About the Sphere, Circle, Quadrature, Vortex and Spiral

  • The spherical form represents the search for the “central axis” in each of us. Coming from oriental thought it has arrived in occidental philosophy, as say the wise men about the Soul of the World. This geometric form encompasses all other possible forms, since all the harmonious divisions of space are symmetrical classes derived from the sphere. In addition, the spherico-circular form has long been considered the serene image of eternity, identified as both the point of departure and the point of arrival.
  • The circle creates fascination because it is the perfect figure. In it all the points are equidistant from the center. All the parts possess the same properties and the beginning and the end are the same. Because of this, it has always been considered the symbol of eternity of time and the infinity of space. Without beginning and end, the circle is an immeasurable figure for which was created the purely imaginary measure, Pi. One of the more important tasks that the old geometricians gave themselves was to find the quadrature (squaring) of the circle, a way to measure the area.
  • This procedure for measuring the circle has been so named because the first geometricians that measured it inscribed squares, rectangles, hexagons, etc. whose sides become shorter and shorter until they coincided with the curve of the circumference. With squaring, the circle has come to be defined as a polygon with infinite sides.
  • Why to attempt to measure the immeasurable? Why seek something finite to approximate the infinite? Because geometry was always been connected to cosmology, i.e. an explanation of the order of the universe. Kepler described the universe as composed of straight lines and curves, and the solar system as having the form of polyhedrons, one within others.
  • At the aurora of modern science, Galileo said that the great book of the world is written in the mathematical characters and the only ones who will be able to read are those who know squares, triangles and circles.
  • Well, cosmology distinguishes the invisible plane, infinite and immeasurable, from the visible plane, finite and measurable. The first, unseen, is only known through the second, the manifest. To measure the circle by means of finite rectilinear figures signifies a search for a way to comprehend the incomprehensible.
  • In natural science the circle is known as the original form of beings. In fact the study of vortices (or what are called whirlwinds and waterspouts) in air and water reveals this to be a circular helicoidal movement in the interior of a wholeness also in movement. The movement of the vortex makes it a part with a life of its own in the interior of the moving wholeness, and even though independent, it is inseparable from the wholeness from which and in which exists.
  • The ascendant spiral, that is the figure of the vortex, appears not only in the galaxies, children’s hair and tornadoes, but also has been discovered to be the genetic helix for DNA, the origin of all known life. And not only this. Science has discovered that any vortex (water, air) moves according to the same laws that Kepler discovered for movement of the solar system - and that objects launched in a vortex always maintain the same directions - such as fixed stars and the firmament. The vortex is the original movement of matter, solar system, and life and has been the figure of excellence for representing the ascension of the soul in the direction of the infinite and invisible.
