Twenty-four circles with the centers the verticies of a 24-cell, plus one in the center.

Maybe I could draw the 24-cell itself, but the graphics package I'm using is so crude it's hard to draw straight lines.

I think these videos are useless. You are projecting 24 dimensions down to 3 and then 2. Almost everything is lost in the projection.

A 24-cell is a 4D object, not a 24D object. :lol:

24-cell is so last-century. The name is 24choron, which means it has 24 3d patches for its surface.

Says Wendy, our resident high-dimensionalist, who regularly sees into 8-9 dimensions with ease, like she lives there, and who invented the Polygloss, which is a much more consistent way of naming high-dimensional things than the currently-widespread, ad hoc terminology which is full of inconsistencies and that's oftentimes self-contradictory. :lol:
