 The Hieroglyphic Monad
1
THEOREM I
It is by the straight line and the circle that the firstand most simple example and representation of allthings may be demonstrated, whether such things beeither non-existent or merely hidden under Nature's veils.
THEOREM II
Neither the circle without the line, nor the line without the point, can be artificially produced. It is,therefore, by virtue of the point and the Monad thatall things commence to emerge in principle. That which is affected at the periphery, however large itmay be, cannot in any way lack the support of the cen-tral point.
THEOREM III
 Therefore, the central point which we see in thecentre of the hieroglyphic Monad produces the Earth,round which the Sun, the Moon, and the other plan-ets follow their respective paths. The Sun has thesupreme dignity, and we represent him by a circle hav-ing a visible centre.
