OF THE SQUARE AND CIRCLE CONTAINED.
(1) When the perimeter of the Square is 1270, that of the circle is 998, and
|1270||=||NumfioV - The Bridegroom.|
|998||=||Numfh - The Bride, the ‘Korh kosmou’ of certain Gnostics.|
|2268||=||IhsouV o anqrwpoV.|
(2) When the square is 656, the circle is 515, and the square lozenge within the square is 464.
|656||=||MessiaV - The Messiah.|
|515||=||ParqenoV - The Virgin.|
|464||=||¢H Mhthr - The Mother.|
(3) When the Square is 1224 - the circle is 961 (or 31²). These, as already shewn, are ta teich and ¢H kainh ¢Ierousalhm - the Heavenly city and its peribolus. But the joint number 1224 + 961 is the TeicoV Kuriou - 2185, and the lozenge within the square measures 866 - Adwnai.
(4) If the measure of the square be 2185, the circle becomes
1716-1717, and the inner square or lozenge 1545.
2185 = ¢O aiwn tou Qeou (teicoV kuriou).
1545 = ¢O Tektwn - The Builder - title of Christ.
And 2185 - 1545 = 640 = The Kingdom of Peace, which is basileia eirhnhV.
The circle, taken at the lesser valuation 1716, stands for h yuch = The Soul.
