Zubek's anxiety over the fact that his "puzzle" (he was
hoping to commercially market the thing as a toy) could be reduced to A and
B modules has led him to take the offensive, hoping to expose Fuller's
dissections as somehow fraudulent.

It was me who show you and the whole group that I build with synergetic modules FROM MY SET, you nor no one before had a clue my intention was to demonstrate that we dissecting the same damn cube by different method, and that synergetics is incapable to work at the lowest common denominator, where you missing a 9 module cube after all 72/8 = 9 correct ? there should be a small cube, 24/2 = 12 there should be a octahedron INSIDE A reg. tetrahedron correct? cubeoctahedron is SMALLER than a cube correct so your 72 module cube should contain a cubeoctahedron of 60 correct ? but you can NOT model any of these, that is why your oblate octahedron is 4 times that of a octahedron, so when you say you CAN duplicate my modules you are laying again, cause you not only not know but you nor bucky can not model nor were ever aware of this. You also made a comment in this post that you have more modules that are smaller well yes, so it mean that the claim do more with less is also wrong bec!
ause there is NOT ONE SIMPLE EXAMPLE TROUGH OUT THE WHOLE HIeRARCHY that you can do that, and NONE of your modules are smaller in relative sense, you know what RELATIVE means, correct? or would you like to do mathematics with me on this subject.
P.S. beside I have a vid where I have a date on it showing to YOU how I build all of synegetics with my modules, and showing clearly with your modules that the oblate octahedron aka. coupler is indeed TWICE the size of your octahedron and I showing this at 1-Freq. level as well 2-Frequency level, where this demo alone contradicts your own statements. This group of folks on this list by reading they responses ARE WAY more sophisticated that the cult of the handful of synergeo enthusiasts, her you will have hard time to convince ANYONE, cause the x.y.z. Does it all it is all stemming from a cube so student can stick to what they knew for centuries and still do tetrahedral accounting at the lowest common denominator and go where synergetics can not ever go.
I'm not interested in rehashing the same events over and over, I'm interested in to discuss geometry the way it should be dealt with and I have the tool for it, you DO NOT.
I love synergetics ONLY AS A REDUCTIO AD ABSURDUM where such clear case is very rare in deed, and that is the only purpose of synergetics and to all who trying to promote geometrical nonsense.
