality that things will be circle or not

    That thought is amazingly lots a Gnostic one. Gnostics have faith that we've been born into a less than perfect international created via a less than perfect god. yet interior each and each people lies a divine spark waiting to be ignited via achieving enlightenment. whilst this happens we are able to grow to be suitable beings unhindered via the barriers and fears of our mortality.

    no because atoms are the same, obviously if a copper atom was different size then it wud be a different atom
