Hello everyone !
The little Greeks played with ancestors of spinning tops and spheres (first terracotta yo-yos).
But also with the toys of Dionysus, polyhedra that Plato considered the primary structural components of the creation of the world:
- a) the regular tetrahedron (4 faces, 4 vertices and 6 edges) which symbolized fire,
- b) the regular hexahedron or cube (6 faces, 8 vertices and 12 edges) which symbolized the Earth,
- c) the regular octahedron (8 faces, 6 vertices and 12 edges) which symbolized air,
- d) the regular icosahedron (20 faces, 12 vertices and 30 edges) which symbolized water.
Have a nice day everyone and have a good game;)
