A great circle can be considered as unbounded but only a continuous rotation can make the path infinite. That is angular momentum. This circle has a bounded symmetry. The start and endpoints of the circumference can be set at any point. Though the symmetry is broken if we tilt the plane it sits on and rotate the new orientation..
