In the animation, Tensegrity Amoeba (Quicktime
movie 585k), the tensegrity jitterbug (method of cycling between
positive/negative tetrahedron-see TENSEGRITY JITTERBUG section) has been
incorporated in a design which uses seven axes of rotational symmetry to
fuse 3 & 4 fold with 5 fold symmetry in a cyclic transformation of one
tetrahedron through the 5 timestar tetra positions. The (4) purple axes are
perpendiculars to the 4 planes of the tetrahedron and the (3) green axes
are perpendiculars to the 6 planes of the cube. These same axes would be
perpendiculars to the 4 pairs of triangular and 3 pairs of square faces in
the VE (vector equilibrium). As the model transforms, the purple axes rotate
on diametrically opposing vertices of the pentagonal dodecahedron and the
green axes intersect the p-dodeca mid-edge points as each of the 5 tetra are
formed.
