You see every circle is really a different object you must remember in that drawing one circle is not the same thing as drawing another circle both are separated by space and time which proves they are different Objects. And so a circle begins where you first draw the line and ends where you last draw the line which happens to be usually around about the same point, and so a circle has no definite begin as every circle has its own beginning, a circle's beginning and end are the same point and all the rest of points and the line which develops the loop to create the circle is the middle, so it really depends on where you first draw it, and it must have a beginning or else the circle would never have been drawn and it must have an end or else it would not form to create a circle, thus a circle must have a start and end, and they must be the same point and they must be the point in which you first and/or last draw them.

A circle is the set of all points that are of equal distance from a point with that distance being greater than zero -- no "beginning" and no "end".

Good point. But if you "color in" all the points you don't need a "beginning" or an "ending" that are at the same point. Might take a while, though. Afterthought: . . . or use segments of arc . . .
