13 seeds / 36 rods #Color #M-size.
+ 1 seed extra.
The Vector Equilibrium is formed by pointing 8 tetrahedrons inwards, the exact opposite of the Star Tetrahedron, using the same amount of rods but needs 1 seed less.
The Vector Equilibrium, as its name describes, is the only geometric form wherein all of the vectors are of equal length and angular relationship (60° angles throughout). From a physics standview it represents the ultimate and perfect condition wherein the movement of energy comes to a state of absolute equilibrium, and therefore absolute stillness and nothingness. As Buckminster Fuller states, because of this it is the zero-phase from which all other forms emerge.
“The vector equilibrium is the zero starting point for happenings or non happenings: it is the empty theater and empty circus and empty Universe ready to accommodate any act and any audience.”
- Buckminster Fuller
