One of the earliest discoveries of the modern era is due to Mrs Alice Boole Stott. This is that one can convert various polytopes into each other by expanding things.
[...]
One can build these polytopes as vectors, if one has a suitable coordinate system. The t_0,1 becomes not just two operations, but the coordinate (1,1,0), whose mirroredge reflection in the walls of an oblique coordinate system gives the truncated cube.
The vectors are for the cross polytope these. q = sqrt(2), The resulting edge is 2. The primary cell is one where all values are sorted from greatest to least, and made positive. This means, eg for (1, 5,3), the primary coordinate is (5,3,1).
0 (q,0,0,...) = cross
1 (q,q,0,...)
2 (q,q,q,...0)
n1 (1,1,1,1,1,1) = cube
The generalised cubesymmetry uniforms of edge 2 has the coordinates A.q + B, where all values of 1 to A occur, and B is 0 always or 1 always. So, we find, a figure 2q1, 1q1, 0q1 corresponds to q,0,0 + q,q,0 + 1,1,1 = x3x4x.

do I get your lace cone concept correctly, if I would translate it into what elsewhere is called wedges?
I.e. the top base (say) has to be degenerate?
So, the tetrahedron, positioned as point  triangle, is a lace cone with respect to its top base (vertex only), thus it is a pyramid in fact. But it is not a lace cone with respect to its bottom base, as the triangle already is full dimensional.
The tetrahedron, positioned as line  gyro line, is a lace cone with respect to either base (both are not full dimensional).
Correct?

lace tegums
The dual of a lace prism is a lace tegum. Just as a lace prism is a progression from base to base, the lace tegum is the intersection of lace cones.

antitegum
The dual of an antitegum is an antiprism. It's the lacetegum of a figure and its dual. All surtopes of the antitegum are antitegums. The prismatotope is a simplexantitegum, for example. The Hass antitegum is the diagram of connections of the surtopes of a polytope. It is in essence, the antitegum of the polytope itself. The "antitegmal sequence" is the sequence of 'decent of the faces of the dual', where one considers at various points the intersection of a cube of size x, and a octahedron of size ax. This corresponds to parallel sections of the corresponding antitegum. In the case of the regulars, the centres of surtopes of every order occur at the same point, so the antitegmal sequence passes through the truncates and rectates in order.
So, the tetrahedron, positioned as point  triangle, is a lace cone with respect to its top base (vertex only), thus it is a pyramid in fact. But it is not a lace cone with respect to its bottom base, as the triangle already is full dimensional.

1 what is exactly ment by incidense, is there a clear definiton for this, and how is it quantified in the matrix?
2 what do the coloums stand for? Are these the same as the rows, but then why is a_ij not equal to a_ji?

There are four shapemaking products, which make the four families of infinite regular polytopes.
1. pyramid product, which makes simplexes
2. tegumproduct, which makes the crosspolytopes
3. prism product, which makes the measure polytopes
4. comb products, which makes the cubic honeycombs.
One element of the product is f(), applied over the Euler sum (eg for a cube, 6h + 12e + 8v). The product of the elements has a f(ab..) = f(a) f(b)...
There are two different elements that might be added, which leaves four different parts.
n. Adding an element at N=1 (nulloid, essence), makes the product into a draught, rather than a repetition.
c. Adding the element at N=n, (content, body), makes the product into one of content, rather than content.
If E represents the euler sum (eg 6h+12e+8v), then
pyramid = c + E + n = draught or drawing of content > simplex polytopes = point ^(N+1)
tegum = E + n = draught or drawing of surface > cross polytopes = diagonal ^ N
prism = c + E = repetition of content > measure content = edge ^ N
comb = E = repetiton of surface > cubic product = girthing polygon ^ (N1).
The products of surface only make sense when there is a surface
