The Octahedron has 8 equilateral triangular faces, 6 points and 12 edges. It is two 4 sided pyramids base to base. Its dual is the cube which has 8 points and 6 faces. It is the air element. The shape of some oxygen atom and the oxygen nucleus. The shape of 30,000 pyramids around the world with another one upside down below ground, the shape of many crystals.

Could the edges of platonic solids be the convex overlaps of spheres as is the vesica pisces? Could they be the waves of electric light (moving back and forth (resonating) between the points (vertexes)? Platonic Solid, Electric Light, Pisces, Geometry, Waves, Crystals, Fish, Light Bulb, Crystal

Could the edges of platonic solids be the convex overlaps of spheres as is the vesica pisces? Could they be the waves of electric light (moving back and forth (resonating) between the points (vertexes)?

from Mathermatical Physics we find that when you vibrate the surface of a sphere, a spherical octahedron can emerge. This is one of the spherical harmonics.this allows the above structures to move in the "breathing" motion.
