Scaling and Packing of Icosa and Dodecahedron

I've been looking at various scaling and packing of the Icosahedron and the regular Dodecahedron. Here are some notes.

In these notes, the Golden Mean (Golden Ratio) will be referred to by the letter "p".

p = (1 + sqrt(5)) / 2 = 1.61803398874989484820...

Icosahedron Scaling and Packing - Here I look mostly at the Icosahedron. Packing Icosahedron in a particular way defines the Regular Dodecahedron.

Dodecahedron Scaling and Packing - Here I look at the scaling and packing of the regular Dodecahedron. These Dodecahedra interpenatrate each other. The Icosahedron shows, but in an unexpected way.
