Nevertheless A and B can be regarded as simple (B) and complex (A) geometrical forms, but then (C) is not a regular geometrical form at all. Therefore, they seem to be completely different. But if one observes them in detail and with utmost precision regarding their size one would find out that they are quite similar (almost identical) regarding their size. Therefore A, B, and C are not completely dissimilar; they only appear to be so.
