This thread is here to allow people to understand how trasmutation circles work, and how they channel the energy into this world.
let's start with Alphonse's seal
ignore the outside ring and the 'squiggle' coming down and you have the symbol for creation, while the 'squiggle' is actually a symbol for the soul, so basically, it means a created soul. this is core to the series as alphonse's existence is questioned throughout the early parts of the series, even his shortened name as spoken in japanese 'Aru' is displaying this, as 'aru' means to exist in japanese, but as an object, while 'iru' is reserved for people in this manner.
if anyone else wants a different transmutation circle explained feel free to post a request with either a picture of the circle, or a description of where it is found and who uses it.
These 4 elements build the world we live in. in transmutation circles these are used for two things:
1:controlling the element
Get your own transmutation circle made by posting a request on the thread here
If you have attempted Alchemy by clapping your hands or by drawing an
array, copy and paste this in your signature.

Uh, I don't know how that could be true, since subatomic particles were unknown in the Middle Ages.
Anyway, can you provide your source for the 17th century quote? Even if it's not the original meaning of squaring the circle, it might have been an inspiration for the series.
Also, you can find his work here:
I want to know if there's any method to drawing circles, or at least if there's any system created by Arawaka herself.
