Birds, humans, gods weaving a web of magic here among the hedgerows there among the rocks and among the stars the play of eclipses and diamond-ring effects there seems a pattern common to all. What man makes of man is another tale though that hangs by us alas! ~ CR Carrol Cox <[log in to unmask]> wrote: The Icosasphere 'In Buckinghamshire hedgerows the birds nesting in the merged green density, weave little bits of string and moths and feathers and thistledown, in parabolic concentric curves' and, working for concavity, leave spherical feats of rare efficiency; whereas through lack of integration, avid for someone's fortune, three were slain and ten committed perjury, six died, two killed themselves, and two paid fines for risks they'd run. But then there is the icosasphere in which at last we have steel-cutting at its summit of economy, since twenty triangles conjoined, can wrap one ball or double-rounded shell with almost no waste, so geometrically neat, it's an icosahedron. Would the engineers making one, or Mr. J. O. Jackson tell us how the Egyptians could have set up seventy-eight- foot solid granite vertically? We should like to know how that was done. --------------------------------- Have a burning question? Go to Yahoo! Answers and get answers from real people who know.
