Essay Abstract

The Trion-ReG is a fundamental structural unit of 3-D space on the basis of which a new geometry of 3-D space can be built: namely, the 3-D space in which no straight lines exist. To account for the curvature of space, this modification shifts the rules for a platonic solid, making the Trion-ReG the sixth such regular solid and a unique structure of space/time. Traditionally, there are five Platonic Solids with congruent angles and equal, flat faces. However, we must modify the rule and include curved surfaces; in which case a new solid emerges more rudimentary than the tetrahedron. Henceforth called the Trion-ReG, this new solid is described as follows: 2-vertices, 3-flexible edges, 3-equal faces, an inside and an outside and spin ability. The Trion-ReG can be used to generate new versions of the other five Platonic Solids.

Fascinating and original. A geometry with much potential, and as valid as just about any others around. I can't believe I'm only the second to post here. Perhaps as I'm also trained as an Architect so have an affinity with geometry.

I do hope you'll read my own essay, though rather more about kinetis, you may also enjoy the theatre therein.

Best wishes

Peter

If you do not understand why your rating dropped down. As I found ratings in the contest are calculated in the next way. Suppose your rating is
and
was the quantity of people which gave you ratings. Then you have
of points. After it anyone give you
of points so you have
of points and
is the common quantity of the people which gave you ratings. At the same time you will have
of points. From here, if you want to be R2 > R1 there must be:
or
or
In other words if you want to increase rating of anyone you must give him more points
then the participant`s rating
was at the moment you rated him. From here it is seen that in the contest are special rules for ratings. And from here there are misunderstanding of some participants what is happened with their ratings. Moreover since community ratings are hided some participants do not sure how increase ratings of others and gives them maximum 10 points. But in the case the scale from 1 to 10 of points do not work, and some essays are overestimated and some essays are drop down. In my opinion it is a bad problem with this Contest rating process. I hope the FQXI community will change the rating process.
