Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) discover the true movement of the planets were elliptical not circular as had been thought since the time of Pythagoras. Problem being that the circle was the highest and purest form of movement. So pure it is God in movement. Kepler reasoned why this elliptical orbit was so...absolutely brilliant. “Kepler has no doubt that ideally the heavenly bodies would travel in perfect circles, but he reasoned that, because they resides in the material world, their spiritual purity was diluted by the influence of matter, and hence the ideal circularity of their orbits was diluted with straightness - thereby rendering them eclipses. But even though the perfection God intended for them could not be fully realised in the material world, Kepler pointed out that because ellipses are mathematically very close to circles, the planets were striving to reach the divine ideal.” Margaret Wertheim, Pythagoras’ Trousers.
