A while ago I scanned an article that talked about a new theory that proposed that a circle was actually a type of triangle. I don't remember any more about it than that, but it has stayed in my mind. Being interested in shapes this idea has seduced me into exploring the possibility by drawing. These shapes are definitely triangular in nature, yet I can see that if I push the three points into softer curves it could eventually become a circle.
Khan Academy tells me that you need to define 3 points to make a unique triangle or circle. Triangles are used as symbols in eastern and western philosophies and religions. In the west it is used to represent the holy trinity, while in the east it symbolises the connection between mind , body and intellect. Often a triangle is encompassed by a circle, which it turn represents a source of power, like the sun.
