to rhombic triacontahedron. Both examples you giver mention the
"triacontahedron". My emphasis was that in Synergetics I, the rhombic
triacontahedron or triacontahedron if you will, were not mentioned in modularity
nor volume 5. Not looking as though they are on Fuller's radar screen as
candidates. I restate the premise that the fixation on a volume=5 polyhedron
and the non-acknowledgement of the cube/RT volume ratio 2/5 is why a 7.5 rhombic
triacontahedron was missed. Lastly, some of the points made in reference to the
triacontahedron in Synergetics I are rather forced for meaning. But I am sure
you understand exactly what it all means.

Fuller on at all...... Nowhere in Synergetic I is the rhombic triacontahedron
mentioned, though the 120 LCD spherical triangles suggests it.

Sure Kirby wants me to go back to synergeo group, but I have no interest I'm not in a cult or do mathematics in a cult. Anyway here are some numbers.
triconta = 7.5 tetra vol. according to Kirby I agree
so 7.5 x 24 because there is 24 tetrahedrons in his unit vol. tetrahedron so this MUST than = to 180 modules that is why I say synergetics has NO relation to a rh. triconta
and he is acting ALL confused where I got the 180 number from.
