Circle plus line equals spiral or helix

Judith Koons observes that ‘the functioning of the universe is not reflected in hierarchy or separation, but in a circling dance of spheres, orbits, and rotations. Life on Earth may be seen as a circle….’ (ewl, 51). But humans recognize too time’s arrow, which makes things linear. Circle plus line equals spiral or helix. This can be seen from the electron’s probable orbit to spiral galaxies, from DNA to the predator-prey relationship. Failure to recognize this natural principle can lead to death, or worse.
