Sacred Geometry and the E8 Model

I first knew about Wizard Gynoid's work during the Rezzable Garden of NPIRL Delights, with her M.C. Escher's "Stars" installation and was enchanted with her E8 polytope installation at Burning Life. I nally got a chance to stop by her Temple of Sacred Geometry with its pieces referencing mandalas, endless knots, and more...
Her handcrafted polyhedra are really lovely and I went over to Rezzable Visions to see more...Including the beautiful virtual model of Garrett Lisi's E8 polytope. Why is this so fascinating to me? Besides my love of quantum and theoretical physics, it could be the answer to everything...

Thanks for the comments! You should run by ButlerCC sim quick, because a newer version of Dr. Lisi's E8 is on diplay there. Not for long though. I'm looking for a more permanent home for it.
