# Is there really an Icosahedron here?

The Platonic solids are unique in many ways and are of interest to mathematicians, physical scientists, and spiritual teachers. We are interested in them because they are all nested within Metatron’s Cube. Some of the Platonic solids are easier to see than others. The icosahedron is very difficult to see in the image below. Some say that the icosahedron is not really a part of this two dimensional shape. My opinion is that we should let go of the two dimensional shape and focus on the three dimensional shape.

Whether the five Platonic solids are all contained within this two-dimensional image of Metatron's Cube that is shown above can be debated. Let's move on. The Platonic solids are all three-dimensional figures. They are easier to find in this three-dimensional image. The smaller icosahedron is shown in this image. It is in the very center of the 3D figure. There is also a larger icosahedron.

The icosahedron has twenty sides. A regular icosahedron has twenty faces, and each face is an regular triangle. Regular triangles have all three sides the same length. You can only see ten of the faces in the image below.

The three-dimensional model of Metatron’s cube that we are working to build is shown below. This model is only a partial model since it only shows one example of each of the Platonic solids. It is important because it shows the nesting of the Platonic solids within each other. This nesting allows them to freely rotate within Metatron’s cube. It is the rotation of the Platonic solids that generates the energy within Metatron’s cube.
