Alive: ③Being

What is this geometric shape that represents zero, infinity, and perfection all at once? Why does it call to us? Why does it find itself repeated down the aeons by religions, symbolizing the Centre?

I have always had an intuition that whatever Ultimate Reality might be, the circle is of... central importance. At the symbolic core of cultures and religions through history, representing just about every quality associated with the divine: “notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, all cyclic movement, God”, the circle is as eternal as it is simple.

A huge part of this was simply enjoying the process and iterating until something felt like it was touching a part deeper, which was the stopping point.
