δωδεκά dōdeka - twelve
ἕδρα hédra - base, seat
Is this the seat of our 12th dimensional soul?

Here is a cut-out-and-keep version of the Great Dodecahedron, see how long it takes you to re-fold the folds of your unfolding mind. Hmmm!

The Great Dodecahedron has twelve faces. We can see six stars stuck on its outer bases from this angle. Find them in this picture by looking past the structures and seeing each flat base that each star sits on, light blue, dark blue, purple, black, red, yellow and then back to light blue. Its fun making your eyes flip through a series of visual dimensions just by altering your minds eye to see the desired star.

Plato also knew about sacred geometry and the Great Dodecahedron, that's why we call these shapes Platonic solids. Plato called the Dodecahedron the fifth Platonic solid, coming after the cube (earth), air (octahedron), water (icosahedron) and fire (tetrahedron). And yes, Plato did associate each element with a regular solid. The fifth solid, the Dodecahedron, the fifth element, "the god used for arranging the constellations on the whole heaven". Aristotle, Plato's student refered to this element as aether or ether. The scientific concept of ether - a background medium that pervades the universe - has been around for hundreds of years. But do we really understand it today?
