The perfect shape of the cycle has two important qualities: its strong dependence of a centre and the infinity of its outline.

And of course a lot of architectural and mathematical problems couldn’t be solved without the magic that happens when a divine circle is drawn on a spread of paper. Pythagoras knew that as well as Leonardo and even the economy got an idea of circles when Kondratjew came up with his theory.
