    And, just to get really odd, if you cut off the outside points of a SoD...you get a HEX

    And for refrence, here's the whole quote from H4T:
    I still don't know how to tie this all together, or if it's even the way to go,
    but I came across something else interesting, regarding the *12* Tribes of Israel:

    (picture of pendant)

    This describes the '12 tribes':
    http://www.templesanjose.org/Judaism...y/12tribes.htm

    Some people are wondering if the *box* could be a triangle?
    Well, just look at all those triangles! And, there are *many* more than 12,
    if you look at it like puzzles 50 and 71 in the companion book!
    BTW, how *do* you edit posts in here?

    We is havin' --- Fun with Geometry 101

    HEXAGON = the inner geometric form - HEX - Eleri is referring to - also known as HEXIAMOND

    http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Hexiamond.html

    HEXAGRAM = the 6 pointed star

    http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Hexagram.html

    and the MAGIC HEXAGRAM {hmmm-could have some fun with this one}

    http://mathworld.wolfram.com/MagicHexagram.html

    POLYIAMOND = the isosceles trapezoid in which the five triangles are contained [figure 5.1 illustrates what I was trying to verbally describe] - also known simply as IAMOND

    Hunnytree -

    I was trying to point out the letters in BLUE.

    The key is in tHE teXt.

    Possibly adding not detracting from the thoughts here.

    Default Page 19 star

    Ok, before you all get caught up on this star of David idea, keep in mind that the star wheel traveler thing on page 19 which is a 5 pointed star, also has 5 to a side (following the same rules as mentioned previously). It's also a hex if you take out the outer edges. And although it only has 10 parts to it in the actual star, if you counted the outer circle parts you get 15, which further reinforces 5 to a side, and is also a prominent number in the book (fairy numbers page 2). How many points does a ten sided triangle have? 11 - one peice nary = 12. Do I put any stock into it? Not yet.

    If you want to, you can make anything fit, you just have to try harder for some things than others.

    Yes, I've studied the carpenter's tools. And yes, the Traveler star is a pentagram, but I don't think it matters what you put on it or take off, I don't see any hexagons, dOaOb. I see a pentagon in the center, no hex's. And yes, potentially 15 compartments. About the five to a side...you're right, if you use a center "hub" like the Traveler. Don't agree that 15 is the number of compartments we'd be looking for. Don't think the Traveler is the 12-compartmented, 5 to a side, thing of beauty the SoD is either. You don't HAVE to make it fit. It just plain fits. But then, I'm just kinda transfixed at the moment by it. And you, obviously, are not. I will probably move on sooner or later. You, obviously, already have.
