either that or, .... Oh no...God !!!!!!!!
A circle is closed, but the area within it is defined by both the distance from its center to the outside in relation to its circumference. The
center to outside is defined by one wanting to make a circle, but the distance of circumference by itself can be infinite depending on the number of
revolutions one wants to measure. By measuring the circumference without a cycle, or division, the distance becomes infinite, and part of the whole
and connecting to its beginning all at the same time, but also immeasurable in this way.
This cannot be said of a triangle, or a square or any other geometric shape, which has definite points that define distances of the perimeter based on
its center.
Pi has no end, because it tries to equate a linear measure with an infinte measure, where the linear measure is always defined by the person
theorizing the radius.
This is why a circle is attributed to God in this mathematical way. It is comparing finite to the infinite or vice versa with only one number that is
irrational.
