Energetics

The dodecahedron is one of the five platonic solids, having been studied extensively since antiquity, with the philosophy of Plato (the “Platonic Solid” namesake) being extensively written about in Plato’s “Timaeus” (c.360 BC): “God used [the dodecahedron] for arranging the constellations on the whole heaven” with Aristotle later naming the dodecahedron “aether” or “The Fifth Element.” Throughout history, from Plato, Euclid, Kepler and Robert Moon in the 20th century, the dodecahedron has been studied and applied to all manner of mathematics, chemistry and physics, redefining the human understanding of reality.

Spiritualists posit that the 5 platonic solids are the building blocks of all reality, with the dodecahedron emanating the energetic wave of the creation force throughout the universe.
