“God being defined by St. Augustine, as follows: ‘An infinite sphere, the center of which is everywhere, the circumference nowhere.’”

"In “Pascal’s Sphere,” Borges’ narrator lists dozens of variations of a single image, a circle that stands alternately single image, a circle that stands alternately for God, nature, the universe, infinity. Culminating his enumeration is Pascal’s image for the universe: “an infinite sphere, the center of which is everywhere, the circumference nowhere.” Indeed, Borges himself adds to the list in his story “The Library of Babel,” the Library is described as “a sphere whose exact center is anyone of its hexagons and whose circumference is inaccessible” (Labyrinths 52)."
