In the preceding blog, we focused our attention on the expansion and contraction of the hexahedron and the octahedron. Each Platonic solid has a special relationship with one of the other Platonic solids. There are two concepts within projective geometry that are of particular interest for us and they are duality and polarity. For our purposes in describing the movement of the platonic solids, I am just going to focus on duality. Simply put, the dual of something is its opposite.
When to comes to the Platonic solids, there are three sets of duals. We have already discussed the tetrahedron and the unique fact that it is dual to its inverted self. We have also discussed the hexahedron octahedron relationship. In this blog I will focus on the dodecahedron icosahedron relationship. The dodecahedron is the dual of the icosahedron. Let’s dive deeper into this relationship.
From a projective geometry perspective, we are concerned with the faces of the shapes and the corners or vertexes of the shapes. The face of a dodecahedron is a pentagon. Each face can also be called a plane. Each plane has a middle point to it. The face of an icosahedron is a triangle. When you place an icosahedron inside of a dodecahedron, each vertex of the icosahedron touches the dodecahedron at the midpoint of each plane. See the image on the left below.
When you place the dodecahedron inside the icosahedron, you get the same result. Each vertex of the dodecahedron touches the midpoint of each plane of the icosahedron. Because of this unique relationship with the other, they are referred to as duals of each other.
Now for the movement within Metatron’s cube. They actually expand and contract within each other. While the dodecahedron is contracting, the icosahedron is expanding until they change places. The movement starts out as the left shape and then progresses to the right shape.

The Platonic solids function multidimensionally sustaining life and creating form in our world. They work transmitting consciousness between dimensions, between our third dimension and the fifth dimension. This pulsating action of the duals actually opens the portal between the two dimensions. That is why it is being mentioned here.
Consider the possible movement within Metatron’s cube. Each Platonic solid rotates independent of the others on an axis. And each Platonic solid can rotate on a number of different axes. The rotation can be forwards or backwards and the speed can vary. Now add in the expansion and contraction and you see that there are many different combinations of these variables that are possible. Each different combination produces a unique energetic frequency which then defines its manifestation into matter. Select the variables and set it into motion and you get manifested matter.
Fortunately for us, we do not have to memorize the particular details of all these combinations. We rely on the consciousness of the Platonic solids themselves to determine the variables based on the intentions we set when working with them. There will be much more about the Platonic solids moving consciousness between dimensions and how we work with them using directive thought when we get to discussing healing with the Platonic solids.
I realize that it may be extremely difficult to visualize this expansion and contraction motion within a rotating Metatron’s cube. Don’t worry. I am including this ebb and flow motion in order to more accurately describe the complex motion within Metatron’s cube. Try to create a rotating image of Metatron’s cube in your mind’s eye as best you can. We really use the mental image to help us keep our thoughts focused on the outcome we wish to achieve.
