SHOWING HOW RATIOS CAN BE LINKED TO DEGREES OF A CIRCLE...
AND
HOW THE SMALLER THE ANGLE THE MORE FREQUENT THE PULSE BEAT

This drawing is still another way of depicting ratios according to polygonal shapes within a circle. Any ratio with the number 3 in it, for example, would have a degree of 120, since dividing a circle into three sections, and joining these sections at the center, yields an angel of 120°. The numbers used are then 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 16, 20, 24 and 45. They are arranged in a three dimensional shape as though they were constructed of clear plexi-glass. It is easy to see that the nearest wedge of five winged shapes based on the ratio 5:6 Eb+ would have 60° as its angle (6 sides of a polygon) and the 5 wings to represent the other part of the fraction and suggesting pulse beats.
