Panning
out to see more local galaxies:
The MilkyWay recedes, and we see our linked group 


Panning
out to see more local galaxies that define the Virgo Supercluster:
The MilkyWay recedes to a speck at the center of the
blue circular outline,
and we see the larger part of our Virgo Cluster at the
right 


Amazingly, recent galaxycluster mapping has shown geometry!
The local voids to outline Closepacked Octahedra!!!
(I lost the link to references
on this  if anyone has updates or similar discoveries,
please forward them to me. This is fascinating!)
This seems stunning, but is probably due to gravitational
/ expansive forces finding equilibrium in minimumenergy
vectors.
If we have 2 octahedrons (and presumably more in a 3D
grid) then we also have tetrahedral voids, because octahedrons
don't fillspace (like stacking cubes). It requires
alternating OctaTetra combination to fill
space in this type matrix.
More on the surprising geometry of this pattern below
...
Below:
This is the full pattern implied by the supercluster
geometry, it's what is called a 'Space Frame' trusswork.
It was discovered and patented by visionary genius Buckminster
Fuller and patented in 1961. One amazing feature
is that in examining the matrix you can find
all the other platonic solids outlined except those
with 5symmetry.
Look at these different angles of the octtet matrix
and notice you can see outlines of octahedra, tetrahedra,
truncated tetrahedra,
nested tetrahedra, cubes, cubes with tetrahedra inside,
rhomboids, and more ...
It was later discovered that Alexander G. Bell
has come upon the same structure in 1903,
but Bell was looking to build a practical lightweight
platform & didn't notice the deeply fundamental
nature of
the spaceframe as the maximum selfreinforcing structure
possible in platonic 3D geometry.
The most amazing thing is this arrangement happens
anytime spheres are packed together.
It's the most economical, space/energy conserving
arrangement of equal size spheres.
Spheres pack 12 around 1  each sphere in the matrix
is touching 12 other spheres and
connecting gridlines (force vectors) from the center
of each sphere creates our spaceframe trusswork.
Microwave data gathered by the WMAP satellite indicates
the
Universe may be in the shape of a 'chiral' Dodecahedron

a twelve sided polyhedron with pentagonal symmetry.
So ... My first question is how does the 6symmetry
spaceframe superclusters
matrix
relate to the 5symmetry dodecahedral universe
'shape' (not proven ... still hotly debated)!
hmmm ... the spheres pack 12around1 and the Dodeca
has 12 faces.
Just an observation ...

out to see more galaxy clumps and the full Virgo Supercluster
situated amongst
its titanic neighbors: Clouds of Galaxies & large
empty voids Surround our home.
The Scale of this scene is unimaginable, but keep on trying!!
