Dali and Phi
http://gogeometry.com/wonder_world/salva...angle.html

What never gets mentioned in the various mathematical studies is that the figure is an unfolded tesseract (4 dimensional hypercube), also called the net of the tesseract. A folded hypercube would have four physical dimensions and not be visualizable. Just as the six faces of a cube could be unfolded to form a flat cross, the eight 3D faces of a tesseract could theoretically be unfolded into this shape.

The animation at the top of that page looks really trippy!

I'd not seen that image before, thanks for the link.

The animation is of course a journey into and out of the phi-ratio generated embedded squares.

Yay for hypercubes.

I'm back baby! Thanks for everyone who sent me PMs asking what had happened to me.
