isn't it clear that the unit-diameter sphere
should be the generic "unit of what ever?"

(the area of such a sphere id pi spherical diadians.

there is a rather constatnt refrain
by the Fulleristas, that "the Greeks went wrong
in concentrating upon the hexahedron," although
it is actually the only shape *as an infinite matrix
of hexahedxra* that is self-dual. but,
so is the tetrahedron, with obvious felicities as
there are in thesrtudy of the trigon
in the planar "world" of flat land.
