2+2 == 4 not because of some fundamental principle of the Universe, but because that's how we've defined integers. You can find lots of physical cases where you take two X, add another two X, and don't get four X. Suppose you have two droplets of water on a rubber sheet.

2 + 2 for pure numbers and 2 + 2 for arbitrary groupings are not the same thing, and you know it. Or if you don't know it, you're an idiot.
