The five PLATONIC SOLIDS are the first models one makes when beginning the study of Sacred Geometry.Those five shapes are the TETRAHEDRON.the CUBE,the OCTAHEDRON,the DODECAHEDRON,and the ICOSAHEDRON.There is an embedded knowledge revealed in the act of making the models.I call it "visceral learning".It is a type of direct understanding unmitigated by the intellect.Some call it cellular learning.The embedded knowledge to which I refer is the intuitive awareness of certain correspondencies,ratios and proportions of these five shapes and how they interact with one another.
This piece is a sort of side exploration of the associated symmetries of the cube.It has 3 distinct dimensions ,height,width,and depth.Here's another attempt to illustrate XYZ orientation,this time surrounding a sphere which helps to conceptualize the idea.
Space navigation seems so similar to virtual 3D rotational programs,does it not ?
