The Platonic Solids have been studied for thousands of years. They are named for the Greek philosopher Plato who hypothesized that the classical elements were made of these regular solids. Plato equated the tetrahedron with the “element” fire, the cube with earth, the octahedron with air, the icosahedron with water, the octahedron with air, and the dodecahedron with the stuff of which the constellations and heavens were made. Therefore, one could conclude that all matter in the universe is made of the Platonic solid shapes.
