Filling Space with Dodecahedra
You remark, of the questioner, that "It's sufficiently clear, in my humble opinion, that that's not what he has in mind." Actually, once I check some of his other recent questions, I suspect that what the questioner mostly has in his mind at present is something else. RomanSpa (talk) 06:23, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

PLATO user interface innovations
Hello — The long-ago creators of the PLATO system actively sought a design that wouldn't confuse or intimidate users who were new to computers, including young children. (To use an anachronistic term, they wanted PLATO to be “user friendly”.) In particular, there were multiple innovations in the layout of the PLATO IV keyset (File:PLATO4kb.jpg) which I'd like to mention in a Wikipedia article. Might you know of any published writings on the design rationale of the PLATO IV terminal? Thanks! 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:34, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

Good day polytoper
Are you aware of the "magical" values derived here? (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:600-cell_petrie_polygon.svg?uselang=fr?uselang=fr)
I am attempting to uncover how the origin of the "magical" values midst aforlinked orthographic hypercube, petrie polygon graph.
If you control find (ctrl+f) "// Magics! Hard to find projection directions" You shall observe the values to which I am referring.
I see that you are quite familiar with measure polytopes (5d orthographically produced hypercubes).
How do you suppose these magic values are attained?
I would like to include this in an artificial intelligence I am developing.
- I wish Rocchini would publish more about his techniques. I cannot say what the "magic" vectors do, let alone how he found them. Here's what I might do:
- Generate a large number of candidate vectors and evaluate them for the quality sought (whatever that is!).
- Examine a few of the best candidates and the constraints that affect them. Look for an analytic optimum.

Extended petrie polygon orthogonal hypercube qualms :(
Thank you kindly for your prompt response.
I had long envisioned that the aforsaid "magic" values, indeed manifest as some form of vector multiplier, that directly relates with the petrie polygon's dimension cardinality.
Furthermore, I suspect it is linked with Coxeter Dynkin approximations per petrie polygon, measure polytope.
In exemplification, I have noticed that per orthogonalized hypercube of n dimensions, each PX and PY array, contains a periodic sequence of exactly n directional projection vector multipliers.
As to how such multipliers are achieved, I am uncertain.
I thank you. Naturally, I shall indeed try to adroitly collapse this schematic into malleable resultings via acute analysis.
On his page he mentions that he utilizes Coxeter-Dynkin diagram polytope definition, in tandem with his Kaleidoscope algorithm, wherein he stipulates the polytope's vertex collection exist. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JordanMicahBennett (talk • contribs) 10:51, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
