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.
