This is higher dimension conjecture of Problem 3845 in Crux Mathematicorum and Theorem 2 in here:

PS: This figure is very nice, this is also generalization of Brianchon’s theorem, The Pascal theorem, the Seven circle theorem...etc..... with higher dimension (These are some very nice theorems in plane Geometry). But I don’t know why some one vote down?

I don’t think this question is not good than:

Does this geometry theorem have a name?

The Eyeball Theorem generalized

But the questions above have many vote up. But why some one vote down my question?

My question: The conjecure as follows true for $2$-sphere. Is the conjecture true for n-sphere $(n>2)$?

Conjecture: Let two circle $(C_1)$, $(C_2)$ on n-sphere $(O)$. Let $1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6$ be six arbitrary points in $(C_1)$. Let $1'$ be arbitrary point in $(C_2)$. The circle $(121')$ meets $(C_2)$ at point $2'$. The circle $(232')$ meets $(C_2)$ again at $3'$, define points $4', 5', 6'$ similarly. Let $P_1, P_2, \cdots, P_6 $ are the center of circles $i{i+1}{i+1}'i'$ for $i=1, 2, \cdots, 6$. Are three planes $(P_1P_4O)$, $(P_2P_5O)$, $(P_3P_6O)$ share the same line ?

  • Circles $(P_1)=(122'1')$, $(P_4)=(455'4')$ are yellow.

  • Circles $(P_2)=(233'2')$, $(P_5)=(566'5')$ are green.

  • Circles $(P_3)=(344'3')$, $(P_6)=(611'6')$ are blue.

    $\begingroup$ On the $n$-sphere with $n > 2$, if two circles meet at a point, then they don't necessarily meet at another point. The question seems to be not well-prepared. I vote to close. $\endgroup$ – Ivan Izmestiev Jul 28 '18 at 18:18

If I correctly understand the construction, everything happens in the $3$-dimensional affine space spanned by the circle $C_1$ and the point $1'$. (In particular, $C_2$ has to lie in this space or the points $2',\dots,6'$ won't exist.) Since everything is also on the surface of an $n$-sphere, we can confine attention to the intersection of the affine $3$-space and the sphere, which is a $2$-sphere. So the general case reduces to the case of the $2$-sphere.

    $\begingroup$ And for the two-sphere it is obvious: they touch the ellipse with foci at centers of circles $(C_1)$ and $(C_2)$. For the proof your just need to check that perpendicular bisectors to $11'$ and $22'$ forms equal angles with $P_1C_1$ and $P_1C_2$. $\endgroup$ – Arseniy Akopyan Jul 28 '18 at 13:35
