Drawing of conics is absurdly inexact when bigger numbers are involved
Not a Problem
When drawing a simple conic x*y = N where N is on the order of 10^12, the graph is about 0.5 off from the graph of y=x/N around x = sqrt(N).
It is probably relevant that if I place a point on the conic, it actually appears off the drawing of the conic and exactly on the function graph.

Well, you can test the boundaries of math software using big numbers, that's true. But to come to which conclusion?The 'simpleness' of the conicness is not the issue.
I'm not sure there's any need for your hyperbolic language.
It's harder than you might think to do this
