Liber LXV, Cap. IV, v. 54-56
54. This heart of mine is girt about with the serpent that devoureth his own coils.
55. When shall there be an end, O my darling, O when shall the Universe and the Lord thereof be utterly swallowed up?
56. Nay! who shall devour the Infinite? who shall undo the Wrong of the Beginning?
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."

Eternity - the circle is the motion (radiation?) of the pulsing center, the Hub which is Life-Death dance of Love, the motion of Hadit, ever-expanding, ever-Beyond.
Is there an end to this, a great climax, a culmination that destroys all?
No! The very nature of the Universe - of all there is - the essence of Being ("the wrong of the beginning") is such that this motion is endless.
