Summary: We use the symbol of circle as a unit, but know little of circle unity. Folding circles demonstrates qualities belonging to unity of the whole. Unity is not constructible, but can be experientially realized in transforming the circle through folding. Traditional 2D \& 3D geometry and fundamental math concepts are revealed in the folds of the circle. Within every polygon and random shape is a circlepattern of organized movement that can be revealed through a proportionally ordered folding process.
