Platonic Solids as Building blocks

Like we’ve mentioned in our Platonic Solids Blog, the Platonic Solids are the building blocks of our Physical Reality.
And the amazing thing is, these building blocks apply on almost every scale, from the microcosm up to the macrocosm. Just like Thoth once said: “As Above, So Below”.

We’ll take you on a journey from small to big and show you how these Platonic Solids act as building blocks in our physical reality.

So let’s start with the microcosm, on the atomic level.

Platonic Solids as Building blocks on the Atomic Level

As we know, atoms are built of protons, neutrons and electrons. The protons and neutrons are closely packed spheres, similar to the Flower of Life.

The distribution of those protons and neutrons can be explained with different kinds of models.

But it was physicist, chemist and engineer Dr Robert J. Moon (February 14, 1911 – November 1, 1989) who proposed a model of the spatial distribution of nuclear protons, which involves the Platonic Solids.

Dr Moon, who was involved in the production of the first Atomic Bomb, got inspired by the ideas of Johannes Kepler of nesting Platonic Solids.
He researched the structure of atoms and came to the conclusion that the protons are not in the center, but always at the corners of a casing or a shell. He learned that the atom is built of multiple shells, with a different amount of corners (protons).

So how does this model work?

Dr Moon’s Model

Dr Moon's Model - Oxygen

In the center of this model is the cube, which Dr Moon suggested is the first stable structure with 8 protons in the nucleus. An atom with 8 protons is an oxygen atom. 62.55% of the Earth’s matter consists of Oxygen, according to Dr Moon.
As we all know, oxygen is very important for us to be able to breath and stay alive. Not only that, water contains oxygen as well. Without oxygen, water wouldn’t be able to exist.

Dr Moon's Model - Silicon

Around the Cube, is the Octahedron adding 6 protons to the 8 of the cube inside, with a total of 14. An atom with 14 protons is a Silicon Atom, which is 21.2% of the Earth’s matter.
Silicon is extremely important for biological life and your body. Especially for scar healing and for your skin. Silicon can mostly be found in sand, and is very abundant on our Planet. Besides, it’s also used a lot in computers as semiconductors.

Dr Moon's Model - Iron

The next layer around the Octahedron is the Icosahedron, adding 12 protons to the total. This creates the Iron Atom with 26 protons, which is 1.2% of the Earth’s matter, according to Dr Moon.
As you might know, Iron is necessary for our blood. But it’s also a natural magnetic element. Magnetism is something really special, because it works and will always work. It’s for a good reason why Nikola Tesla was so fascinated by it.

Dr Moon's Model - Palladium

And the last layer is the Dodecahedron, adding another 20 protons to the total. This creates the Palladium atom with 46 protons.
Palladium is a very important element, which is used in Cold Fusion. Cold Fusion is a very advanced form of Nuclear Energy which was only achieved once. Which is very comparable to Free Energy.

Dr Moon's Model - Barium

Other Elements

So the total sum of all the protons in his model is 46, which is exactly the first half of the Periodic Table. He believed every atom with an atomic weight over 46 was a combination of two nests of platonic solids. They were connected side by side, but were becoming more unstable along the way.

All the other elements simply are missing certain protons on certain corners of the Platonic Solids.
Dr Moon said that those elements with missing protons are slightly unstable. They’re looking for ways to bond, until they become stable.

If 62.55% of the Earth’s matter is oxygen, you might conclude that oxygen must be the most basic stable element.

Dr Moon’s Tetrahedron

Dr Moon left out the tetrahedron on purpose. He believed that it had a very different role. He stated it had to do with “Matter-Being Communication Logic”.

Up to today we can’t say for sure what he meant with that, but it seems to refer to consciousness interacting with matter, Quantum Physics. This has most likely to do with the photon. When you look at a photon it behaves like a particle. But when you’re not looking at it, it behaves like a wave. This is the so-called Observer Effect.

If you look at the geometry of the photon, it resembles the Merkabah a lot (two Tetrahedrons intersecting with each other).

Platonic Solids as Building blocks at small scales

So let’s take a look at the Platonic Solids at a slightly larger scale; molecules. This is where close packing of spheres also comes into play. As you might see on IBM’s photo. This is the first close-up photo of a single molecule and its chemical bonds made by IBM, which matches perfectly with the 64 Tetrahedron Grid.

The 64 Tetrahedron Grid is a complex grid built out of 64 Tetrahedrons, discovered by Scientist Nassim Haramein.

But there is more to molecules and the Platonic Solids as building blocks.
As you might know, molecules are built out of atoms. Some molecules have only one atom inside them. Others have two or more atoms in one molecule, like oxygen (O2).
Most molecules have 1 – 10 atoms inside. So basically, molecules are clusters of atoms.

If we look at larger clusters of atoms, you get fine particles (1000 – 100.000 atoms) and bulk (100.000+ atoms). Here comes the interesting part!

Japanese Scientist Satoru Sugano discovered Microclusters (10 – 1000 atoms), creating a new state of matter. He basically shot atoms of gold, one at a time, through a very small nozzle at each other. Strangely enough, those atoms decided to stick together. But the only way for those Microclusters to be stable, is to shape themselves in the forms of the Platonic Solids. But not only that, just like molecules, they act as a whole instead of separate atoms.

Microcluster Physics Icosahedron and Cuboctahedron

Molecules and Nano Crystals

Now if we look at molecular structures themselves, we can once again find the Platonic Solids as Building blocks.
For example, Methane and nano crystals:

Tetrahedral Methane Molecule EPG - Platonic Solids as Building Blocks
Pyrite Nano Crystals

But also Fullerenes come in many shapes, as Platonic Solids and Archimedean Solids. Fullerenes are complex carbon structures bonded on the Atomic level, for example Shungite, Carbon Nanotubes and Diamonds.
They’re named after Buckminster Fuller, he is seen as the Father of the Vector Equilibrium.

Let’s take a look at the scale of viruses. For example, the Pariacoto Virus. This virus has a size of just 0.3 nm (0.0000003mm). The Pariacoto Virus (PaV) is a nodavirus with a dodecahedral cage of RNA inside an icosahedral capsid. As you can see, the duals Icosahedron and Dodecahedron nest perfectly even in living organisms.

But also larger viruses like the HIV virus, with a size of 120 nm (0.00012mm), have an icosahedral body.

HIV Virus Icosahedron

Marine Life

If we look at a slightly larger size, we’ll look at Marine Life. In our Oceans we can find that some types Nanophytoplankton (2 – 20 µm) have Dodecahedral bodies.
It seems that our Oceans also use the Platonic Solids as Building Blocks.

Phytoplankton Dodecahedron

Let’s scale it up to the size of single-celled organisms, such as Radiolaria. They have a diameter of 0.1–0.2 mm and produce mineral skeletons made of silica. Those skeletons, most of the time, contain the Platonic Solids.

Radiolaria Platonic Solids

Platonic Solids as Building blocks at medium scales

The Platonic Solids can not only be found at microscopic levels, but also at scales which are visible to the human eye.
We’ll start at the smallest scale again and slowly build up to a larger scale. Keep in mind that there are many, many more examples. But it will be too much for this blog.

We’ll start with the Ho–Mg–Zn quasicrystal, which is shaped as a Dodecahedron. This lab grown quasicrystal its edges have a size of 2.2mm.

Ho-Mg-Zn Quasicrystal - Dodecahedron

But not only lab grown crystals are shaped as the Platonic Solids, they also occur naturally.
Gemstones such as Pyrite, Fluorite and many others, have growth patterns that are shaped like the Platonic Solids.

If we go bigger, we’ll get at the scale of man-made objects with the Platonic Solids.
Technically seen, we can’t count this as Building Blocks. But there is one interesting thing we might see as a Platonic Solid building block.

It is a part of a machine they used in the movie Contact (1997). In this movie, they used a dodecahedron shaped machine to open a portal through Space-Time to get into contact with Highly advanced Extraterrestrials. So the Dodecahedron is used as a building block for “building” a portal.

Platonic Solids as Building Blocks in the Macrocosm

We’ve now arrived at the scale of the Macrocosm, also the Universe has used the Platonic Solids as Building Blocks.
So let’s take a look at our own planet; Earth. Our planet (which is a conscious being) has Ley Lines which cover the entire planet as a certain grid.
Those Ley Lines happen to follow a certain pattern, it follows the vertices of the dodecahedron and the icosahedron.

Icosa Dodecahedron Earth Grid

Numerology and the Platonic Solids

But more Platonic Solids as Building Blocks can be found on the Macrocosm scale. But this requires some Numerology instead of Geometry. Like we’ve mentioned in our Numerology blog: Sacred Geometry and Numerology go hand in hand. If there is sacred geometry, then there’s always numerology.

As you know, every regular polygon has equal corners. Add all those corners up and you’ll get the total amount of degree that specific polygon has.

The equilateral triangle has a total of 180° and the square has a total of 360°.

If we then look at the Platonic Solids and their total amount of degrees, we’ll get some interesting numbers.
The Tetrahedron gets a total amount of 720°, the Octahedron gets 1440°, the cube 2160°, the Icosahedron 3600° and the Dodecahedron 6480°.

Platonic Solids Numerology

So what about those numbers? These numbers are appearing in our Solar System!

For example our Moon and the Cube; The Cube has a total of 2160° and the diameter of our Moon is 2160 Miles (99.97% Accurate). Or Astrologers who divide the Great Year into twelve astrological ages of approximately equal lengths of around 2160 years per age, based on the vernal equinox.

But there are more “coincidences”. If we add the total degrees of the first four Platonic Solids together, we’ll get the diameter of the Earth. These four Platonic Solids are also associated with the Four Earthly Elements Earth, Water, Air and Fire.

5040 and Plato

Now if we add the Octahedron (1440°) + the Icosahedron (3600°), we get the very special number 5040.
Plato’s favorite number.

So what is so special about this number? 5040 is a superior highly composite number.

A complex Mathematical term meaning no other number below it has as many divisors. There are only 10 of these numbers under a million (more of these numbers can be found above a million), which is pretty rare. Plato called 5040 the Perfect Number.

Platonic Solids and Time

So where can this number be found?
To start, the sum of the radii of the Moon and the Earth is 5040 Miles (99.97% Accurate).

But there is more to this number. Since it not only can be found in space, but also in time. But this needs a little more explanation. If you look below you can see a somewhat complex calculation.

5040 = 1x2x3x4x5x6x7 = 7! (7 Factorial)
5040 = 7x8x9x10 = 10!/6! = 7!
7! + (10!/6!) = 10,080

And here comes the link with time: there are 10,080 minutes in a week; 7 days × 24 hours × 60 minutes = 10,080
But 5040 has also exactly 60 divisors, the same amount of minutes in an hour or seconds in a minute.

Another fun fact about 5040; it can be divided by all the integers between 1 and 12 with the exception of 11.

So last, but not least, we have one more special number to go. If we add the Tetrahedron (720°) + the Octahedron (1440°) + the Dodecahedron (6480°) we get a total of 8640, multiply that with 100 and you get the diameter of our Sun (Sol) with 99.95% Accuracy.

Platonic Solids as Building Blocks MacroCosm Sun Sol


In this blog we took you on a journey from the Microcosm on the atomic level up to the Macrocosm, showing you that the Platonic Solids are the building blocks of our physical reality. And yet, there is still a lot more evidence out there that we haven’t covered in this blog.

But it’s not that strange that these shapes are the building blocks of our physical reality, since they’re extremely balanced and equal. And we all know that nature tends to balance things out equally. A good example of nature balancing surface tension with the help of the Platonic Solids can be seen in this video:
