The circle, a symbol of harmony, cosmic and transcendent heaven in relation to the earth. Extended point, it shares with it the same symbolic properties: perfection, homogeneity, absence of division, absence of distinction.Again the circle, the circle, symbol of the Universe, the whole, the entirety, the universus precisely, unus (one) and versus (wrapped) Plays with the stone Mohamed, leads the carnal gray where and how he decided, wraps the hieratic circle in bandages of ancient wisdom, fit to protect, preserve. Thus the ancient Egyptians, in the sign of Uroboros, chased eternity and averted the human fear of finiteness.

But Mohamed's perfect circle does not remain closed, it splits, transforms, takes dual form, as many fearful cells as humans can disperse from the opening, for all life is entropy, and the circularity of thought only a beautiful fairy tale. It will be the dualities, the differences, that embracing and recognizing each other to infinity will recompose the perfection of the whole, for the Universe provides no separation, not even between immanence and transcendence. Abolished firsts, shared and defeated fears, it will be an eternal embrace the protective deity of our becoming.
