circle deformed by point

This definition allows you to deform the shape of a circle with a point.  It uses the closest point component to calculate the relationship between points on the circumference and the disturbance point, and then draws vectors which move points along the circumference inward.  The merge component allows you to redraw the system of points and reinterpolate the circumference.
