Snow Day! (Part Two)

In Part One, we were sledding, watching the situation in Baghdad out of the corner of our eye. For newcomers to this blog: we have a Bagdad in here too, a part of the McMenamins empire, and its decor is of course greatly influenced by that neck of the woods (Persia, Mesopotamia -- park at Tyre, proceed by car). In Portland, we always had "Attack Iraq? No!" bumper stickers, which many still wear proudly, along with these others ([1][2]).

David Koski phoned last night to recount his delightful visit with Fr. Magnus Wenninger. Right after we got off, I logged something to the Synergeo Archive (#32000 ):

phone log urner (OR) <> koski (MN) when: tonight, just now
koski: mtg with fr. m. wenninger went well (account)

then koski reviewed enneacontahedron, s. baer's result
= some 120 cells (10 + 20 + 30 + 30 + 30) all permutations
of two rhombi: rhombic dodeca's, and thin one with
diags ratio .618 1.618 (1/phi, phi).

ennea actually contains off center rhombic dodeca in a
way (only 1?) of building w/ these cells. g. hart another
authority on this.

many other topics.


I'm in the Pauling House at the moment, Don and Glenn telling maritime stories, snow stories, working to recruit David Shapiro of the Academy for Planetary Evolution (APE), to present on sacred geometry.
