Minimum system, triangulation, equilibrium of vectors, closest-packed spheres, and space-filling: the path toward the isotropic vector matrix has many origins, any of which can yield the unique omnisymmetrical array. The result of traveling all of these routes is a powerful awareness of the interplay of octahedral and tetrahedral symmetries in space. However, the more thoroughly we search the IVM, the greater the intricacy of these “intertransformabilities”­calling for a new level of analysis to keep track of our discoveries.
