    According to scientific analysis, which way does the geometry of a circle lend itself more towards, space or time?

    Please clarify your question, not sure what you mean ?
    Time does not normally have the geometry of a circle - what this would give you is a closed time-like curve :

    Closed timelike curve - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Whether such a thing exists remains subject to debate until we have a consistent theory of quantum gravity...

    The arrow of time traces a circle according to our "use" of time.
