One

The most appropriate symbol of unity is the imperceptible mathematical
point which is arbitrarily situated at the intersection of two lines or
in the centre of a CIRCLE, and which, through
being displaced in space, begins a line, or creates a surface, or gives
an idea of a third dimension. A point is ONE on the verge of generating
everything. The number 1 symbolizes MAN, erect,
a standing stone, phallus, PILLAR, a vertical
stick (Julien, 303).
