concentric hierarchy of nested polyhedrons

Musings on Math Pedagogy

The concentric hierarchy was complete over 40 years ago in its perfectly meaningless form.

The pattern is strong enough to have been embraced and celebrated, were Bucky a mathematician in the academic sense, i.e. if he were a Conway, the concentric hierarchy would be as famous as Penrose Tiles.

Mathematics is allowed to be meaningless, it just has to be correct.
