Discussion of tapertopes, uniform polytopes, and other shapes with flat hypercells.

I'm writing down my version of polytopes.

It is currently the 1wd (first working draft).


The first is how the thing is typed up, with þ throughout, while the second is in simplified english. (ie using only latin letters).

Topics covered.

1. The fabric of space
2. Products
3 Antiprisms/antitegums
4. Truncates/rectates/apiculates/surtegmates
5. Strombiates/Runcinates/Cantellates/Cantetruncates/omnitruncate/vaniates
6. Developments: Spheration, surtope paint, periforms,
7. Progressions: the change from one polytope to another.

The dream you dream alone is only a dream
the dream we dream together is reality.

you're kind of mixing up the names of Ludwig Schläfli - who is famous for his accordingly named symbols {p,q,r,...}, cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schl%C3%A4fli_symbol
and Victor Schlegel - who is famous for his accordingly named projection diagrams, cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schlegel_diagram
