Default Is There Anything Truly 2-Dimensional in a 3-Dimensional Reality?

Could be wrong but I'm thinking on my feet here and blurting out that there is nothing truly 2-Dimensional in a 3-Dimensional reality like ours.

In the same way that 4-Dimensional objects can only be expressed in 3-Dimensional terms when imprinted in our world, 2-Dimensional shapes only exist as mental abstractions and cannot physically exist on our plane of reality.

Am I right?

Start to shoot me down and this will stimulate my SOL gland and make me think a bit harder about the issue, because I suspect there are some personally profound observations that will come out of it if I can be arsed to nut them out and don't immediately forget I started this thread.
