I Started with Eight.
Eight led to this. If you think about eight long enough, you will understand.

News Flash: Big Snake on the Loose in Texas
This just in from Longview, Texas — a fivemeter (~16 foot) Burmese Python is on the loose. If you see it, do not approach. Retreat and dial 911. No kidding. Also: learn the metric system.
Circumslices
Regions between closepacked circles of equal radius resemble triangles, but with 60 degree arcs replacing the sides. As these regions are the only things left of a plane after all such circles are sliced out, and they each are outside … Continue reading

A Rotating Rhombic Dodecahedron with Rotating Tessellations On Its Faces
Several recent posts here have been of tessellations I have made using Geometer’s Sketchpad and MSPaint. To create this rotating polyhedron, I selected one of these tessellations, and projected it onto each face of a rhombic dodecahedron, using another program … Continue reading
Rotating Rhombic Triacontahedron with Tessellated Faces
The last several posts here have been of tessellations I have made using Geometer’s Sketchpad and MSPaint. To create this rotating polyhedron, I selected one of these tessellations (the one in the last post), and projected it onto each face … Continue reading
Tessellation Using Regular Hexacontakaihexagons, Regular Dodecagons, and Two Different (and Unusual) Concave, Equilateral Polygons
Hexacontakaihexagons have 36 sides, and dodecagons, of course, have twelve. When a regular hexacontakaihexagon is surrounded by twelve regular dodecagons, in the manner shown here, adjacent dodecagons almost, but not quite, meet at vertices. The gaps between these nearconcurrent vertices … Continue reading

Tessellation Using Regular Triacontakaihexagons, Equiangular Hexagons, Isosceles Triangles, and Isosceles Trapezoids
The equiangular hexagons are very nearly regular, with only tiny deviations — probably not visible here — “from equilateralness.”
