The circle may represent global attention, which is an inclusive non-linear process. We use it to sense context, seeing many things at once such as the forest as a whole, to sense orientation in space, to hear all the voices in a Bach Fugue simultaneously, as well as what is sounding around us. It is an awareness of environment, imaginary, memorized, or external, without the focus of detail. In meditation, global attention is receptivity, it is openness, non-intention, or the empty mind.
(Pauline Oliveros)
