FIGURE OF THREE CIRCLES
In this figure of three circles, a doctrine is provided for placing circles within one another, where any
circle is equivalent in containing capacity to any other, regardless of the fact that one is located
To measure this figure's equal parts, we follow the method we used in the preceding figure of 3
triangles. It is useful to know the measurements of this figure, as it teaches the way to place one
circle inside another so that the contained circle is equivalent in quantity, essence, form and matter
to the one containing it.
And the senses can tell that house a. is equivalent to house b., and house b. is equivalent to
house c. Further, this figure is useful for essentially and naturally equating the circle with the
triangle, given that a. in this figure is equivalent to a. in the figure of three triangles, and the same
with b. and c.
