(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); By definition, a quantity that is "perfect" is absolute. That requires perfection to be non-interactive with imperfection, else, perfection would become corrupted by the exchange/interaction. Therefore to observe a perfection while being imperfect, is to corrupt the perfection, rendering it to be "less" than perfect.

Perfection, like nothingness, is unattainable even via conceptualization.

Or is it?

For example, the geometric object known as a circle can exist as a definition, if not as an actualization. The abstract definition tells us certain properties of a curvature with a constant unchanging radius via a 360 degree rotation but can a perfect circle be visualized by the imagination?

In the real world, a perfect circle[or "perfect" geometric object of any kind] cannot exist. Yes the uncertainty principle.

Thus the real world is not perfect. Perfection seems to be prevented via the laws of physics. Nothing is certain, even the laws themselves; they are approximately exact but not exactly exact?

An infinite[and perfect] intellect would be able to have its cake and eat it too. The best of all perfect worlds would be ours,but that is not the case!

Conclusion?

Perfection does not exist.

An infinite intellect does not exist.
