The observable signifi cance of one of these shape contiunity, originating on the suggestions aspect, is transposed into greater cellular types. The purest cellular shape, the cos mic one, notwithstanding, is just created during the liquidation of gravity (through removal of fabric ties). This second (Fig. sixty six) is imagined as taking place whereas the pendulum is in complete swing. it is going to circum scribe a circle that's the purest of cellular kinds. the need for a backward and forward movement of the pendulum from a hard and fast element has been eradicated The newly created shape (Fig. 66a) is still a similar no matter if the movement starts off from left towards correct, or from rieht towards left. altering size of the radius, mixed with peripheral movement, trans varieties the circle into the spiral.
