I came up with this while playing with my compasses...the eye, gateway to the soul.

Phive

Fives are found in apples, flowers, hands and feet. Our nearest planet, Venus, goddess of love and beauty, draws a lovely fivefold pattern about Earth as she whirls around the Sun.

Five

I've always been fascinated by the number five (my birthday is 5/5), now, after all my research into geometry and number, it fascinates me even more. Dividing a circle into five is like learning a secret, without getting too nerdy about the whole thing, you start by dividing a circle into 4, and the measure for dividing by 5 is found underneath it.

"It seems that the soul... loses itself in itself when shaken and disturbed unless given something to grasp on to; and so we must always provide it with an object to butt up against and to act upon." Michel de Montaigne, Essais, 1580
