I don't give a single second's care in the world to whatever you want to say about the matter. You need to be reasonable. Compression reduces the file-size. That means it is being distorted in some fashion. It doesn't matter what is done to it; the end result cannot possibly be the same as uncompressed. There's just no math for it. Now it might look nice and pretty, and virtually the same is just fine for most people; but there is certainly going to be degradation in anything that is ever compressed, ever. It can be audio, video, or a photo. Compress it and make it less and it is less.
