“Hence the title of the post: circle or spiral. I much prefer spirals as they expand or contract a thing, while going in circles doesn't do much at all except wear out the rotation and things get flat after they are exhausted. ”
A while back, we were talking about linear and circular time. Some folks preferred circular time over linear. I suggested, how about time as a spiral? It then we had to consider whether the point of the spiral began at our birth, or, rather, was the spiral wider at our birth but getting smaller and smaller as it spirals through time.
Great minds think alike!
