|The importance of geometry is not based on its practical value, but rather upon the fact, that it analyses eternal and inconvertible items and also is looking to raise the soul to absolutely truth.
The 5 platonic solids belongs to the polyhedra, a spacial system of polygons.
There are 5 Platonic Solids:
In nature you meets the platonic solids in different crystals (cobalt, copper ore, fluorite, pyrite - cube, oktahedron, dodekahedron forms). Also plankton especially the radiolarians show us the form of a cube, a oktahedron, a dodekahedron and a ikosahedron. With the viruses many own a protein-mantle which has the form of a icosahedron.
