As background,the Euler-Schlaefli Equation for Dimension three is V - E + F - C = 0, where V=number of vertices of a polyhedra, E=number of edges of the polyhedra, F=number of faces of the polyhedra, and C=number of cells of the polyhedra (a cell is the number of areas space is divided into by the polyhedra).<BR/><BR/>Point-to-point, each vertex strives –<BR/>V lonely souls,<BR/> cries the Euler-Schlaefli.<BR/>Elements of dimension null<BR/>walk logic’s edge…<BR/><BR/>-<BR/><BR/>and reach ascension;<BR/>E outreaching arms,<BR/> cries the Euler-Schlaefli,<BR/>Dance along in dimension one,<BR/>look face-to-face…<BR/><BR/>+<BR/><BR/>at the midnight sun.<BR/>F all-seeing eyes,<BR/> cries the Euler-Schlaefli.<BR/>Mirror ‘pon mirror in dimension two,<BR/>reflecting their bigotry…<BR/><BR/>-<BR/><BR/>isolating you<BR/>in one of C cells.<BR/> cries the Euler-Schlaefli – <BR/>a battle cry of prejudice<BR/> echoing through dimension three,<BR/>where you always have more choices<BR/> but where you’ll never be as free. <BR/><BR/>=<BR/><BR/>Void.<BR/> Vacuum.<BR/> An empty world.<BR/> And even here, in barren land,<BR/>"Order!" <BR/> ,cries the Euler-Schlaefli <BR/> and order came<BR/> and structure was<BR/> so space<BR/> <I>is</I>Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
