How can you get something infinite out of nothing ?

"The point appeared in the circle
And was not;
But it was the dot
That the circle begot."

In geometry, a point has no dimension. It has no diameter, no depth. It does not really exist in space; it is really only an idea. Yet when you start to move it, its trail creates a line. Move it around another point, you create an arc. Continue describing that arc, and its end will eventually meet its beginning, and form an endless circle.

From nothing, something has taken form. From the point, a circle emerges. It is the existence of the circle that proves the existence of the point. The point is not-being; the circle is being.
