Description from the Publisher

This application demonstrates the curious relationships wherein a tetrahedron can be inscribed in a cube in two different ways and a cube can be inscribed in a dodecahedron in 5 different ways. It also demonstrates a kind of quantum fluctuation or beating as a heart does, in which the tetrahedron oscillates back and forth between the two positions in which it can be inscribed in the cube, and in which the cube oscillates within the dodecahedron.

Phyllotaxis is the study of the successive arrangement of radial parts of a growing plant, such as the leaves on a stem, or the seeds in the head of a sunflower. This application generates a simple phyllotaxic arrangement of circles.

Mnemonic Curve is a game in which the object is to remember and repeat a sequence of mouse-clicks within a group of circles. Mnemonic Curve demonstrates principles governing our ability to remember a sequence of choices.

Visualize a 3-dimensional golden-rectangular-solid that is analagous to the 2-dimensional golden-rectangle, which can be sub-divided recursively so that each left-over rectangular solid has the same proportions as the original rectangle.

This application is a laboratory for the creation of automata. An automaton is a system of circles moving relative to one another in a hierarchical fashion which create cruves which are a superset of epicycloids and hypocycloids.
