The magnets really set this geometry off ! (But of course they are not included)
Watch the video below to see how I align the magnetic fields to the geometry so that it flows in one circuit.
The magnets are 4mm neodymium spheres that can be ordered from Chinese suppliers or from ebay in the USA. They give the geometry a solidity and weight and energy that is quite magical.
This is one of my studies in 3 dimensionalizing the tradition Metatron's Cube design. Each 'shell' has 12 spheres just as the traditional design has 6 circles touching the innermost circle.
If the centre of each of these 24 spheres were joined to every other point we would have an exact 3D analog of the 2D Metatron's Cube. By analogy then if the 2D form is to be known as Metatron's Cube, then this form must be one dimension higher and be known as Metatron's Hypercube
I believe the secret of Metatron's Cube lies in its higher dimensional expressions, in particular the 4 dimensional Metatron's Compass also available in our Sacred Geometry Web
