Squaring the Circle

Submitted by: Kira Hunt
Description:
Squaring the Circle is a geometric exercise of taking a circle (in this case, the largest one) and creating a square with the same area using only a compass and a straightedge. This process can only be approximated, as such, "squaring the circle is sometimes used as a metaphor for trying to do the impossible" (Wikipedia) The proportion of the smallest circle to the medium one is equal to the ratio of the size of the moon to the Earth (3:11 or about 27.3%).  Coincidently, 27.3 is also the number of days it takes for the moon to orbit the Earth, and is a proportion found elsewhere in the movement of heavenly bodies. The suggestion of a yin yang symbol originating from the 'moon' is a representation the moon's influence on the tides of the Earth, the calm and the storm - a reminder of the cosmic influences that created life on Earth and provide for our continued existence.
