An m-sided regular polygon has m sectors. A regular polyhedron with C vertices, E edges & F faces have mF
sectors with (C+F) corners and (E+mF) sides. When the faces of the five Platonic solids are divided into their
sectors, the table above shows that they have 550 points (corners), lines (sides) & triangles, where 550 =
10(1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10) = 10×55, where 55 is both the *tenth* triangular number and the *tenth*
Fibonacci number (see Article 50 (Part 1) & Article 50 (Part 2) for the definition of Fibonacci numbers and how they
appear in sacred geometries). This is another amazing example of how the Decad (10) determines the geometry of
the five Platonic solids. The appearance of this number is striking evidence that they are the regular
polyhedral representation of the "Cosmic Tree of Life" (see also **Maps of Reality/Platonic solids**).
They contain 500 (=**50**×10) geometrical elements other than their
**50** vertices. This shows how ELOHIM, the Godname of Binah with number value
**50**, prescribes the geometrical composition of this archetypal system. Each half of a Platonic
solid has on average **50** corners, sides & triangles in its faces other than vertices.

More details about the properties of the Platonic solids and their prescription by the Divine Names can be found in Article 3 (WEB, PDF).
