Michelangelo, The Torment of Saint Anthony, c. 1487-1488

Slow motion would feel like nothing ever happened on earth. Happening is a word felt by people who have experienced something of use. There are threads of a divine embroidery that God would usually want us to feel but not necessarily touch or see. These are used to mend a broken heart to close to God. Circles are not just flat plains, they do equal the equator. They also do move. But different circles have different purposes. Some would be to equate a circumference. Others would be to equate the surface area. Circles are for special purposes and do move for some people but not others. 

Martin Schongauer, 
The Man of Sorrows with the Virgin Mary and St. John the Evangelist, 
c. 1475
