|Fig. 987.240 Subdivision of Tetrahedral Unity: Symmetry
#3: Subdivision of Internal Octahedron:
- Bisection of tetrahedron face edges describes a congruent
- The spinning of the internal octahedron on axes through
the opposite mid-edges generates the six
great circle system of Symmetry #3.
- The six great circle fractionations subdivide the
octahedron into 48 Asymmetric Tetrahedra; each
such Asymmetric Tetrahedron is comprised of one A Quanta
Module and one B quanta Module.
- Exploded view of octahedron's 48 Asymmetric Tetrahedra.
